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.

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.
