Lung cancer: the UK needs more resources

Infectious diseases: defeating superbugs with surveillance

The UK also provided the smallest number of individual hospital responses to the survey of antibiotic-resistant S. aureus, which is a significant cause of death in hospital patients. Meanwhile, Sweden provided the highest response rate and one of the lowest infection rates. While this may be coincidence, it seems to imply that improved surveillance is the best way to defeat the problem.

Allergies: nothing to sneeze at

The continuing rise in the prevalence of allergic diseases, such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and eczema, will place considerable strain on the NHS in the UK.

Corporate sector will drive UK health insurance market

New Datamonitor research finds the individual private medical insurance market sustained its seventh consecutive years of falling numbers. There were 82,000 fewer individual policyholders in 2003 compared to 1999. There is little doubt that ever-increasing premiums have suppressed demand, driving some consumers to give up their cover and preventing others from taking it out in the first place.
