The NHS Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening Programme aims to reduce deaths from AAA through early detection, and invites men registered with a general practitioner (GP) for ultrasound screening during the year they turn 65. Men aged over 65 who have not previously been diagnosed with an aneurysm can self-refer directly to their local screening programme without going through their GP.
