Prostate Cancer - PSA Tests

One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer.

Thanks to recent publicity campaigns, many of you are now asking us for PSA blood tests to see if you are at risk.

 HERE IS HOW WE CAN HELP YOU IF YOU ARE WORRIED

  • Read the information about prostate cancer from Public Health England. This gives you a clear picture of the risks and benefits of having a PSA test. There is no single test to diagnose prostate cancer. Visit our website or scan the QR code at the bottom of the page.
  • If you would like to go ahead with a PSA test, ask reception to book you a phone call appointment with your GP to discuss it. You can use our Engage Consult online triage to request the call too.
  • If you want the test and understand the issues, we will book it for you and fill in the request form.
  • Please also note that 15% of cancers will be missed with a normal PSA.
