Cover Magazine - Govt. declares 2020s will be 'decade of prevention'

By Adam Saville 23 July 2019.

Genomics, artificial intelligence and smart devices, Department of Health & Social Care ushers in 'new wave' of 'intelligent public health' with consultation.

The government has opened a consultation entitled ‘Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s' which closes on 14 October.
