In 2019 Faecal Immunochemical testing (FIT) will replace the Faecal Occult blood testing in the NHS Bowel screening cancer in England.

The programme is for anyone 60-74 year olds in England.

Bowel cancer screening rates are currently at 59% and even lower in deprived areas.

FIT is better as it requires only 1 faecal sample making the test much easier.
