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.
