We couldn’t keep Hospi away from the giant inflatable bowel in the hospital atrium today! This unique display celebrates CCDHB joining the National Bowel Screening Programme, and is helping to raise awareness of bowel cancer and the rollout of invitations to screen.

Bowel Screening saves lives and is free for eligible people aged 60-74. It’s a quick and simple test done at home so please encourage your whānau and friends to complete the test kit when they receive it in the mail.
