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.
As the screening programme has only been running a few years, if you are over 65 you will not have been contacted. However, you are still entitled to be screened but 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.
