Alternative access to kits model

Participating healthcare providers can now give bowel screening kits directly to their eligible patients through the alternative access to kits model. This is in addition to the existing mail out model.

This alternative way of giving kits to eligible patients will help remove barriers that prevent some people from participating in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.

The Healthcare Provider Portal enables healthcare providers to bulk order iFOBT bowel screening test kits for their practice and record when they have issued a kit to a patient. Through the Portal, healthcare providers also receive reminders to encourage their patients to return test kits, as well as notifications of test results and follow up actions where applicable.

If your health centre would like to find out more, please contact the Program.
