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 local community and beyond.

As well as screening for several cancers, we look for the early signs of many other life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, 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 that’s based on ability to pay.

Our Mission

We believe everyone should have access to health screenings, regardless of financial circumstances.

We know that prevention is better than cure.

We receive no statutory funding from Government or the NHS. Our service is made possible by donations, grants and fundraising.
