Screening to reduce or prevent bowel cancer requires expert endoscopists who look into the bowel and find cancers or signs that a patch of bowel (a polyp or adenoma) might develop into cancer.
Billie Moores is the Regional Head of the Screening Quality Assurance Service for the North and the national QA lead for the bowel cancer screening programme. Keen to support endoscopists to improve, she has worked closely with clinicians and screening colleagues.
