NHS (England) Update - Bowel Cancer Screening
In response to the coronavirus pandemic and to protect the public, bowel cancer screening services took the decision to reschedule appointments and invitations to a later date.
The NHS is urgently prioritising appointments for people that need follow up tests following their bowel cancer screening result, including telephone appointments with a specialist screening practitioner (SSP) where appropriate.
People who are overdue FIT kit invites will receive them as soon as possible.
People who have already received a FIT kit should now use and return it.
As always, anyone who thinks they have symptoms of bowel cancer should contact their GP practice as soon as possible.
The attachments lay out more detail on attending appointments and information about Bowel Cancer screening.
