Surrey LINk Health and Social Care Bulletin (The HSCB): 5 As the past fortnight has been relatively quiet I thought it would be useful to trail some forth coming events and take a look at health matters accessed on the Internet. Andrew Lansley on Radio 4
The Radio 4 PM programme will be running a series of interviews
with the Health Minster Andrew Lansley from Monday 17th
January. These of course will be worth listening to. However I will
be doing a synopsis for distribution if you don’t get the opportunity
Health in the News
As more and more people are using the internet to access
information on Health it may be interesting to look at what the key
news stories online were this week (week commencing 10th
January) and what information people are looking for. This week -
according to Search Medica the Medical Search Engine
(www.searchmedica.com) - the top medical stories were:
- The Government review could strip GP’s of Flu vaccine
- Concern over contraceptive implant unfounded.
- GP’s warned over opioid cardiovascular risk.
- GP colonoscopy screening 'prevents 80% of cancers'.
- MHRA warns of elderly 'over-prescribing'.
Under the heading ‘What People want to Know’ Searchmedica lists
these questions as the most searched for medical related topics
- Will statins help control my high blood pressure?
For the full page and weblinks please go to
Care Quality Commission (CQC) - Review of Services for People who have had a Stroke and their Carers.
Also this week the CQC has published the results of their review
into ‘stroke care’. Whilst the full report and is easy to access the
CQC website carries a succinct press release that acts as an
‘executive summary’ of the report. The website has also separated
the results into ‘summary reports designed for people who have
had a stroke and their carers’ and ‘detailed assessment reports
intended for professionals involved in stroke care’. If you need
straight forward headline results then I recommend going to the
‘summary reports designed for people who have had a stroke and
their carers’. These reports are also broken down geographically
so you can get straight to the Surrey information.

Please remember that whilst it is always tempting to ‘red pen’ any communication that is asking for feedback, what is of most value is comment on the content, language and style of the bulletin rather than just a simple list of ‘typos’ or personal grammatical Whilst every effort is made to keep this information contemporary it can only be accurate at the time of going to press. This bulletin is either articles or highlighted information and as such offers my own critical perspective on the last fortnight’s news within Health and Social Care. All articles are referenced with either weblinks to the article or Harvard style references to a book or magazine.
