Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton gave her backing to the Doncaster Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening programme with a visit to the Sandringham Centre clinic in Intake.

Rosie, pictured with staff Sarah Pantry and Helen McAlinney and screening client Antonio Vedovato, heard how AAAs happen when the main blood vessel in the abdomen weakens and starts to expand. Undetected, the vessel can rupture – an emergency that is usually fatal.
