Public Health England (PHE) has not funded any bowel cancer screening awareness campaigns.

PHE’s Be Clear on Cancer campaigns aim to raise the public’s awareness of signs and symptoms of cancer, and are an important step in helping to diagnose cancers earlier. In 2017, PHE collaborated with Cancer Research UK (CRUK) to deliver a jointly-branded, Be Clear on Cancer/CRUK pilot screening campaign in the North West of England to promote the uptake of bowel screening. The campaign was funded by CRUK.
