There are many ways we can work together to help fulfill our strategy to increase awareness and early diagnosis of the disease.
Every year in April we hold a unique day for over 250 bowel cancer patients and their families to come together with health professionals for a day of learning, support and inspiration. This is an event for patients and carers to help them meet the challenges they face every day.
There are 136,000 known interactions per annum with our patient materials, with a potential for the information be shared with friends and family.
Beating Bowel Cancer publishes a range of booklets and factsheets to support patients and their families throughout the colorectal cancer pathway from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
As the secretariat for the National Colorectal Cancer Nurses Network, Beating Bowel Cancer organises a conference each year for colorectal nurses in England. The event encourages sharing of best practice and nurses can hear the latest developments in bowel cancer.
This year we are also holding our first study day for Scottish Colorectal Nurses.
Each year Beating Bowel Cancer holds a reception in Parliament where Members of Parliament join bowel cancer patients, members of the charity and stakeholders to help raise awareness of the disease.
