Due to continued issues with Covid outbreaks in Australia, where the bowel kit manufacturer and test centre are based, we have been experiencing delays with both international postal and courier services. This has impacted the timely arrival of all bowel kits and they are arriving too late for successful testing.
We have made the decision to suspend all dispatches of our bowel kits until delivery times become more reliable.
Accuro has partnered with Clinical Genomics who have developed the easy-to-use Bowel Screening Kit and can be purchased by any Accuro member for the special price of $33.00 including postage. The normal retail price is $62.99 plus postage.

Bowel Cancer is more common in the 50 years + age group, but around 300 people under the age of 50 are diagnosed each year. We have had several members experience a positive test, which has resulted in further investigation and treatment.
Even if you don’t have symptoms you could still have an innocent growth called a polyp that could quickly develop into bowel cancer. Most of us don’t enjoy the thought of taking a ‘poo’ test but it’s quick and easy to do with the home bowel testing kits and it could save your life.
The National Bowel Screening Programme is a free programme to help detect bowel cancer.
Over 20 members in the past few months have tested positive and had to undergo further investigation and treatment.
In another New Zealand first, specialist not-for-profit health insurer Accuro has launched a free wellbeing programme to all of its 30,000 members. The Accuro Health Hub gives each member access to support, information and resources to improve their health.
