Bowel Screening Histology Data Standard

Public comment on the Draft Bowel Screening Histology Data Standard closed on 29 March 2019.

The National Bowel Screening Programme is a free programme for men and women aged 60–74 years eligible for publically funded health care. The primary objective of bowel screening is to reduce the mortality rate by diagnosing and treating bowel cancer at an earlier more treatable stage. A new system, called the National Screening Solution, is in development and will receive National Bowel Screening Programme data from service providers.

This draft standard is a data set specification for histology reportssent to the National Screening Solution from contracted laboratories.

Thank you to everyone submitting comments. The specification will be updated with any changes and published once our evaluation panel has considered the feedback.
