Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) (Nice, 2020)

This is a new guideline from NICE on investigating and managing AAA. It was published in Mar 2020. The main things for us are being aware of who we should be encouraging screening for.

Who should we be promoting screening to?

Screening is offered to all men in the year they turn 65.

Inform all men of 66 or more that screening for AAA is available and that they can self-refer. Details on how to self-refer can be found on the NHS website.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum."
