The service is intended for both the public and health professionals, and endeavours to:
- explain the facts behind the headlines and give a better understanding of the science that makes the news,
- provide an authoritative resource for GPs that they can rely on when talking to patients, and
- become a trusted resource for journalists and others involved in the dissemination of health news.
This feature has now been added to our Understanding Evidence page, to enable a greater understanding of the health stories reported in the news.
