Stroke deaths in England halved in ten years, study finds | NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre
global burden of disease

The rate of people dying from strokes decreased by 55% in a decade, according to a study published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal).

Researchers from the University of Oxford analysed data from almost 800,000 adults in England admitted to hospital between 2001 and 2010.

The authors said: "Our findings show that most of the reduction in stroke mortality is a result of improved survival of patients with stroke.

"However, acute and long-term management of such patients is expensive, and the NHS is already spending about 5% of its budget on stroke care.

"By focusing on prevention and reducing the occurrence of stroke, major resources can be conserved."

The study found that death rates from strokes decreased across all age groups. In men, overall death rates dropped from 140 per 100,000 people in 2001, to 74 per 100,000 people in 2010, and in women, from 128 per 100,000 to 72 per 100,000.

How the humble potato fuelled the rise of liberal capitalism
Enlightened eating

Today’s somewhat uneasy marriage of public health and individual choice is the result of new ideas that emerged during the Enlightenment. During the 18th century, states across Europe began to rethink the bases of national wealth and strength. At the heart of these new ideas was a new appreciation of what we would now call public health. Whereas in earlier centuries rulers wished to prevent famines that might cause public unrest, in the 18th century, politicians became increasingly convinced that national strength and economic prowess required more than an obedient population disinclined to riot.

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.

NHS faces staggering increase in cost of elderly care, academics warn | Society | The Guardian
major new research which shows a 25% increase in those who will need care between 2015 and 2025.

Within eight years, there will be 2.8 million people over 65 needing nursing and social care, unable to cope alone, says the research – largely because of the toll of dementia in a growing elderly population. The research, published by the respected Lancet Public Health medical journal, says cases of disability related to dementia will rise by 40% among people aged 65 to 84, with other forms of disability increasing by about 31%. [...] Immediate investment in improving people’s lifestyles would pay dividends, they say.

'Fat but fit is a big fat myth' - BBC News
[ the thing is, the body is constantly fight - inflamation and immune system, there comes a time in a bodies life when it will give up and cruble under the pressure of ill diet and lifestyle ] They say people who were obese but who had no initial signs of heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol were not protected from ill health in later life, contradicting previous research.
A summary of their study was discussed at the European Congress on Obesity.
The term "fat but fit" refers to the alluring theory that if people are obese but all their other metabolic factors such as blood pressure and blood sugar are within recommended limits then the extra weight will not be harmful. [...] They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight.

Life-or-death 999 call target missed for year
Crews are meant to reach patients who have had cardiac arrests or are not breathing - so-called Red 1 calls - within eight minutes.
But performance data from NHS England for May showed for the 12th month in a row the 75% target has been missed.
The target for Red 2 calls, for other life-threatening cases such as strokes, has not been met since January 2014.
During May, 70.5% of Red 1 calls were met in eight minutes and for Red 2 calls it was 65%.
NHS England blamed the problem on the rising number of calls - there have been nearly 11m in the past year, an increase of 7% on the previous year.

Council tax rises 'fail to stop care cuts'
[ TAX THE CAUSE! ] Care services are facing cuts this year as rises in council tax have failed to plug the gaps in budgets in England, town hall chiefs are warning.
The government allowed councils to increase council tax by 2% this year to spend on care - and most have done so.
But, according to a survey of all 151 social care directors, there is still a shortfall of nearly £1bn.
The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services said councils had no option but to reduce the services.
Directors in charge of care for older people and adults with disabilities indicated in the annual survey only about half of this shortfall could be met by efficiency savings.

[...] "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.

Study: Heart attack patients getting younger, fatter
Despite greater awareness of risk factors for heart disease and the need for healthy lifestyle changes, heart attack patients are becoming younger and more obese, according to new research from the Cleveland Clinic. // Google Info Box - The risk of heart attack increases steadily for men after age 45, and the average age of a man having his first heart attack is about 66. About 565,000 men are expected to suffer a heart attack in 2009. Nearly half of those younger than 65 years old who have a heart attack will die within eight years. (7 Dec 2012) // nbcnews.to/1obb39f

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%

'Queen of Snapchat' Katie May dies aged 34 after suffering a stroke - BBC Newsbeat
Katie May, an American model who had been called the "Queen of Snapchat", has died at the age of 34. The star had a stroke on Monday and was seriously ill in hospital but passed away on Thursday. TMZ reports that she was taken off life support in Los Angeles with her family around her bedside. [...] She had reportedly told doctors earlier this week that she had neck pains which specialists told her was a blocked carotid artery. [... no medical insurance, thus has not been treated, left with the time bomb ... ] ///&! Our sources say the operating theory is the 34-year-old model did not pinch a nerve, but instead tore the carotid artery in her neck. As we first reported, doctors told Katie's family the tear caused a blood clot which broke off and caused her stroke on Monday. It's called a carotid artery dissection. - bit.ly/1K2FYPT

Government has no idea about Cancer Drugs Fund's impact, MPs say | Society | The Guardian
Department of Health and NHS England have insufficient data on patient outcomes or value for money, and little control over its spiralling budget, committee says [...] “The Department of Health and NHS England do not have the data needed to assess the impact of the fund on patient outcomes, such as extending patients’ lives, or to demonstrate whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money.” The fund was set up in 2010 by the Conservative government because of the regular outcry from patient organisations and the media when cancer drugs, which typically offer potential weeks or months of extra life to those with a terminal diagnosis, were turned down by Nice, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

Aneurysm screening 'helps thousands' - BBC News
[ its like cancer, early detection you know, not prevention. but doesn't say being on operating table can also have side effects/complications ie death. more risk with more heart disease and age. ] Simple ultrasound scans have helped detect more than 10,000 aneurysms - potentially serious blood vessel swellings - since a now UK-wide screening programme started in 2009. If left untreated larger abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) - where the main blood vessel in the body weakens and expands - can be deadly. But because many do not have symptoms, people may be unaware they have an AAA until they fatally burst. A million men have been screened. [...] Public Health England says after 10 years of screening, half of all ruptures should be prevented, saving an estimated 1,500-2,000 lives a year - though the data to support this is not yet available.

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. [...] NHS will face significantly more pressure as Scotland's population continues to age." [...] [Shona Robinson] ensuring our NHS is sustainable for future generations.

Gesundheit in Deutschland: Bericht Robert Koch-Institut - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir werden immer älter und sterben seltener an Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt ein Bericht zur Gesundheit der Deutschen. Sorgen machen Experten zu niedrige Impfquoten, resistente Keime und Diabetes. [...] Zudem sterben die Menschen hierzulande seltener an Erkrankungen des Herzens, etwa Herzinfarkten, und Schlaganfällen als noch vor 20 Jahren. Verantwortlich dafür macht das RKI Fortschritte in der Therapie und eine bessere medizinische Versorgung und Vorsorge. Trotzdem bleiben Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen mit einem Anteil von knapp 40 Prozent die häufigste Todesursache. Krebserkrankungen stehen an zweiter Stelle. Sie sind laut Bericht für einen Viertel (25 Prozent) der Todesfälle in Deutschland verantwortlich. Während insgesamt mehr Menschen an Krebs erkranken (weil es mehr ältere gibt), sinkt die Sterblichkeitsrate bei den meisten Krebsarten. Das RKI führt das auf bessere Therapien und Fortschritte bei der Früherkennung zurück.

Lebenserwartung-Studie: Menschen leben länger - jedoch für hohen Preis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Eine aktuelle Studie zeigt, wie unterschiedlich die Lebenserwartung weltweit verteilt ist - und wie viel Zeit wir mit Krankheiten leben. [...] Laut der Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 werden die Menschen immer älter. In den 23 Jahren zwischen 1990 und 2013 ist die weltweite Lebenserwartung um 6,2 Jahre gestiegen. Gleichzeitig zeigen die Ergebnisse aber, dass die gewonnenen Jahre häufig mit einem hohen Preis bezahlt werden: Sie gehen zu Lasten der eigenen Gesundheit. [...] 1. Länger leben, länger krank: [...] Hierzulande haben Menschen, die 2013 geboren wurden, laut den Daten eine Lebenserwartung von 80,7 Jahren. Gesund sind sie davon aber lediglich 68,8 Jahre. [...] Ursache für die ungesunden zusätzlichen Lebensjahre sind oft nicht Krankheiten von Herz und Kreislauf oder Krebs, schreiben die Forscher. Stattdessen listen sie Leiden wie Diabetes, Muskel- und Skeletterkrankungen, mentale Krankheiten, Suchtprobleme, neurologische Erkrankungen sowie Hör- und Sehverlust auf.

Obesity is an incurable disease. So why is the government intent on punishing sufferers? | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
Fat-shaming is worse than useless. David Cameron points his finger at the afflicted, but food manufacturers and advertisers are the real culprits. s overeating more addictive than crack cocaine? It’s hard to compare addiction rates, or to produce a clear definition that holds true across all substances and behaviours. But consider this crude contrast: of people who use crack cocaine, 10%-20% become addicted to it; across a nine-year study of 176,000 obese people, 98.3% of the men and 97.8% of the women failed to return to a healthy weight.
