Funding the NHS: Is it finally time for a new approach? - BBC News
A ring-fenced tax for health and social care has been resisted in the past by the Treasury. Such a policy is known by economists as hypothecation. Opponents, including Treasury mandarins, believe it ties the hands of chancellors.

But, intriguingly, a former top civil servant at the Treasury, Sir Nick Macpherson, has come out in favour of a ring-fenced tax which is renewed every five years.

Jeremy Hunt orders NHS England bosses to stick to waiting time limits
Health secretary swiftly rejects service chiefs’ public warning that meeting targets is impossible with current funding [...] In an unprecedented move reflecting a widening gulf with the government, NHS England used its board meeting to warn that it had to make “difficult choices” next year that would involve limiting what it could provide for patients. [ only providing basics life saving treatments - not life improvement treatments (elective surgery) ] [...] NHS England has also said it is unable to implement best practice as advised by Nice on a routine basis – an extraordinary state of affairs. We have now reached a point where the NHS constitution will be routinely breached and NHS services are being withdrawn.”

£1bn funding shortfall may force UK care homes to close, says watchdog | Society | The Guardian
Fees paid by cash-strapped councils fail to meet costs of caring for residents, according to Competition and Markets Authority [...] In its report into the £16bn care homes sector, which covers 410,000 residents and stretches across 11,300 homes, the CMA said “urgent action” was needed because the current regime was “not sustainable” without additional funding.

It suggested that people who paid for their own care were being asked to pay more than they should in order to subsidise council-funded residents.

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.
