Our Vision

Transforming cancer services to deliver better outcomes for patients in the East of England

Faecal Immunochemical Testing (FiT) in Primary Care

We will implement FIT in primary care throughout the East of England as a diagnostic test for suspected lower gastro intestinal (GI) cancers, with a view to identifying more patients at risk of colorectal cancer with otherwise low-risk symptoms. 

Better sensitivity of FIT testing in comparison to gFOBt testing will lead to earlier detection of polyps and improved prevention of colorectal cancer.

GPs will have direct access to FiT testing to speed up ruling out a cancer diagnosis.

Shaping excellence in cancer care - prevention and access to high quality cancer services across the East of England
