Francesca's story

Francesca explains how she would never have known she had polyps without going for the test. She encourages anyone who gets the Bowel Cancer Screening invitation to "go for it". 

The whole procedure is very simple.. The team is very professional and informative..

Patricia's story

Patricia was initially nervous and thought she would be embarrassed - but her experience of Bowel Cancer Screening was very positive.


She also had two polyps removed reducing her chance of getting bowel cancer.

It was over so quickly, I returned back to work.. Effectively I had the procedure in my lunch break.
