This report presents statistics on the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP). This monitoring report is the first to measure the NBCSP using NBCSP key performance indicators. Of those who were invited to participate in the NBCSP between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2014, 37% undertook screening. For those screened in 2014, 7% had a positive result warranting further assessment. One in 32 participants who underwent a follow-up diagnostic assessment were diagnosed with a confirmed or suspected cancer.
