BowelScreen Australia® is a Bowel Cancer Australia initiative launched in 2010 
to provide greater access to bowel cancer screening.

Medical guidelines recommend screening every 2 years from age 50 for Australians at average risk.
If you have one relative with bowel cancer diagnosed at age 55 or older,
screening should be considered every 2 years from age 45.

GP practices or community pharmacies interested in stocking BowelScreen Australia® tests, 
please call 1800 55 65 75 and select Option 3 when prompted. 

BowelScreen Australia® uses a clinically proven, sensitive and reliable faecal immunochemical test (FIT). 
The Australian designed and manufactured test and accredited pathology services are provided by Clinical Genomics. 

The test comes complete with full instructions, a dedicated customer helpline, as well as a reminder service.

No faecal handling, diet or medication changes are required to perform the test, which can be completed in the privacy of your own home.

 The recommended retail price of the BowelScreen Australia® test is $42 (inc. GST). 
The price includes the test kit, pathology analysis, result reporting to the participant and their nominated GP1 and return postage. 

The Australian Government is phasing in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program by 2020. 

Eligible Australians aged 50-74 will receive a taxpayer-funded bowel cancer screening test in the mail and are encouraged to complete and return it.

For information visit the National Bowel Cancer Screening webpage or contact 1800 118 868.
