All men and women aged 50–74 are invited for bowel screening. Bowel screening involves taking a simple test at home every two years.

We strongly encourage you to take this simple test. In Scotland the screening programme will prevent at least 150 deaths from bowel cancer each year

Why not bypass the queue and check yourself in for your appointment when you come to the surgery?  The check in screen is situated in the waiting room and is easy to use.



 PLEASE be thoughtful and let us know if you cannot attend as this will allow us to offer the appointment to another patient.

735 PATIENTS FAILED TO ATTEND DURING 2013  - Just think what the benefit would have been if these appointments had been cancelled and we could have offered them to another patient!!!
