Bowel Screening Fit Programme

In 2019, Faecal Immunochemical testing (FIT) will replace the Faecal Occult blood testing in the NHS Bowel screening cancer in England.

The programme is for anyone 60-74 year olds in England.

Bowel cancer screening rates are currently at 59% and even lower in deprived areas.

FIT is better as it requires only 1 faecal sample making the test much easier.
