281,400 people (2% of people aged 15 years or over) delayed having or did not have a pathology test in the past year because of the cost, and 329,000 people (2%) delayed having or did not have an imaging test in the past year because of the cost. Slightly more women than men found cost a barrier to pathology and imaging tests (see Tables 2.1 to 2.3 for more detail).
