The NHS Health Check in England, bereavement by suicide, and public involvement in medical research: Most read articles in January

NHS Health Checks, the risks of bereavement by suicide, and public involvement in medical research


The Top 10 Most Read list for January is almost completely comprised of new entries, with the exception of the ever popular review by Kristensen et al on the effects of statins. In the top spot this month is an evaluation of the first four years of the NHS Health Check in England, by Robson et al. At number two we have a cross-sectional study seeking to test the hypothesis that young adults bereaved by suicide have an increased risk of suicidal ideation and suicide attempt compared to their peers bereaved by other sudden deaths. Parsons et al enter the list at number five with a paper asking what pharmaceutical industry professionals believe about public involvement in medicines research and development, and Joost et al enter at number eight with a paper on persistent spatial clusters of high body mass index.
