"Can we be taken off the bowel screening register?"

About: NHS Borders

(as the patient),

Hoping that by coming through you that a message can be forwarded to Jedburgh Health Centre. My wife and myself have received bowel screening advices at Victoria Cottage, Ancrum, a copy of the letter forwarded to us.

We now live in Australia and require our names to be taken from the records. Bowel screening has advised that it has to be done through our doctor.

Would very much appreciate your help in forwarding this advice please.

Response from Stephen Bermingham, NHS Borders

Dear Jedburgh, to remove your details from the bowel screening register you need to contact Jedburgh Health Centre directly. We have been in touch with them and the best person to contact is their Practice Manager, Marie Mercer, who will be able to remove your details from their register. Her phone number is 01835 863361 or you can email the Health Centre receptionJ@borders.scot.nhs.uk if you have any problems please let us know. You should also find out about the bowel screening arrangements in Australia, as the sooner its caught, the easier it is to treat.

Regards, Stephen Bermingham – NHS Borders
