Abnormal test kit

Should you receive an abnormal result after completing the screening test for bowel cancer, you will be invited to discuss having a colonoscopy.

If you are unable to make this appointment please contact our Southern Hub on 0800 7076060 to reschedule.

Before you have the procedure, a specialist nurse will fully explain what a colonoscopy is and what is involved. You will be given the opportunity to ask any questions, and your fitness for the procedure will be assessed.

Should you wish to continue to have a colonoscopy you will be given an appointment date and time by the specialist nurse.
