Charities call for action over cancer waiting times - BBC News
Cancer charities have called for urgent action to reduce the length of time patients are having to wait for key diagnostic tests.

Nearly 16,000 people were waiting longer than the target six weeks for procedures such as CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds in December.

That compared to 3,554 people on 31 December 2015.

Charities said the figures paint a picture of a service struggling to keep up with growing demand.

Finance trumps patients at every level – UK healthcare needs an inquiry | Aseem Malhotra | Healthcare Professionals Network | The Guardian
tl;dr Diet & Lifestyle changes of the nation in the short-, medium- and long-term term can help (substantially) save the NHS. // A full public inquiry on the scale of Chilcot into the Iraq war may ultimately be required to overhaul a system where at every level financial interest continues to trump what’s best for patients – not only to improve the quality of care, but to restore trust in medical research. Until then, NHS England, the BMA and the Department of Health must make it a national priority to emphasise to patients that less medicine and healthier lifestyles are the most important solutions to sustaining the NHS. // statistics use in medical research and patient selection and reporting issue. absolute risk v % of all patients. // Such statistical and health illiteracy, far from being the exception, is actually the norm. The majority of healthcare professionals seem unable to understand medical literature. One study revealed 70% of those on a training programme failed a simple test on their understanding of evidence-based medicine.

Leading doctor warns frontline NHS services in danger of "disappearing altogether" | HeraldScotland
“We are unable to attract high quality candidates from throughout the UK as a result of Scottish Government policy in relation to remuneration and working conditions,” he said.

“This pattern is slowly eroding the calibre of the workforce as well as the numbers available to provide the service.”

He added: “It is only a matter of time before every health board in the land is so afflicted as services deteriorate and, in some areas, it is inevitable that the day will come when some services will disappear altogether. This is not scaremongering. This is what is happening.”

Chronic ill health among working age population poses 'unsustainable drain' on NHS | HeraldScotland
Currently 39 per cent of the working age population in Scotland has at least one long-term condition, but that is forecast to surge as the population ages and Scotland grapples with the fallout of an obesity epidemic.

Prof MacDonald said a failure to prevent and manage long-term conditions properly would be catastrophic as pension age increases to 68 or more.

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.

Overburdened NHS faces 'winter of woe', leading doctors warn | Society | The Guardian
A total of 181,692 bed days were lost in hospitals in England in July to “delayed transfers of care”, when patients are fit to leave but cannot be safely discharged. Prof Derek Alderson, the president of the Royal College of Surgeons, said hospitals’ ability to cope with the coming winter was at risk because so many beds were tied up with such patients. [...] A war of words between local councils and the NHS broke out on Thursday over who was to blame for the high number of patients trapped in hospital. [bc on both sides, money was not spend on care that was allocated but elsewhere to pluck holes] [...] It also emerged on Thursday that the number of written complaints about NHS services in England rose by 5% last year – with GPs a particular target of patients’ frustration.

Unpaid carers save economy almost £60bn each year - BBC News
The ONS links the rise in unpaid care by family members to "a rapidly ageing population and a higher life expectancy".
"At age 65 a man will spend, on average, 44% of the rest of his life in poorer health, and a woman, 47% of her life," says the ONS document.
Women are more likely than men to be informal carers, with women making up 59% of carers. [...] The value of unpaid care outweighs the amounts spent on formal social care, the document suggests.

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 chiefs soften 'brutal' cost-cutting plan after huge backlash | Society | The Guardian
NHS bosses have been forced to backtrack on controversial plans to impose “brutal” cost-cutting measures that involved delaying operations, denying patients treatment and closing hospital wards. [...] The backlash against the cuts envisaged under the “capped expenditure process” has prompted NHSI to write to hospital trusts in the 14 areas to clarify the initiative in a bid to lessen the hostility it has triggered. It has imposed the CEP on the 14 areas because they are due to record massive deficits this year, though they blame NHS underfunding for their problems.

The truth about the Conservative manifesto? No new funding for schools and hospitals and more austerity | The Independent
But now we know: she couldn’t give an answer because there was actually no extra spending that needed to be paid for. The Institute for Fiscal Studies has calculated that the £8bn of NHS spending is merely a continuation of the path for health spending set out in the 2015 Spending Review and implicitly assumed to be extended in the 2017 March Budget. The IFS thinks the same thing is happening in schools spending, although with the added mischief that the £4bn figure is in cash terms, so unadjusted for expected inflation. //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-children-mental-health-services-cuts-or-closure-third-downsizing-survey-staff-conservatives-a7749616.html - Third of NHS children's mental health services 'face cuts or closure' Between 2010 and 2015, spending on children’s mental health services fell by nearly £50m – more than six per cent in real terms //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-world-ranking-uk-healthcare-worse-ireland-spain-slovenia-30th-lancet-a7744131.html - NHS is 'worse than healthcare in Ireland, Spain and Slovenia' in new global ranking UK scores total of 84.6 out of 100, placing it on an equal footing with Cyprus, Qatar, Malta, Portugal and the Czech Republic

‘Get out of bed!’ scheme is more symptom than solution for the NHS | David Mitchell | Opinion | The Guardian
[ rationing beds, allocating beds, giving beds, only to the most sickest, and most sickest in need ] The principle that people who have been hospitalised should restart normal life as soon as they can is already well established. So it’s suspicious that a campaign exclusively pushing the idea of getting up and going home should coincide so precisely with the NHS’s dire shortage of money. It feels like a treatment it’s financially convenient to prescribe.

Care contracts cancelled at 95 UK councils in funding squeeze | Society | The Guardian
Ninety-five UK councils have had home care contracts cancelled by private companies struggling to deliver services on the funding offered, an investigation has found.

As a result, a quarter of the UK’s 2,500 home care providers were at risk of insolvency, and almost 70 had closed down in the past three months, according to the BBC’s Panorama programme.

The agencies – which provide help for people living independently at home – also struggled to recruit and retain staff, Panorama reported.

One home care company – Cymorth Llaw in Bangor, Wales – was forced to hand back its contract with Conwy council because it felt unable to provide adequate care with the council’s funding offer of £15 an hour. Ken Hogg, its co-director, told the programme: “We didn’t think we could do it for the money – it was as simple as that.”

Hospitals 'dangerously full' during winter crisis, says thinktank | Society | The Guardian
Hospitals were dangerously full during the recent onset of the winter crisis and breached an edict from NHS bosses to keep one in seven beds free, new analysis by the King’s Fund thinktank reveals.

England’s 153 acute hospital trusts were told by NHS Improvement – the health service regulator – on 9 December to run at no more than 85% bed occupancy between 19 December and 16 January.

That is the internationally recognised level that hospitals are meant to stick to in order to minimise the risk of potentially deadly infections and to maintain the capacity to deal with emergencies.

Doctors warn ‘struggling’ NHS could be forced to cut back treatment - The Scotsman
The situation has become so critical that in future hospitals may have to look at scaling back treatment for many patients, the British Medical Association Scotland has said.
Dr Peter Bennie, head of BMA Scotland depicts a service which is “overburdened and underfinanced” with doctors and nurses “burnt out” and argues that Scottish Government claims of record funding “completely miss the point”. “If the gap between demand and resources is going to continue, then there is no choice but to ask what the NHS in Scotland can and can’t deliver in the future.”
 [...] Funding for the health service has been “virtually stagnant” UK-wide since the onset of austerity and is not keeping pace with growing demands, Dr Bennie added.

Hopes for new Alzheimer's drug dashed - BBC News
A major trial of a drug to treat mild dementia due to Alzheimer's disease has ended in failure.
Patients on solanezumab did not show any slowing in cognitive decline compared to those treated with a placebo, or dummy drug.
The results of the trial were much anticipated after promising data was released last year.
The phase 3 trial, called EXPEDITION3, involved more than 2,000 patients with Alzheimer's disease. //&! http://www.spiegel.de/gesundheit/diagnose/alzheimer-mittel-solanezumab-wirkungslos-a-1122819.html

NHS cuts: Why they terrify people in power - BBC News
The King's Fund described clear "anxieties" among ministers and the NHS leadership about the 44 reviews of local services launched this year.
In fact, that was probably diplomatic: they're terrified of how this is all going to play out.
Hence, they have resorted to rather strong-handed techniques to keep the changes under wraps - going as far as to provide advice to local managers about how to avoid answering Freedom of Information questions.

'Breakthrough' lung cancer drug made available on NHS | Society | The Guardian
The once-a-day tablet will be available immediately for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer who have a specific mutation, known as EGFR T790M-positive, that means they have stopped responding to earlier treatments. Experts predict about 300 patients in England and Wales will be eligible for Tagrisso every year.

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.

'Superhero DNA' keeps diseases at bay
Large numbers of studies have tried to understand these mutations by looking at people who become ill.
But the international team of researchers tried the opposite approach - searching for people harbouring damaging mutations but who remain healthy. [...] "Study the healthy, don't just study the sick."
However, this is where the tantalising story ends. The scientists were unable to go out and find the lucky 13 because of the consent rules signed when their DNA sample was taken.
It means they do not know what is protecting them against disease. [...] "Because of the inability to confirm the source or validity of the variants and the inability to recontact the individuals, this paper does not constitute a proof of principle," [ means they have to do a large-scale study especially for this kind of research ]

Tumours shrunk 'dramatically' in 11 days - BBC News
The drugs were lapatinib and trastuzumab, which is more widely known as Herceptin. They both target HER2 - a protein that fuels the growth of some women's breast cancers. Herceptin works on the surface of cancerous cells while lapatinib is able to penetrate inside the cell to disable HER2. The study, which also took place at NHS hospitals in Manchester, gave the treatment to women with tumours measuring between 1 and 3cm. In less than two weeks of treatment, the cancer disappeared entirely in 11% of cases, and in a further 17% they were smaller than 5mm. //&! angiogenesis STUPID! - diet - http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=angiogenesis &! https://www.ted.com/talks/william_li?language=en &! http://blog.ted.com/dr_william_lis/ --- It's too much of a ask by meat eating cancer doctors to ask cancer patients to adhere to a Whole-Food Plant-Based diet w some physical activity.

[...] [D]octors are now more confident that replacement joints will be more durable than in the past. Patients are also said to be less willing to wait.

[...] [A]s hip replacement techniques and prosthetics have improved, so have the numbers of younger patients undergoing this type of surgery. "It's no longer seen as a last resort.

Zika and Ebola: A taste of things to come? - BBC News
Both diseases have been known about for decades, and yet in both cases no vaccines or drugs were available when we most needed them. So what's going on? Is this just a terrible coincidence, being caught off-guard like this twice in such quick succession, or is it part of a worrying trend and a taste of things to come? At first glance it wouldn't appear that the two diseases have much in common. One is difficult to catch but a ferocious killer, while the other spreads with ease but is relatively harmless to the vast majority of people infected. Yet, in both cases there is something novel, either in the way the virus has spread or in how it affected people which has made the outbreaks more of a threat. In global health security terms that is a real concern, because such sudden changes of modus operandi can not only make public health threats even more difficult to predict or anticipate than normal, but also make all the difference between a localised outbreak and global pandemic.
