Patients to book own chest X-rays under new cancer self-referral pilot


same will be when for example they come for something else like a flu jab, "whilst im here, I want a blood test for cancer" what test? "you know the test for cancer" , I know why not do an online shopping for investigations- tick the box, put it in the basket, after all it wont cost anything, might be a good idea if the prices of these test were shown and a disclaimer to state that no test in the world is 100% reliable , so I think the government is trying to get rid of primary care
