22.4.20 NHS Bowel Cancer Screening COVID-19 Frequently asked questions
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and Government guidance regarding social distancing, NHS England & Improvement (NHSEI) has, together with Public Health England (PHE), rapidly reviewed the delivery of bowel scope screening and bowel cancer screening services.
On the basis of expert clinical advice, the NHS is rescheduling screening appointments. This is to reduce the risk of coronavirus to patients, colleagues and other front-line NHS staff. NHSEI will continue to monitor the situation and reschedule appointments as soon as possible.
