NZ health minister orders review into national bowel screening program

New Zealand's new health minister David Clark has ordered a review into the national bowel screening program following the discovery that some people had not received invitations for screening as their addresses were not up to date.

The roll-out of the new program, which will take a year longer than expected due to difficulties sourcing a suitable IT system, will continue while the inquiry is undertaken, with a report due by June.
