The age when you receive the FIT kit is lowering to 50 over the next 4 years 

Now that the Bowel scope test has been decommissioned the age when you are eligible to receive the FIT kit is being lowered to the age of 50 over the next 4 years. Everybody who was invited but not screened due to the COVID pandemic and 56 year olds will start receiving the FIT kits as of April 2021.

The age will be lowered year on year until 50 year olds will start getting their invitations by 2024. Once completed, everybody between the ages of 50 - 74 will be sent a FIT kit every two years.
