This video explains how proton beam therapy works and the impact two state of the art purpose built NHS centres in the UK - one open and treating patients at The Christie Hospital in Manchester and another currently being built at UCLH in London - will have for patients.
The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.
These films are specifically aimed at those with learning disabilities and carers but can be used by everyone to help them understand the bowel scope screening process.
The thirty minute film has been delivered as part of a programme of work to improve health outcomes for people with learning disabilities. The film is broken into short chapters, using simple language and pictures that talk through the bowel scope screening process.
The chapters cover areas, such as what bowel scope screening is, the importance of being tested, and how to prepare for the appointment. It also talks about why someone may not be suitable for bowel scope screening and the symptoms that could indicate early signs of bowel cancer.
