FREE NHS Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening for men aged 65+
In April 2012 a new NHS AAA Screening and Surveillance Service for gentlemen aged 65 and over was launched in Coventry and Warwickshire. Should you wish to read more about this AAA Screening Service, please refer to the National AAA Website at http://aaa.screening.nhs.uk where there is more information, in order that you are able to make an informed decision as to whether you wish to take part in this screening programme. Currently, this particular NHS screening programme is not available for ladies, as the prevalence of AAA’s are six times higher in the male population.
Should you wish to register for a scan either ring 01788 663428, or email AAAScreeningProgramme@uhcw.nhs.uk quoting your 10-digit NHS number.
