Abstract

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program will reduce the burden of colorectal cancer, saving lives and money.1 The benefits of the program, however, rely on both public and private sectors to deliver colonoscopy, surgery and, if necessary, advanced cancer care. Public confidence in the whole program is likely to be affected by the affordability, ability and availability of these frontline services.
