Are you receiving National Bowel Screening results electronically?

Published 08 September 2021

The most effective and quick way to clean up your practice’s data is to ensure that results are sent to you electronically.


Doing so allows PenCAT to automatically recognise HL7 formatted items and requires no further action.

Your practice can also access National Bowel Screening Program results online with Sonic Dx or Fetch. To do so, please ensure all your doctors are setup to access results for patients who have nominated them as their general practitioner (GP). Also, encourage patients to list you as their preferred GP when having services provided through the cancer screening program.

If a GP is not setup and would like to receive results in the HL7 format, please contact Doctor IT Services on 1800 100 769 or
