FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test) is a test that looks for blood in a sample of your poo. It looks for tiny traces of blood that you might not be able to see and which could be a sign of cancer.
Your doctor might give you this test as part of the investigation for your symptoms. The FIT results help your doctor decide whether to refer you urgently for more tests.
If cancer is found early, treatments are more effective.
Boston PCN has created some ‘How to do a FIT Test’ instructions which have been translated for patients in a variety of languages:
There is also a Non-Speaking Video, to demonstrate how to take the test (including how to hold the container and which way is the right way up).

Practice Training Dates 2024
To ensure our Practice teams are kept up-to-date with what’s going on including new developments and to assist them feeling involved in our surgery, we are planning a training meeting each month.
These meetings will generally be on the last Tuesday of each month (unless there is a bank holiday in that week) between 1.30 and 3.30 and all staff will be involved.
During these times, the Practice will be closed and we ask for patient’s understanding and patience. If there are any emergencies, patients should call 999.
