Private health MOTs could do more harm than good

21st April 2009

Experts have said private health tests often provide patients with conflicting data which could have a negative impact.

Prof Christopher Hood, from Oxford University, who is leading an inquiry for the Nuffield Council on Bioethics into the tests, said: "Cutting out the GP may sometimes be a good thing, providing us with convenience, privacy and control over our health."

"But there is not much regulation of these new services and we may be getting information that causes more harm than good."
