An opportunity for Patient Public Representatives to join the FIT for Screening Study
The FIT for Screening Study will examine the effectiveness of a new bowel cancer screening test called the Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT).
We are particularly interested in people who have an interest in the area of bowel cancer screening. Previous experience with taking part in bowel cancer screening tests is not essential.
You will be involved in reviewing our study design as well as attending two workshops.
