Best practice guidance for GPs
This factsheet provides best practice guidance for GPs on monitoring and referring people under the age of 50 with bowel problems for further investigation. It aims to give GPs confidence and support in recognising symptoms that could be bowel cancer in younger people. It has been created in line with NG12 guidance.
Symptoms Diary: a brief for GPs
The symptoms diary aims to help patients with possible signs of bowel cancer to keep track of their symptoms before they visit their GP. This diary recording will give you a good indication about whether they need further tests for the disease.
Our briefing sheet for GPs explains how it should be used.
