Very easy. You just need to put a poo sample in the tube they send you.
I find it easiest to put toilet paper in the loo before I open my bowels, it keeps the matter easier to access.

the kit will give you all the instructions.

i know bednobs, but confess i don't always follow them properly.
yes very easy and easier still now they only ask for one sample not three. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/bowel-cancer-screening-kit-how-to-use
Yes I have done it you will get sent it through the post with instructions it is easy to do follow instructions I was pleased to do it. Every two years you will be tested.
No problem. They've updated the kit over the past few years and made it even easier to use.
It has to be easy to do - otherwise you wouldn't have hundreds of thousands of people doing it.

i thought they used to have more than one test, like over a couple of days.
It used to be three, now it is one
Be grateful you only have to take your own sample :(
"i know bednobs, but confess i don't always follow them properly."
