Bowel Cancer Screening

What we do

King's Bowel Cancer Screening Centre is part of the national cancer screening programme. We see people from Lambeth and Southwark for routine bowel cancer screening, to find cancer earlier - sometimes before symptoms appear - when it is easier to treat. We can also detect and remove pre-cancerous cells. Go to www.nhs.uk for more information on screening.

If you have symptoms that might be a sign of cancer, contact your GP.

Bowel Cancer Screening

If you are registered with a Lambeth or Southwark GP and aged 60-74, you will be posted a screening kit every two years. If you are 75 or over, you can request a screening kit by phoning 0800 707 6060. If your test shows an abnormality, we will invite you to an appointment at King's with a Specialist Screening Practitioner. They will give you advice and refer you for a colonoscopy, if suitable.

Locations:

  • Specialist Screening Practitioner appointments: Suite 3, Venetian building, King's College Hospital campus, Caldecot Road.
  • Colonoscopy appointments: Lower Ground Floor, Cheyne Wing, King's College Hospital
