Many private screening tests have no known benefit

Here is something you might find useful

24 December 2012

Myself and a few colleagues have set up a website designed to help citizens to ask questions about private screening tests they are offered.

There's an article about why it was set up here
http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/blog/2012/oct/05/private-health-screen...

and this is the link to the website which we hope is useful to people and doctors/nurses
http://privatehealthscreen.org/

Competing interests: I helped write the website referred to and have written a book partly about screening
