Bowel Screening

The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme is continuing to roll out the age extension of the eligible target population. This age extension is being implemented at different phases in different geographical areas. It has now been confirmed that patients registered with a GP Practice in Leeds are now eligible to be invited into the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme from the age of 50.  
This makes the target population 50 – 74 years in Leeds, with screening offered to patients every 2 years.
