Screening identifies those at higher risk of certain conditions among apparently healthy people. The NHS offers a range of screening tests to different sections of the population, depending on their age and other risk factors.

For women, there are nationally organised breast, cervical, and bowel screening programmes. The NHS Health Checks offer a general assessment for risks around cardiovascular disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Your GP may also arrange screening for osteoporosis. For women who are over 40 and pregnant, screening for genetic disorders are also available. Screening is a statistical tool, however, so you should always report unusual or severe symptoms if they occur.
