About the service

Our Bowel Cancer Screening team provide the  NHS National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme for residents who are registered with a GP in Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon and north Ealing.

If you’re registered with a GP, you’ll get an automatic invitation from the NHS National Bowel Screening Programme just after your 55th birthday.

If you’re between the ages of 55 and 59, you can also refer yourself by calling the National Bowel Screening Helpline for an appointment on 0800 707 6060.

If you’re between the ages of 60 and 75, you’ll be sent a home testing kit to complete at home every two years. If the home testing kit does not arrive, or if you would like a replacement kit, just call the National Bowel Screening Helpline on 0800 707 6060 and they will send a new kit to you.

Research

Our Bowel Cancer Screening Service works with UCL Behavioural Science  Department on research. This included a recent randomised controlled trial, where we explored whether using two self-referral reminders and a theory-based leaflet would increase the uptake of flexible sigmoidoscopy in the English Bowel Scope Screening Programme.
