NHS – Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening (AAA)

Posted by:  - Posted on:

In England, screening for AAA is offered to men during the year they turn 65.

Men aged 65 or over are most at risk of getting AAAs.  Screening can help spot aswelling in the aorta early on when it can usually be treated.

Please watch out for your invitation which will be sent by the QE hospital but you will have your scan at a clinic local to where you live.  To change your appointment to a more suitable one please contact your local screening service on 0191 4458747
