THE CCC INFOLINE: 08708 50 60 50

The CCC Infoline is a confidential telephone information service giving advice on all aspects of bowel cancer – available not only to members of the public and patients but to nurses and health professionals too.

Run by colorectoral, oncology and stoma care specialist nurses, the Infoline offers advice on all issues including prevention, symptoms, diagnostic tests and treatment options.


CCC is currently running the most comprehensive Awareness Campaign in the history of the charity and the disease – a groundbreaking year-long National Lottery funded initiative which aims to reach 17 million people in the UK.

The campaign focuses on public awareness targeting: GP waiting rooms, pubs, city and county councils and people at their place of work.

The charity’s hardhitting Sh*t Scared? Pub Campaign is being launched on 13 September 2004. It targets men and women of all ages and aims to reach drinkers at 30,000 public houses across the UK - using posters, beer mats and media activity to raise awareness of the disease.
