An AAA screening clinic held at Retford golf club led to a small aneurysm being detected in one of the golfers.
David Moore from Retford decided to take up the opportunity to be screened for an AAA due to the convenience of the screening team visiting the club.
During his appointment it was discovered that David had a small aneurysm which can now be monitored to check there is no further growth.

Mr Moore said: “I’m so glad the AAA team held the screening event at Retford Golf Club, I had the scan and it was no trouble at all.
“It picked up a small aneurysm which I had no idea I had got! I visited the nurse the following week, she explained everything and put me at ease; and I can go for my 12 month surveillance appointments at Retford Hospital so it’s not far to go at all.”
