The guidance has been produced by the national charity Beating Bowel Cancer and supported by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB). The guidance for pharmacists, which will be distributed in the 19 May edition of the Pharmaceutical Journal, is part of a broader campaign, spearheaded by Beating Bowel Cancer.

The new campaign is being piloted in 11 primary care trusts across England. Part of the initiative is to provide pharmacy staff and their customers with important information on symptoms to look out for, and encouraging customers to seek further support if they are concerned.

The guidance will be available online at the RPSGB website and the Beating Bowel Cancer website.
