BIVDA briefs Parliamentary candidates on improving early diagnosis ahead of General Election

With the General Election on 12 December 2019 on the horizon, BIVDA has provided tailored diagnostics briefings to a number of selected Parliamentary candidates with backgrounds and interests in the health and technology sectors, ahead of the publication of party manifestos.


The briefings outline the need to improve early diagnosis in the NHS through the better use of diagnostics, and cover:

-     The reasons for improving early diagnosis in the UK

-     The benefits to both the NHS and society yielded by improving access to, and use of, diagnostics across the NHS

-     How diagnostics are already supporting early diagnosis and the benefits this is presenting to the health service and patients alike
