Beating bowel cancer together

This is bowel cancer. Make your voice heard.

Every 15 minutes in the UK somebody is diagnosed with bowel cancer.  It doesn’t just impact the person diagnosed, it also affects families, friends and colleagues, doctors and nurses, scientists and researchers - that’s millions of people right across the UK. 


Margaret lost her daughter Annabel to the disease and sadly she isn’t alone. Over 16,500 people die of bowel cancer each year, but it doesn’t have to be this way. This cancer is treatable and curable, especially when diagnosed early. The UK Government has promised that in the next 10 years three out of four cancers will be diagnosed at an early, more treatable stage.

But right now NHS services are facing unprecedented pressure and the UK’s cancer survival rates are lagging behind comparable countries meaning people affected by bowel cancer are not receiving the best treatment and care. We need your help to change this. 

Urgent action is needed to address the biggest challenges facing people affected by bowel cancer. The Government has an opportunity to help stop people dying of the disease and we need your help more than ever to make politicians listen. 

We're calling on the Government to help ensure that everyone affected by bowel cancer receives an early diagnosis and the best treatment and care by committing to the following:

  • Investing in early diagnosis by delivering improvements to bowel cancer screening
  • Tackling staff shortages to address the capacity crisis in the NHS endoscopy and pathology services that diagnose bowel cancer
  • Securing better outcomes for younger bowel cancer patients and those at high risk of developing bowel cancer
  • Ensuring advanced bowel cancer patients are given access to the best treatment and care
