The Department of Health and Human Services recognises the key role that GPs play in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program by endorsing the program to patients and by managing patients’ positive Faecal Occult Blood Test results. To support the role of GPs in the Program, new resources are now available:
- NBCSP age eligibility matrix by Year of Birth
- Victorian colonoscopy referral information – included with positive FOBT result letters from the Program
- Pre-populated NBCSP GP Assessment Report templates:
- Victorian patient information flyer – included with positive FOBT result letters from the Program.
The Victorian colonoscopy referral information lists the 19 public health services that have agreements to provide colonoscopy services for Program Participants within 30 days for from referral.
