TEST RESULTS

NHS SCREENING PROGRAMMES

Screening is a way of finding out if people have a higher chance of having a health problem, so that early treatment can be offered or information given to help them make informed decisions. The current NHS screening programme includes cervical, breast, bowel and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening. We encourage all our patients to attend the screening they are invites to take part in. If you believe you have missed an opportunity for screening we can provide you with the contact details so that you may rearrange your screening test.

More information is available at NHS screening - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
