The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program performance indicator set (NBCSP PIs) comprises a set of standard indicators used for monitoring the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP). The indicator set includes information on people who have participated or will be participating in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.
