AAA Screening

Invitations for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening are sent automatically to men registered with a GP during the year they turn 65. Men aged over 65 who have not previously been screened can request an appointment by contacting their local screening service. The screening test for AAA is a simple, pain-free ultrasound scan of the abdomen that usually takes less than 10 minutes.

If you have not received an invitation please telephone 01727 897719 to book an appointment.

Bowel Cancer Screening

Everyone aged 60 to 74 who is registered with a GP and lives in England is automatically sent a bowel cancer screening kit every 2 years. The programme includes 56 year olds.

Make sure your GP practice has your correct address so your kit is posted to the right place.

If you're 75 or over, you can ask for a kit every 2 years by phoning the free bowel cancer screening helpline on 0800 707 60 60.

If you're worried about a family history of bowel cancer or have any symptoms, speak to a GP for advice.
