Message from the Editor

Last week the MEDTEC UK 2009 exhibition held at NEC in Birmingham proved a positive experience.  The confident air of many of the show's exhibitors and visitors suggested that despite the general downturn in the global economy the medical device technology sector was still seeing growth. 

It will be interesting to see if that confidence is reflected in the mood at the HC 2009 healthcare informatics event that takes place in Harrogate, Yorkshire during the last week of April.  Is the whole healthcare industry moving forward or are there areas that are finding this Credit Crunch era is applying a brake to investment and growth?

Judging by the number of news releases we keep receiving it looks like there are an awful lot of people out there working on ways to identify, analyse, diagnose or prevent Mexican swine flu.  So perhaps it is timely that Prohealthservicezone's Focus Zone Report later this month is our Focus on Laboratory and Analytical and I promise we will be looking at a broad range of topics related to medical laboratory activities and not just those that relate to Mexican swine flu.

What a rarity, a Bank Holiday weekend in which the sun actually came out (well for most of us anyway).  A welcome change but for health professionals the sun coming out is a reminder that the new phenomenon of binge tanning has caused the number of Britons diagnosed with the deadliest form of skin cancer to top 10,000 each year.

Cancer Research UK predicts the number of people diagnosed with malignant melanoma will rise to more than 15,500 by 2024.  This would make malignant melanoma the fourth most common cancer among men and women in the UK.

In the last 30 years rates of the cancer have more than quadrupled, from 3.4 cases per 100,000 people in 1977 to 14.7 per 100,000 in 2006.  Health warnings do not seem to working then and this week the UK public showed it was deeply sceptical about scientific claims for what causes or prevents cancer.

A recent YouGov survey of 2,400 people for the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) found more than half thought scientists were always changing their minds.  And more than a quarter said health advice changed constantly and the best approach was to ignore it completely despite the fact that scientists believe about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented through eating a healthy, balanced diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight.

Well here at Prohealthservicezone we have not changed our minds so Prohealthservicezone's Focus Zone Report later this month remains our Focus on Laboratory and Analytical.   Topics to be covered in the Focus Zone Report will be developments relating to analytical equipment, laboratory information management systems, assay equipment and laboratory automation systems.

A few months ago, the Government and the Treasury declared that Life Sciences form the largest sector within the gross domestic product (GDP) of the UK.

The Government says it recognises Life Sciences as one of the three most important drivers of economic growth in Britain.

A significant proposal of crucial initiatives that the Government can implement to make an immediate impact on the prosperity of the Life Science sector will be delivered to the Office of Life Sciences (OLS) at the end of this month.

Commenting on this topic MedilinkWM’s Chief Executive Officer Tony Davis said this week: “The Government has set us an urgent challenge, so we’ve responded immediately by asking industry for its views and ideas. We have just days until our roundtable reviews the suggestions so far and draws up an official proposal for Government - let's make sure they know what SMEs really need to thrive. It’s essential that every professional working in this sector looks at what the Government could do to make it easier for them to grow their business and unleash their entrepreneurial flair.”

“This sector has the potential to receive an influx of investment to ensure some short-term success stories and positive stories about the economy. I’ve been working to ensure that SMEs can benefit from this investment and become a strong success story themselves. The Voices of Industry campaign is here to give businesses an influential voice that reflects their combined strength and economic importance. ”

Earlier this month a Pandora's Box was opened by Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust which appears to have handed redundancy notices to its entire electronic patient record team as the Trust prepares to implement a Cerner system with IT support from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre (UPMC).

Royal Berkshire has left the National Programme for IT in the NHS to deal with UPMC, which is already delivering a Cerner system to Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Royal Berkshire claimed it could not wait any longer for the national programme, which has been without a local service provider for the South cluster since Fujitsu exited in May 2008.

Time will tell whether Royal Berkshire has made the correct decision for patients but it is hard to see how why IT staff from the USA should be drafted in to replace UK personnel.  Is it a sign of things to come elsewhere in the UK or a major blunder?

This month NHS managers in England are been warned about over-optimistic financial plans at a time when public finances are likely to squeeze health budgets.

The regulator of foundation trusts, Monitor, has given chief executives until the end of September 2009 to draw up more realistic financial plans.

In all, 115 trusts forecast a growth in their income of 4.2 percent in 2009-10, 2.1 percent in 2010-11 and 1.6 percent in 2011-12.

The Government’s Department of Health has said the NHS would always be an investment priority.

However, a joint report from the Kings Fund and Institute for Fiscal Studies spells out that the window of opportunity in which funding for the health service remains relatively generous is likely to be no more than one or two years.

The Conservatives are already promising huge cost savings for the NHS by scrapping government plans for a central database of patient records.  They propose electronic medical notes being stored locally by GPs and hospitals and patients having online access to their medical records.

It looks that healthcare funding is once again going to be at the forefront of the campaigning for the next General Election.
