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.

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. //&! &! - 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!]

Scale of NHS deficits to be revealed - BBC News
"we are looking at a systematic problem across the health service." locum staff & sending patients 4 ops 2 private places paid by NHS 2 clear rising waiting lists (RISING DEMAND) & meet Targets. Bed blocking bc severe shortage of elderly care done by austerity. Ageing & premature ageing population & rise of chronic diseases (& thus other comorbidity things that are a result of chronic diseases:joint pains back pains heart problems mobility problems swollen legs bc bodies lymph system gives up skin problems infections care etc complex needs arise - bc they treat symptoms. not the problem, the root of all evil). NHS cant treat a sick population with the status quo it has been handed down by Tories policy. Tories like 2 remove benefits from parents of truants, disabled, vulnerable (to make their lives better). BUT Big Sugar & Processed Food? No nanny state there. Socially unacceptable. Unpopular amongst majority. Career Politicians unequal real reformer/visionary. &!

NHS weekend: 7-day GP opening 'unachievable' - BBC News
something for their electorate - those that go out and vote. // The goal of seven-day routine GP opening in England is unachievable in this Parliament and risks destabilising care, the Royal College of GPs says. // &! // // &! The health secretary’s plan for NHS reform focuses on improving patient safety, but his proposals are overshadowed by the funding deficit and issues around seven-day working - - the repeated ripping up of health service improvement bodies – which has been going on for decades – undermines effectiveness and credibility. Elsewhere in his vision, Hunt couldn’t resist the gimmick of appointing technology guru Baroness Martha Lane-Fox to explore “digital innovations” for the NHS – as if there hadn’t been enough reports on the potential of technology to transform healthcare. [...] But the spectre of the NHS deficit still haunts his reform plans. // &! - aging population and chronically sick population // &!
