Darren calls for investment in bowel cancer diagnosis

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones has signed a cross-party letter, along with 44 other MPs, calling on the government to commit to dramatically improve the speed of diagnosis of bowel cancer.

The letter backs Bowel Cancer UK’s campaign to ensure bowel cancer is diagnosed quickly so patients have access to treatment and the highest possible chance of beating the disease.

Darren said:

Ahead of the Government’s spending review and publication of the NHS 10 Year Plan in November, I’ve signed a cross-party letter supporting Bowel Cancer UK‘s campaign to end the crisis in diagnosis.

Early diagnosis can make bowel cancer more treatable and potentially, curable. Too many people are waiting far too long to get screened and tested – with investment and commitment to a funded action plan the government have the power to change this. With 9 of 10 people diagnosed at the earliest stage surviving bowel cancer, I call on them to act now, ahead of the Autumn Budget, to bring an end to this potentially life-threatening crisis!”
