Pilot assessment


The first Assessment Centre opened by UK Biobank (Cheadle, 2006) is known as the Pilot centre. The results from it were used to refine the design of the questionnaires and measurement techniques for the subsequent centres. As a consequence of this refinement process some of the questions and tests used in the Pilot were superceded and do not appear in the results from the later centres. Approximately 3600 people attended the Pilot centre.
