Scope:Help on this term

The Bowel cancer screening test cluster comprises a set of standardised data definitions used for monitoring the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP). This cluster includes information on people who participated in the NBCSP and undertook a disease screening test.

This metadata set is not mandated for collection, i.e. it reflects best practice when collecting data in relation to bowel screening rather than a nationally mandated set of data items that must be provided.

It is intended to be used by the National Cancer Screening Register. It can also be used by a wider range of health and health-related professionals who collect and/or use the data in relation to the NBCSP.
