Patient Feedback Shows The Importance of Bowel Cancer Screening

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme recently received some great feedback from a patient, thanking them for their work on Bowel Cancer detection. The new, easier to use FIT test detected blood in 75 year old Ron’s stool, prompting further testing which confirmed a cancerous growth.

“My thanks to you and your team for the probable life saving service”

Ron, 75, Aberdeen

This feedback was further backed up by a comment on the post from another grateful patient who stated:

“It is indeed thanks to this excellent service, as I myself may not be in such good health as I am today… It goes without saying that early detection is key!”
