Returning your bowel cancer screening kit could save your life

People aged 60 to 74 are being targeted by a new bowel cancer screening awareness campaign to encourage them to return their completed kit.

The bowel cancer screening kit is a simple and private test that can be done at home and is one of the best ways to find bowel cancer early, when it’s easier to treat successfully.

Men and women aged 60 to 74 receive a free NHS bowel cancer screening kit routinely in the post, every two years.

The campaign’s main message ‘this little kit could save your life’ will appear on TV and press adverts until 2 April. For more information about screening visit
