NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Campaign


Shropshire Cancer Screening

'Get Yourself Checked' is the message from GPs, Clinical Pharmacists and healthcare professionals across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. Patients and members of the public are being encouraged to schedule regular screening check-ups with their GP practice to help catch the early signs of cancer. 

'Get Yourself Checked' is about cervical screening (a smear test), tying into the national campaign, but will also focus on bowel and breast screening checks too. 

Health checks are available, free of charge to help detect cervical cancer, bowel cancer and breast cancer and we encourage everyone to take them up. If you've missed an appointment or have not taken up a screening invite, please contact the surgery today on 01952 620138 and our Reception team will assist you in booking your appointment.

The following leaflets contain useful information to guide you in making your decision to attend your screening appointment:
