AAA screening - for gentlemen aged over 65 years
Patients make a self referral to this free service. If you are a patient registered at the practice you would attend the practice for your ultrasound scan.
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 may I suggest that you refer to the National AAA Website at https://www.gov.uk/topic/population-screening-programmes/abdominal-aortic-aneurysm
where there is more information in order that you are able to make an informed decision as to whether you wish to refer into this programme. Currently, this particular NHS screening programme is not available for ladies, as the prevalence of AAA’s is five times higher in the male population.
Should you wish to register for a scan then can I ask you to either ring 01788 663428, or email AAAScreeningProgramme@uhcw.nhs.uk quoting your 10-digit NHS number.
