    P76 - Bowel cancer screening kits to be sent out at regular intervals to adults97% of patients diagnosed with stage I bowel cancer survive for five years after diagnosis, this falls to 7% for patients with stage IV bowel cancer. Average bowel cancer survival rates for all diagnosed cases are behind the European average, with Britain falling behind former Communist countries not known for quality healthcare. This could be for three reasons; the poor diet of Britons increasing the prevalence of bowel cancer, NHS cancer care not being up to the standards it should, and inadequate screening diagnosing bowel cancer in the later stages when survival is less likely.

    In Australia, adults are sent a bowel cancer stool screening kit on their 50th birthday to detect the early stages of bowel cancer. To increase bowel cancer survival rates, this petition calls on the government to change its bowel cancer screening scheme to start sending mandatory screening kits to adults on an annual basis, starting at their 50th birthday to increases the rate of diagnosis of bowel cancer in its early stages, increasing the rate of survival from bowel cancer.
