NATIONAL CANCER SCREENING SERVICE WELCOMES CONFIRMATION OF INTRODUCTION OF COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING PROGRAMME

The National Cancer Screening Service (NCSS) today welcomes confirmation from the Minister for Health and Children, Ms Mary Harney TD, that a national, population-based colorectal cancer screening programme is to be introduced for men and women in Ireland.

The NCSS has been working closely with the Minister and her officials at the Department of Health and Children in recent weeks, to examine ways in which the NCSS can deliver a quality assured, timely and cost effective national programme.

As the Minister has confirmed, there will be a full and detailed briefing on the organisation and implementation of a national colorectal cancer screening programme provided in the coming days.
