If you have any health concerns, always see your GP, alternatively please look out for mobile units that offer free screenings.
Women aged 50 to 70, who are registered with a GP, are automatically invited for screening every three years. Evidence shows that screening this age group gives the best chance of detecting any abnormalities early.
Women, aged 25 to 65, are automatically invited for screening if registered with a GP.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening
An estimated 1 in 25 men, aged 65 to 74, have an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The NHS AAA Screening Programme invites men for screening during the year (1 April to 31 March) that they turn 65.
Diabetic Eye Screening
People with diabetes are at risk of damage from diabetic retinopathy, a condition that can lead to sight loss if it's not treated. That is why people who are diabetic should attend eye screening every year. All people aged 12 and over with diabetes (type 1 and 2) are offered eye screening appointments every year.
