Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, with 42,000 people diagnosed every year. But far too many people are being diagnosed at the latest stages of the disease when chances of survival are poorer. This isn’t good enough.
Bowel cancer shouldn't be the UK’s second biggest cancer killer as it is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. We must stop lives being needlessly lost to the disease.
With the General Election on 12 December, we have a real chance to press for action.
Will you share our manifesto with your local candidates?
Our manifesto is calling on all political parties to help save lives from bowel cancer by committing to;
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
Parliamentary candidates running for election need your vote and want to support issues that matter to you. That gives you power. Urgent action is needed to address the biggest challenges facing people with bowel cancer and this election is your chance to show candidates this matters.
