UK housing crisis deepens as benefit claimants priced out by high rents | Society | The Guardian
LHA is relied upon by 1.2m households to rent private accommodation but it has been frozen since 2016 and will continue to be frozen until at least 2020 as part of welfare cuts.

Council bosses have said that with private rents continuing to rise, sharp falls in affordability over the last three years are causing homelessness and child neglect as families cut back on essentials including food to make up rent shortfalls.

Is the NHS's long-term plan workable? - BBC News
Bleak picture
Budgets for public health (including prevention) and training of nurses, doctors and other staff have not yet been set out and, if less generous than the NHS settlement, they could affect the ability of the service to deliver the long-term plan, in the view of the report authors.

And what of the short term? The watchdog paints a bleak picture.

The financial health of some trusts, it says, is getting worse.

Children’s commissioner seeks more help for young people in vulnerable family situations [...] Government spending on early intervention services for children through local authorities has been reduced by 60% since 2010. The research says investing in these services is cost-effective compared with the expense of putting a child into care, which can be as much as £55,000 a year. Local authorities have said there is a growing crisis in children’s social care caused by increasing numbers of children being taken into care or made subject to child protection plans as a result of the failure to provide early support for families.

Over 3,700 deaths linked to alcohol - BBC News
Alcohol was a factor in more than 3,700 deaths in a single year in Scotland, according to new research.

Findings from NHS Health Scotland show that drink was involved in more than 1,000 deaths from cancer in 2015.

It was also linked to hundreds of deaths from conditions such as liver disease, as well as accidental injuries.

In addition, more than 41,000 people were admitted to hospital as a result of consuming alcohol, the study found.

Experts said the findings show that alcohol has a wider impact on health than many people think.

Funding the NHS: Is it finally time for a new approach? - BBC News
A ring-fenced tax for health and social care has been resisted in the past by the Treasury. Such a policy is known by economists as hypothecation. Opponents, including Treasury mandarins, believe it ties the hands of chancellors.

But, intriguingly, a former top civil servant at the Treasury, Sir Nick Macpherson, has come out in favour of a ring-fenced tax which is renewed every five years.

Mit kleinen Veränderungen bei Ernährung, Bewegung oder Schlaf lassen sich biochemische Prozesse im Körper anstoßen, die die Wahrscheinlichkeit deutlich erhöhen, gesund alt zu werden. "Aber nicht nur körperliche Faktoren spielen eine Rolle", so Voelpel: Auch die Lebensführung, soziale Kontakte, die Arbeit und Hobbys können viel dazu beitragen, geistig und körperlich jung zu bleiben.

“The data demonstrates the increasing pressures on the system. It provides evidence of the underlying cracks within the NHS, such as funding constraints, changes and increases in demand, disjointed care and workforce pressures,” the BMA report said.

It noted that pressures on mental health services were particularly acute, with a 44% decrease in the number of mental health beds since 2000-01. [...] “Ultimately we could reduce the need for hospital beds by improving preventive care. But cutting both preventive services and beds leads to disaster. That is what we are now witnessing.”

NHS Health Check: Short GP consultations crazy, say GPs - BBC News
Average consultation length is 10 minutes in the UK - thought to be the shortest in the developed world.
GP leaders said this was already too short and the extra workload from the hospital closures proposed by local leaders would destabilise care.
The proposals are being made by local health leaders to "modernise" the NHS.
There are 44 plans in England - many of which involve reducing hospital care and pushing more services into the community to save money and make the NHS more efficient. Similar measures are being taken in the rest of the UK. [...] The RCGP and BMA said they would result in even more complex cases being passed on to GPs once they start being introduced later this year.

NHS surgery referrals to private sector rocket
The Press and Journal understands the increase in private referrals can be explained in part by the introduction of the Scottish Government’s 12-week treatment time guarantee in 2012. As a way of keeping to the timescale, patients can be given the choice of going elsewhere for surgery. [...] An NHS Grampian spokeswoman said the board was committed to meeting the waiting times target for all patients, but added: “Currently it is not always possible for us to do this locally. “There are protocols in place which allow for referral to other centres – both NHS and private.” [...] largely due to an increasingly ageing population. [...] “As a result, at times we have been unable to match supply with demand.

NHS child mental health money 'missing' despite investment - BBC News
[ demand resource mismatch, chronic sick population siphoning off funds more and more ] Last summer ministers said they would invest an additional £143m in the services this financial year. The Mental Health Network suspects the funding has been used to support other NHS services. [...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line. We are not hearing any reports of any significant investment at a local level around children's services. Indeed, some services are still experiencing cuts in services." [...] Some trusts say they have seen additional funding [ TORY CONSTITUENCIES!? as the 300m - bit.ly/1QzPqJT & bit.ly/1KG9DhK & bit.ly/1QIfVuA ]

Obesity bigger cost for Britain than war and terror | Society | The Guardian
Britain spending £47bn a year dealing with the healthcare and social costs of an increasingly overweight population, study finds. Obesity is a greater burden on the UK’s economy than armed violence, war and terrorism, costing the country nearly £47bn a year, a report has found. The study, commissioned by consultancy firm McKinsey and Company, reveals obesity has the second-largest economic impact on the UK behind smoking, generating an annual loss equivalent to 3% of GDP. [...] It has called for a co-ordinated response from governments, retailers, restaurants and food and drink manufacturers to address what it calls the “global obesity crisis”. A series of 44 interventions could bring 20% of overweight or obese people in UK back to normal weight within five to 10 years, the report says. This would save around £16bn a year in the UK, including an annual saving of about £766m in the NHS, according to the study. [...] “Today 25% of the nation is obese and 37% is overweight.

Heads warn over pupils' untreated mental health issues - BBC News
Children's untreated mental health issues could spiral into psychiatric problems later in life unless more is done in schools, say head teachers. The National Association of Head Teachers says with a fifth of children having a mental health problem before age 11, it is a key concern. A snapshot survey of 1,455 English heads suggests two-thirds of primary schools cannot deal with such issues. The government says it has ring-fenced £1.4bn for children's mental health. //&!

South Somerset deploys ‘health coaches’ to take pressure off NHS - FT.com
Chronic conditions make a big share of cost // Underpinning the approach is a careful “segmenting” of patients to discover which are making maximum demands on the system. [...] In South Somerset, it was discovered that just 4 per cent of local people were between them consuming up to 50 per cent of the health and social care budget. High quality global journalism requires investment. Early results among a sample group of 100 patients are striking. Emergency admissions have fallen by 42 per cent, accident and emergency department visits by 4 per cent and outpatient appointments by 15 per cent, year on year, since the establishment of a “hub”, bringing together doctors, nurses and care workers to span the historically iron divide between GP surgery, community and hospital services. [...] “health coaches”. Cheaper than clinicians, and bringing a different skill set, they are seen as key to ensuring patients take responsibility for their own health [...] [mismatch of resources & demand]

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? ]

NHS: Surging patient numbers - what's happening in A&E? - BBC News
Elderly patients. Heads of emergency departments point out there has not been a sudden new spike in numbers of people coming through their doors. They argue that there has been a steadily increasing trend going back a couple of years. Familiar factors are quoted, including numbers of frail, elderly patients with multiple conditions needing an increasing range of care and treatment. One specialist in geriatric medicine told me more older patients were coming into A&E because of problems with care in their home. This could be because social care was lacking in some way, or because a spouse had become unable to cope. But the surge in hospital attendances was by no means dominated by the over-65s.

Cortisol levels in children's hair may reveal future mental health risk | Society | The Guardian
Australian researchers found the greater number of traumatic events a child had experienced, the higher the hair cortisol concentrations. Hair samples may help determine the risk of a child developing mental and other chronic illnesses later in their life, research led by the University of Melbourne has found. [...] It suggests hair cortisol levels may provide a marker of trauma exposure in children and identify those at risk of developing psychosocial and behavioural problems, and who may need medical and psychological support, leader of the study and a fellow in child and adolescent mental health at the University of Melbourne, Dr Julian Simmons, said.

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.

Obesity costs Scotland up to £4bn, says parliament report - BBC News
http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Health/TrendObesity - In 2014, 65% of adults aged 16 and over were overweight, including 28% who were obese. There has been an increase in the proportion who are overweight or obese among both sexes (aged 16-64) since 1995, from 52% to 63%. Most of this increase was seen between 1995 and 2008, with figures remaining broadly stable since then. // Obesity could be costing Scotland up to £4.6bn a year, according to a new report. The figure came in a Scottish Parliament briefing which said the problem was putting a "significant and growing burden" on the nation. [...] The government launched a strategy in 2010 to tackle Scotland's "obesity time bomb". [ bbc.in/1YBueVs << LOL !!! ] The new report, produced by the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (Spice), said the problem could be costing the NHS as much as £600m a year.

'Mad Friday': Christmas revellers given alcohol warning - BBC News
The last weekend before the Christmas holiday could see alcohol-fuelled emergencies increase by up to 50%, officials believe. Alcohol sales across December could reach £2.3bn, health campaigners say. Public Health England has urged people to join its "Dry January" campaign to give up alcohol in the new year. According to figures from Public Health England and Alcohol Concern, alcohol sales in pubs, clubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK increased by 142% on the final Friday before Christmas last year. [...] "A period of abstinence could help encourage less harmful, better drinking habits in the long-term - even six months later, evidence from Dry January shows that more than two-thirds of participants are still drinking less. "As the festive season continues, we're urging people to take a break and get their 2016 off to a positive start by signing up for Dry January."

A radical shift in thinking on mental health issues | Letters | Society | The Guardian
We need a radical shift in our understanding, to put bipolar and other chronic mental health conditions on a par with conditions like cancer and heart disease – where science has been put to work to transform care, improve treatments and save lives. [...] An additional key question, though, is what sort of mental health services do we want access to? Rather than more of the same, we seek a wider choice of therapies than the current dominant model of short-term, cognitive behavioural counselling. There is a need for inpatient treatment when in crisis, as well as user-led community services that can keep individuals out of crisis. And we also need to recognise the wider context. Mental distress increases through the increasing despondency and inequalities of austerity-led economic policies. [...] NHS Scotland spends just 8.6% of its total funding treating mental health problems; in England and Wales the figure is 11.9%.

NHS to get above-inflation £3.8bn cash boost next year - BBC News
The plans for NHS spending over the next five years have been unveiled by chancellor George Osborne the day before the rest of the spending review announcement on Wednesday. They cover the budget for the front line which is held by NHS England. [...] Not included in this £101bn is a variety of other funding streams, covering things such as stop smoking services, health visitors, weight management schemes and staff training. These are widely expected to get cut - and experts fear such a move could prove to be a false economy and end up having a knock-on effect on the frontline. [...] Once the £1.8bn extra ministers gave the NHS this year is taken into account, it means the government can claim to have increased spending by over £10bn. //&! So is there a catch and what are the strings attached? - bbc.in/1T2m0Ut - cuts in public health spending by local authorities will be made. (prevention and intervention schemes).

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.

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. //&! bbc.in/1PGQddr - the NHS adapting to changed demands. highlights areas where not much progress has been made towards the vision.

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

The NHS is on a one-way road to privatisation | Healthcare Professionals Network | The Guardian
[ 'founder' of NHS said NHS exists as long as people fight for it. true north ] [ rationing and creating Cinderella service ] The British public has not agreed to the destruction of the health service. It’s up to all of us to fight for it. [...] This translates into unlimited rationing. We are already seeing the rationing of hearing aids and cataracts. Devon CCG announced that all routine surgery would be restricted for obese patients and smokers. And routine shoulder surgery would be restricted for all patients. [...] Simon Stevens’ Five Year Forward View asked the government for an extra £8bn each year but the flip side of this is a further £22bn in efficiency savings. Never has the NHS undergone such a funding squeeze since its inception. Yet we spend significantly less on the NHS than the EU average and well below the likes of France, Germany and the Netherlands. Out of the G7, only Italy has the same level of spending.

Top doctor: social inequality in UK costing 550 lives every day | Society | The Guardian
“social gradient” emerging in Britain. [...] However, it was in the field of education where Marmot said the research vividly showed how unfair life was becoming. “If everybody had the same mortality of those with a university education, then [each year] we could prevent 202,000 premature deaths.” [...] In his new book, The Health Gap, he argues that those who blame lifestyles miss the point. “Over 30 years, smoking levels have declined while obesity has soared. Have we become more responsible when it comes to smoking and less responsible when it comes to obesity. No.” [...] There is little doubt that inequality has become a feature of British life. Since 1980, the share of total income received by the top one per cent of Britain has almost doubled, to about 13% in 2011, reversing a three-decades-long trend towards greater equality. [...] “austerity agenda” had cut 5% from GDP [according to OBR].
