NHS England testing 'Lab in a Bag'


Hey it sounds quite interesting to me. It wasn't long ago oxygen sats monitors where hospital only high tech kit which I regarded as an expensive perk and of little use out in the 'real world' I have one in my bag and I carry it everywhere. Near patient testing is the future and in principle this can't be anything but a good thing. Ok it will cost...if it isn't funded and is too expensive it won't work. It's unlikly to be standard kit for every practice but the idea itself is admirable, why knock it?
