The Department of Health is consulting on the modelling undertaken by its analysts, which shows its proposed programme of vascular checks for patients aged 40-74 is likely to be very cost-effective and result in significant health improvements.

The consultation asks for details of any assumptions that could be improved, if there are factors that have not been considered, and for any potential improvements to the methodology.

The consultation closes on 12 August.
