What we do

Bowel Cancer Screener Accreditation (BCSA) is part of the JAG programme and facilitates the assessment of endoscopists who apply to work in the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (BCSP) in England. The BCSA team also support screening accreditation for Bowel Screening Wales.

To ensure endoscopists working within the programme are of a consistently high standard, all endoscopists must be accredited. On behalf of the NHS, JAG provide the quality assurance and administration of accreditation for the English Bowel Cancer Screening Programme and Bowel Screening Wales. Full details of the accreditation process and standards for England can be found in the guidelines in the Downloads tab.
