Description: 

People aged 73 to 74 can take part in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. They receive a home test kit in the mail every 2 years, along with this letter. The letter explains:

  • what the home test kit is
  • what you need to do
  • what happens after you do the test
  • how to find more information

When a person turns 74, the letter explains that they will not receive any more bowel screening kits in the future.
