Patients aged between 60 and 74 are sent a bowel screening kit by the NHS National Bowel Screening Programme.
Our doctors and nurses believe it is important that patients receive relevant screening and strongly encourage all patients to take the test. Whilst screening does not diagnose bowel cancer, the results will tell you whether you need sn examination of your bowels called a colooscopy.
