Re: Many private screening tests have no known benefit

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

and this is the link to the website which we hope is useful to people and doctors/nurses

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