NHS England testing 'Lab in a Bag'


(1) So we are expected to become Dr McCoy , Bones , of Star Trek? How long a consultation in general practice should be then with all these included? (2) Sensitivity and specificity of these test kits are not the same as lab tests? (3) Of course, cost ? Who foot the bill??? It is cut the cost reducing the number of tests in labs? It is cheaper to ask GPs to do everything ?
