The results of pre-employment haematological screening from 958 prospective National Health Service (NHS) workers were reviewed. Although many abnormalities were found, few were judged to be clinically significant. In only one case did the examination affect employment. Haematological screening is an unnecessary part of the pre-employment medical assessment of prospective NHS employees.
