BBC Radio 4 PM reporting that many many people do not know about this 
scheme and also many say they have not had the leaflet. They also 
reported that NHS England is trying to find out what went wrong...

My view? The leaflets very quickly went into the recycling box with the 
junk 'mail', as mine nearly did (sic: most of what the postman delivers 
to me these days is sales leaflets) or are still lying behined the front 
door. NHS should have sent personal letters to everybody.
