Screening & Immunisation

What is Screening?

Screening is a process of identifying apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition. They can then be offered information, further tests and appropriate treatment to reduce their risk and/or any complications arising from the disease or condition.

There are a number of screening programmes available to patients, for more information speak to your GP or visit NHS Choices. More information on available screening can be found here.
