Bluthochdruck: USA senken Richtwerte für Blutdruck - SPIEGEL ONLINE
see rose (chronic) sick population // Auch Paulus Kirchhof, Direktor des Instituts für Herz-Kreislauf-Wissenschaften an der britischen University of Birmingham, und ebenfalls Autor der europäischen Leitlinien, sieht jetzt sowohl die Ärzte als auch die Patienten in der Pflicht: "Viele Menschen könnten ihren Bluthochdruck senken, indem sie sich mehr bewegen, gesund essen, nicht rauchen, regelmäßig schlafen und wenig Alkohol trinken", sagt Kirchhof. "Ein solches Gespräch müssen Arzt und Patient führen, Medikamente sind nicht immer der richtige Weg." Im individuellen Fall müsse immer abwogen werden, ob das Herz-Kreislauf-Risiko größer sei oder die möglichen Nebenwirkungen einer medikamentösen Therapie.

NHS faces even worse winter crisis than last year, watchdog warns | Society | The Guardian
In an update on how the NHS in England performed between July and September, NHSI said hospitals did not succeed in freeing up the target of 2,000-3,000 beds by September, which would have helped them cope with the extra winter demand.

NHS leaders and the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, told hospitals in the spring that they needed to reduce the number of beds occupied due to “delayed transfers of care” – patients who are fit to leave but cannot safely be discharged – to 3.5% of their total number by September. But 5% of beds are still occupied with such cases, NHSI said.

Internal 'clock' makes some people age faster and die younger – regardless of lifestyle | Science | The Guardian
Scientists have found the most definitive evidence yet that some people are destined to age quicker and die younger than others - regardless of their lifestyle.

The findings could explain the seemingly random and unfair way that death is sometimes dealt out, and raise the intriguing future possibility of being able to extend the natural human lifespan.

“You get people who are vegan, sleep 10 hours a day, have a low-stress job, and still end up dying young,” said Steve Horvath, a biostatistician who led the research at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’ve shown some people have a faster innate ageing rate.”

'Bed-blocking' in Scottish hospitals falls by 9.6% - BBC News
About 400 people were left in hospital because the social care support they needed in order to live in their own home was not available, while more than 200 had to wait for a place in a nursing home.
Of those who could not leave hospital in September 2017, 1,140 had to wait for for more than three days.
A third of delayed patients had to wait in hospital for more than six weeks - a 2% increase from last year, despite the fall in the figures overall.

NHS staff 'working on edge of safety' - BBC News
NHS staff in England are working on the "edge of safety" as rising demand is outstripping the increasing numbers being employed, health bosses say.
There are now 6% more staff than there were three years ago, but demand for services has risen by three times as much in some areas.
NHS Providers, which represents health chiefs, said staff shortages was now the number one concern in the NHS.

"We notice there is an extensive list of patient conditions such as frailty, pregnancy and mental health conditions that are the essence of general practice and which GPs deal with every day, but which are not eligible for this service. &! - NHS launches £100m drive to recruit foreign GPs &! - GP practices close in record numbers &! - Online GP consultation: Opportunity or threat? - two-tier system, creaming off the healthiest patients. cherry picking. see privatisation of elective care and non-challenging adult elderly care. [...] The RCGP argues that existing community practices will be left with lower revenue and having to look after the sickest with the most complex conditions, hence the claim that there was a danger of "twin-track" general practice evolving. ALSO How easy will it be to avoid prescribing antibiotics - just to be on the safe side?"

Among the detail announced so far includes a wider healthcare team taking over some jobs traditionally done by the GP, including some chronic disease management, routine checks, and drug monitoring.

GPs will have access to NHS-run services including prescribing and treatment room services to reduce their workload.
