If you're 60 to 74, you'll automatically be invited to do a home testing kit every 2 years
This video explains how to complete the home testing kit:
- if you're 75 or over, you can ask for a home testing kit every 2 years by calling the free bowel cancer screening helpline on 0800 707 60 60
If you're too young for screening but are worried about a family history of bowel cancer make an appointment to speak to a GP for advice.
Always see a GP if you have symptoms of bowel cancer at any age – do not wait to have a screening test.
