Snacks, fags and booze: Scotland's triple health challenge | Holyrood Magazine
Obesity is linked to 13 types of cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes, with obesity-related illnesses costing Scotland approximately £4.6bn. The annual cost of type 2 diabetes alone to NHS Scotland is £800m.

Obesity is now the second biggest risk factor for cancer after smoking and Cancer Research UK has warned that Scotland is in the grip of an obesity epidemic, with Scots consuming 110 tonnes of sugar a day, fuelled by promotions on unhealthy foods. [...] experts have concluded that only a change in diet can tackle Scotland’s weight problems.

How the humble potato fuelled the rise of liberal capitalism
Enlightened eating

Today’s somewhat uneasy marriage of public health and individual choice is the result of new ideas that emerged during the Enlightenment. During the 18th century, states across Europe began to rethink the bases of national wealth and strength. At the heart of these new ideas was a new appreciation of what we would now call public health. Whereas in earlier centuries rulers wished to prevent famines that might cause public unrest, in the 18th century, politicians became increasingly convinced that national strength and economic prowess required more than an obedient population disinclined to riot.

NHS faces staggering increase in cost of elderly care, academics warn | Society | The Guardian
major new research which shows a 25% increase in those who will need care between 2015 and 2025.

Within eight years, there will be 2.8 million people over 65 needing nursing and social care, unable to cope alone, says the research – largely because of the toll of dementia in a growing elderly population. The research, published by the respected Lancet Public Health medical journal, says cases of disability related to dementia will rise by 40% among people aged 65 to 84, with other forms of disability increasing by about 31%. [...] Immediate investment in improving people’s lifestyles would pay dividends, they say.

'Fat but fit is a big fat myth' - BBC News
[ the thing is, the body is constantly fight - inflamation and immune system, there comes a time in a bodies life when it will give up and cruble under the pressure of ill diet and lifestyle ] They say people who were obese but who had no initial signs of heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol were not protected from ill health in later life, contradicting previous research.
A summary of their study was discussed at the European Congress on Obesity.
The term "fat but fit" refers to the alluring theory that if people are obese but all their other metabolic factors such as blood pressure and blood sugar are within recommended limits then the extra weight will not be harmful. [...] They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight.

Scottish health boards are facing up to budget cuts on a scale never achieved before, and some are proposing savings deemed "high risk".
Figures on cuts planned by Scotland's 14 regional health boards and seven specialist boards showed total savin of £407m to be achieved this year.

This compares with a figure of 4.9% in 2010/11, the first year of the coalition government. This is the basis of Labour's claim of a big increase in privatisation under the Conservatives. Government sources, though, say there was a significant rise in under Labour when private hospitals were first used to help cut waiting lists. Back in 2006/07, the use of private health provision was just 2.8%.

Life-or-death 999 call target missed for year
Crews are meant to reach patients who have had cardiac arrests or are not breathing - so-called Red 1 calls - within eight minutes.
But performance data from NHS England for May showed for the 12th month in a row the 75% target has been missed.
The target for Red 2 calls, for other life-threatening cases such as strokes, has not been met since January 2014.
During May, 70.5% of Red 1 calls were met in eight minutes and for Red 2 calls it was 65%.
NHS England blamed the problem on the rising number of calls - there have been nearly 11m in the past year, an increase of 7% on the previous year.

Council tax rises 'fail to stop care cuts'
[ TAX THE CAUSE! ] Care services are facing cuts this year as rises in council tax have failed to plug the gaps in budgets in England, town hall chiefs are warning.
The government allowed councils to increase council tax by 2% this year to spend on care - and most have done so.
But, according to a survey of all 151 social care directors, there is still a shortfall of nearly £1bn.
The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services said councils had no option but to reduce the services.
Directors in charge of care for older people and adults with disabilities indicated in the annual survey only about half of this shortfall could be met by efficiency savings.

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." //&! - 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.

documents obtained under freedom of information showed a risk of fraudulent activity and cyberattacks. [...] It was finally disclosed this month by the department after a freedom of information request by John Slater, a former IT project manager, and Tony Collins, an investigative journalist, following a four-year legal battle. [...] The documents, which date from 2012, contain a line in which parts of the project are described as “pushing above the programme funding envelope”. They also raise concerns that the programme lacks a “robust framework of assurances”, which means “rework” may be needed if elements of the project are “not fit for purpose”. Fears over staffing are described, with concerns over “skilled staff resources not in the right place at the right time”. [...] “shocking” to see “essential considerations” like fraud and cyber security not being “at the core of [UC]” from the start.

Thousands of NHS nursing and doctor posts lie vacant - BBC News
[ rising demand ] Tens of thousands of NHS nursing and doctor posts are vacant. The figures, obtained by the BBC, show the extent of the NHS recruitment crisis. Health unions blame poor workforce planning, but officials say the NHS has more staff than ever before. Data from a BBC Freedom of Information request shows that on 1 December 2015, the NHS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland had more than 23,443 nursing vacancies. That's equivalent to 9% of the workforce. For comparison, the average vacancy rate across the UK economy from November to January 2016 was 2.7%, according to figures provided by the Office for National Statistics. [...] These figures show that between 2013 and 2015, there has been a 50% increase in nursing vacancies, from 12,513 to 18,714. For doctors, the number of vacancies went from 2,907 to 4,669 over the same period, an increase of roughly 60%

Draft snooper's charter 'fails on spying powers and privacy protections' | World news | The Guardian
Theresa May’s draft “snooper’s charter” bill fails to cover all the intrusive spying powers of the security agencies and lacks clarity in its privacy protections, a parliamentary committee has said. The intelligence and security committee said the draft legislation published by the home secretary suffered from a lack of sufficient time and preparation. It was evident that even those working on the legislation had not always been clear about what it was intended to achieve, it said.

NSA's Hacker-in-Chief: We Don't Need Zero-Days To Get Inside Your Network | Motherboard
“I think a lot of people think the nation states are running on this engine of zero-days. You go out with your skeleton key and unlock the door and you're in. It's not that,” he said. “I will tell you that persistence and focus will get you in, will achieve that exploitation without the zero-days,” he continued “There's so many more vectors that are easier, less risky and quite often more productive than going down that route.”

Balloon 'last chance treatment' for heart failure - BBC News
Mr Reach, a builder from Kent, suffered severe heart failure after a heart attack - leaving him extremely unwell and short of breath. The damage to his heart meant one of his heart valves no longer worked properly, creating a backflow of blood and putting extra strain on his heart. But when conventional treatment was deemed too high a risk, doctors decided to ask UK regulators for permission to try the new Mitra-Spacer device on compassionate grounds. Made in the United States, by company Cardiosolutions, it had previously been tested only in pigs. Mr Reach had the device implanted in June 2015 and was allowed home just a few days later.

Will Self: the NHS is a power that can jolt even the most despairing back to life | Society | The Guardian
I’ve thought about the politics, sociology and culture of healthcare in this country a great deal, and long since reached the conclusion that there’s a sort of Malthusian gap ever widening between our desire for more and better treatments and the NHS’s capability to deliver them all, free and on demand. We’re suckers for medical science’s promise of yet more heroic − nay, Frankensteinian − interventions. Good materialists that we’ve become, we have faith that at some point in the not-too-distant future our marvellous doctors, nurses and support staff will be able to palliate − if not cure − just about everything. This is the ultimate redistribution − one of mortality itself – and it’s come to occupy the psychic space that other redistributive concepts, such as socialism, once held. [...] an inability to look after ourselves any more.

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.

Gesundheit in Deutschland: Bericht Robert Koch-Institut - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir werden immer älter und sterben seltener an Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt ein Bericht zur Gesundheit der Deutschen. Sorgen machen Experten zu niedrige Impfquoten, resistente Keime und Diabetes. [...] Zudem sterben die Menschen hierzulande seltener an Erkrankungen des Herzens, etwa Herzinfarkten, und Schlaganfällen als noch vor 20 Jahren. Verantwortlich dafür macht das RKI Fortschritte in der Therapie und eine bessere medizinische Versorgung und Vorsorge. Trotzdem bleiben Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen mit einem Anteil von knapp 40 Prozent die häufigste Todesursache. Krebserkrankungen stehen an zweiter Stelle. Sie sind laut Bericht für einen Viertel (25 Prozent) der Todesfälle in Deutschland verantwortlich. Während insgesamt mehr Menschen an Krebs erkranken (weil es mehr ältere gibt), sinkt die Sterblichkeitsrate bei den meisten Krebsarten. Das RKI führt das auf bessere Therapien und Fortschritte bei der Früherkennung zurück.

Comedian Bob Mortimer has triple heart bypass operation - BBC News
[ CAN MAKE FUN OF BBC's "What is a triple heart bypass? [...] more common in smokers and obese people" ... he isn't even that fat, he isn't lean either. But as his buddy said at least he got "got fixed". AKA the bandaid. Heart disease is still happening with what he eats ...& he is also a confessed smoker. 1/3rd of all heart disease-related deaths are attributed to smoking. He is 56. A person of his age with a poverty background probably did not really want to go to the hospital for the chest pain because he feared for his job/income to pay the bills & would have dropped eventually dead, literally, at work or on way to work. QUESTION IS, is he so smart & self-aware/introspective to change his ways? AFTER A TRIPLE BYPASS! saw open chest, take veins from thigh, re] Bob Mortimer [undergone] a triple heart bypass operation.

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. //&! - the NHS adapting to changed demands. highlights areas where not much progress has been made towards the vision.

Heart attack test 'cuts hospital stays' - BBC News
The British Heart Foundation said the test would produce faster answers without affecting patient safety. About one million people attend A&E departments in the UK with chest pain, only for most of them to be sent home after a sometimes lengthy and anxious stay. They have levels of troponin, a chemical released by damaged heart muscle, tested when they are admitted and again 12 hours later. The new test also looks for troponin, but can detect much lower levels and needs to be done only once. So those given the all-clear can go straight home.
