Bowel cancer screening
The Bowel Cancer Screening Programme is an NHS population screening programme.
All men and women aged 60 to 74 who are registered with a GP in England are automatically sent a bowel cancer screening kit every two years.
If you’re 75 or over, you can ask for a kit every two years by phoning the free bowel cancer screening helpline on 0800 707 60 60.
NHS screening kits aren’t available for people under 60.
