This project developed a pathway that identified, flagged and offered support to people with learning disabilities prior to point of invitation to bowel cancer screening using the faecal occult blood test (FOBt). This enabled individually tailored work to support people with learning disabilities in making a choice about participation and being supported through the screening process.
The project has been really successful and they are now looking to roll out into other CCG areas as well as share our learning so other areas can look at the work and possibly copy/adapt.
The full report is available to download below and for further information on the project, it's set up and outcomes please contact Julie Tucker.
