Abstract

This study finds that the routine identification of pregnant women for treatment of hyperglycaemia cannot be considered cost-effective given the absence of evidence of longer-term benefit.

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) publishes research information on the effectiveness, costs and broader impact of health technologies for those who use, manage and provide care in the NHS. Find out more about the HTA journal.
