In this section you can find out about what it's like to take part in bowel screening (Faecal Occult Blood test) by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 44 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as deciding to take part, the Faecal Occult Blood test, colonoscopy and getting results. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring. The site does not cover Flexible Sigmoidoscopy (flexi-sig) screening as this was introduced after the interviews were collected.
