Bowel cancer screening age dropped to 55

Bowel cancer screening will be made available to more people in Wales as home testing is expanded to include 55–57-year-olds.


People aged 55, 56 and 57 will start to be invited for screening from Wednesday 5th October and will receive their home testing kits in the post.


The programme will be rolled out to the newly eligible age group gradually over the next 12 months.


You can find out more about the screening programme here - https://phw.nhs.wales/services-and-teams/screening/bowel-screening/
