Message from Mark Coleman, chairman, Bowel Cancer West

Bowel Cancer West is fully aware of the situation with Coronavirus in the UK at the moment.

We want to reassure friends and followers of BCW that the pathways for diagnosis and treatment of bowel cancer at our hospitals remain open.

Our NHS healthcare professionals are working hard to maintain this vital service while preparing for patients affected by COVID-19 who require hospitalisation and treatment.

Please make sure you follow the government's advice for social distancing, hand hygiene and self-isolation at

Look after your family, particularly elderly neighbours and relatives.

Please think of others and avoid excessive stockpiling of food.

Above all, stay safe and let’s get through this together!
