Why attend?

Bowel cancer is the UK’s fourth most common cancer and 98% of people diagnosed early survive. Despite that, only 20% of people in some parts of Greater Manchester take up their offer of bowel cancer screening. That’s why it’s one of the six mandatory public health campaigns for all Greater Manchester pharmacies in 2018.

These events will help your pharmacy deliver the campaign successfully. Participants will learn more about the screening programme and how to promote it to patients and customers; you’ll also receive a free resource pack to help you promote it in your pharmacy.
