An evaluation of the Waitemata District Health Board Bowel Screening Pilot is being undertaken to help inform a decision on whether it is feasible to roll out a national bowel screening programme.

This report  follows up issues identified in an immersion visit undertaken in 2012 to explore the early implementation of the pilot. It also explores the more recent impact of the pilot on the investigation, surveillance and treatment stages of the pathway.

The report includes excerpts from 30 phone and face-to-face interviews, and group discussions, with providers across the screening pathway.
