    What Is "Antivaccinationism?" According to Vignaud, the catchall term "antivaccinationism" can be broken down into three categories, based on intensity and nature. First is vaccine hesitancy, the refusal of certain vaccines or the delay in getting them despite vaccination services being available. Next is vaccine scepticism. This describes a critical attitude toward vaccines, one that may explain a person's reluctance or refusal to follow vaccine policies. Third, antivaccinationism in its current form stems from the adherence to one or more theories that are opposed to

    A senior NHS leader has warned of a “life-threatening” situation in which clinically vulnerable people are being admitted to hospital after having their energy supplies disconnected. Sam Allen, chief executive of North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB), has written to Ofgem today to raise “serious concerns” that vulnerable people have seen their electricity or gas services disconnected as a result of non-payment. In the letter, which the ICB has published on its website, Ms Allen said the impact of energy supplies being cut off “will be life threatening for some peop

    Responding to the Ofgem announcement on the energy price cap, Jo Bibby, Director of Health at the Health Foundation said: 'Today’s announcement confirms the mounting financial pressures facing people this winter. 'Cold, damp homes make people ill. When people are having to make a choice between heating and eating, their health is going to suffer. Many will face the stress of managing debt and, in the long run, the price will be paid in poorer health, more pressure on the NHS, and fewer people in work. 'The cost-of-living crisis should be a spur for action for the new govern

    Cold homes will damage children’s lungs and brain development and lead to deaths as part of a “significant humanitarian crisis” this winter, health experts have warned. Unless the next prime minister curbs soaring fuel bills, children face a wave of respiratory illness with long-term consequences, according to a review by Sir Michael Marmot, the director of University College London’s Institute of Health Equity, and Prof Ian Sinha, a respiratory consultant at Liverpool’s Alder Hey children’s hospital. Sinha said he had “no doubt” that cold homes would cost children’s lives this winte

    Rising numbers of people will fall sick and see their health worsen unless the government takes further action to limit energy price rises, the NHS says. The NHS Confederation said the UK was facing a "humanitarian crisis". The group, which represents health bosses, said many people would face the awful choice between skipping meals to heat their homes or having to live in cold and damp conditions. But ministers said action was already being taken and the NHS supported. This includes £400 payments to every household this autumn to help pay energy bills. However, in a letter to m

    A 60-year-old woman in England’s poorest areas typically has the same level of illness as a woman 16 years older in the richest areas, a study into health inequalities has found. The Health Foundation found a similarly stark, though less wide, gap in men’s health. At 60 a man living in the most deprived 10% of the country typically has the burden of ill-health experienced by a counterpart in the wealthiest 10% at the age of 70. The thinktank’s analysis of NHS data also shows that women in England’s poorest places are diagnosed with a long-term illness at the age of 40 on average, whe

    Key points Health inequalities are complex and growing, yet firm evidence on their extent and trajectory is few and far between. There is a vital need to quantify health inequalities in order to better focus policies designed to address them. This analysis uses a novel approach to explore the extent of diagnosed health inequalities across different population groups in England. The Cambridge Multimorbidity Score, developed by clinicians and academics, assesses the relative impact of different patterns of illness on people and their health care needs. Access to patient data linking

    More than 100,000 doses of the monkeypox vaccine have been acquired in order to combat the spread of the virus, the government has said. Last month the NHS stepped up its monkeypox vaccination programme in England as infections rose. Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said the majority of vaccines were being made available in London, with about 75% of confirmed cases in the capital. But she urged people to wait to be invited to receive their jabs. While anyone can get monkeypox, the majority of those with the virus are gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. Th

    Startling numbers from around the world give grim statistical support for the argument that healthcare quality has not only stalled, but is in worrying retreat. Nearly 15 million deaths have been attributed to Covid-19 worldwide. All countries have seen waiting times increase and deaths from cardiac conditions and cancer rise. Mental health problems have been exacerbated, while the frailty of some elderly care services has left families unsupported. The global workforce crisis has been exposed, health inequalities amplified, and life expectancy arrested. Government debt has soared, and l

    The report makes the following recommendations: By 2022, there needs to be a multidisciplinary mental health workforce plan, alongside the refresh of the mental health strategy, that provides the staffing needed to provide care at the point of need. A guarantee mental health receives its share of Covid health funding, and that there is a longer-term assessment of what funding is needed to meet the mental health needs of all Scots. A national transitions strategy for our most vulnerable young people, ensuring they can transition into adulthood with the right care and support

    Climate change: a health emergency The NHS has a huge carbon footprint, producing around 25 million tonnes of carbon a year – equivalent to all the emissions from Sri Lanka! Carbon dioxide emissions attributable to the NHS in England are greater than the annual emissions of all the aircraft leaving Heathrow, and if healthcare was a country, it would be the fifth largest polluter! The NHS declared climate change, ‘a health emergency’ – it undermines the foundations of good health, deepens health inequalities and threatens to undermine the gains made in public health over the last 50 years.

    Key points The National Health Service (NHS) is in serious decline – struggling to recover from the devastating impact of the pandemic and Brexit. The issues are deep-seated and more extensive than the pandemic’s treatment backlog. The future sustainability of a tax-funded comprehensive NHS is now open to doubt. Throughout its history, the NHS has focused on treating ill-health, even as the disease profile of the UK has vastly changed. Rising demand will mean the NHS is unable to provide services to all, ushering in a two-tier health system that no longer provides free

    A drive to ‘transform’ access to urgent, emergency and planned care will be added to the goals of the NHS long-term plan, a document leaked to HSJ has revealed The long-term plan for the NHS was originally published in January 2019. Last September, NHS England said it was reviewing the commitments made within the plan, with senior officials warning that many of them could not be met after the damage of the pandemic. HSJ has seen a document prepared for the most recent meeting of the NHS Assembly which sets out NHSE’s approach to the refresh. Strategic developments expected incl

    Surgery waiting lists will triple by 2030, triggering a “population health crisis”, unless there is a huge increase in NHS capacity, according to new research. Experts from Birmingham University have said efforts to reduce hospital backlogs are not enough and that it is “impossible” for the existing frontline workers to tackle increasing waiting lists. The most in-depth analysis of the challenge facing hospital waiting lists in England has revealed 4.3 million people need invasive surgery or procedures such as endoscopy, the largest number since 2007. Of these, an estimated 3.3

    Public health officials have declared a national incident after routine surveillance of wastewater in north and east London found evidence of community transmission of poliovirus for the first time. The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said waste from the Beckton sewage treatment works in Newham tested positive for vaccine-derived poliovirus in February and that further positive samples had been detected since. No cases of the disease or related paralysis have been reported, and the risk to the general public is considered low, but public health officials urged people to make sure t
