Taking part in screening is something you can do to look after your health.
Bowel screening is a test you can complete at home. It looks for hidden blood in your poo. Blood in your poo can be a sign of bowel cancer or other changes such as polyps (small growths).
If you are invited back for further tests, talk to your screening nurse about how your appointment will take place at the hospital. They will explain what they are doing to keep you safe during your appointment.
Remember, to stop the spread of infection, do not attend for screening if you are unwell.
