How do the JBS 2 Guidelines perform?
In 2005 the Joint British Societies published updated guidelines (1).
Many people would be very interested to see how well the new guidelines
perform in relation to the old (and other national guidelines). E.g., what
is the NNT? And, what are the effectiveness and efficiency gaps? Please
publish an update to Figure 2 in the paper? Thanks very much. Michael
