Uptake of MMR vaccine in five year olds is worryingly low in many parts of England. Low vaccination rates lead to poorer health outcomes for children, increased pressure on families from caring for ill children and greater costs for the NHS.

As a society, we need to invest in health and improve people’s wellbeing because it is the right thing to do, and not because we are trying to save money.

NHS Health Checks review could expand the scheme to cover more conditions. But GPs have questioned how cost-effective the scheme is in the first place & how they will be able to carry out the extra work

Thanks Rammya. The evidence to date has not been very supportive of referral management schemes. But that hasn't stopped NHS commissioners from introducing new schemes.

Will look into it to see what is possible (with no external funding).

I’m hearing from NHS colleagues that ‘referral management systems’ are leading to delays in patients getting the care they need. It’s important that these systems are used to improve the quality of referrals and the flow of information – and not as a cost-cutting exercise.

Good to see that is reviewing the NHS Health Check programme. It’s important that any changes to the programme are evidence-based and that there is a rigorous evaluation. These are essential if we are to avoid the problems that occurred with the current programme.
