Bowel cancer prevention and awareness project

A social movement to build on the successful Be Cancer SAFE North Derbyshire campaign. Now raising awareness of bowel cancer signs and symptoms and the importance of screening in areas where uptake is traditionally low. The focus is in Bolsover, Chesterfield and Erewash. Within these areas, the lowest uptake for bowel screening is amongst men with poorer levels of health and wellbeing. Uptake is lower amongst older adults of working age (60-65 years) in lower income occupations.
