Screening Champion Training

On 17th May Ffion Poole, Kath Toms, Sharon Cochrane and Christy Taylor attended the Public Health Wales Screening Training Program at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, Victoria House, Newport. The training included discussions on cervical screening, bowel screening, breast screening, abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, and diabetic eye screening.  Having completed the training, the four people who attended from Caerphilly People First are now ‘Screening Champions’ and are hoping to raise awareness about the importance of screening among our members, and other people in the wider community.

The champions would like to stress to anyone reading this that if you think something is wrong and you have any symptoms of the illnesses listed above, it’s vital that you contact your GP and request a screening.screening
