The NHS bowel cancer screening kit detects signs of cancer before you notice anything wrong.

If you’re aged 56 to 74 and registered with a GP in England, you’ll be sent a kit in the post automatically,
every two years.

If you’re sent the kit, help yourself by remembering to complete it. Put it by the loo. Don’t put it off.
