Can Liverpool's new hospital make the whole city healthier – and wealthier? | Cities | The Guardian
Jackson also says the trust is working hard to reduce the length of time patients – especially older people – will stay in the hospital. In part by helping people to stay at home for longer and return home more quickly. “Gerontologists will tell you that a 60-year-old who spends 14 nights in hospital will age 10 years,” Jackson says. Speeding up the time it takes to generate results such as ultrasounds will also reduce the time all patients have to spend in the hospital. [...] Despite the city’s fortunes improving in recent years, Liverpool is still one of the most deprived areas of the country [...] while the average household income is £22,787 – £14,000 lower than the national average (pdf) – and four in 10 children live in low income households – more than double the national average.

I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

Services for LGBT young people will just disappear | Kirstie Brewer | Society | The Guardian
Cuts to council youth budgets are putting vital specialist provision for vulnerable youngsters in jeopardy [...] “Youth provision has always been the Cinderella service and LGBT youth provision is its poor relation,” [...] Overall, youth services directly provided by councils in England have been cut by 36% since 2011 – from £877m to £561m total expenditure, according to figures provided by Kate Green, shadow minister for women and equalities. “Councils are facing impossible decisions about youth services as the government slashes their revenue support grants by over 50%, regardless of the cost to individuals and communities,” //&!

Mental health early deaths 'worrying in one in four areas' - BBC News
Overall, the premature death rate among those with mental health problems was 2.4 times higher than that of the general population. [...] The review - by the Open Public Services Network, part of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce - said the physical health needs of people with mental health problems were not being addressed. The findings mirror a recent report by the Nuffield Trust think tank and come as NHS England is preparing to unveil its new strategy for mental health services. [...] [...??? >> ] "It is about making sure they get basic checks for things such as diabetes and high cholesterol."

Mindfulness has huge health potential – but McMindfulness is no panacea | Jon Kabat-Zinn | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ you own only your thoughts, emotions and health (fitness) ] [ you have to function ] Mindfulness is often misunderstood – so let us be clear about what we are encouraging. In essence, mindfulness – being about attention, awareness, relationality, and caring – is a universal human capacity akin to our capacity for language acquisition. It is a way of being in wise and purposeful relationship with one’s experience, both inwardly and outwardly, with oneself and with others. Thus there is an intrinsic social dimension to its cultivation as well. It usually involves cultivating familiarity and intimacy with aspects of everyday experience that we often take for granted.

Jaywick and Middlesbrough most deprived areas in England - BBC News
The department's Indices of Deprivation scored neighbourhoods according to seven key areas including crime, health and employment. It found almost half of Middlesbrough's 42 neighbourhoods were among the most deprived 10% nationally, while it classed 162 of Birmingham's 253 neighbourhoods as highly-deprived. Report author Baljit Gill said: "There are concentrations of deprivation in large urban conurbations, areas that have historically had large heavy industry, manufacturing and or mining sectors, coastal towns, and large parts of east London. "There are also pockets of deprivation surrounded by less deprived places in every region of England." //&! bit.ly/1Gh08Ow

Obese people and drug users who refuse treatment could have benefits cut | Society | The Guardian
A nanny state for those that cost the state (directly, and now), because it fits their message 'only work pays'! what a double standard. what a intellectual dishonesty and cynicism. And again putting it like it is a 'lifestyle choice' being addicted and or obese. That one chose consciously, in order not to 'work.' // if people work, and are overweight, have diabetes, obese, high blood pressure, take statins, runing their liver long-term with alcohol abuse (functioning alcoholic, drug user) etc etc - costing the NHS especially long-term (sick population) - it is ok, but if they don't work. it's not ok. // after all, substance abuse, in majority of cases has a mental health (history) & social environment (nurture) component to it. Much complexity to it. And cutting services to actually help & prevent people going down the route of abuse doesn't help. Cutting A, putting it back in B. // &! bit.ly/1JACXDU - UK proposals to strip obese claimants of benefits 'flawed and unethical'
