The Prime Minister announced on 7 January that the Department would bring forward proposals for a risk assessment programme within the national health service to assess the population for the risk of vascular diseases. Heart health testing is not currently available in the work place, although private occupational health providers can buy this in for their employees. We are not aware of any representations on this subject in the last 12 months.
