If you are a man in his 65th year and live in England you'll be invited to attend free of charge an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening at your local NHS health centre.
Not often you get invited somewhere free of charge so I went.
This is a quick and easy scan to ascertain if there is weakness in the aorta - I was in and out of the medical centre in about 10 minutes.
All very efficient and I would recommend having the scan done when it comes to your turn.
