AAA screening: sharing good practice across the capital

Sharing learning and good practice is important for us to ensure the continuous improvement of the national screening programmes.

The Screening Quality Assurance Service (SQAS) in London is organising a meeting for abdominal aortic aneurysm screening programmes in the capital at the end of this month.

The meeting, on Friday 27 November at the University of London, is open to all AAA screening staff in London, commissioners of adult screening and the London SQAS team.
