    Researchers are calling on five million UK adults to join what they hope will be one of the biggest studies in the world, to create the most detailed picture ever of the nation's health. The aim is it to find better ways to prevent, spot and treat illnesses like cancer and dementia early on. It will involve collecting health and genetic data and creating a long-term repository of health information. Our Future Health is part-funded by government, industry and charities. They hope to get their first set of results in the next few years. Chairman of the programme, Prof Sir John Be

    The blood-donation service has been inundated with offers of help after putting out an alert, on Wednesday, warning NHS stocks were running critically low in England. More than 10,000 appointments to donate blood over the next few weeks have been booked in the past 24 hours. The NHS usually has six days' worth of blood to use for operations and transfusions but levels are currently due to fall below two. Type-O blood is in particular demand. O positive is the most common and anyone can receive O negative in an emergency or if their blood type is unknown. Blood supplies have

    Volunteers will transport patients who need extra assistance to hospital to increase ambulance availability for higher-risk patients. The pilot scheme, using ambulance cars, is due to start in London in May. London Ambulance Service said the trained volunteers would be sent to lower category 999 calls where the patient needed help to get to hospital. The service's board meeting was told the scheme would reduce waiting times and increase ambulance availability. Currently, taxis are used to transport "low acuity patients" to hospital, the meeting heard. But there were so

    Not enough people understand what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s. They don’t know it’s a serious condition. They don’t realise that treatments are limited and that there is no cure.

Key facts about Parkinson’s you might not know Parkinson's is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. There are over 40 symptoms.

    When I was a teenager our psychology teacher asked the class if any of us had a word or phrase that really frightened us. A big burly man in his fifties, the teacher openly shared that his dreaded words were “heart attack.” Apparently, whenever he heard someone say this phrase his heart would start pounding and he’d break out into a sweat. He was terrified of the concept. Somehow this brought me comfort. I knew immediately that mine was “cancer.” Up until that moment I thought I was the only person in the world to be frightened merely by a word. I’d lived in mortal fear of this disease ev

    A new volunteering programme is aiming to bring trained volunteers into the homes of older patients to provide one-to-one support. The Falls Prevention Community Exercise Volunteers programme is being run by the volunteering service at Kingston Hospital NHS FT, which is funded by the volunteering organisation Helpforce and the Kingston Hospital Charity.

    Picker Institute Europe reviewed the quality of patient engagement in primary care, how to measure it, and developments in patient involvement in primary care. Part of this paper considered three examples of notable practice in involving patients in the development of their general practice services. These were not selected because they were ‘typical’ but because they demonstrated, in some depth, a variety of approaches to patient involvement. The first example looked at two health centres with patient forums. One forum was more formal, with designated officers and control of the ag
