Get checked- It could save your life

We would encourage you regardless of your disability, ethnicity, gender reassignment, religion or sexual orientation to attend the screening for your age.

Bowel screening:

Aged 50-74 every 2 years

If you are aged between 50 to 74 you will receive a bowel cancer screening kit every 2 years. It is very important that you complete and return this test.  This simple test can detect bowel cancer at an early stage. If its detected early enough there's a 9 out of 10 chance of beating it.  You should complete the test even if you've had no symptoms and feel fine. Please visit for more information.


Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening (AAA):

Aged 65


Prostate Cancer:

There is no national screening programme for prostate cancer because we don’t have a reliable enough test to use. Please follow the link below for further info.
