Bowel Cancer

A map that shows the population estimates of  colorectal cancer incidence by age standardised rate (all ages) in Bolton by ward.

This evidence briefing examines the economic costs of physical inactivity (sedentary behaviour) in relation to:

  • Cardiovascular Disease - CHD & Stroke
  • Cancer - Bowel & Breast Cancer
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Falls

Whilst this report is brief, it provides a snapshot of costs and is a good starting point for any commissioning activity related to above topics

The North West Bowel Cancer Screening Quality Assurance Annual Report for 2012-13 summarises the first full round of QA visits to screening centres in the region. Eight key lessons from these visits are shared to aid the constant development and improvement of the bowel cancer screening programme in the North West. The report also provides performance data for the individual screening centres and for the region as a whole. The activities of the QA team in helping to enhance and develop the regional programme are also summarised. You can view and download the document by clicking here: http://bit.ly/XZgOnz
