Objectives and scope of activities

ESCAP provides an expert scientific and clinical forum for the NHS Health Check programme, acting in an advisory capacity to support successful roll-out, maintenance, evaluation and continued improvement based on emerging and best evidence. ESCAP will play a critical role in ensuring the programme's content is frequently reviewed and in line with the best available evidence.
