This article was originally published in Clinica
UK primary care trusts are "beginning the phased implementation" of the NHS Health Check vascular screening programme, but the Department of Health (DH) cannot yet provide details of what information will be collected, pending the development of a national minimum dataset, health minister Ann Keen said on November 9. In answer to a question posed by Sandra Gidley MP, Ms Keen told Parliament that the DH is working with the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care to develop the dataset, but that it was "too early to give details about exactly what information will be collected, who will be responsible for administering it or if the information will be published".
