Dr Ed Seward, consultant gastroenterologist at London’s UCLH trust, which is running the trial, added: ‘Too many patients are currently coming into hospital to have what turns out to be an unnecessary colonoscopy.‘We believe that many of them could take this simple stool test in the comfort of their own home, and get reassurance from their GP without needing to come to hospital for a camera test.’In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, everyone over the age of 60, regardless of whether they have symptoms, is invited to take part in screening every two years until the age of 75.
