Each Friday at Ailsa Craig we have a staff 'dress down' day where we ditch our uniforms and donate money to charity. The charity of the month for June was Francis House. Francis House provides care for children and young adults with life threatening conditions. They also provide support and friendship for the whole family. If you wish to speak to anyone from Francis House there contact number is: 0161 434 4118 or you can follow them on Facebook & Twitter.
Bowel cancer screening can save lives. If bowel cancer is found early, it is easier to treat. Screening may also pick up non-cancerous growths (polyps), which could become cancerous in the future.
Bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially if it’s diagnosed early. Nearly everyone diagnosed at the earliest stage will survive bowel cancer. Taking part in bowel cancer screening is the best way to get diagnosed early.
Bowel cancer screening programmes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland invite people over the age of 60 to take part in screening. In Scotland, screening starts from age 50. We do not provide bowel cancer screening test kits or accept completed kits.
If you have a high risk of getting bowel cancer, you may have tests at a younger age.
Speak to your GP if you have any symptoms of a bowel problem or if you are worried about bowel cancer.
