Mr Patel's Story

Mr Patel, the ex-Mayor of Brent, explains his recent experience of bowel cancer screening and why it is important to carry out the home screening test sent every two years once you reach the age of 60.

"It’s a very simple process, I did not suffer any pain or discomfort, and it did not take much time. And they found it. They confirmed it is there. When you receive a test kit in the post, you must act on it immediately.”

In this second video Mr Patel tells his story in Gujarati.
