This little test could save your life

The National Bowel Screening Programme is free for men and women aged 60 to 74 years who are eligible for publicly-funded healthcare. It aims to save lives by finding bowel cancer at an early stage when it can often be successfully treated.

The National Bowel Screening Programme is free for men and women aged 60 to 74 years who are eligible for publicly-funded healthcare. It aims to save lives by finding bowel cancer at an early stage when it can often be successfully treated.

The test is quick, clean and simple to do. You do it by yourself at home.

If you’re eligible to take part, you will be sent:
• an invitation letter
• a consent form
• a free bowel screening test kit, with instructions on how to use it.

This will happen not long after your 60th birthday.

Done it once? Do it again.
Screening is offered every two years, so if you have done a test before and returned a negative result, you will be offered a second test two years after you did the first one if you are still eligible. Your second test is just as important as the first one.

Haven’t quite gotten there yet?
If you received a test kit in the post in the past two years but didn’t complete it, you will be given another chance to take the test. You will be sent a test kit two years after you were sent the first one if you are still eligible.

Worried about your bowel health?
The programme is for people who do not have any symptoms of bowel cancer. It is a preventative programme that finds bowel cancer at an early stage before you may notice any symptoms.

If you are experiencing symptoms, such as a change in your normal bowel movements that continues for several weeks or blood in your bowel motion (poo), it is important to seek advice from a doctor who may refer you for a specialist assessment.

If you are aged 60-74 and experiencing symptoms, don’t wait to receive your test kit in the post – see a doctor as soon as you can. The same applies if you are younger than 60, or older than 74.

Please do not hesitate to raise any questions or concerns about this life-saving test with your family doctor, or with a health professional available on the free helpline: 0800 924 432

Have you noticed algae in any local rivers?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Did you know algae can be lethal for dogs?
Toxic algae can form brown, dark green or black mats that grow on rocks in the river bed. Mats can come loose from the riverbed and wash up on the banks or form floating “rafts” in shallow areas.
When exposed, the mats may dry out and turn light brown.… View more
Did you know algae can be lethal for dogs?
Toxic algae can form brown, dark green or black mats that grow on rocks in the river bed. Mats can come loose from the riverbed and wash up on the banks or form floating “rafts” in shallow areas.
When exposed, the mats may dry out and turn light brown. The mats produce a strong musty odour.
Dogs are attracted to the smell, and may eat any accessible mats that wash up on the river’s edge.
A small amount, the size of a 50 cent piece, can kill a dog.
