The UCLH Cancer Collaborative has been highlighting good practice in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer (also known as bowel cancer).

We produced three video and written case-studies on:

1. Straight to test pathway for bowel cancer – a potential strategy for reducing the time to diagnosis and therefore first treatment. Video: PDF case study: http://bit.ly/2pEeQRr
