We’re working with bowel cancer patients from communities in North Yorkshire to understand their experiences of bowel cancer symptoms and their responses to them. This will help work with other local organisations to identify why some people avoid going to their doctor with bowel cancer symptoms, and the potential solutions to this.
We’re testing a new health check project aimed at improving the early diagnosis of cancer in disadvantaged communities across Yorkshire. The trial is in the form of a new online health questionnaire which is carried out by trained advisors. The results are then used to determine whether those who complete the questionnaire should see their doctor as a precaution.
