Description - Better Value Health Checks by Nick Summerton

This book explores the practical aspects of setting up and assessing the quality of health checks. It is the first book to support clinicians and managers in enhancing the value of health checks in improving health outcomes, an increasingly essential goal for health services. The book will help maximise outcomes for individuals, families and employers by addressing each element within a health check from primary prevention, risk factor reduction and screening to early diagnosis and tertiary prevention. These are considered in relation to their ability to lead to subsequent improvements in individual health outcomes.
