Not enough doctors for 7-day NHS, says Royal College head - BBC News
There are not enough doctors to run a seven-day NHS in England, according to a leading doctor.
In a speech on Tuesday, Royal College of Physicians president Prof Jane Dacre will warn ministers the issue must be addressed if their policy is to work.
She will highlight research that shows vacant posts are not being filled and gaps in rotas are being seen.
It comes as ministers are locked in a dispute with junior doctors over their plans for improving weekend care.

Secondary school places for all 'undeliverable', councils warn - BBC News
[ planning taken out of hands of councils ] [ first the teachers strike (2014), then the doctors strike (2015/2016) - bit.ly/1T3QTfc ] The legal duty of councils in England to ensure that every child has a school place could soon become undeliverable, local authorities have warned. With a population bulge about to hit secondary schools, councils want powers to open new maintained schools and to compel academies to expand. Thousands of children are due to hear on Tuesday which secondary school they will attend from September. However the government says the warning amounts to "scaremongering". The population bulge which has put primary schools under pressure will start hitting secondary schools this year, according to official figures. Last year councils had to provide 2,740,000 secondary school places, but this will rise to 3,287,000 by 2024, the figures predict.

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%

Mental health care 'failing most people' - BBC News
Inadequate and underfunded mental health care in England is leading to thousands of "tragic and unnecessary deaths" [...] around three-quarters of people with mental health problems received no help at all. It said more needs to be done to tackle rising suicide rates. Ministers agreed with the findings, committing a £1bn extra a year by 2020 to treat a million more people. This is to come out of the £8.4bn the government has promised to the health service during this Parliament and comes on top of extra money already announced for children's services. David Cameron said the plan would help put "mental and physical healthcare on an equal footing". [ would help on the way, but not actually putting it, no targets, nothing to be held accountable to. this is piecemeal, satisfying the headlines, appearing to do something. is minority service. easier to under fund than cancer or neuro. demand resource mismatch @those ] //&! bbc.in/1QgiJxX

NHS mental health funding falls in England - FoI figures - BBC News
[ minority of patients. Can't do that with cancer treatment! Public sentiment would rip you apart. ] Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request showed the budgets for mental health trusts fell by 2% from 2013/14 to 2014/15. This compares to a rise of 2.6% in hospital trusts' operating budgets, according to analysis by the Health Foundation think-tank. The Department of Health said mental health care funding overall was rising. In the year to April 2016 the budget for mental health trusts was projected to rise just 0.3%. Of the 53 out of 59 mental health trusts in England which responded to the FOI request, 29 said their budget would be lower this year than last. [...] funding is not keeping pace - and many are facing cuts. [...] In Scotland, mental health spending was up just 0.1% last year, and down a projected 0.4% this 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!]

Jeremy Hunt makes the wrong diagnosis - Jason Beattie - Mirror Online
Jeremy Hunt claims the new terms are necessary if the government is to deliver its ambition of a 7-day NHS. But there is a deeper issue of why Mr Hunt is pressing ahead with these reforms when there is a the far bigger crisis facing the health service - the dire state of social care. To put it another way: why is the Health Secretary trying to build an extension when the main house is in danger of collapsing? In the last parliament the Coalition government cut social care by more than £3billion despite warnings it would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS as elderly patients require treatment which could have been prevented if they had been cared for at home. The NHS is now suffering from the consequences of those cuts.

And yet it continues. "The answers lie not in just providing more beds, although there are definitely places where that might help in the short term, but assessing the entire system." The report, led by former chief executive of NHS England, Lord Nigel Crisp, said access to acute care for severely ill adult mental health patients was inadequate nationally and, in some cases, potentially dangerous.

Shock figures show patients stuck in north hospitals for more than a year despite being fit to leave - Press and Journal
Shock new figures show eight patients across NHS Highland and NHS Grampian were kept in hospital for more than a year, despite doctors giving the green light for them to be discharged. Another 20 patients at the two health boards were left in limbo for more than six months. Last night Health Secretary Shona Robison admitted there was “much more to do” to tackle the so-called bed blocking, which costs the NHS millions of pounds each year. [...] These patients were all classified as so-called ‘Code 9′ patients – meaning they require specialist support, such as space in a care home, before they are able to return to the community. [...] “The availability of suitable facilities to safely accommodate those of our patients with the most complex conditions is limited, [...] unable to dedicate enough staff.

Aberdeen and Edinburgh highlighted in city economies report - BBC News
No Scottish cities were in the top 10 for "low-wage, high-welfare" economies. The 2016 report - described as a "health check" for the 63 largest UK cities - focused on Chancellor George Osborne's vow to build a "higher wage, lower welfare" economy, as set out in the Summer Budget 2015. >> It argued that nearly a million new jobs had been created in cities since 2010 - but that the average salary had also dropped by £1,300 per resident. 'High-wage, low-welfare' << [...] The think tank said the two areas' ability to attract high-skilled jobs - in the oil and professional services industries for example - was the key to their success.

On call in Shetland: a cliff-hanging GP at the NHS's northern limits | Society | The Guardian
ut Bowie is nervous about the future of her practice. She will retire soon and has no clear idea what will happen when she does, particularly to her out-of-hours service – a voluntary part of her work. There is a chronic shortage of new family doctors across the UK. Scotland, where a third of all GPs plan to retire in the next five years, is no exception. The Royal College of General Practitioners estimates between 563 and 915 new family doctors may be needed by 2020. Shetland alone has five GP vacancies.

10 truths about Britain's health service | Society | The Guardian
The NHS is facing a remarkable surge in numbers of people with mental illness – at the same time as multimillion-pound government cuts in services. In 2014 there were 57.1m prescriptions issued for antidepressants in England – an increase of more than 100% over 10 years. One in five young people experience anxiety or depression. But the government has been accused of cutting £80m from mental health services over the past five years.

The UK must invest in mental health help | Letters | Society | The Guardian
the cost of mental ill health in England has been estimated to be £105bn per year. Fortunately, a number of evidence-based psychological therapies exist and are effective. Investment in psychological therapies to date has been a success, but it is a success that could be multiplied. The improving access to psychological therapies programme is only funded to reach “at least 15%” of the people who need it, and retention and recovery rates could be improved. [...] &! Osborne said that the ILF was “such an important fund … that we will be able to include it in the budgets going forwards”. Reality is not living up to the rhetoric. [ 7-day NHS? ]

Edinburgh council 'optimistic' of no compulsory redundancies - BBC News
Edinburgh council leaders are "cautiously optimistic" they can shed 2,000 jobs in 12 months without the need for compulsory redundancies. The city's Labour/SNP coalition has identified £85m worth of savings to balance next year's budget. The proposals, which include selling off property as well as job cuts, will go before councillors next week. [...] The council admitted the cuts would damage services but insisted its priority was to protect the most vulnerable. [...] "We need to take action in order to achieve the necessary savings to meet this demand, and we are making every effort to do this in a way that will safeguard frontline services for the people of Edinburgh. "We want to invest in the services that are important to the public but must also look to rationalise our spending where appropriate."

Why should Rachel Watt have to sleep in her wheelchair? | Frances Ryan | Opinion | The Guardian
This is the hidden face of Britain’s social care crisis: disabled people left without help in their own homes. Read most coverage of the cuts to social care and it is easy to believe the crisis solely affects older people. According to research by Scope, 83% of disabled people in this country are now living without sufficient hours in their care package. That means being unable to get out of the house or waiting 14 hours to go to the toilet. This is what happens when austerity strips £4.6bn from social care spending in five years. As the government squeezes local authorities, social care has been left with a “funding gap” – a gaping wound, shall we say – that is growing by £700m a year. The King’s Fund thinktank has told the Guardian that the financial prospects for Britain’s social care system in 2016 “could not be worse”. [...] The biggest trick the government can play is the myth that any of this is inevitable. [...] It is the political choice[.]

My fear is that Addenbrooke's is just the beginning
Whilst our ageing population creates an underlying pressure on hospitals across the country, the failure of Conservative ministers to plan the NHS workforce and properly fund social care is at the heart of the problem.  A key contributor to the ‘inadequate’ rating given to Addenbrookes was understaffing, particularly in the maternity and A&E services. The CQC is clear that the staff working at the hospital did everything they could for the patients in their care. The problem was that there simply weren't enough of them. [...] The Royal College of Nursing estimate that hospitals spent almost £1 billion on agency nurses alone last year – it’s no wonder hospital finances are in such a dire position. [ Osborne cut spending (when came to power in libdem coalition 2010) on training! stupid, he put the NHS/Hospitals in that position! experts say it won't be fixed for years. pipeline issue was created by Tories! ]

Leere Sozialkassen: Letzte Chance Sparschock - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Dabei ist heute klarer denn je: Das deutsche Sozialsystem steht in seiner bisherigen Form auf der Kippe - und muss dringend reformiert werden. "Schon in diesem Jahr kommt auf jeden Erwerbstätigen ein Empfänger von Sozialleistungen wie Rente oder Arbeitslosengeld", sagt Waltraut Peter vom arbeitgebernahen Institut der Deutschen Wirtschaft in Köln (IW). Zahlreiche Studien zeigen zudem: Das Problem wird sich dramatisch verschärfen.

Coalition tries to calm fears following departure of David Laws | Politics | The Guardian
Senior figures in David Cameron's government attempted to calm jittery markets yesterday by insisting that the resignation of David Laws as Treasury chief secretary, and his replacement by the relatively inexperienced Danny Alexander, did not undermine plans for a deficit reduction programme in next month's emergency budget.

Some Liberal Democrats said yesterday they feared Laws was irreplaceable, and that his absence would weaken the Liberal Democrats' contribution to the coalition, and ultimately the party leader, Nick Clegg's bargaining power with Cameron.

One minister said: "David [Laws] has a capacity to consume information and process it in a logical way that very few people have. He would have been devastating at examining departmental budgets and finding efficiencies, so much so that my only worry is that he would outshine Osborne."

Merkel Loses Political Clout in Germany Over Handling of Crisis - WSJ.com
Recent poll data suggest that a majority of Germans have lost confidence in Ms. Merkel's leadership ability while support for her center-right coalition has reached a low point.

More than 60% of Germans believe Ms. Merkel has shown poor leadership during Europe's debt crisis and that she no longer has full control of her government, according to a poll by research institute Emnid and German television news channel N-24 that was published late last week.
"She wanted to do something popular to show Germans that she's acting faster than other countries," Mr. Langguth said. "Banning naked short selling has a pure function of showing the Germans we're resisting the speculators."

For now, Ms. Merkel is sticking to plans to cut government spending in the coming years, a policy that economists say will further thwart consumer spending in Europe's largest economy.

Haushaltsloch: Staatsschulden wachsen auf 1,76 Billionen Euro - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Frankfurt am Main/Berlin - Deutschland hat auch 2009 gegen die Verträge von Maastricht verstoßen: Die Staatsschulden von Gebietskörperschaften und Sozialversicherungen kletterten nach Berechnungen der Deutschen Bundesbank zum Jahresende 2009 auf 1,762 Billionen Euro. Die Schuldenlast stieg von 65,9 Prozent im Vorjahr auf 73,2 Prozent des Bruttoinlandsprodukts (BIP) und liegt damit deutlich über der Marke von 60 Prozent, die nach den EU-Regeln erlaubt sind.

105 Milliarden Euro Miese: Haushaltsloch wächst dramatisch - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Im vergangenen Jahr kletterte das Defizit auf das gut 20fache des Vorjahreswerts. 2008 hatte sich das Minus von Bund, Ländern und Kommunen noch auf 5,2 Milliarden Euro belaufen, 2009 waren es 105,5 Milliarden.
Wie das Statistische Bundesamt mitteilte, stiegen die Ausgaben um 6,7 Prozent auf 1,126 Billionen Euro. Dem standen Einnahmen von 1,021 Billionen Euro gegenüber, ein Rückgang um 2,8 Prozent. Das Bundesamt führt den Einnahmerückgang vor allem darauf zurück, dass weniger Steuern in die öffentlichen Kassen flossen.
Beim Bund sanken die Einnahmen aus Steuern und steuerähnlichen Abgaben um 3,1 Prozent auf 252,9 Milliarden Euro und bei den Ländern um 8,8 Prozent auf 189,4 Milliarden. Die Minusbeträge entstanden nach Angaben der Behörde vor allem durch gesunkene Einnahmen an Einkommen- und Körperschaftsteuer. Die kommunalen Steuereinnahmen gingen mit einem Minus von 11,4 Prozent auf 62,4 Milliarden Euro noch stärker zurück. Grund sind deutlich rückläufige Gewerbesteuereinnahmen.

Kolumne: Fricke - Und jetzt mal Deutschland | FTD.de
Seit ein paar Tagen gibt es leichte Unruhe an den Finanzmärkten. Die große Steuerreform, die Angela Merkels angeschlagene schwarz-gelbe Regierung fürs Wahljahr noch durchgeboxt hat, brockt dem Finanzminister größere Einnahmeausfälle ein als vermutet. Kurz danach meldet das Statistikamt, das Staatsdefizit habe nach Revision 2012 doch über vier Prozent des Bruttoinlandsprodukts gelegen. Ein kleiner Schock.
Die Kanzlerin gibt sich gelassen. Das werde durch die gute Konjunktur wettgemacht. Experten sagen, Deutschland sei noch gut aufgestellt. Am nächsten Tag heißt es, das Geschäftsklima habe sich eingetrübt. Aktien geben nach, der Zins auf deutsche Staatsanleihen steigt.

Kassensturz nach Steuerschätzung: Schäuble drückt sich um Streichliste - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Politik
30 Milliarden Euro werden nach Schätzungen des Bundes der Steuerzahler jährlich verschwendet.
6,8 Milliarden Euro an direkten Finanzhilfen. Größter Brocken sind die Zuschüsse für den Steinkohle-Absatz mit 1,55 Milliarden Euro. Viel Geld fließt auch in die Landwirtschaft, darunter 501 Millionen Euro in die Verbesserung der Agrarstruktur und weitere 300 Millionen in das Grünlandmilchprogramm. Viele Experten sehen hier Sparpotenzial.
Der Wegfall der Steuerbefreiung / Verguenstigung von Zuschlägen für Sonntags-, Feiertags- und Nachtarbeit brächte dem Staat Mehreinnahmen von etwa 2,1 Milliarden Euro. Wird der ermäßigte Mehrwertsteuersatz 7 %Theater und Kultur 1,8 Milliarden
Sparpotenzial wird von Experten auch bei den Personalkosten gesehen. Diese stiegen im Krisenjahr 2009 etwa bei den Kommunen um 4,9 Prozent auf 44,3 Milliarden Euro.
