Bowel cancer screening involves a simple, no-invasive at home test that could save your life.
GMHBA offer our members access to the highly accurate ColoVantage® Home faecal immunochemical test (FIT) kit. Screening using a faecal immunochemical test is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of bowel cancer. More information

Hospital Substitute Program
Sometimes a hospital stay is unavoidable but our aim is to help you get home as soon as possible, that’s why GMHBA offer Hospital in the Home (HITH) and Rehabilitation in the Home (RITH). Both services allow patients to be treated in the comfort of their own home. Read more about Hospital in the Home and Rehabilitation in the home.
