AAA Screening Update

March 2014

Thanks to everyone who took part in Healthwatch Essex’s survey last year around awareness of AAA screening. The aim of the project was to unravel the complex social influences and attitudes that affect whether or not men take part. You can find out more in this summary of the report

We are thrilled that the report has now taken up by the National Screening Committee. The recommendations about how to improve awareness and uptake of AAA screening have been circulated to the local screening services to help inform how they raise awareness of AAA screening locally. This goes to show just how the voice of patients and the public can be used to improve health and care services.
