SPIRE - NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices. 

A new campaign is underway to inform patients across Scotland of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.

You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to spire.scot

Scottish Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme (AAA)aaa

This AAA screening programme is for all men aged 65 and over who live in Scotland. The aorta is the main artery that supplies blood to your body. It runs from your heart down through your chest and abdomen (tummy). As some people get older, the wall of the aorta in the abdomen can become weak and balloon out to form an aneurysm. This is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The condition is most common in men aged 65 and over. It is estimated that about 1 in 20 men aged 65 in Scotland have an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

If you have an aneurysm, you are unlikely to have any symptoms. This means that you cannot tell if you have one, as you will not feel any pain or notice anything different. You may feel completely healthy. The Scottish AAA Screening Programme is inviting you for screening so we can find aneurysms early and monitor or treat them. This greatly reduces the chance of the aneurysm rupturing and causing serious problems. The simplest and best way to find out if you have an aneurysm is to carry out an ultrasound scan of your abdomen.
