SSP team website

This month, Bowel Cancer UK is raising awareness of bowel cancer screening to improve early diagnosis of the disease. Basildon University Hospital is the accredited centre in south Essex for the national screening programme and the hospital’s specialist screening practitioners (SSP) are taking the message to the community that taking the test for bowel cancer can save lives.

Simon Hicks Website
