What to do if your child is overweight - BBC News
One in ten young people in the UK, aged between five and 19, is obese, according to new research that looks at obesity trends in over 200 countries. Consultant paediatrician Prof Mary Rudolf, who advises the government on obesity, says many parents would not know that "a healthy 10-year-old's ribs should be clearly visible - many parents would consider that such a child was quite underweight". //&! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39846385 &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-37859484 &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-37108767 - Childhood obesity: Plan attacked as 'weak' and 'watered down' &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36805577 - Public health cuts 'could hamper anti-obesity effort' &!

Global cost of obesity-related illness to hit $1.2tn a year from 2025 | Society | The Guardian
The cost of treating ill health caused by obesity around the world will top $1.2tn every year from 2025 unless more is done to check the rapidly worsening epidemic, according to new expert estimates. Obesity and smoking are the two main drivers behind the soaring numbers of cancers, heart attacks, strokes and diabetes worldwide, grouped together officially as non-communicable diseases. They are the biggest killers of the modern world.

Chronic ill health among working age population poses 'unsustainable drain' on NHS | HeraldScotland
Currently 39 per cent of the working age population in Scotland has at least one long-term condition, but that is forecast to surge as the population ages and Scotland grapples with the fallout of an obesity epidemic.

Prof MacDonald said a failure to prevent and manage long-term conditions properly would be catastrophic as pension age increases to 68 or more.

Obese patients denied surgery in a third of areas in England
A report by the Royal College of Surgeons found a third of local NHS health bosses in England put restrictions on access to surgery.
But it says this goes against official guidance and can prolong patient pain.
However, some local NHS groups criticised in the report say their polices are based on good evidence.
The Royal College of Surgeons has been increasingly alarmed about the rationing of surgery in the NHS in the tough financial climate.
Its report is based on freedom of information returns from nearly all of the 209 clinical commissioning groups in England and all seven health boards in Wales.
While some CCGs have voluntary policies in place, where patients are encouraged to stop smoking or lose weight, others have introduced mandatory policies, which means patients have to meet fixed criteria before surgery. [ie have to show able to eat better/healthier and thus lose weight sustainably.] //&! bbc.in/1SzumEt "clinical guidance" vs "good evidence"

Eye risk from 'overstretched NHS'
NHS is struggling to keep up because of a "perfect storm" of increased demand, caused by more eye disease in an ageing population which requires requiring long term care. [...] Hospital attendances have increased year on year in the UK, with over 100m outpatient appointments made in England alone during 2013-14, of which nearly 10% are for eye care. Common eye conditions which were previously untreatable, such as age-related macular degeneration, can now be treated successfully, but this adds to the demand on eye clinics. [...] With an increase of up to 30% in eye clinic attendances over the last five years, we can no longer ignore the pressure mounting in hospital eye services. // http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=macular+degeneration

Physios in surgeries 'can save GPs time and money'
Musculo-skeletal conditions are thought to make up as much as 30% of all GP appointments.
Physiotherapists say that if they could be the first point of contact for patients with these conditions, GPs could dedicate more time to people with other conditions.
During a three-month pilot in West Cheshire, more than 700 patients who would otherwise have seen a GP, were seen by a physiotherapist.
The arrangement is now in place in 36 GP practices in the area.

Commuters who shun car travel keep slimmer, study concludes
People who cycle, walk or catch the train or bus to work keep more weight off than commuters who travel by car, a large UK study has found.
The results come from 150,000 UK adults aged 40 or older who agreed to be measured and weighed and fill in a survey about their typical journey to and from work.
Cycling came out as the best activity for staying trim, followed by walking.
But even those who used public transport were leaner than car users. [...] Even when they factored in differences such as leisure-time, exercise, diet and occupation, the trend between commute method and bodyweight remained.

North East England sees highest proportion of weight loss surgery - BBC News
The number of bariatric operations fell in the past three years, Freedom of Information requests reveal. Since 2013, there has been a more targeted approach, NHS England said. However, campaigners are calling for more funding for weight loss surgery. The National Obesity Forum says it would ultimately save the NHS money. And it said the decline of heavy industry and manual work in the North East had contributed to obesity problems, resulting in a greater rate of surgery. [...] An NHS England spokeswoman explained the drop was because bariatric treatment was currently handled as a national policy, rather than separately by each local area. She said it was now only offered to "appropriately selected patients".

The cost of being unhealthy - BBC News
In fact, it is often overlooked in the continuing debate about the pressures on the NHS that getting people to live healthier lives is critical to the future of the NHS. In October, NHS chiefs made an unprecedented plea to ministers - they asked for more money. But it wasn't a "something for nothing" request. They set out a compelling case about how the health service was facing a £30bn shortfall by 2020 - and said if the budget was increased by £8bn in real terms they would do the rest.

Middle-aged 'risk unhealthy retirement' - BBC News
Public Health England's One You campaign is urging the over 40s to drink less, exercise more, eat better and give up smoking. It is the first national campaign to specifically target this group. Currently more than two-fifths of those aged 45 to 64 are living with an illness or disability in England. The campaign will warn those in middle-age that unless they change their ways they could die early or face a retirement blighted with ill-health. While overall life expectancy has been rising in recent decades, the years people spend in good health has changed little. But research has shown that living healthy in middle age can double an individual's chances of being healthy at 70. [...] 40% of deaths are related to lifestyle //&!

Radical cancer treatment seeks to control rather than destroy tumours | Science | The Guardian
Instead of eradicating cancer, the new goal for doctors needs to be prevention of cancer disease, she adds. “We need to stabilise tumour growth and enable gradual, controlled regression over time.” Charles Swanton, a scientist at the Francis Crick Institute in London, who is part-funded by Cancer Research UK, said: “How cancers become resistant to treatment has been one of the greatest challenges facing doctors and their patients. This work tries to find a way around a phenomenon known as ‘competitive release’, where drug resistant cancer cells survive and take over the tumour once the drug-sensitive cells have been killed off. “When this happens in cancers, the disease is often much harder to treat due to the limited number of drug options available.

Genetics of cancer tumours reveal possible treatment revolution | Science | The Guardian
[Immunotherapy does] not work in everyone [and every cancer]. One approach releases the brakes on the immune system, unleashing the full force of killer T cells, which are otherwise dampened down by cancer cells. But to work, the patient’s immune system must first recognise the cancer as the enemy. Charles Swanton, an expert on cancer evolution who led the latest study at the Francis Crick Institute in London, said the discovery of surface proteins shared by all of a patient’s cancer cells provided an “achilles heel” for future therapies to target. [...] As tumours grow, they evolve. Over time, mutations scramble the DNA, and one part of the tumour starts to look very different to another. [And chemo stops working.] [...] [NOT CHEAP!] //&! bit.ly/1WJVe59 - Experimental therapy tested in mice could lead to patients living healthy lives with tumours constantly kept in check with low doses of medicine //&! bit.ly/1RM5yIO

Obesity bigger cost for Britain than war and terror | Society | The Guardian
Britain spending £47bn a year dealing with the healthcare and social costs of an increasingly overweight population, study finds. Obesity is a greater burden on the UK’s economy than armed violence, war and terrorism, costing the country nearly £47bn a year, a report has found. The study, commissioned by consultancy firm McKinsey and Company, reveals obesity has the second-largest economic impact on the UK behind smoking, generating an annual loss equivalent to 3% of GDP. [...] It has called for a co-ordinated response from governments, retailers, restaurants and food and drink manufacturers to address what it calls the “global obesity crisis”. A series of 44 interventions could bring 20% of overweight or obese people in UK back to normal weight within five to 10 years, the report says. This would save around £16bn a year in the UK, including an annual saving of about £766m in the NHS, according to the study. [...] “Today 25% of the nation is obese and 37% is overweight.

Tooth decay still on the rise among English children - BBC News
figures [are] "disappointing". [C]hildren in England drank more sugary drinks than anywhere in Europe. "Even though people understand the impact of a sugary diet so many children have advanced tooth decay - a highly preventable disease," said Ms Hurley. "We are also creating a legacy of obesity and significant health problems. "If we are to get serious about tackling this then prevention is the key," she added. [...] Prof Nigel Hunt from the Royal College of Surgeons said: "An almost 10% increase in the number of children being admitted to hospital for tooth extraction due to decay over a four-year period is unacceptable." "The need for tooth extraction continues to be the number one reason why five to nine-year-old children are admitted to hospital." He also said that poor oral health education was another reason for the rise. 'Deprivation correlation' [...] "As deprivation increases so does the rate of tooth extraction."

Care homes 'could solve NHS bed-blocking' - BBC News
Every day thousands of elderly patients are unable to leave hospitals despite being medically fit to do so, because care is not available in the community. But Respublica said if care homes took them in it would be a "win, win". The think tank said it would free up hospital beds, while bringing in vital investment into the care sector. Currently there are about 4,300 patients stuck in hospital each day because of problems discharging them - taking up over 4% of all general beds in hospital. The report, which received funding from care home providers, said if current trends continued the numbers could increase by about 1,000 in the next five years, costing the NHS £3.3bn in total over the period. It said if this money was spent on care homes they could take on all the patients facing delays, while investing in staff and facilities.

New NHS cancer drugs fund approved - BBC News
[ 98% always the case of life extension ~<5yrs // demand will continue to outstrip resources ] It has announced changes to the heavily criticised and regularly overspent Cancer Drugs Fund, which pays for drugs the NHS has deemed unaffordable. The new system will start in July 2016 and have a fixed budget of £340m. No patients receiving drugs on the old Cancer Drugs Fund will have their medication stopped. At present, the CDF can choose to pay for innovative drugs the health watchdog, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), has rejected for widespread use on the NHS. But under the new system, NICE will make all the decisions. By the time a drug comes on to the market, NICE will give it a yes, no or maybe rating. Those given the go-ahead will be routinely offered across the NHS while those given a maybe rating can be considered for the CDF. However, there will be "clear entry and exit criteria" to ensure money is spent on only the best breakthrough drugs.

GPs call for more Scottish government funding - BBC News
GPs have lost out on £1.6bn of investment over the last 10 years, according to the Royal College of General Practitioners Scotland. It claims there have been "cumulative cuts" to general practice's share of NHS Scotland spending over a decade. The RCGP Scotland is lobbying for general practice to receive 11% of the Scottish NHS budget. But ministers insisted GP funding had increased each year under the SNP administration. The RCGP said Scots had lost about 4.5 million consultations per year over 10 years and called for the Scottish government to stop the decline in funding. Opposition parties also hit out at the "staggering level of underinvestment" in community health. //&! Labour and the SNP trade claims over hospital waiting times - bbc.in/1VArMON

[ resource and demand mismatch ] More than 352,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK each year - a 12% increase in the rate since the mid-90s, Cancer Research UK says. [...] Experts say the rise is mainly due to the ageing and growing population. And while the chances of getting cancer have increased, they say the chance of surviving it has also improved. But the charity warns despite more accurate tests, better treatments and many cancers being spotted earlier, there are some cancers where survival rates are still low.

Scientists: air pollution led to more than 5.5 million premature deaths in 2013 | Environment | The Guardian
“Air pollution is the fourth-highest risk factor for death globally and by far the leading environmental risk factor for disease,” said Michael Brauer, a researcher from the University of British Columbia. Brauer said air pollution contributed to heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema and acute infections. He and his colleagues compared the problem in Asia to the conditions under centuries of industrial revolution in the US and Europe: massive economic growth smothered by clouds of toxic matter in the air. [... COAL ...] “Even in the most clean scenario in 2030,” Ma said, China’s growing and ageing population will still suffer 990,000 to 1.3 million deaths a year.

NHS 'will miss £22bn efficiency savings target', says thinktank | Society | The Guardian
[ nothing is addressed in prevention - mismatch between demand by chronically ill (high cost and returning again and again for treatment) and resources available ] Last October Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, committed the service to plugging £22bn of the expected £30bn gap in its finances by 2020 through productivity gains of 2% or 3% a year between now and 2020. Since then the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have promised to provide the other £8bn by 2020 from government funds, though Labour has refused to do the same. “It’s quite possible that the NHS will miss the £22bn target by quite a long way and therefore require much more than £8bn in additional funding. That’s a realistic possibility”, said Richard Murray, the King’s Fund’s director of policy. //&! bit.ly/1j6Q1q1 &! bit.ly/1QuxC1e - Cuts of £4.6bn to local authority social care press hard on the NHS – with beds blocked by frail people [...] [technically raised budget 4 NHS, but demand is rising!]

South Somerset deploys ‘health coaches’ to take pressure off NHS - FT.com
Chronic conditions make a big share of cost // Underpinning the approach is a careful “segmenting” of patients to discover which are making maximum demands on the system. [...] In South Somerset, it was discovered that just 4 per cent of local people were between them consuming up to 50 per cent of the health and social care budget. High quality global journalism requires investment. Early results among a sample group of 100 patients are striking. Emergency admissions have fallen by 42 per cent, accident and emergency department visits by 4 per cent and outpatient appointments by 15 per cent, year on year, since the establishment of a “hub”, bringing together doctors, nurses and care workers to span the historically iron divide between GP surgery, community and hospital services. [...] “health coaches”. Cheaper than clinicians, and bringing a different skill set, they are seen as key to ensuring patients take responsibility for their own health [...] [mismatch of resources & demand]

I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning.

Department of Health and NHS England have insufficient data on patient outcomes or value for money, and little control over its spiralling budget, committee says [...] “The Department of Health and NHS England do not have the data needed to assess the impact of the fund on patient outcomes, such as extending patients’ lives, or to demonstrate whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money.” The fund was set up in 2010 by the Conservative government because of the regular outcry from patient organisations and the media when cancer drugs, which typically offer potential weeks or months of extra life to those with a terminal diagnosis, were turned down by Nice, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

UK cancer death rates after diagnosis drop 10% in ten years | Society | The Guardian
A greater number of people, however, are being diagnosed with and dying from cancer due to age and lifestyle factors [...] But the growing numbers of people being diagnosed with cancer as the population ages and obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and drinking take their toll, has climbed, which means the actual number of deaths each year has risen over the last decade. Some cancers continue to pose a major problem: the death rates from liver and pancreatic cancer are rising, not falling. [...] regional variations are sometimes shocking. In some areas, people diagnosed with lung cancer are four times more likely to die than in others. That is partly because in some less affluent places, lung cancer caused by smoking is more common and people have more advanced disease when they finally see the GP. But there are also variations in standards of care. [...] [ look at ] Five-year cancer survival rates, % [ if you survive, you are lucky for 5 years. ]

Smoking bans reduce harm from passive smoking, study finds | Society | The Guardian
Evidence of 77 reports from 21 countries finds the general post-ban reduction in heart disease is greatest among non-smokers [...] The Cochrane collaboration, a respected not-for-profit organisation of 14,000 academics, examined 77 studies from 21 countries with smoking bans and found a general reduction in hospital admissions for heart disease. Among the evidence cited was a study showing that heart attack admissions in Liverpool fell by 42% in the first five years of the ban on smoking in enclosed public places and the workplace in England.

PMQs: Corbyn questions PM over cancer test waiting times - BBC News
[ spin, we need strong economy ] Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn questioned David Cameron over waiting times for cancer diagnostic tests and treatment, during Prime Minister's Questions. Mr Corbyn said there was "a serious shortage" of therapeutic radiologists in England and asked why the government was cutting training places by 5%. He also said £200m was being cut from the public health budget [ public services like STI centres, group therapy stopping smoking, alcohol abuse, and obesity help ]. Mr Cameron said the number of radiographers were increasing because of extra investment in the NHS. He added that the UK was hitting many key targets on treatment but had fallen below the target for cancer patients' first treatment to be 62 days after diagnosis. He also told MPs real advances had been made on public health under his government, including banning smoking in cars when children are present. //&! Follow-up - bbc.in/1NQNUhO

NHS: Surging patient numbers - what's happening in A&E? - BBC News
Elderly patients. Heads of emergency departments point out there has not been a sudden new spike in numbers of people coming through their doors. They argue that there has been a steadily increasing trend going back a couple of years. Familiar factors are quoted, including numbers of frail, elderly patients with multiple conditions needing an increasing range of care and treatment. One specialist in geriatric medicine told me more older patients were coming into A&E because of problems with care in their home. This could be because social care was lacking in some way, or because a spouse had become unable to cope. But the surge in hospital attendances was by no means dominated by the over-65s.

The Mexicans dying for a fizzy drink - BBC News
Mexicans consume more carbonated drinks per person than any other nation, and the country has one of the world's highest rates of childhood obesity. Two years ago the government introduced a tax on sugary drinks - but is it working? [...] So what do the big US brands make of Mexico's approach? Hank Cardello of the Obesity Solutions Initiative, an industry-funded lobby group in Washington DC, cracks open a can of diet ginger ale and tells us. "You have to look at ways of expanding the tool kit of solutions," he says. "The typical regulatory tool kit is tax, ban, limit, constrain - those kinds of anti-growth words, if you would. They're anathema to what the companies have to do. "We should ban the word 'should'. It's like a parent talking to a child. 'You should eat better, you should do this.' "No. When broccoli tastes like a cheeseburger, I'll eat more broccoli. You don't lecture to people to get them to change."
