Bowel cancer scheme extended

21st May 2007

A ground-breaking cancer screening programme that targets older people is to be extended across parts of East Anglia.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital became one of the first areas in the country to pioneer the bowel cancer screening service last August and since then 20,000 people have been tested with one case picked up each week. Now the service, which is designed to detect the condition early, is being extended into the Great Yarmouth area and the Waveney district of Suffolk with men and women aged 60-69 invited to take part.
