Julia Manning, Chief Executive, 2020health spoke on Sky News about the new NICE guidelines to encourage GP's to screen patients showing possible signs of cancer, quicker and earlier. GP's may be given tools to carry out basic diagnostic tests in surgeries. Julia pointed out that the previous advice was 10 years out of date so the new guidelines are welcome and the public can only benefit, though they must of course have realistic expectations.
