Full description:

We are looking for members of the public to attend workshops to help with the development of new materials designed to give information to participants of the Scottish Bowel Screening Programme about their risk of having bowel cancer. It is hoped that this information will help people make their own decision around whether or not to have a colonoscopy (camera test to look for bowel cancer). We estimate that this would involve up to 6 meetings lasting around 3 hours each, over a 9 month period.
