Following the completion of the SPECC programme, we were delighted to work with members of the Faculty to compile a supporting supplement for publication – Colorectal Disease Special issue: SPECC: Significant Polyps and Early Colorectal Cancers. Guest Editors: Sun Myint A, Crane S, Moran BJ
The publication is 65 pages, made up of 16 supplement articles and the key messages from the Faculty. It is in Free Access format, allowing anyone to view and download the papers, ensuring that the key reference points from the national programme are available for everyone to read.
Below are links to resources that we hope you will find useful. These include the important open access GUT paper which details guidelines for the treatment of significant polyps.
The faculty and steering group have produced some patient information. You are welcome to use this but it requires editing for local use. It would be kind if you would credit the authors and SPECC when it is used.
