Beating bowel cancer together

How we produce information

We’re the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity. We’re determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer. 

One of the ways we do this is by producing high quality bowel cancer information for everyone affected by bowel cancer. This includes people at risk of developing bowel cancer, people who have been diagnosed and their friends and family. 

How we produce information 

We make sure our information is accurate and up to date by using the latest evidence from research and clinical guidelines. However, our information does not replace the advice of your healthcare team. 

All our health information is updated every two to three years. We try to make our information as clear as possible by writing in plain language and explaining medical words. 

We work with healthcare professionals and researchers to check our information is scientifically accurate and up to date. 

We also work with volunteer reviewers, including people living with bowel cancer, their family and friends. By involving people who have been affected by bowel cancer, we can make sure that our health information is clear, easy to understand and fit for purpose. 

If you’d like to help us review and further develop our health information, or if you'd like to see a list of the references we’ve used to produce our information, contact us by emailing feedback@bowelcanceruk.org.uk.

The Patient Information Forum 

We’re members of the Patient Information Forum (PIF). PIF is an independent membership body for organisations working in health information and support. They run the PIF TICK programme, which is the only independently assessed quality mark for print and digital health information. It helps people identify trusted, evidence-based information. You’ll see the PIF TICK Trusted Information Creator logo across our health information. This means that we’ve produced the information that meets the following quality standards:

  • The information is produced by following a consistent and documented process 
  • Everyone involved in producing information receives ongoing training and support 
  • The information meets a need for people affected by bowel cancer 
  • The information is based on reliable, up-to-date evidence and communicated in a way that’s easy to understand 
  • The information has been tested by people affected by bowel cancer and health care professionals. Their feedback is used to develop the information 
  • The information considers the health literacy and digital literacy needs of readers 
  • The information is written in plain language and displayed in an accessible way that’s easy to find 
  • All feedback received from readers is recorded, and we invite people to send feedback or comments on all information resources 
  • The information is promoted to ensure it reaches the people who need it 
  • The impact of the information is measured to see what difference it has made to people affected by bowel cancer 

For any questions about our health information please contact feedback@bowelcanceruk.org.uk.
