National Bowel Screening Programme - Waitemata DHB
Waitemata DHB residents aged 60 to 74* years can take part in the free National Bowel Screening Programme, to help find cancer early when it can often be successfully treated.
Every two years you will be sent an invitation letter, a consent form and a free bowel screening test kit. The test is done at home, and is clean and simple to do.
More information on the National Bowel Screening Programme is available at www.bowelscreening.health.govt.nz or by phoning 0800 924 432.
*Waitemata DHB residents under the age of 60 who were invited to do a test through the bowel screening pilot (2012-2017) will continue to be invited for screening every two years, if they still live in the Waitemata DHB area
