Bowel scan kits

With regret we advise that bowel scan kits will not be available this year during May from the Tatura Pharmacy. The good news is they will be available from the Rotary website, www.rotarybowelscan.com — with more and more people using the web these days this will not present a problem. Over 1000 kits have already been ordered in Victoria through the site. Early detection is vital for a successful outcome from this disease and we encourage people to avail themselves of this service. The price of kits is $22 including postage. Tatura Rotary Club would like to thank the Tatura and Murchison pharmacies for supporting Rotary in this initiative for many years.
