The NHS will move towards routine services being available 7 days a week. This is essential to offer a much more patient-focused service and also offers the opportunity to improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs.
The offer above, made in the 2013/14 NHS England planning guidance, commits the NHS to work towards the routine delivery of services seven days a week. Disturbing figures released recently show that if the same standard of care could be provided 7 days a week, more than 4,400 lives could be saved each year.
It is clear therefore that the health and care system needs to change and embrace seven day working. This conference has been developed to help you deliver 7 day working, both within your Trust and across the whole local care system.
Shifting the NHS and care system to seven day working will present enormous challenges, particularly given current levels of resource and demand. The NHS Medical Director is currently leading a Forum to explore the delivery of 7 day working, which will be reporting its findings in the autumn. Their recommendations will be explored within this important new conference.
The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges is also continuing to work on its standards for the delivery of 7 day Consultant Present Care. This important new conference will allow you to hear all the latest guidance on the delivery of 7 day working. It will also however deliver practical case studies from priority clinical areas, so that you can benefit from their experience in delivering change on the ground.

The purpose of the CALGB 9343 study was to determine whether there is a benefit to adjuvant radiation therapy after breast-conserving therapy for a population of older women with small ER-positive breast cancers who will be treated with adjuvant endocrine therapy for 5 years.
Women over the age of 70 years with early ER-positive invasive breast cancer (tumor measuring no more than 2 cm) and clinically negative axillae were enrolled between 1994 and 1999. A total of 636 participants with stage I breast cancer who were all treated with lumpectomy (auxiliary exploration was left to the discretion of the treating surgeon) were randomly assigned to receive tamoxifen plus radiation therapy or tamoxifen alone. Primary endpoints were time to local or regional recurrence, frequency of mastectomy, breast cancer-specific survival, time to distant metastasis, and overall survival.
After a median follow-up of 12.6 years, investigators found no significant differences in time to mastectomy, time to distant recurrence, breast cancer-specific survival, or overall survival. At 10 years, 98% of patients who received dual-modality therapy were free from loco regional recurrence as compared with 90% in the group treated with tamoxifen alone. In the group that received tamoxifen alone, 42 of 319 women relapsed, compared with 23 of 317 in the group that received tamoxifen plus radiation therapy. More women in the tamoxifen group had local and regional relapses and were treated with surgery or radiation at the time of relapse. There was no significant difference in the number of distant relapses between the 2 treatment groups.
After long-term follow-up, there remains a benefit in terms of reduction of local recurrence for patients receiving tamoxifen plus radiation therapy. This does not translate into a survival advantage, however, and does not affect the rate of distant metastases. These findings allow physicians and patients a legitimate option to minimize treatment at the time of breast cancer diagnosis
CALGB 9343 is a now a mature study and confirms the earlier findings that endocrine therapy alone after breast conservation is a reasonable option for women over the age of 70 with small, node-negative, ER-positive tumors. Hughes and colleagues' study has influenced treatment guidelines and ought to be discussed with patients who would have met the entry criteria for this randomized controlled trial. The study results do not reassure us of the safety of this minimalist approach for women with biologically aggressive tumors such as those with concomitant over expression of HER2. In an accompanying editorial by Smith and Buchholz, we are reminded of the importance of considering other pertinent factors, such as the patient's life expectancy, co morbid illnesses, and tumor-specific criteria (e.g., grade, presence of lymph vascular invasion, and margin assessment).
As we reflect on the implications of this landmark study on practice, we need to consider the likelihood of whether an individual patient will actually adhere to a recommendation for lengthy endocrine treatment (the Hughes study assumes that women will take 5 years of tamoxifen), which is associated with cost and side effects. Another consideration is that we now have newer, more convenient strategies to deliver radiation using abbreviated and "personalized" schedules than were available when the Hughes study began, and these options make it easier for older women to bear radiation therapy. For women 70 years of age who are fit and have a life expectancy of 10 years or more, an appropriate approach may be an abbreviated schedule of radiation and adjuvant endocrine therapy. Clearly, we now have more breast cancer treatment options for older patients, and our challenge is to apply the available evidence wisely to best meet the needs of each individual patient.

The Morcellex Sigma Tissue Morcellator is designed for challenging cases with safety and control in mind. The new device features a new gearing system designed to help surgeons through long and challenging cases, a new trigger mechanism designed to improve ergonomics, and other improvements. Visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfE0VzOLxRI to watch a video of Dr. Randell using the Morcellex.
"Offering my patients the safest and least invasive surgery has always been my goal," said Dr. Randell. "Today, with the use of the daVinci robot and devices like the Morcellex Sigma Tissue Morcellator, women can have their fibroids removed safely, through a few small incisions. This allows for a woman to keep her uterus and return to normal activity soon after the surgery while experiencing quick healing and less pain.
Dr. Randell, who performed his 800th robotic procedure on Friday, August 9th, and has performed more than 2,000 laparoscopic surgeries, is on the cutting edge of minimally invasive surgery. In 2010, Dr. Randell performed the first single incision hysterectomy at Northside Hospital using only one small incision. In 2011, Dr. Randell performed the Hospital's first tubal ligation reversal surgery using the daVinci robot resulting in a successful pregnancy and the delivery of a heathy baby. Last year he performed the Hospital's first fibroid removal using the new MyoSure XL device from Hologic.
"I am always looking for innovative devices that allow me to do more for my patients through minimally invasive surgery," said Dr. Randell.
Fibroids are very common. They occur in 2 or 3 out of every 10 women over the age of 35. They occur most often in women between the ages of 30 and 50, although some women in their 20s sometimes have them. Fibroids can cause pain, abnormal bleeding, infertility, and other symptoms.
Dr. Randell, who is a leading expert in fibroid surgery, is on the cutting edge of minimally invasive surgery. His website www.fibroidsatlanta.com provides detailed information about the services he provides to women with fibroids.
"Unfortunately, many women are unaware of the newest surgical techniques available to them to remove fibroids " said Dr. Randell. "Minimally invasive surgery is better for patients. This can be done as an outpatient and patients can return to their normal routine much quicker."
In addition to taking care of patients, Dr. Randell is an instructor to other surgeons locally and across the country on robotic surgery. Last year he was invited to speak at the International Congress of Minimally Invasive Gynecology/Urology Symposium. The event featured experts from around the world. Dr. Randell lectured on robotic myomectomy techniques that he has perfected. He also teaches at advanced robotic surgery courses.
Dr. Randell recommends that women needing gynecologic surgery should seek out a well trained and experienced laparoscopic or robotic surgeon. Dr. Randell suggests using internet search engines, hospital referral services, and asking other doctors for recommendations.

1. Know the signs and symptoms
A very frequent infection of transmitted partner a man can meet these days is the clap. Although most men have heard of him, few would know what to look for or what to do if symptoms were present. Part of being proactive about its health is informed. Information is key and know the symptoms means a greater likelihood seeking treatment early, and prevent the spread of the infection to her partner.
Unfortunately, the clap can be particularly difficult to diagnose, because some individuals with infection without having any symptoms. This means more easily, they transmit the infection to a partner - as they may be unaware that they are carrying it until their partner becomes symptomatic. For this reason, it is important to know the symptoms that are experienced by men and women, as an individual in society of persons may be asymptomatic and still infect the other.
Symptoms are most likely to arise from 2 to 10 days after exposure, but can take up to 30 days in some cases.
Symptoms experienced by men
· Discharge - often coloured green-yellow or white in color
· Burning during urination
· Tender, swollen reproductive glands
· Burning of the throat or swollen glands in the throat, caused by oral contact with an infected partner
Symptoms experienced by women
Female discharge - often of color green-yellow or white in color
Burning during urination
Bleeding outside of menstrual periods
Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic pain
Swelling of the female body
Spotting or light bleeding after intimate contact
Red eyes that sting - also known as conjunctivitis
Burning of the throat or swollen glands in the throat, caused by oral contact with an infected partner
2 Know what to expect of the appointment of a doctor
For those who are symptomatic, it may be apparent to the doctor what is happening, but always will be diagnosed by a swab test. People who are asymptomatic, but have experienced a recent exposure or simply to be tested to ensure, also can be diagnosed through a simple buffer fluid. The doctor will be make a swab of the male urethra or cervix female, and the sample will be analyzed for signs of clap. Throat and anal cultures are also performed, if there is reason to test for the infection in these areas. In some cases, doctors prefer to perform a simple urine screen to test for bacteria in the urine to make a diagnosis. The test results can take several days to come, and should abstain from intimate contact if the clap is suspected, in order to avoid transmitting.
3 How is the Treaty clap
A series of antibiotics easily cures the clap. If a partner has been diagnosed with the clap, the other partner should be tested and treated simultaneously in order to avoid spreading the infection back and forth between them. As with any infection, should always finish the entire round of antibiotics - even if the symptoms go away - may not be lead to a relapse of affection.
4 Know How to male body maintain health
Here are a few quick tips to maintain the health of the male organ; After all, this is the only man ever going to get, then it should really take care of it!
If it is infected with the clap, all partners of the latter must be informed so that they can take the test. Of course, it can be embarrassing to talk about, but untreated infections can cause infertility, illness extreme or even death, so not revealing is simply not an option.
Have no relations until the full round of antibiotics has been completed and the doctor checked a certificate of good health. Still, the infection can spread during treatment!
Always, always use protection during intimacy. It is the best way to protect the male organ of the disease.
Any person who is not in a monogamous relationship should regularly screened for partner transmitted infections
Use a cream of vitamin the body male of high quality (http://www.man1health.com/) on a daily basis to keep the male organ healthy and virile. An all-natural oil male organ (most professionals recommend Man 1 man oil) can keep the skin smooth, fight bacteria and even increase the sensitivity at a time.

But knowing which products are best can be a confusing process because there are so many that can be purchased. It can be hard to determine which ones truly work and which are just a waste of your time and money. One of the focuses of this new website (http://trymeladermcream.com) is to provide in depth information about a skin lightening cream produced by Civant Skin Care called Meladerm Cream.
It took the Civant company four years of research, development, and tests, before this unique product was released to the public in 2005. All of the hard work turned out to be worth it because Meladerm was promptly awarded the title of “2005 Beauty with Science Winner” for being one of the best skin whitening products.
Over the years the innovative formula has been altered several times by the Civant Skincare company in order to help make sure it is as effective as possible. The one thing that it has never had is the controversial ingredients found in other creams like hydroquinone, mercury, steroids, or parabens. For instance the use of hydroquinone in over the counter skin creams has been banned in several countries because of it's harmful side effects to your health, and the EU banned it over ten years ago.
As an article on TryMeladermCream (http://trymeladermcream.com/meladerm-cream-reviews/) noted, Meladerm skincare cream is made up of a variety of safe and natural ingredients like Kojic acid (derived from rice), alpha-arbutin (made from the bearberry bush), lemon juice extract, and licorice extract. These are just a few of the many ingredients which work together to eliminate skin issues.
While side effects are a very real concern with many skin lightening creams, Meladerm Cream avoids that problem because it is formulated with natural organic ingredients. Quick and safe results provided by this skin lightening cream are the key reasons that it has been growing in popularity. Readers can find reviews from real customers as well as before and after pictures of them on the Civant website. For example, one reviewer said in part, "I've been using Meladerm on that area for about 2 months and have seen almost a complete fading of the spots. Great product and I have recommended to everyone"
An important fact you should not overlook is that Meladerm is a specialty product that is not available in stores. In order to control the freshness and authenticity of the product it is only available online.To learn more about Meladerm and where to purchase it be sure to visit TryMeladermCream (http://trymeladermcream.com/buy-meladerm-cream/). Visitors who may be interested in trying it will find links on how to purchase this skin lightening cream direct from the manufacturer. By doing so they will be eligible for a 30 day no question money back guarantee.
The goal of Eye Screen is to test your central vision on a regular basis. To do this, the app uses two eye screening tests: the Mini Snellen and the Amsler Grid. The Mini Snellen tests central vision, or the bull’s eye portion of eyesight (when thinking of a ringed target). The Amsler Grid Is designed to test for a wider visual field. In addition to AMD, these screening tests also warn of other potential eye problems or diseases that may be subtle, painless and difficult to detect. These problems include cataracts, vitreous hemorrhage (new floaters), diabetic retinopathy and various forms of glaucoma. Individuals with high blood pressure are at increased risk for eye disease.
Eye Screen is available now at the iTunes store. Priced at just $.99, the app is suggested for anyone (especially persons over the age of 50) who want to take a more pro-active role in their personal eye care. By setting an internal alarm in the app, users receive a reminder to take the exam periodically. While no application can take the place of a doctor’s visit, this app offers you a helpful tool to monitor your eye health on a regular basis.
