Improved reminder process for colon screening

The BC Cancer Colon Screening program recently changed its process for how patients are recalled for fecal immunochemical test (FIT) re-screening. The changes were based on feedback from patients and primary care providers.

Patients will now receive a lab requisition for a FIT in the mail, which they can take to the lab for pick-up. Previously, they had to see their primary care provider to obtain a requisition. 

By improving the reminder process, the Colon Screening Program is removing barriers and increasing accessibility to this important, potentially life-saving screening test.

Please note that these changes do not apply to patients in the Northern Health region.
