Breast, bowel and lung cancers are the most common cancers in Scotland accounting for 45% of all cancers in 2011. Screening, where applicable, is the key to detecting cancer early. The early detection of cancer can have a great impact on the treatment and survival outcomes of patients.
The Red Practice Medical Team supports the Scottish Government's Detect Cancer Early Programme. If you have turned 50 and receive an invitation to be screened for bowel cancer please take part. Please ask a member of staff for any information you require or see the link below for further information.
