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.
The age when you receive the FIT Kit is currently being lowered. Starting this year, 2021, the age you receive your invitation will gradually be belowered to the age of 50 over the next 4 years.
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.
