About us

The Bowel Cancer Intelligence UK Patient-Public Group (BCI UK PPG) was established in 2016.

We provide direction to the UK Colorectal Cancer Intelligence Hub and the Yorkshire Cancer Research Bowel Cancer Improvement Programme to ensure they stay focussed on producing intelligence to advance bowel cancer care.
