NHS Health Checks scheme hailed as ‘remarkable success’


"All screening does harm." Sir Muir Gray I wonder if this screening programme underwent a cost benefit analysis. I suspect the cost was assumed to be negligible and within the envelope of the block GP contract. I wonder if this programme passed the screening criteria tests of Wilson & Jungner. More likely, it seemed like a vote winner.
