National Bowel Cancer Screening Register

A record of your test results from the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program aims to detect cancer early and reduce cancer related deaths.

The register

We look after the program register. We issue screening kits, reminder letters and keep a record of your results.

The register holds personal information, including:

  • your name, contact details, age and gender
  • your screening test results
  • details for your health professionals
  • details of any further tests you may have, such as colonoscopy and histopathology.

We respect the privacy of your personal information kept on the register. It's protected by the Privacy Act 1988. Read more about how we respect your right to privacy.

Bowel cancer testing

If you're eligible, we'll send you a test kit. The kit will show you how to do a faecal occult blood test. The test is simple and you can do it in the privacy of your home.
