The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program annual monitoring report 2009 presents national statistics on key program activity, performance and outcome indicators for people invited to screen in 2008. Trend and national bowel cancer incidence and mortality data are also included to provide context. In 2008, participation in the program was around 39% and documented follow-up procedures detected 302 people having cancer; however, this represents only a partial picture of outcomes due to time lags and incomplete reporting.
