About the Test


All men and women aged between 60-74 and who are registered with a GP are invited to participate in the Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. 

A test kit is sent in the post every two years and provides a simple, hygienic and discreet way for you to collect a small sample of your bowel motion (poo) in the privacy of your own home.


National Bowel Screening Hub Helpline: 0800 707 6060 to order a home-test kit, book an appointment, and general inquiries about bowel screening. Open 9am to 5pm.

St. Mark's Bowel Screening Health Promotion: 020 8869 3376 to speak to the Health Promotion team to arrange a talk, training session or raise awareness
