P-05-936 Offer Bowel Cancer Screening After the Age of 74
This petition was submitted by Andrew Lye having collected a total of 69 signatures.
Text of Petition
The NHS in England, Scotland and Wales all offer Bowel Cancer screening every 2 years between the ages of 60 and 74.
In England and Scotland, you can request a screening kit every 2 years after 74. This is NOT available to those over 74 in Wales.
This petition asks the Welsh Government to make bowel cancer screening available as it is in England and Scotland.
Ending the screening at 74 in Wales suggests that we do not value our seniors in the same way as they do in England and Scotland.
