Free cancer test kit
PEOPLE over 50 have been encouraged to take part in the free National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Eligible participants in the 50-74 year age group are sent a test kit via post, which can be completed at home and returned via post to a laboratory for analysis. Those returning a positive result are then advised to consult with their GP for further assessment. For information, visit the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program website or call 1800 118 868.
