AAA Screening

AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm) Screening Programme

 

All male patients registered with our practice will be invited for screeing in the year they turn 65.  The invitation will come directly from the local screening centre.  If you have turned 65 and have not been previously screened, once the programme is available in the area you can request to be screened.

 

The Screening programme will:

  • Identify aneurysms that need monitoring
  • Discover aneurysms that could rupture enablling treatment to be offered, reassure men who don't have an aneurysm.

The test is a simple ultrasound scan of the abdomen which is painless and non-invasive and the results are provided straight away.  The test is done by a specially trained screener who works within the NHS AAA Screening Programme.
