Most people who get bowel cancer are aged over 60.St Mark’s Hospital delivers the National NHS Bowel  Cancer Screening Programme. In Brent. Currently everyone aged 60 -74 is invited for screening and will be sent a home testing kit every 2 years. This will gradually lower over the next few years so everyone aged 50 -74 will be invited.
