NHS property agency taken to task by National Audit Office
A state-owned property company that runs swaths of the National Health Service estate has no formal leases in place with most of its tenants and lacks the power to collect more than £500m in unpaid bills, according to a damning report by government auditors. NHS Property Services is owed £576m of unpaid rent and other charges and has racked up £1.01bn of losses since it was established six years ago, the National Audit Office said. “The framework for charging for NHS property is not working effectively and the department [of health] urgently needs to address the fundamental causes of this u...

Self-Inflicted Medical Misery
Over the weekend The Washington Post published a heart-rending description of a pop-up medical clinic in Cleveland, Tenn. — a temporary installation providing free care for two days on a first-come-first-served basis. Hundreds of people showed up many hours before the clinic opened, because rural America is suffering from a severe crisis of health care availability, with hospitals closing and doctors leaving. Since the focus of the report was on personal experience, not policy, it’s understandable that the article mentioned only in passing the fact that Tennessee is one of the 14 states tha...

Botox Maker Allergan Is Sold to AbbVie in $63 Billion Deal
The drugmaker AbbVie said on Tuesday that it planned to buy Allergan, the maker of Botox, for about $63 billion, in one of the biggest mergers in the health care industry this year. The deal represents a classic response to a perennial drug industry challenge: how to recover when a blockbuster drug is losing its patent protection. In acquiring Allergan, AbbVie gets to bypass the risky process of research and development by buying a portfolio of popular products as it faces the loss of patent protection for Humira, a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis that is the world’s top-selling drug. “T...

How Technology Is Being Used To Reduce Racial Disparities In Healthcare
The inequalities in the healthcare industry are widely documented, with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reporting earlier this year, for example, that there are massive racial disparities in pregnancy-related deaths. There is a lack of diversity in the medical field with only about 4% of U.S. doctors being black/African American and 5% being Hispanic; Latinos are currently one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the U.S., which makes the latter statistic particularly problematic. With these health disparities in mind, a new platform, Hued, was developed. Hued is a platform...

12 killed by rare bacterial infection in Essex
Twelve people have been killed by an outbreak of a rare bacterial infection in Essex, the NHS has said.

Despite Naysayers, Trump's Executive Order on Health Care Transparency Is a Breakthrough
President Trump signed an executive order (EO) Monday calling for price transparency in health care, aiming for patients to learn the price of a treatment before they undergo it. It is ridiculous that this EO is necessary at all—what other business routinely conceals its prices until after the sale? But among health industry insiders, disclosing pricing is an outrage of epic proportions. Industry leaders pounced on the EO, saying it would require them to disclose propriety contract terms. Before we cue the violins, those contracts govern the terms of patients’ experience with hospitals and…

The Job-Jumping Generation: Mistakes Millennials Are Making When Changing Jobs
This new employment model is not a bad thing, but there are common mistakes millennials may be making when they change jobs—and it may be possible to avoid some of them. The millennial generation is unique in many ways: raised with advanced technology, everything is documented on social media and the avocado market has never been stronger. But one major way that millennials are changing society is in the job market. There is a new trend of free agency among young professionals, meaning they don’t view themselves as a member of one company for the duration of their career. Instead of trying…

I’m an NHS nurse. This is how I’m convincing Americans to fight for free healthcare
As a British nurse, over the last year I have built links with American nurses who are leading the fight to establish Medicare For All in the USA. As we have shared experiences about the profession we love, I have been shocked by the horror stories from my US counterparts. The Americans don't have a healthcare system, they have a rolling healthcare crisis. Despite spending more money than any other country, millions of people in the US have no access to healthcare. Millions more have inadequate health insurance that could never actually cover their medical bills. One third of all fundraiser...

The Brief: How Brexit is affecting people's mental health
A recent Britain Thinks poll showed that 83% of people were sick of hearing about Brexit, while 64% believed it was damaging their mental health. To check if this was the case, we caught up with Sharon Leclercq-Spooner, a full-time, anti-Brexit activist based in Brussels. The trade expert reckons Brexit has taken a toll on her mentally and physically. She moderated an anti-Brexit event on an EU council day, and the stress overcame her. "It turns out I've got shingles and that's not good," she said. "That's probably just doing too much worrying. I call it Brexititis because it came on the da...
