Draft Bowel Screening Histology Data Standard
The Draft Bowel Screening Histology Data Standard is open for public comment until 5pm, Friday 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 currently in development and will receive National Bowel Screening Programme data from service providers.
This standard identifies and describes the data elements and values that need to be captured and sent to the National Screening Solution from the laboratories contracted to perform National Bowel Screening Programme histology services.
Please visit the Consultation Hub to review and provide feedback on the Draft Bowel Screening Histology Data Standard.
