Bowel screening

Bowel cancer.  Don’t take a chance. Take the test.

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. As it is more common is people over 50 years of age, The Scottish bowel screening Programme invites all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years.  The practice would encourage all patients invited to participate in the screening to do this simple test which aims to find bowel cancer at an early stage in people with no symptoms.

If you’re not quite in this age group, you can still encourage your older relatives to take the test by learning the Poo Song, or sharing the video with them!  For more information and to help spread the word, visit:
