Share your ideas on speeding up diagnosis for colorectal (bowel) cancer

If you've had an experience of colorectal (bowel) cancer, you could help us speed up diagnosis for others. Come along to our focus group to share your views on possible ways to diagnose.

Opportunity deadline: Friday 13th January

Opportunity date: Wednesday 1st February

Location: Angel

We are committed to finding new ways to diagnose cancer earlier to make sure more people survive cancer, with less side effects of treatment. Recent research has looked at ways it might be possible to speed up this process for colorectal cancer patients. To decide how this researh should influence how the government organises the NHS, our policy team want to hear from people who have been through colorectal cancer (either as a patient themselves or as a close friend/family member/partner).


How you can help

We're organising a focus group in London on Wednesday 1st February and telephone interviews in the New Year to discuss the research, how you think any changes might work in practice and if this will give enough support to people having tests to diagnose colorectal cancer. Views shared with us will directly influence the report that our policy team will write as well as how they will influence the government on this issue.


To register your interest please contact the team at and we will send you more details. To ensure we hear from a range of people with different experiences, we'd like to know a bit about you and your colorectal cancer experience, and your availability for a focus group or interview. We will confirm with anyone interested as soon as possible and by 13th January at the latest.
