NHS Bowel Cancer Screening

Posted on March 13th, 2023

NHS bowel cancer screening checks if you could have bowel cancer. It’s available to everyone aged 60 to 74 years

The programme is expanding to make it available to everyone aged 50 to 59 years. This is happening gradually over 4 years and started in April 2021.

You use a home test kit, called a faecal immunochemical test (FIT), to collect a small sample of poo and send it to a lab. This is checked for tiny amounts of blood.
