If you are aged between 50 to 74 you will receive a bowel cancer screening kit every 2 years. It is very important that you complete and return this test. This simple test can detect bowel cancer at an early stage. If its detected early enough there's a 9 out of 10 chance of beating it. You should complete the test even if you've had no symptoms and feel fine. Please visit www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk/ for more information.
The FAMILY NURSE PARTNERSHIP is a new preventative programme offered to young mothers (19 years and under), and their families, having their first baby. It begins in early pregnancy and is orientated towards the future health and well being of the child. For more information click here .
