Bowel cancer screening programme

Screening is the process of identifying people who appear healthy but may be at increased risk of a disease or condition.

The bowel cancer screening programme (BCSP) is an NHS population screening programme. Bowel cancer screening involves having tests to check if you have or are at risk of bowel cancer.

The Berkshire Bowel Cancer Screening Centre is part of the National Screening programme.

The service operates as a joint venture between Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust and covers the areas of East and West Berkshire, part of South Oxfordshire and part of South Buckinghamshire.

Within the centre we co-ordinate and aim to provide the highest level of holistic care to individuals identified through the screening programme.
