Bowel Cancer Screening
The new NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme
The NHS is working with Cancer Research UK to screen all GP registered patients aged between 60 and 74 for bowel cancer. They are doing this by inviting patients by post to send a stool sample using a prepaid envelope for analysis. Patients will receive a test kit in the post which is easy to use and includes detailed instructions of how to carry out the sample collection. Patients will be invited to complete the kit every 2 years. The sample is sent to a lab for analysis and you will be informed of your result by post. For more information click here or call 0800 707 6060.
Patients aged 75 or over can request a test kit by calling the number above.
