Julian backs calls to improve bowel cancer screening

May 2, 2018

Julian has added his voice to cross-party calls for improvements to the bowel cancer screening regime, speaking in a parliamentary debate on the subject in Westminster Hall on Tuesday.

Julian said:

A member of my close family—my father-in-law—is suffering from bowel cancer. Thanks to the superb support of the NHS he is on the road to recovery. That has brought home to me the importance of early diagnosis. I just want to put on the record the fact that I would support the hon. Gentleman on a cross-party basis to ensure that we bring down the screening age and improve testing wherever we can.

After the debate, Julian commented:

Ensuring we have first-class screening methods for this cancer is essential to give peace of mind to families in York and up and down the country.

From the government’s response during this debate I know that Ministers at the Department of Health are attentive and sympathetic on this issue, and I would urge them to look carefully at proposals to lower the screening age. I will continue to keep an eye on developments in this area on behalf of my constituents.”
