Improving Access to Screening Services for People with a Learning Disability

Improving Access to Screening Services for People with a Learning Disability

Some people (such as those with Learning Disabilities) need additional support to access the national screening services such as those for bowel and breast cancer.

Screening is a way of finding and treating changes in your body before they turn into something serious like cancer. 

We want to make sure that you have the information you need to choose if you want to join in with the screening programs.

Your GP will send information about you to the screening programme, so they can offer to help you understand about screening. 

If you want to know more about this, please ask your GP or Practice Manager
