Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening

 The surgery will be included in the National NHS screening programe for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

We urge any patient who receives an invitation to take up the offer as symptoms at an early stage are not easily detectable and patients generally will not notice any symptoms either.

 Early treatment of Aneurysms that are found using screening is very effective

This will be for men who are aged 65 at this current time
