Health Screening For Life

For more than 30 years, the Mary How Trust has been offering life-saving health screenings to individuals over 18 in our local Sussex community and beyond.

We look for the early signs of many life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, bowel cancer, diabetes, and aortic aneurysm.

We’re here to listen to your health concerns too, and offer lifestyle guidance to help you stay well.

We are entirely donor supported, and instead of charging a fixed fee for our health screenings, we ask for a donation based on what you can afford.

I go every two years to have my health screening and have a regular DD set up to help/donate towards this. It’s brilliant!! It’s very reassuring to have all the tests and the results are sent to you quickly. You are referred back to your GP if anything is found on the scans or if any other concerns. Your GP gets a copy of your results with your agreement. The health consultation is really helpful too and can help you keep an eye on any possible health risks in the future. Staff are friendly, helpful and reassuring.

Both my husband and I have attended Mary How every two years and they have pre empted a few health issues which we have been able to get further treatment for before any real symptoms appeared. We are so grateful for that. Everyone who reads this review should make that appointment now, don't put It off any longer, you will be glad you took the opportunity to get the thorough health check and reassurance this freely available trust gives. I have never known anything other than kindness and support over the 20 years I have been using this wonderful service

Kind and professional team who put me at ease and were highly knowledgable.Incredibly thorough health screening with a comprehensive report collated and issued promptly after my visit.Modern facilities and equipment which were easy to find and park.I highly recommend the Mary How Trust and the lovely staff that work there.

We believe everyone should have access to health screenings, regardless of financial circumstances. We know that prevention is better than cure.
