In this episode, Charlie Andrews speaks to Dr Kevin Monahan, lead author for the joint guidelines published by the BSG and ACPGBI in July 2022 outlining the role of FIT testing in patients with symptoms suggestive of colorectal cancer.  These guidelines have informed how we use FIT in primary care, and in this episode he asks Dr Monahan how this guideline has changed clinical practice, they discuss when it should be used and what to do if you have ongoing concerns about your patient’s symptoms.  In addition, they discuss specific situations such as iron deficient anaemia, rectal bleeding, whether we can use it in younger age groups, and whether there is a role for repeat FIT testing.
