ABSTRACT
This article focuses on colorectal symptoms in the community. Current guidelines dictate that patients with high risk colorectal symptoms should be referred and seen in secondary care within 2 weeks. Screening is to be implemented and with increasing awareness there may be on added workload. The study assessed the prevalence of significant symptomatology in the general population and the relationship of these symptoms to the NHS guidelines for urgent referral. It was found that there is a high prevalence of symptoms in the general public.
