*Cancelled* Lions announce date for Prostate & Diabetes Screening

** Notification that this has been cancelled due to the virus**

Again this year Uckfield Lions are holding a FREE prostate and diabetes screening day in association with PCaSO-the Prostate Cancer Support Organization.

This will take place in the Belmont Centre, Belmont Road, Uckfield, TN22 1BP on 25th April 2020.

Men aged from 45-80 are encouraged to book a test on-line at :- www.psatesting.org

If patients are unable to book online, then phone booking is possible on 0845 650 2555.

Appointments are available from 10-00am until 1.00 pm.

Men will have a simple blood test taken by nurses and these tests will be analysed in a hospital. The results will be overseen by a Consultant Urologist and patients will receive an email in about a week inviting them to view their results on a secure page. Advice will be given to the patient appropriately using a red, amber, green traffic light system and in certain situations patients will be encouraged to visit their practice for further advice.

At the same time patients, partners and the public are invited to take a diabetes screening which involves one drop of blood again taken by nurses. Results and advice are instantly available with NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY.
