According to psychologist: help break these bad habits for good

    From procrastinating to smoking, nail biting or spending too much time in front of Netflix, we all have bad habits that we could stand to lose. But these everyday addictions can be hard to break because they are so deeply wired into our brains. So, what can we do to help break these bad habits for good? According to one expert, your success lies in one simple word don’t. Speaking to Today, psychologist Amantha Imber says that habits are so difficult to quit because they are hard wired through default behaviour and that trying to go against this means the brain has to work incredibly hard. As such, the easy thing to do is go back to the default behaviour and continue with your bad habits. However, by using the word don’t either in conversation or as self-talk Imb...

Labour on plan for major consultation on NHS restructuring

    The Nuffield Trust said Labour should tread cautiously in embarking upon a radical restructure. Labour will flesh out how it would dismantle Andrew Lansley’s structural NHS reforms to bring more health provision back in-house, in a wide-ranging consultation on NHS restructuring under a future Labour government. The shadow health secretary, Jon Ashworth, said Labour had now rejected the possibility of working within the existing structures, calling them unfit for purpose, and said the party would consult in the coming months over how it could re-establish a universally public NHS. The party is committing for the first time to a wholesale restructure of the health service. Overhauling NHS structures have traditionally been politically risky. The former Conservativ...

Trump sparks jokes about size of North Korea’s letter

    Social media users poked fun at President Trump on Friday after the White House unveiled photos of him receiving a letter in a large envelope from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump is seen in the photos smiling while posing alongside Kim Jong Chol, North Korea's former intelligence chief and tope aide to the regime's ruler. Trump initially said that he had received a very nice letter from Kim Jong Un, but acknowledged just minutes later that he hadn't yet opened or read the letter. The letter was presented as Trump revived plans for a June 12 summit with Kim in Singapore that Trump had abruptly cancelled last week. Social media users, however, were quick to point out the large envelope. Ben Wexler, a writer for the Arrested Development television show, did a...

NHS cancer patients may not receive enough follow up after a diagnosis

    Cancer patients in the UK may not receive enough follow-up after a diagnosis, a new study by researchers in Chicago suggests. The study, presented at the annual American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago, suggests five years of monitoring is insufficient for some cancers and too long for others. The research suggests some NHS patients may receive too few years of follow-up care. This study highlights the importance of monitoring some cancer patients for extended periods, said Dr Robert Dood, of the MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas. Failing to monitor patients at greatest risk means opportunities to save their lives may be missed. His researchers used the American SEER database, which covers about 28% of the US population, to analyse when p...
