Cancer Screening

The NHS currently offers national screening for 3 cancers, bowel, breast and cervix.  In addition, locally, we have an extra screening test for bowel cancer that is offered when people are aged 55y.

Because of COVID-19, you might have to wait longer to get an invitation or a follow-up appointment for screening. There might also be changes to what happens at your appointment. This includes the staff following strict guidance on infection control to protect you and themselves. This means that you won’t be able to take someone with you to your appointment without advance permission and in very exceptional circumstances.

Your results might be delayed, so ask at your appointment how long it might take and who to contact if you haven’t heard in that time. It’s important to remember that screening is for healthy people with no symptoms.

 If you notice any unusual changes to your body that don’t go away, talk to your doctor. In most cases it won’t be cancer, but it’s best to get it checked out. Do not wait for your screening appointment.
