All men will be invited to their local hospital, GP surgery or health clinic in the year that they turn 65 for a simple and pain-free ultrasound test to see if they have an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Screening is taking place at 65 locations across the area.
Men over 65 who have not been screened previously can arrange a screening appointment by contacting their local programme directly.
Screening involves an ultrasound scan that takes around 10 minutes.
For further information on the local service please contact the Five Rivers AAA Screening Programme:
