The address listed on this page is the location of the local screening service office, not a screening clinic. The service delivers abdominal aortic aneurysm screening in locations throughout the area, including GP surgeries and hospitals. Invitations for AAA screening are sent automatically to men registered with a GP during the year they turn 65. Men aged over 65 who have not previously been screened can request an appointment by contacting their local screening service. The screening test for AAA is a simple, pain-free ultrasound scan of the abdomen that usually takes less than 10 minutes.
