[Correspondence] Regional variations in UK colorectal cancer screening and mortality

We write to report our inadvertent and unique finding of a disproportionately higher mortality, unrelated to quality of care, for colorectal cancers detected through the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (NBCSP) in one region of the East Midlands in the UK, compared with the other adjacent regions studied. This was identified as part of a UK-based, regional, multicentre study looking into national faecal occult blood testing and colorectal cancer in patients in the incident rounds of screening.
