qFIT Bowel Screen
Helping to detect the early signs of bowel cancer and other bowel diseases
The service offered by Dr Peck and Dr Josson McConnell offers a focused health review of your digestive system and bowels. The new Quantitative Faecal Immunochemical Test (qFIT) is a test to detect hidden or ‘occult’ blood in stool samples. Regular bowel screening can help detect the early signs of bowel cancer, diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease. Early identification of bowel cancers lead to a greater success rate on curing disease. This screening is through blood tests and stool samples (the latter in the comfort of your own home).
Your qFIT Bowel Screen includes:
30 minute appointment to assess for symptoms, family history, examination
Tumour marker blood test Ca19-9 and health check bloods
Results to be sent via letter/email or follow up call
