Gee, I wonder why Scotland’s MSM are not onto this great news. Bowel screening is a major strategy in reducing a range of severe illnesses.
Form Public Health Scotland today:
For the two-year period from the 1st of May 2019 to the 30th of April 2021, uptake in this time period was 65%, the highest in the programme’s history, and was higher in females (67%) than males (63%), though both were above the Health Improvement Scotland standard of 60%.https://www.publichealthscotland.scot/publications/scottish-bowel-screening-programme-statistics/scottish-bowel-screening-programme-statistics-for-the-period-of-invitations-from-may-2019-to-april-2021/
I’m trying not to be petty but the figures for a England and Wales are only 58% and 56%. MSM in England and Wales seem unconcerned about another failure to hit targets.
I feel sure the editor of Reporting Scotland once told me it was in the public interest to report NHS performance against targets. Is it only the failures that matter?
