Patient having initial consultation with doctor

Screening is a process of identifying apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition. They can then be offered information, further tests and appropriate treatment to reduce their risk and/or any complications arising from the disease or condition.

Several screening programmes are available in Wales to support the detection and treatment:

  • Antenatal Screening Wales
  • Newborn Bloodspot Screening Wales
  • Newborn Hearing Screening Wales
  • Diabetic Eye Screening Wales
  • Cervical Screening Wales
  • Breast Test Wales
  • Bowel Screening Wales
  • Wales Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme
