In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is encouraging GPs to screen patients before symptoms get too severe so that they can be referred to specialists sooner.

Referring patients sooner has many benefits. It can help reduce the number of GP appointments patients have before they see a specialist, which in turn frees up our time for others.
