As men aged 65 and over are at increased risk, all men in their 65th year will automatically be sent an invitation to attend an appointment.
’The West Surrey and North Hampshire, AAA screening programme was implemented in 2012, if you were over the age of 65 at this point you may have missed out on screening. However, you are still entitled to be screened, you will need to contact us to arrange an appointment. Please see our contacts page.
We will ask for your name, address, contact telephone number, date of birth and with which GP practice you are registered. If you know your NHS number, this is helpful, but don’t worry if you don’t know it as we can look this up.
Unfortunately we are not able to screen women or younger men through the programme. However, if you are concerned or have a family history, you can speak with your GP who can arrange for you to be scanned at your local ultrasound department.
