The UK National Screening Committee advises ministers and the National Health Service on all aspects of population screening. Professor John Deanfield is leading a review of the NHS Health Check programme, which is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. The review will report later in the year.
