Bowel Cancer Screening

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program saves lives. If you’re aged 50-74 and eligible you’ll be sent a free bowel cancer screening kit. Around 80 Australians die of bowel cancer every week, but if detected early, up to 90% of cases can be successfully treated. The second phase of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program campaign launched on 20 March 2016. Information on the campaign, including posters and flyers, can be found at:
