The NHS must follow the lead of driverless cars and embrace technology - even if it doesn't work perfectly, the Health Secretary has said. Matt Hancock urged GPs to do more to adopt innovations such as virtual consultations via video, and the use of artificial intelligence. The minister, who became Health Secretary in July, personally uses an app called “GP at Hand” which uses artificial intelligence to assess symptoms and offers smartphone consultations. Last month he criticised NHS attempts to block use of such schemes, saying every patient should be able to benefit from such services. This fuelled a backlash from some GPs who said the service run by private healthcare firm Babylon has not been properly evaluated, with fears its systems could miss serious symptoms. Now Mr Hancock has told a Conservative fringe meeting that the NHS cannot afford to wait before rolling out new technology, suggested that delays could carry greater risks. “People say … … [Read more...] about NHS must follow the lead of driverless cars and embrace technology – even if it doesn’t work perfectly, Health Secretary says

Sebastian Vettel bounced back from a hydraulic leak in FP1 to take top spot in FP2, but it was not without its dramas on Friday afternoon. The German set the fastest time around the Monza circuit, but went on to spin at the final corner towards the end of the session. He was able to get out of the gravel trap and limp back to the pit lane without too much damage to his Ferrari. The four-time World Champion admitted that the spin was his own fault, and not the car’s, though. “Overall it was OK. This morning was a bit difficult to read the conditions,” Vettel said about the issue in FP1. “We had a small problem, but this afternoon it was OK. “The small problem was more my side, I lost some track time because I pushed maybe a bit too hard,” he added about the spin in the afternoon session. “But equally it’s good to find out. The car seemed to be OK. The most important was that we could still carry on and still gather some data.” Vettel … [Read more...] about Vettel knows ‘what doesn’t work’ after FP2 spin

Keith Roach To You Health Published 11:04 p.m. UTC Jun 5, 2018 Dear Dr. Roach: I am a patient with myelofibrosis, and have been under treatment for over three years. At one time I was receiving blood transfusions every three weeks and taking Jakafi (very expensive) to stabilize my hemoglobin and platelet levels, and Exjade to get rid of excess iron caused by frequent transfusions. Although my hemoglobin is low (average 7.5 to 8.5), I am able to function quite well. My condition is now reasonably stable, and the only medication I receive is an injection of Procrit once a week to assist my bone marrow in producing more hemoglobin. Transfusions are now infrequent, and I am a lucky man. There is an alternate injection drug available called darbepoetin (Aranesp), which requires injection only every three to four weeks. The problem is that I cannot get any of my doctors to prescribe this drug, even though it is similar to Procrit and probably cheaper, because “they have an … [Read more...] about Doc: Drug arrangement doesn’t work for Procrit patient
