Given the Five Year Forward View’s statement that the NHS ‘needs to get serious about prevention’ one might think that the question of a responsibility to prevent would be relatively simple to answer. But returning to the document two years after publication, it seems slightly less straight forward.

With the junior doctors’ strike finally drawing to a diplomatic conclusion, the Secretary of State may have pulled off one of the more costly “victories” in recent political history. Junior doctors are set to ratify a new contract, ostensibly guaranteeing a new “seven-day” service, but at great cost to Jeremy Hunt’s reputation and quite possibly his political career.

It is 41 years since I voted for the first time in the referendum on our membership of the European Economic Community, called by a Labour Prime Minister to try and keep his fractious party together. While I cannot recall the reasons that I supported staying in, the facts suggest that I made the right decision, happily reflected in the result nationwide.

The recent elections in the devolved regions haven’t captured much attention in the health sector. It’s easy to forget, with so much going on with DevoManc, that 10 million people in the UK already have health systems that are devolved to an even greater extent. Different health policies are being tried and tested around the UK so there are opportunities for everyone to learn a lot, if they’re willing to listen.

JMC is excited to be moving to our new offices at 85 Gresham Street today!
After four years in Covent Garden, our growing team now needs bigger office space and our new offices beside Guildhall offer us this in spades, with new meeting spaces and breakout areas.
If you are near the City and have a moment to spare, do pop in to see us for a coffee.

It is widely agreed that data and information are central to an effective health system. From an organisational perspective, data on services, outcomes and pricing help to inform commissioning decisions and encourage benchmarking to drive improvements in services. The challenge comes when data quality or coverage falls short – how can commissioners, providers and service planners make robust decisions without having comprehensive information to hand?
