Miliband: Cancer patients to be seen in 7 days under Labour 2015 election rules

Caring health hero Miliband to raise importance of saving potential Cancer sufferers

ff labour mili cancer copy

Labour leader Ed Miliband has pledged to save the National Health Service (NHS) from Conservative plans to privatise the service past 2015. Privatisation in Tory minds is to sell portions of the service off to the highest bidder, akin to three Royal Mail blunder which saw the Tories sell the service. Shareholders of the public taxpayer received a measly amount multiple times less than originally forecast as part of the Tories ‘great economic plan’ which they claim is ‘working’ every time.

Services have suffered with numerous scandals involving dying children, mistreating of patients, hospital care occurring in corridors and left to die and social care failures under Tory rule. Multiple scandals occurred and were hushed up though some have been exposed under the Tory failures.

Now, in plans to save the NHS for the better, Labour plan to have cancer patients seen within seven days, instead of two week referrals. The two week referrals, which are to usher in cancer patients or suspected cases within two weeks, were quietly put back to four weeks, increasing the chance of contracting cancer. The sickening disease has soared since 2010’s Conservative government, alongside bureaucratic paperwork conflicting the workload of GP’s, doctors and hospital administrators dealing with cases.

Labour and its leader, Ed Miliband will change that for the better to one week instead.

Immigrants, welfare claimants and the elderly are at the most vulnerable to the Tory plans to introduce health insurance plans in accordance with privatisation. If you do not have health service, you will die. Upon entering A and E (Accident and Emergency) two years ago, migrants were asked for their credit details whilst on a trolley, foretold by a UK newspaper. The government have influenced journalists to ‘hush up’ and keep quiet not to look bad.

The government previously launched a disastrous racist campaign with billboard vans driving around London telling non-UK nationals to “go home” which is a racist term if mentioned to a minority in the street of race, gender, overseas nationality or sexuality. The planned to roll it out in the country until noble citizens of the UK opposed the racist motion.

If elected at May 2015, Labour will make this one of their key imperatives in their election manifesto.

Brave Boys battle Cancer with Cock in a Sock craze

The newest craze for charity is sweeping the globe. After the recent weeks seeing mass highlights of breast charities among others, a new one has steeped up to the plate.

Bearing a broad mind, Instagram has been host to a number of uploaded images to support the charity cause, Balls to Cancer. Men of all ages, particularly the age bracket it most affects, have began posting snaps wearing a ‘C*ck in a Sock.’

balls

Done all in good taste for the charity guys aim to help raise awareness of the male problem, which affects 20 to 39 year olds in the US and UK.

75-80,000 cases are diagnosed in the United States each year. The UK average is roughly 2000.

Even older gents are getting in on the action. No one at FalseFabs has decided to adopt the policy however, we support the cause. We cannot stress the importance for guys to head to the local doctor or health service to get checked and dealt with. The quicker dealt with the more likely the help is available to treat it. With men having a difficult time discussing such issues with doctor’s hopefully this will help to ease the predicament of discussing private parts in intimate settings.

We’re not going to show the snaps on here, although we could, we respect the privacy of users and would politely seek their approval, though most media will grab anything for a peek. That’s not what it’s about. Plus we haven’t had the time to ask others for their approval to use the images in this context. Though we have scoured a couple of images that are our favourites and hope the cart-wheeler doesn’t mind the use. If they do, contact us and we shall remove it for you.

NHS Patient records to be viewed by anyone. Must opt-out TODAY only!

In exclusive details passed to us by an anonymous source, the NHS are set to launch a electronic shift of all patient information to a database called SPINE, without informing the public.

Under the Health and Social Care act, your patient records will be available to ANYONE to read including pharmacists and receptionists not medically trained.

health_and_social_care_button_copy

In a spineless move by the UK government, all patient details will be uploaded to the secret database WITHOUT consent from patients in order to keep tabs on their medical histories.

Patients are able to “opt out” of the initiative by the end of OCTOBER 2013. (That’s by today.)

The government have kept these initiatives to peruse private information of medical records as a secret from all national press and have not informed the public, either.

How to opt out

Head to your GP (General Practitioner/Doctor) and hand in a letter detailing you wish to opt out. Many templates can be found at this website with numerous formats available.

A template of the text, added here, can be used below. (Add the address and date at the top right of corner)

Exercising right to opt out

Dear Doctor,

As you are probably aware, the Government is intending to ask you to transfer the electronic medical records of your patients onto a national database called the “spine”. They intend you to do this without first seeking the consent of your patients. It is BMA policy that patients should give their individual consent prior to their information being transferred on to the national database.

There are substantial concerns about the privacy and confidentiality of information transferred onto the national database, not least because promised software security safeguards called “sealed envelopes” will not be in place and because the patient’s instructions with regard to who may access the records can be overridden. I do not believe that such a large database, with so many staff users, can be regarded as secure.

I would be grateful if you would ensure that none of my records held by you are entered onto the national system.  Would you please also file or scan a copy of this letter in my records and also record my dissent by entering the “Read code” – ‘93C3. – Refused consent for upload to national shared electronic record.’ into my computer record. I am aware of the implications of this request and will notify you should I change my mind.

This request is itself confidential. Please do not divulge my decision, in an identifiable manner, to anyone other than to clinicians who are providing care to me and who might otherwise place information about me on the national care records service.

To confirm, I do not wish for my details to be shared onto the system, by my GP’s under any circumstances and my confirmation should also be sought beforehand.

Further information for GPs is available online at http://www.TheBigOptOut.org/for_GPs

Yours sincerely,

The Week in Media, The Sun, Camden Journal and Evening Standard

Every week we plan to have a brief perusal of the media, mostly newspapers, that have been making the stories, and actually asking if this is really journalism at its finest, for you, the very public it intends to serve. Going through with a fine toothcomb to what consists of reality and whether newspaper hacks are inadequate in gauging public opinion and newsworthy topics, or whether it’s just utter tosh to help politicians in their idealistic and segregated view of what the real world is, to which the people they claim to serve consist. This week’s offerings mostly come from the glorious ball in the sky as our shining beacon of light, The Sun. However this week, we’ve spoiled you with more than one day!

Newspapers

Peel back the skins

In the Wednesday Feb 20th edition a new healthy scare was unveiled.

Eating Chips once a week increases cancer by a third for men, “scientists say.” In an excerpt from the article – “A single portion every seven days may heighten the danger of prostate cancer by 30 to 37 per cent, according to a new study.”

French Fries

Did you know?, in Great Britain, it can cost up to 69 to 70 pence to import an apple. To secure a chip into our society it can cost as little as SEVEN (7p) pence. With the rise of cancer and the cheapness of imported food, and the myth of five fruits and vegetables a day is a healthier option, as those are costly to bring into the country than the ‘bad’ foods, surely this is a question for the government and its failings to support healthy living and then ‘blame it on the fatties’ later after plumping us up to drive economy for supermarkets forward on cheap produce?

What people will instantly say is “don’t eat them.” Is it really that simple? With budgeting and costly supermarkets alongside welfare cuts and timing for families unable to cook properly due to working all hours for a minor wage or on benefits to scrap the barrels feeling this is the only option as you can buy chips in bulk?

Contostavlos Canned by Cowell!

From Friday’s juicy offering Tulisa Contostavlos has finally been fired from the UK X Factor. Her time on the show was clearly over, but show executive Simon Cowell decided to remove the twenty-four year old from the judging panel. With a place open, and rumours rife, below is the list of X-ies possibly waiting in the wings.

tulisa shine

Mel B was intended to join the panel, though has signed to Australian X Factor and also takes the place of the former female judge on America’s Got Talent, joining Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

This has left Sharon Osbourne, a former original on X Factor, at a loose end. Many fans feel Cowell is lining Mrs.O up for the job. We shall have more on this in a coming X Factor stratagem soon, though Sharon Osbourne’s time has passed on this show and would be extremely catastrophic to return.

Rita Ora took a guest spot on the show last year after having one single. She has gone on to have a few more number one singles, of which the show loves to grab as an in-house uplifting of the show’s credentials for headline status which is redundant. It does not heighten the show. As for Ora, dubbed “Rita Whora” last year for allegedly cheating on Robert Kardashian did not gather favour as X Factor assumes. She would not be a good fit, but Cowell is desperate for a female, young and vibrant. Ora is 22.

Cowell has also said to “fight tooth and nail” to allow long-time pal Louis Walsh to remain on the show despite show producers eager to let Louis leave to reform the flagging TV series. Walsh has remained on the panel since its birth in 2003 as this year will be the tenth anniversary. Louis has previously been given the worst categories every year and usually crashes out of the completion first with no acts for weeks continuing into the live shows. It is clearly time for Walsh to go, however Simon Cowell has an unknown favour for his friend who has been carried every year, allowed to make nasty, “bitchy” and aggressive snipes at contestants and votes politically to maintain his acts for his own ego.

ITV exec’s wish for Gary Barlow to remain. Barlow is seen as the noble, honest deliverance on screen. He gets some lines from FalseFabs too. 😀

There is one sadness in Tulisa’s demise. While her fag end has been stubbed out, we won’t have anymore “fag ash breath” to muse over!

Liberal Good-bye?

Browsing through The Camden Journal, (Feb 21st) on interesting story was the Liberal Democrat MP Emily Frith who has lost her seat for Hampstead and Kilburn “weeks after she was selected for the seat.”

She opted to take a new position in government civil service with the pre-requisite barring her from running for political office.

It comes amid a murky week of Lib Dems, with the fewest MPs falling in record numbers since the coalition in 2010 down to 57. Chris Huhne’s abdication recently and Nick Clegg suffering with party member Lord Rennard’s sexual allegations from inside the party from females has severely fractured the Lib Dem’s who lost immense support by dismissing their manifesto when going to former a coalition government with the Conservative Party.

Dave disses BBC over candidate absence

Following this in Thursday’s Evening Standard, is Conservative Party henchman David Cameron claiming the BBC “behaved badly” after the Eastleigh by-election candidate missed the debate. Stating the BBC was “stupid” the Prime Minister, who has appeared on the BBC platform numerous times through his candidacy and elected role, and as his primary focus for news over other media outlets said of the missing candidate “Maria Hutchings will be an absolutely first class MP for Eastleigh. She is a local mother of four.” In an except from the paper “Mrs Hutchings is an outspoken figure whose views are at odds with those of Mr Cameron on Europe, abortion and gay marriage.” After a worker asked a question Cameron joked on an issue of money given to alcoholics. Cam said “I think I have found my new welfare minister here.”

To finally end the lunacy of the week’s media was an exclusive! Read all about it, read all about it! Major Headline news! The Sun on Sunday delivered a sterling front page. Cheryl Cole’s ARSE! Wow. Fascinating. Cheryl’s derriere made mainstream news. Charming. Certainly a way to end on a, ahem, bum note.

World Aids Day

World Aids Day

waday

World Aids Day begins on 1st December 2012

With a rapid increase in the contraction of the disease, it has never been more crucial to get yourself checked.

Getting checked is easy. Why don’t they get checked?

Some assume many are lazy and this may be true to an extent but not fully as numbers are high in those undiagnosed, meaning those who haven’t gotten checked are carriers and unaware they may be spreading to others.

Some who won’t get tested out of pride or think to themselves they wont have caught it, you may not have, but if you have had unprotected sex a number of times, and in a short space of time, go and get checked, it shan’t take long and will help you in the long run and support society and the world.

Show your support by wearing a red ribbon.

If you have unprotected sex, you could be at higher risk along with numerous unknowing they may have it, should seek help or advice. Go to your local GUM clinic or even a GP (Doctor) and talk with them on your concerns. As anyone knows, the quicker something is diagnosed (or ruled out) the quicker its dealt with, the faster help and support will be available to you to make life easier. You can still live a full and healthy life.

Myths that “all gay men” are the “scourge” that host this STI is exactly that, a myth.

Health authorities, governments and nurses express that men sleeping with men and African American/Black ethnic groups are most at risk and need to get tested if having a fuller sex life.

These are not the only groups who are assumed to be dirty and bad for having sex, but do have it responsibly. Those who assume this are the one’s (as I have been informed by sources from gay communities as well as Black communities) who blindly donate the aids epidemic and blame the obvious two groups because aids began in the media with black men from Africa and homosexual men as the first few publicly announced to bear the bug.

Many forget that in Africa, young children are born with it after sexual abuse, manly rape, to their mothers by callous men who know they are infected and couldn’t care less of spreading such infection.

If you are pregnant and have unprotected sex with one or numbers of men you don’t know off, or have before falling pregnant, get checked as you or your child could be at risk.

Some partners also cheat on their spouses/significant others so those who cheat could contract and then bring it back home to you by sleeping with you to cover their tracks from affairs and “make up” with a seemingly loving romantic liaison.

If the world works together, and the public complies with screenings and testing, then eventually, the world may be able to lower the numbers and risk of spreading the epidemic with co-operation.

Over 100,000 people in the UK are living with HIV, but a quarter do not know they have it – that is 25,000 people who are not benefiting from treatment and are increasing the risk of passing the virus on.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) state one in 20 men who have sex with men in the UK now have HIV, and the figure soars to nearly one in 12 in London.

This of course, is just one statistic of an increasing rise of all groups.

elton john aids foundation

The key note to understand, first and foremost is that anyone from any group can contract, even Women. There is no shame in getting checked, and with the rates of “it only takes one” to pass it on, testing is crucial.

We live in a world where most of us are uneducated about the infection and its solution which is why it is important to take an interest and think rather than assume and blame as there is no judgment on lack of education on such subject. You can easily say it doesn’t affect you, but anyone could transfer it without you knowing, as well as loved ones you care for.

The most important to take from this is to use a condom. This increases safety and you can have sex responsibly.

Remember, having a sex life is all well and good but do so responsibly.

If you liked it, then you should’ve put a bag on it…
