An AAA screening clinic was organised in partnership with the Community Shop, a social supermarket and the nearby pub in Goldthorpe. 17 men were screened and given the all clear.

This is an example of working with local communities to raise awareness of the importance of AAA screening in a bid to get as many men screened as possible.

Kate Roberts, Lead Mentor at the Community Shop said: “We have been delighted to work with the AAA screening team to bring the essential screening to men in the local area. It has been of great benefit to the community in raising awareness of the symptomless condition as well as giving peace of mind to the local men who were screened and given the all clear on the day.”
