Notes from event at Lynwood on 23 Nov on Bowel Cancer

The PPG’s for Kings Corner and Magnolia House organised an informative meeting on awareness on this topic.

A well presented talk was given by a speaker from the charity Bowel Cancer UK. He explained clearly and from a patient aspect about bowel cancer, the risks, and the importance of screening. The questions and discussion that followed was enriched by comments from some of the people attending who had experience of the condition.

Leaflets were available, and you can also see them and more on the website at https://www.bowelcanceruk.org.uk/ – or on the NHS Choices website in the A-Z section.

There is also more information in the resources section on this website (previously posted by Dr Kittel).

This was a good event and was well attended. Thanks to Morag Langhorne for organising. This is one of a series of events – see more in the PPG events diary section.
