Important Patient Message 4 December 2013, updated 11 February 2015 - Bowel Screening Programme

 

Update: We have recently sent out text messages to some patients who apparently did not respond to the request to take part in screening. Thank you for the useful information we gleaned from this! We are going to send out a follow up text quite soon to remind those patients of the way to get tested. If you want to contact us about this in any way please use "Send Us Feedback" from the column on the left, or respond as advised by the text. Better still, go straight to the helpline below for more information.

 

Aged between 50 to 74 and wondering about bowel screening? Well, it may make a change from shopping on line to find out a bit more about this important test - and IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE. The uptake rate in Scotland for doing this simple, painless and free self test every 2 years is only a little over half - not exactly a pass mark! The practice is participating in a programme to boost the numbers, so COME ON KA11, GET TESTED. More information on 0800 012 1833 (free call) and at www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk

 

Two more things you can do...

  1. We have a limited number of advice packs that we have managed to obtain for our patients on bowel screening. Use our "Send us Feedback" section in the left hand menu to send us your details and request one.
  2. Teach yourself more by using the links in: https://bourtreehillmedicalpractice.secure-gpsite.scot.nhs.uk//userfiles/docs/DCE On Line Primary Care Film Flyer.pdf
