Instructions and troubleshooting for the National Bowel Screening Programme Medtech patient prompt install and implementation.
Practices will find the news item on the BPAC main menu under 'News'. To remind you to run the news item, a message will pop up when you go into BPAC to let you know it is there.
The news item will tell you what to do and will have links to click to install the changes to the prompt. BPAC helpdesk will be on hand to support this if you have technical difficulties. If you have questions around the programme please contact your practice development facilitator.
If you have concerns about installing yourself, it is suggested practices contact their tech support to let them know this is coming and book in a time to complete the install after 8 September.
Patient prompt suggests an opportunistic discussion and offer to support the ordering of FIT kits for eligible patients.
If the patient has completed their FIT kit, and a positive result is received by the practice, the GP will have the results discussion with the patient then it will prompt the GP to send the positive bowel screening referral to the local bowel screening team.
