Synopsis: 
A cross-sectional, six-station screening process for non-communicable diseases was carried out at a walk-in clinic in Trinidad and Tobago: invitation and consent, history, biometrics, blood levels and urinalysis (laboratory), basic examinations and an exit interview. This process was found to be feasible and provided monetary value in three of four scenarios.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The overall aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of recommending a screening process for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and their risk factors, as a national and regional model.
