Long waits for surgery 'have tripled in four years'

The number of patients waiting six months or more for surgery has tripled over the past four years in England, the Royal College of Surgeons has said.

In March, nearly 130,000 people had been waiting for operations after being referred to a consultant, compared with 45,000 in March 2013. But 9 out of
10 patients were still treated within 18 weeks, data shows.

NHS England said it had cut the number of patients waiting more than a year for treatment.
A spokeswoman said: "The NHS has cut the number of patients waiting more than a year for treatment by nearly 13,000 over the past five years, and spending on non-urgent surgery is continuing to rise." However, the surgeons said they were
concerned that many more patients would wait longer for surgery in the future.

Earlier this year, NHS England boss Simon Stevens said growing pressures in the health service meant he could no longer guarantee treatment within the 18-week target time for operations such as knee and hip replacements. The Royal College of Surgeons
says this is resulting in more people waiting for six to nine months or more for surgery, in specialities such as ear, nose and throat, brain and spinal, and general surgery.  More...


How has the fitness video adapted to the YouTube age?

When Cassey Ho, 30, logs on to her YouTube page "blogilates" and uploads her latest workout video, she knows she will soon be inundated with comments from fans across all her social media accounts. 


The fitness video blogger, or vlogger for short, has amassed nearly four million subscribers to her YouTube channel, as well as millions of followers on Facebook and Instagram.

She is one of a new breed of fitness vloggers exploiting the internet's ability to beam content to global mass audiences at very low production costs.
It's a far cry from when fitness queen Jane Fonda inspired millions of people around the world to try aerobics in front of their living room TVs throughout the 1980s. She sold more than 17 million tapes.
  
Scores of other models, actors and stars followed suit. But today, you can find more than 30 million fitness videos on YouTube alone, and countless more on other social media platforms.
 
 
Budding fitness kings and queens can publish and gain a following without star status, a fancy studio or thousands of pounds' worth of equipment, simply recording workouts on their smartphones at the beach or in their gardens and editing the content on their laptops.

But unlike the traditional workout video, where weight loss and fitness was the goal, consumers are logging on to their favourite fitness vloggers for a more intimate and interactive experience.

"Fitness videos have switched from being functional to being aspirational content that give people a window into the lives of the fitness influencers they look up to," says Richard Wilson, chief executive of Clickon Media, a content creation firm.  More...

Tai Chi
for Beginners

Monday 11th September  
5.00-6.00pm

St Michael's Hall,
High St,
Lewes 
 
Tutor: Paul Tucker 
-------------------------- 
Tai Chi Ch'uan is an ancient form of slow, graceful and rhythmic exercise which originated in China.



Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as 'meditation in movement' or 'swimming in air'. It's unlike any of the 'hard' martial arts which rely on force and speed.

Tai Chi strengthens our internal energy, and allows it to flow more freely through the body.

It is gentle and non-violent, though after much practice is an extremely effective form of self defence.

-------------------------- 
Against the backdrop of modern society where stress and superficiality thrive, the practice of Yoga provides some brief sanity, enabling us to enjoy the experience of aligning our body through releasing postures which give us a deeper experience of our self, gaining calmness, focus and a sense of inner spaciousness to take back
our lives.
