BOWEL cancer screening has already saved 26 lives, the States has been told.

But more could be done to improve the service, which is only screening people reaching 60, not those also reaching 65 as first envisaged, Deputy Mike Hadley has said.

He posed a series of questions to the Health and Social Services minister Mark Dorey about the service in the States this morning.

Deputy Dorey would not confirm the detection rates as he said a full review was currently being undertaken.
