Bowel screening offered for 60th birthdays
Sunday 20th January 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
A FREE screening programme for bowel cancer has been launched which will be offered to all the 1,080 Islanders who have their 60th birthday this year.
It is believed that this simple one-off, ten minute procedure will prevent around five or six people in the Island a year going on to have bowel cancer.
Invitations for screening will go out during the year, starting next week, and the first session will be held on Tuesday 19 February.
