The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme helpline is 0800 707 6060

How do I get my screening kit?

If you are aged 60-69 years, you will be sent your screening invitation automatically through the post. All you need to do is make sure that your GP has your correct address. Screening is now being offered to people aged 70-74 years but it will take until the end of 2014 before all invitations are sent out. People aged 70 years and over who want to be screened before then should request a kit. Simply telephone the free helpline on 0800 707 60 60.
