Bowel Screening Pilot

Please note: Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB) has been selected to run the Ministry for Health's four year bowel screening pilot. 

People aged 50 to 74 years who live in the DHB area will be eligible to take part in the screening programme.

Eligible people will receive a faecal occult blood test (FOBT) in the mail and are encouraged to participate in the Programme Pilot.

People who are ineligible to participate in the bowel screening pilot can undergo annual screening through BowelScreen Aotearoa™ by visiting their local participating pharmacy.
