Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) screening is available for all men aged 65 in England and Northern Ireland. A cohort of eligible males is extracted each year from National Health Applications and Infrastructure Services (NHAIS) systems and uploaded to our Population Index (PI) database.
Using our Message Handling Service, this data is passed on to an external company who manage the screening invitation process (any data exceptions are held on the PI database for investigation and resolution by our internal second line support team before being transferred).
Updates and amendments are captured each day from NHAIS systems and passed to the external company to ensure it's kept up-to-date with the latest data.
