I'm in my seventies. Can I still have the test?

By 2014 the screening service will be available automatically to everyone aged between 70 and 74 years. If you are aged 70 years or over and want to be screened before then, you can request an FOBt kit. Simply telephone the free helpline on 0800 707 60 60.
