Patients to be allowed to self-refer for cancer diagnostics without going through GP

What a bunch of F~#kwits . All medical investigations carry a risk - especially those involving radiation . CT is an X-ray density map . Do enough and these might induce cancer in falsely reassured people . Targeted investigation is better all round. Can I suggest mantle irradiation of 2000 rads for berks that thought this one up
