NHS in Scotland facing 'pressure', doctors warn - BBC News
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.

Antibabypille birgt Risiken: Das müssen Sie wissen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Durch einen Prozess rückt eine seltene, aber dramatische Nebenwirkung von Antibabypillen ins Bewusstsein: Blutgerinnsel, die schlimmstenfalls zum Tod führen können. Die Antworten auf die wichtigsten Fragen. [...] Die Frage lautet: Hat Bayer damals ausreichend vor dem Risiko eines Blutgerinnsels gewarnt? Es wird durch diese Pille stärker erhöht als durch andere, ältere Präparate. Rohrer sagt, sie hätte "Yasminelle" nie genommen, wenn sie von der gesteigerten Gefahr gewusst hätte. Man rechnet mit einem langen Verfahren. Der Versuch, eine außergerichtliche Einigung herbeizuführen, ist bereits gescheitert. //&! - Rohrer leidet seit der Lungenembolie unter anderem an Herz- und Atembeschwerden. Kinder dürfe sie keine bekommen, weil sie dauerhaft ein Blutverdünnungsmittel einnehmen müsse.

Children of obese mothers 'have higher heart risk'
It is not known how much of the link is down to genetics, influences in the womb or later lifestyle.

Consultant obstetrician Alyson Hunter said the problem was turning into an epidemic. + >>
