It is important that patients are given the best experience possible and I will work with the local NHS in any way that I can to support them in providing the ‘gold standard’ of care for bowel cancer sufferers.”

Mark Flannagan, Chief Executive of Beating Bowel Cancer, said: “We strongly believe that patient experience should be an integral part of the NHS and it is vital that better care is secured for all bowel cancer patients.
