Cancer Screening

At Cloister Road Surgery we are trying very hard to pick up cancers as early as possible to avoid delays in treatment where possible. You can visit the fingertips website to find out more information about our practice data in this area.

Nationally we are being asked to refer patients urgently for assessment if we feel they have a 3% risk of cancer. We are proud to have stayed very close to this figure the last few years.

We are very keen for our patients to participate in the national bowel, breast and cervical cancer screening programmes. Our clinicians will be happy to discuss any reservations or concerns you might have about the screening programmes.
