    A bowel screening programme is being rolled out in Canterbury today

    A bowel screening programme is being rolled out in Canterbury today


    Free bowel screening kits will be sent to the homes of Canterbury people aged 60 to 74 from mid-November.

    About 90-thousand people will take part during the first two years.

    Canterbury DHB acting CEO Dr Andrew Brant says the tests should lead to one thousand pre-cancerous growths found and removed in the first year.

    South Canterbury was added to the nationwide programme earlier this week.

    The programme's been rolled out around the country over the past three years.
