The need for a rapid cancer diagnosis

Due to a multitude of reasons, including the ongoing burden on healthcare services across the world, patients often sadly present to doctors too late. National cancer screening is limited to bowel, breast, and cervical in the UK. Our screening programs aim to rule out several types of cancer.

We have a robust ongoing referral pathway in place meaning that if an abnormality is detected at your visit, specialist input is available to guide you.
