Bowel Cancer West (BCW) is a charity established to increase survival rates of bowel cancer in the South West of England. Our aim is to make survival rates of people with bowel cancer in the South West the highest in the UK and we set out to achieve this by:

  • Raising awareness of bowel cancer (notably the symptoms to look out for as well as prevention) 

  • Training to doctors and nurses on bowel cancer (symptoms and support for patients)

  • Funding locally driven research projects into the disease (and patient support), where there is a gap in nationally lead research.

Unfortunately, one in three people in the West Country know someone with bowel cancer and Devon is at particular risk with 91% of people (recently polled) admitting their awareness is ‘average’ or ‘poor’. Bowel Cancer (if caught early) has a high survival rate so being aware of the symptoms at an early stage can save a great numbers of lives.
