Colorectal cancer population screening
Did you take part in the colorectal cancer population screening, and was blood found in your stool? Please consider coming in for further diagnostic examination at the Netherlands Cancer Institute colonoscopy center. Anyone is welcome at our center, even if The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu; RIVM) has referred you to a different colonoscopy center. You can change your appointment through DigiD. Please see the instructions you received together with your screening results for more information. We can usually schedule your colonoscopy within 15 weekdays. Your colonoscopy will be done by gastroenterologists at the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
The first Dutch colorectal cancer population screening took place in 2014. This population screening program is intended for all men and women between 55 and 75 years old and is carried out by the RIVM. Your stool will be screened for blood. Tests are sent to your home address and can be returned directly to the lab by mail.
If you have any questions, please contact the staff of the colonoscopy center at +31 (0) 20 - 512 9111 or email@example.com.
Your first consultation will be near the entrance of clinic 3 at the ground floor at the Netherlands Cancer Institute. Please register with the assistant in hallway B, the first hallway on your right.
You will get your colonoscopy at our Diagnostics and Treatment Center (Onderzoek en Behandelcentrum; OBC) on the second floor of the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
(Paid) parking is available at the Netherlands Cancer Institute parking garage.
