The NHS AAA Screening Programme is holding an all-day event for nurse specialists on 19 September.
Lisa Summers has worked in screening since 2009 when she set up a local Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme (Central England) after working in general management for the same acute Trust since 1996.
She is now employed by Public Health England as national programme manager for the NHS AAA Screening Programme in England. Lisa is an enthusiastic outgoing manager who relishes the day to day challenges of her role and collaborative working with colleagues in the other 10 screening programmes.
Lisa lives in Market Bosworth and enjoys walking and socialising when not running around organising her two young children!
Today, in association with our colleagues in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we have launched guidance for AAA screening providers, commissioners and other stakeholders on sharing learning and good practice in reducing barriers to attendance.
