Jeremy Hunt's GP recruitment pledge in tatters as 1,000 full-time NHS doctors quit last year | The Independent
Despite £20,000 incentives to attract trainees and attempts to hold on to senior staff, the NHS is now 1,200 GPs further away from its target of recruiting an extra 5,000 GPs by 2020 than when it was first set by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt in September 2015.

The Department of Health baseline at that time was 34,592 full-time GPs, but two years on the September 2017 figures show overall numbers stand at 33,302. &! https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4969314/nhs-workforce-crisis-sees-1600-gps-quit-since-since-health-bosses-pledged-to-tackle-shortages/

Doctors forced to plead with NHS for treatments for patients, BMJ finds | Society | The Guardian
Growing healthcare rationing means GPs are having to submit exceptional requests for treatments including cataract removals and new hips and knees // &! When care is not being funded on the NHS, doctors can use the the exceptional cases system to appeal to local health bosses to get the treatment for their patients.
It is normally associated with new drugs not yet available on the NHS, to pay for expensive treatments in unusual circumstances or to get care that there are legitimate restrictions on, such as cosmetic surgery.
But the BMJ has gathered evidence from clinical commissioning groups which shows the special requests are increasingly being used for vital non-emergency services. - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-40485724

NHS in crisis as cancer operations cancelled due to lack of beds | Society | The Guardian
Kerslake says that increasing demand and advances in healthcare mean the NHS needs additional funding year on year of around 4% above inflation to maintain service levels. According to calculations by Professor John Appleby, chief economist at the Nuffield Trust health thinktank, this would mean the NHS receiving £5bn more in real terms next year. Its budget would then be £128.6bn. [...] A more sustainable approach to funding our health and social care services is urgently needed.”

That it has also “disregarded its own risk assessment’s warnings about the lack of staffing and funding needed to deliver further seven-day services, is both alarming and incredibly disappointing”, he added.

Hospital doctors ‘miss signs of illness’ because of chronic staff shortages | Society | The Guardian
Professor Jane Dacre, president of the Royal College of Physicians, said: “Patient care is being compromised by gaps in trainee rotas. This is a major challenge for the NHS and it is having a detrimental effect on the morale of both trainees and consultants. We need more doctors.”

One medic said that hospitals’ growing inability to have a full complement of doctors on duty meant “we don’t have time to review patients properly. [I am] constantly fighting fires as covering three people’s jobs, so never have time to think about a patient properly.”

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.

GP appointment waiting times crisis revealed in Labour research
Research finds 14.2m patients waited a week to see their doctor or did not manage to get an appointment at all in 2015 [...] Many of the UK’s 9,770 GP surgeries are struggling to cope with a growing and ageing population and as pressures have risen, the number of GPs has not kept pace, with an increasing number opting for early retirement. That has coincided with a failure to attract enough graduate medics into choosing general practice as a career.

Labour, which conducted the research, said constituents have desperately sought their help to get a GP appointment. The revelation in December that patients were having to queue in the dark from 6.30am outside their surgery in Surrey helped to highlight the problem.

Testing times ahead for Universal Credit
[ in real terms cuts through the back door. spin doctor and positioning ] Universal Credit was meant to bring "radical changes" to people's real incomes and incentivise them to move off benefits and into work, according to David Finch, a former economic analyst at the DWP.
"But... the strength of the improved incentives it was meant to bring have been gradually eroded," he says, speaking in his current role as a researcher at the Resolution Foundation.
There have been significant tensions between the Treasury and the DWP over its cost.
Last year the government announced funding cuts to the universal credit "work allowance" - reducing the amount people can earn before benefit payments are withdrawn.

Is Stephen Crabb the man to tackle this age of extreme inequality?
The Panama Papers will lead to the dynamiting of Tory credibility, but new work and pensions secretary, Stephen Crabb, is unlikely to prove the saviour of his party’s reputation. [...] Last autumn’s U-turn over cuts to working tax credits was a smoke screen. The axe will fall, only not everywhere, not just yet. From this week, existing universal credit claimants will lose up to £220 a month as the work allowance is pared back faster than the national living wage increases to replace it. [...] Short of taking a vow of poverty and retreating like Charles V to a monastery, there is nothing he can say now that will change the perception that he is at the head of a party that has a fundamental personal interest in preserving the advantages of the 1%.

ACTION NEEDED TO MAINTAIN NHS SCOTLAND SERVICES, REPORT WARNS
NHS Scotland will not be able to provide the same level of service in the future unless urgent action is taken to alleviate the pressures it faces, according to a new report. The health service is struggling with tightening budgets, rising costs, higher demand for services, pressure to meet targets and increased staff vacancies, Audit Scotland said. It warned the Scottish Government has not made sufficient progress towards its 2020 vision to change the balance of healthcare to more community-based settings. [...] Boards spent £284 million on temporary staff in 2014/15, an increase of 15% from the previous financial year.

The number of agency nursing and midwifery staff increased by 53% while s pending on locum doctors increased by 22%.

George Osborne: A profile of the man behind the Budget - BBC Newsnight
// 70% of UK economy growth (GDP), 2015, was consumption. // and trade deficit/current account deficit for 2015, biggest ever on record ---- The UK's current account deficit widened to a record high in the final quarter of last year.
The deficit in the three months to December was £32.7bn, the equivalent of 7% of GDP, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
For all of 2015, it came to £96.2bn or 5.2% of GDP. Both figures were the highest since records began in 1948.
A current account deficit means the value of imports of goods, services and investment income exceeds exports.[...] "An obvious potential trigger for the markets losing confidence in the UK economy could be a vote to leave the EU in the 23 June referendum."

Hey Britain – Your Kids Have Just Been Privatised
"Thatcher said the problem with socialism is that you run out of other people money. Henry VIII will tell you the problem with crony capitalism is you eventually run out of other people’s assets to sell." [...] In George Osborne’s mercurial March 2016 budget he showed his own Machiavellian sleight of hand. He is now seen as a politician whose leadership ambitions come before the welfare of the British people. Osborne’s allegiance is to The City not the country. When he and Peter Mandelson holidayed on financier Nat Rothschild’s yacht do you think they talked about free school meals and increasing the economic opportunities of the people in Grimsby? [...] Look at his actions and we see that one of Osborne’s aims is to reinstate the class divisions that began to ebb away with socially progressive policies. This last budget sought to weave a line into the fabric of society between the haves and have-nots. [...] We are at the end of the debt cycle and there’s nowhere else to go. [...] This is not the budget for the next generation of young people. This is the budget for the next generation of rent-seekers, moneymen and crony capitalists.

The spending climbdown was announced on Monday by Stephen Crabb, the new work and pensions secretary, an hour after Cameron addressed the political crisis engulfing the Conservative party by offering his support to George Osborne and praise for the work of Duncan Smith. [...] but the Treasury clarified the remarks by stressing that there were no plans to fill the £4.4bn gap caused by dropping PIP reforms with further cuts in welfare spending. &! bbc.in/1S10VIg

Lords rebuff Tory plan to cut ESA for second time | Politics | The Guardian
[ trying to redefine who deserves something for nothing, and disability ] Peers defeat government again over proposed £30-a-week cut to benefits for ill and disabled found ‘unfit to work.’ The House of Lords has defeated the government again over welfare reform and work bill proposals to cut £30 a week from the benefits of ill and disabled people who have been found unfit to work. Peers passed an amendment that calls on ministers to deliver a formal assessment of the likely impact of the cut on the health, finances and work prospects of hundreds of thousands of claimants, who will see their unemployment benefits reduced by £1,500 a year. [...] there is no evidence that the proposed cut would help ESA Wrag recipients get back into employment, while campaigners say the cut will push claimants further into poverty.

British people think their media is the most biased and right-wing in Europe - and they're probably right | Voices | The Independent
Just two individuals - Rupert Murdoch and Lord Rothermere - controlled a staggering 52.2 per cent of online and print national news publications in the UK in 2013 [...] All of these newspapers either backed the Conservatives or Ukip in the most recent election and are all considered traditional right-wing publications. If you add up the readership of these right-wing newspapers, they account for a staggering 69 per cent of national newspaper readership in Britain in 2013. Left Foot Forward concluded their analysis by stating that “over three quarters (77.8 per cent) of the press is owned by a handful of billionaires.”

Hunt 'misrepresented' data on 7-day NHS - BBC News
The Labour leader attacked Jeremy Hunt after the BBC revealed the health secretary used academically unverified and unpublished data to back his plans. Last July, in the pay row with junior doctors, Mr Hunt said there were about 6,000 deaths a year because of the lack of "a proper seven-day service". But this assertion was later questioned by academics. Emails show one of the author's of the unpublished paper, which Mr Hunt was using to justify the 6,000 figure, was unhappy with how his study was being used. [...] This figure was then used regularly by the government in its argument for changes to doctors' contracts. [ they needed it to justify back-door cutbacks to NHS budget.

Bei einer Umfrage der Bertelsmann-Stiftung sprachen sich vier von fünf Unternehmenschefs für einen Verbleib in der EU aus.

[#misrepresentation - FOI request to HMRC - job creation, ask for list of annual salary 2009 - till now - picture emerges of mostly low pay jobs. with more and more job qualifying for tax credits. ask also for numbers of tax credits during the "recovery" and also income based job seeker allowance, people just working 16hrs or less. - also housing benefit. / also the numbers and incomes for self-employed and their income development during the recovery, do they grow their income? or do they make ends meet? ] The best example of this is when looking at the growth of federal income and employment tax withholdings, the broadest and most timely read on the health of the job market, which as Jed Graham writes, "has been sinking at an alarming rate." While for most of 2015, tax withholdings rose at a rate of 5% or more from a year ago, on the back of job growth and gains in wages, commissions and other incentive pay, in recent months there has been a substantial dropoff in this key indicator.

Greg Hands urged to return from break for fiscal framework talks - BBC News
A Treasury spokeswoman earlier insisted Mr Hands would return "at any time" if the Scottish government was "willing to make a substantial move". [...] Despite months of talks, the UK and Scottish governments have been unable to reach a deal on the fiscal framework for the bill. The parties disagree on their interpretation of the "no detriment" principle laid out by the Smith Commission on new powers for Scotland, which stipulates that neither the UK or the Scottish budgets should be left worse off by a deal.
