Everyone living in England and between the ages of 60 and 69 is being invited to participate in a programme to screen for bowel cancer .
You are sent a kit and are required to provide samples from your bowel motion - all in the privacy of your own home ..
Not 100% accurate it will still help in the early detection of bowel cancer for some people.
Let's hope that this exercise is a great success and it helps to reduce the impact that bowel cancer can bring..
A good idea from the NHS !!!
