Health conditions and screening uptake
What is it about?
Are people with health conditions (such as diabetes or depression) in England more or less likely to accept an invitation to be screened for colorectal cancer?
Why is it important?
Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Screening for it can help to reduce this mortality, but not everybody who is invited attends screening. We currently have little knowledge about if people with certain health conditions (such as diabetes or depression) are more or less likely to accept a screening invitation, compared to people without these conditions.
