The Media Bubble is Real — And Worse Than You Think - POLITICO Magazine
The national media really does work in a bubble, something that wasn’t true as recently as 2008. And the bubble is growing more extreme. Concentrated heavily along the coasts, the bubble is both geographic and political. If you’re a working journalist, odds aren’t just that you work in a pro-Clinton county—odds are that you reside in one of the nation’s most pro-Clinton counties. And you’ve got company: If you’re a typical reader of Politico, chances are you’re a citizen of bubbleville, too.

The “media bubble” trope might feel overused by critics of journalism who want to sneer at reporters who live in Brooklyn or California and don’t get the “real America” of southern Ohio or rural Kansas. But these numbers suggest it’s no exaggeration: Not only is the bubble real, but it’s more extreme than you might realize. And it’s driven by deep industry trends.

‘Get out of bed!’ scheme is more symptom than solution for the NHS | David Mitchell | Opinion | The Guardian
[ rationing beds, allocating beds, giving beds, only to the most sickest, and most sickest in need ] The principle that people who have been hospitalised should restart normal life as soon as they can is already well established. So it’s suspicious that a campaign exclusively pushing the idea of getting up and going home should coincide so precisely with the NHS’s dire shortage of money. It feels like a treatment it’s financially convenient to prescribe.

Why axeing 18-week surgery target won't create more capacity in A&E | Healthcare Professionals Network | The Guardian
[ Doctoring on the fringes ] Second, most hospitals have already scaled back their elective work over the crucial winter period. Indeed, they were formally instructed to do so by NHS Improvement. Relaxing the elective surgery target won’t create much extra winter capacity as it has already largely been freed up anyway.

GP practices close in record numbers - BBC News
https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/apr/07/record-number-gp-practices-close-nhs - Record numbers of GP practices closed last year, forcing around 265,000 patients to move, data suggests.
A Freedom of Information request by Pulse magazine revealed 57 practices closed in 2016, with a further 34 shutting because of practice mergers.
The Royal College of GPs said doctors could no longer cope with growing patient demand without more funding.

Blueprint for future of NHS in Scotland published - BBC News
The public spending watchdog also said the health service needed to make unprecedented savings next year, and that NHS funding was not keeping pace with increasing demand on the service.
The government's Health and Social Services delivery plan said Scotland needed a "fundamental move" away from a "fix and treat" approach.
Instead, the focus will be on preventing people becoming ill in the first place, and then intervening as quickly as possible to prevent their conditions becoming more serious.

System for rationing NHS care developed for Scottish boards | Scotland | The Times & The Sunday Times
A scoring system for rationing hospital and social care is being developed for care boards in Scotland.

The £250,000 initiative, similar to that used by drugs watchdogs, will pay for a team of economists to create a framework that the NHS and councils can use to decide where to cut funding in services and where to invest.

The move, supported by the Chief Scientist Office, is part of the drive to shift spending away from hospitals into the community to prevent ill health and look after the frail elderly better in their own homes.

Public health cuts will lead to more sick people, report warns | Society | The Guardian
More people will become ill as a direct result of the government cutting spending on public health, which will put the NHS under further strain, a parliamentary report on Wednesday warns.

Peers on a House of Lords select committee urged citizens to do more to demonstrate personal responsibility – their “common duty” – to live healthily in order to help preserve the NHS as a tax-funded system that is free at the point of use. [...] The committee, which includes both Labour and Conservative former health ministers, recommends ministers launch a nationwide campaign to highlight the risks to health of being overweight. [...] An overhaul of the constitution is needed “as part of a renewed and sustained drive to improve health literacy and educate the public about their common duty to support the sustainability of the health service”, they add.
