NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme

Free NHS screening programme available to all over 60 years old.  If registered with a GP men and women aged 60 to 74 get sent a bowel cancer screening test kit to their home every two years. People 75 and over can call 0800 707 60 60 to request a kit.

If you are over 60 and would like to order a kit as you have misplaced yours phone 0800 707 60 60.  You can also request information in different languages and formats from this number.

The Greater Manchester Bowel Cancer Screening Health Improvement team can organise talks and health stands for groups, large and small, that want to know more about bowel cancer and the screening. 

If you have concerns about your bowel health you should make an appointment with your GP.
