Bowel Cancer UK Visit Welland Medical

On Tuesday 11th October we were pleased to welcome Robin Johnston from Bowel Cancer UK to talk to our staff about the disease, provide useful ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle and highlight the symptoms to be aware of.

The trained volunteers at Bowel Cancer UK have personal experience of bowel cancer and present the facts about the disease as well as sharing their own experiences. Bowel cancer is very treatable but the earlier it is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.

The talk covered:

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Risk factors
  • Healthy lifestyle and bowel cancer prevention
  • NHS bowel cancer screening programme
