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 Health Check: Short GP consultations crazy, say GPs - BBC News
Average consultation length is 10 minutes in the UK - thought to be the shortest in the developed world.
GP leaders said this was already too short and the extra workload from the hospital closures proposed by local leaders would destabilise care.
The proposals are being made by local health leaders to "modernise" the NHS.
There are 44 plans in England - many of which involve reducing hospital care and pushing more services into the community to save money and make the NHS more efficient. Similar measures are being taken in the rest of the UK. [...] The RCGP and BMA said they would result in even more complex cases being passed on to GPs once they start being introduced later this year.

Deutsche Bank Loves Helicopter Money: Why "Big Inflation Is Coming... But Will First Require A Crisis"
[NEED FOR CHANGE OF WIND - deflationary pressures ] Europe is another story. Germany must let their southern neighbors cheat on deficits and bank recapitalizations. “Spanish election showed if you let them cheat and growth surprises positively then extremists don’t do so well. Europe can only survive as an inflation zone. Will it be formally tolerated? Probably not. Will governments cheat anyway with ECB support?” Probably.

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

NHS finance chiefs warn of poorer care and longer waiting times | Society | The Guardian
NHS finance managers warn today that patients are set to experience poorer care, longer waiting times for treatment and greater rationing.

A grim outlook for the NHS’s finances is also likely to see many hospitals fail to make savings that ministers have said are vital and put plans for the service to reform how it operates in serious doubt.

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"

NHS in £2.4bn funding boost for GP services in England
NHS chiefs in England have announced a five-year plan to help GP surgeries "get back on their feet" and to improve access for patients. The rescue package will see an extra £2.4bn a year ploughed into services by 2020 - a rise of 14% once inflation is taken into account. It will pay for 5,000 more GPs and extra staff to boost practices. [...] It means more than 10% of health spending will go on GP care - up from just over 8% currently.

Study: Heart attack patients getting younger, fatter
Despite greater awareness of risk factors for heart disease and the need for healthy lifestyle changes, heart attack patients are becoming younger and more obese, according to new research from the Cleveland Clinic. // Google Info Box - The risk of heart attack increases steadily for men after age 45, and the average age of a man having his first heart attack is about 66. About 565,000 men are expected to suffer a heart attack in 2009. Nearly half of those younger than 65 years old who have a heart attack will die within eight years. (7 Dec 2012) // nbcnews.to/1obb39f

Three GP surgeries have banned patients from booking advance time slots. The 21,000 patients at Swindon surgeries now face scramble at 8.30am. Rule is necessary because of increase in demand and shortage of doctors. Patients at the three surgeries have branded the new system a 'nightmare'. [...] ‘There is a national shortage of GPs and Swindon is not immune to this.
‘These appointments are valuable and to try to avoid wastage, at a time when we are so short of staff, we are asking patients to call and book on the day they need to be seen.
‘This is for a trial period only and if successful will remain as part of our policy.’ It also pleaded with its patients, around 15 per cent of whom are over 65, to use other sources of information, such as the 111 non-emergency line, pharmacies, and NHS websites.

"brave" ...normalisation of cancer. 'was death sentence, now life extension' // BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire has finished the chemotherapy stage of her breast cancer treatment. In it, she describes her emotional reaction to the end of her final cycle.

Derbyshire has been filming diaries since she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of July last year, to try to help demystify the treatment.

Here, two women who were also diagnosed with the condition in 2015 explain how the diaries have helped them, and they were joined by Baroness Delyth Morgan from the charity, Breast Cancer Now.

NHS child mental health money 'missing' despite investment - BBC News
[ demand resource mismatch, chronic sick population siphoning off funds more and more ] Last summer ministers said they would invest an additional £143m in the services this financial year. The Mental Health Network suspects the funding has been used to support other NHS services. [...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line. We are not hearing any reports of any significant investment at a local level around children's services. Indeed, some services are still experiencing cuts in services."

Krankenkassen machen 2015 Milliardendefizit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Noch zehren die gesetzlichen Krankenversicherungen von ihrem dicken Finanzpolster: Ihre Gesamtreserve betrug zum Jahreswechsel 24,5 Milliarden Euro. Dazu gehört die Reserve des Gesundheitsfonds, die sich Ende 2015 auf zehn Milliarden Euro belief. Allerdings sind die Kassen verpflichtet, Rücklagen zu bilden. Aus dem Fonds, in den Beitragsgelder und Steuerzuschüsse fließen, erhalten sie nur Zuweisungen nach festen Kriterien. Anfang 2016 haben zwei von drei Krankenkassen die Beiträge erhöht. Als Grund für die steigenden Beiträge gelten höhere Ausgaben für Arzneimittel, Ärzte und Kliniken sowie hohe Kosten durch Reformen im Gesundheitswesen.

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 //&!

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.

Whatever happened to the obesity strategy? - BBC News
There is speculation now that it may not be published before Easter. The simple reason is the prime minister's overcrowded diary and his current preoccupation with Europe. David Cameron knows the clock is ticking down to the end of his premiership before the next election. He wants to make his mark on domestic policy and he has identified tackling obesity as an important potential part of his legacy. It is seen at Number Ten as a priority second term issue, to rank with the dementia initiative in his first term of office. Much of the groundwork has already been done by the Department of Health and Public Health England. [...] Mr Cameron's anti-red tape and pro-business leanings might steer him away from such an approach and towards a voluntary deal agreed with the supermarkets. But officials and experts will make the case for government intervention.

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. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

Government has no idea about Cancer Drugs Fund's impact, MPs say | Society | The Guardian
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.

Aneurysm screening 'helps thousands' - BBC News
[ its like cancer, early detection you know, not prevention. but doesn't say being on operating table can also have side effects/complications ie death. more risk with more heart disease and age. ] Simple ultrasound scans have helped detect more than 10,000 aneurysms - potentially serious blood vessel swellings - since a now UK-wide screening programme started in 2009. If left untreated larger abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) - where the main blood vessel in the body weakens and expands - can be deadly. But because many do not have symptoms, people may be unaware they have an AAA until they fatally burst. A million men have been screened. [...] Public Health England says after 10 years of screening, half of all ruptures should be prevented, saving an estimated 1,500-2,000 lives a year - though the data to support this is not yet available.

NHS in Scotland facing 'pressure', doctors warn - BBC News
The NHS in Scotland will face "significantly more pressure" in the coming year despite a budget increase, the doctors' leaders have warned. The British Medical Association claimed that "constrained resources" meant the health service was struggling to cope with increasing demands. BMA Scotland chairman Peter Bennie also said the number of jobs lying vacant could have a "detrimental impact". The Scottish government said it had a "clear vision for the future". [...] "The funding gap faced by the NHS set against rising demand and the impact of increasing consultant, specialty doctor and GP vacancies and unfilled trainee posts cannot be ignored, and we must establish ways to make Scotland's NHS a more attractive place to work. [...] NHS will face significantly more pressure as Scotland's population continues to age." [...] [Shona Robinson] ensuring our NHS is sustainable for future generations.

Chancellor urged not to cut vital health fund - BBC News
George "Mr Judgement Call" Osborne // Vital health services in England including stop smoking, obesity and sexual health clinics are at risk, experts are warning. Earlier this year the Chancellor unveiled plans to cut the £2.8bn public health budget by £200m from January. The pot is held by councils so is not covered by the government's promise to protect the health service. But doctors, nurses and other senior health officials say the money is vital to relieving pressure on the wider NHS. A total of 11 groups, including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal College of Nursing, NHS Confederation and Faculty of Public Health, have put their names to a letter to George Osborne asking him to reconsider the plans. The letter warned raiding the funds would simply cause greater ill-health and inequality in the population. [...] [PREVENTION>>] [deal with Osborne for 8bn extra a year this Parliament] included making gains from improvements in people's health. [Cut now, pay more later!]

Audit Scotland says NHS needs 'fundamental change' - BBC News
[ REPORT DOES NOT MENTION PREVENTION AS MEASURE! ] Fundamental change is needed now if the NHS in Scotland is to cope with demand, according to the financial watchdog Audit Scotland. [...] The report also says that the health budget as a whole has decreased slightly since 2008/9 by 0.7% once inflation and capital spending is taken into account. Health boards - which are responsible for most frontline services - received a slight increase of 1%, but not enough to keep pace with cost pressures. The cost of drugs alone rose by 4% and is expected to rise by 5-16% in future. [...] Dr Peter Bennie, chairman of the British Medical Association Scotland, said: "The overriding message that must get through from this report is that substantive and realistic action is needed if our health service is to cope with the rapidly increasing pressures it is facing. //&! bbc.in/1PGQddr - the NHS adapting to changed demands. highlights areas where not much progress has been made towards the vision.

Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen.

The blame for distorting our view of women doesn’t lie just with advertisers | Lucy Mangan | Comment is free | The Guardian
If we objected strongly enough to warped views of female bodies, women would take our custom elsewhere. But we keep buying the brands that offend us [...] But the lack of change in this area suggests consumers are not changing their spending habits. And as most of the consumers of the brands and products these advertisers are selling to are women purporting to hate this kind of thing, we have a conundrum: why are we still doing this? Why aren’t we putting our money where our mouths are? And then, obviously, in further solidarity taking our mouths off for a pizza somewhere? [...] Asking, or compelling by legislation, advertisers to do this runs counter to almost every prevailing ideology and trend. It asks that moneymaking ventures act for the greater good instead of the bottom line. It asks government to chip away at a cornerstone of the free market. It conceptualises women as hapless victims of intangible forces.

More maternity units closing doors, union warns - BBC News
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said a shortage of midwives was having a major impact and mistakes would "almost certainly be made". Some 42% of units shut down temporarily in the past year, its survey found. The government said it was determined to ensure "every mother and baby gets the highest quality care". A poll of 83 heads of midwifery at NHS trusts found there had been a rise in the number of units that had closed their doors, with 33% having closed the previous year. The RCM said budget cuts were also affecting services, with midwives struggling to cope with a rising birth rate and increasingly complex births. [...] But he added that rising numbers of complex pregnancies were also putting pressure on other UK countries. [...] The RCM says there is a shortage of 2,600 full-time midwives.

NHS could be 'overwhelmed' by people with long-term medical conditions | Society | The Guardian
The soaring number of people with long-term medical conditions [chronic] is threatening to "overwhelm" the NHS [...] The challenges posed by patients with chronic medical conditions are so great that they represent the "healthcare equivalent to climate change" and must force the NHS to undertake a major rethink of how it cares for such patients, Dr Martin McShane says in an interview with the Guardian. [...] 70% of the NHS's £110bn budget – £77bn – as well as £10.9bn of the £15.5bn spent on social care in England, [...] NHS will not bridge the £30bn gap that it fears will have emerged by 2020 between its budget and the volume of care needed [...] a healthy patient costs the NHS about £288 a year, those with one long-term condition cost an estimated £783, those with two cost £1,521 // [More doesnt stop sink overflowing! stop the faucet of new chronically sick people.

Study gives strongest link yet between blood pressure and diabetes | Society | The Guardian
People who have high blood pressure are almost 60% more likely to develop diabetes, according to research on 4.1 million people. The Oxford University study provides the strongest evidence yet of a link between the two conditions. Experts behind the study said more research was needed to see whether using drugs to lower blood pressure would help prevent people developing type 2 diabetes. [ ... stupid, high blood pressure is first thing body gives up (pre-cursor, first thing that gives, arterial function because shit gets clogged up via oil and animal protein, animal products)), next pancreas, are ppl w high blood pressure pre-diabetic and or have already signs of insulin resistance?! again example of looking not at the patient but the symptom/one detail by its own ... ] High blood pressure was linked with new cases of diabetes in a wide range of individuals, including men and women, people of varying ages, as well as those who were normal weight (TOFI!!!), overweight and obese.

Top doctor: social inequality in UK costing 550 lives every day | Society | The Guardian
“social gradient” emerging in Britain. [...] However, it was in the field of education where Marmot said the research vividly showed how unfair life was becoming. “If everybody had the same mortality of those with a university education, then [each year] we could prevent 202,000 premature deaths.” [...] In his new book, The Health Gap, he argues that those who blame lifestyles miss the point. “Over 30 years, smoking levels have declined while obesity has soared. Have we become more responsible when it comes to smoking and less responsible when it comes to obesity. No.” [...] There is little doubt that inequality has become a feature of British life. Since 1980, the share of total income received by the top one per cent of Britain has almost doubled, to about 13% in 2011, reversing a three-decades-long trend towards greater equality. [...] “austerity agenda” had cut 5% from GDP [according to OBR].

China's impossible trinity - BBC News
At the heart of China's problem is the "impossible trinity" of international macroeconomics. The impossible trinity - or trilemma - is the idea that it is impossible for a country to have three things at the same time: a stable currency, the free movement of capital (i.e. the absence of capital controls) and independent monetary policy. A country can instead choose just two of the options from this policy suite. The UK, in common with most developed economies, has free capital movement and an independent monetary policy - but not a controlled exchange rate. The Bank of England sets interest rates at a level it thinks is right for the UK economy and - as capital can flow into and out of the UK at will - the exchange rate is determined by the market. [...] But the bigger criticism is usually over the nature of the post-2009 stimulus package [...] But, for all the criticism, the counterfactual is rarely stated. What would global growth have looked like without it? [//+ deflation factors]

Wandel der Trinkgewohnheiten - The European
Krankenhauseinweisungen wegen Alkoholvergiftung gehen kontinuierlich zurück, immer mehr Jugendliche trinken gar keinen Alkohol oder trinken bewusst maßvoll. „Komasaufen“ ist nicht mehr cool, stattdessen chillen die Kids heute mit angesagten Trendgetränken – ohne Alkohol. Eine Lebenseinstellung, auch gegen das Gewohnte. Jugendliche wollen sich abgrenzen, wollen anders sein als ihre Eltern und Großeltern. Die heutige Jugend schafft das bravourös. Sie entwickelt sich immer mehr zu guten Vorbildern. [...] Das Umdenken beginnt im Kopf! Und die Umsetzung erfolgt in der Gesellschaft. Alkoholfrei zu Trinken ist inzwischen keine „Notlösung“ mehr sondern modern. Diesen Trend hat die Industrie erkannt und agiert geschickt.

Obesity is an incurable disease. So why is the government intent on punishing sufferers? | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
Fat-shaming is worse than useless. David Cameron points his finger at the afflicted, but food manufacturers and advertisers are the real culprits. s overeating more addictive than crack cocaine? It’s hard to compare addiction rates, or to produce a clear definition that holds true across all substances and behaviours. But consider this crude contrast: of people who use crack cocaine, 10%-20% become addicted to it; across a nine-year study of 176,000 obese people, 98.3% of the men and 97.8% of the women failed to return to a healthy weight. Once extreme overeating begins, it appears to be almost impossible to stop. [...] seek out a range of highly palatable, energy-dense foods, of the kind with which we are now surrounded.
