NHS Cancer Screening Programmes

Belmont Medical Centre recommends patients take part in NHS Screening Programmes when an invitation is received. Screening is a way of testing healthy people to see if they show any early signs of cancer.

Bowel Cancer Screening

Bowel cancer screening can save lives. Screening aims to detect bowel cancer at an early stage, when treatment has the best chance of working. The test can also find polyps (non-cancerous growths), which might develop into cancer. Polyps can be removed, to lower the risk of bowel cancer.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland people over the age of 60 are invited to take part in bowel cancer screening. In Scotland, screening starts from age 50. You will be invited to take part in screening every two years until you reach the age of 75.

Each of the screening programmes in the UK use home tests, which look for hidden blood in poo. If you are registered with a GP and within the eligible screening age range, a test will be automatically posted to you, so you can complete it in the privacy of your own home.

Breast Cancer Screening

Women over 50 are invited for breast screening every three years to help spot breast cancers sooner. Breast screening can prevent women dying from breast cancer. Belmont Medical Centre encourages all women to attend. Getting an invitation to breast screening can raise many questions for women.
