Please note for BowelScreen Australia® screening kit orders we will send your details to Enterix Australia pathology service and they will send your faecal immunochemical test (FIT) in the mail. Your kit(s) should arrive within fifteen (15) business days from the date payment is received. If you have any queries regarding your order, please call Bowel Cancer Australia on 02 9735 3650.
When you return your completed kit to Enterix Australia, you will also need to complete and include the ColoVantage Information Sheet with your GP's contact details to ensure they also receive the results of your FIT.
If you complete the FIT and blood is found in your sample (a positive screen), you will need to see your GP for further investigations to find out what caused the bleeding. In most cases the bleeding will not be due to bowel cancer, but it is important to determine the cause.
There is no additional postage and handling charge for BowelScreen Australia® screening kit orders as this amount is included the recommended retail price (RRP).
Please note all merchandise and screening kit orders are inclusive of GST.
