NHS chief warns cancer and mental health care at risk without extra cash

Simon Stevens also said waiting lists could soar to 5m in conference speech, adding that the service has a ‘funding problem’ The chief executive of the NHS has warned that cancer and mental health care could deteriorate because ministers are not prepared to give the health service billions of extra funding in the forthcoming budget. Simon Stevens said that the waiting list for hospital operations could hit 5m, warned the service “has a funding problem” and that spending on the NHS is expected to “nosedive” over the next two years.

  • As it is Mental Health Awareness Week across the UK it feels appropriate to look closer at one of our related healthcare courses ‘BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing.’ When you typically think of nursing you think of people being physically unwell or needing physical care but there is a whole other side to nursing that is just as important and that is mental health nursing. Why? Because there is no health without mental health.  As it states on the University of Northampton’s course page for this subject, one in four people are likely to experience some degree of mental distress in their lives. What a shocking and eye-opening statistic for us all to digest. Think about it, if you have a family or friendship group of four individuals, one of you is likely to suffer from a mental health issue. And these can be so varied. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, schizophrenia to obsessive compulsive disorder, there a whole range of different kinds of things that can affect our mental well being.  So, why should you choose a career as a mental health nurse and why should you choose the University of Northampton? This is what it says on the course page: “A mental health nurse can make a positive contribution in people’s lives. Our vision is to promote compassionate care through effective communication. We want to make this a reality by recruiting people who are willing to take up this challenge. So, do you have the courage to commit yourself to mental health nursing? If you do, then our BSc (Hons) programme, which gives you a registration through the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a mental health nurse, is the course for you.”  This course provides: practical experience in healthcare settings practical experiences are gained within hospitals, community settings, the voluntary sector and other health and social care organisations within Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire European Nursing Module through which students can complete a two week placement in a European city See more at:

Impossible to find mental health care for a relative who can not take care of themself [on hold] First, sorry if I'm not posting in the right place. My Girlfriend of 6 years Mother has suffered from seriously debilitating OCD and anxiety issues most of her life (at least since her late teens). about a year ago, her husband (Gf's Father) lost his job and since then her mental health has deteriorated significantly. She is in a severe state of depression, and her OCD is off the charts even compared to it's normal severity. Over the past few months she has been in and out of the psychiatric ER 3 times, placed in a ward for 2 weeks, placed in an outpatient treatment program, and finally an inpatient program (She was refusing to go to the outpatient.) Currently, she's in an inpatient program, however the social worker at the program is saying that they don't provide the type of care she needs, and that in about a week or two they will discharge her and re-enroll her in the outpatient program. I don't believe for a MINUTE that a week to two weeks will show an improvement in her condition to the point that she will be able to attend this outpatient program. She can't even feed herself at this point. Her husband is not able to provide the level of care she needs on a daily basis, and I don't believe ANYONE could who wasn't a professional caretaker. It's worth mentioning that this woman is only in her mid-50's, she has a potentially long life ahead of her. We are not looking for a place to stuff her away for the rest of her life. We want her to find the treatment she needs to get her to the point where she's actually ABLE to attend outpatient programs. I'm well aware that there is a mental health crisis in our country, but this is nightmarish. This woman needs moderate to long-term treatment in an inpatient facility that can provide at least SOME personal attention (not just group activities/therapy) from a doctor and this seems impossible to find. Does ANYONE have advice for a next step? I'm tired of feeling powerless in this situation. There has to be an option here that is better than the current situation. I realize my title is rather vague, if an edit is necessary let me know. I don't have the brain power to be concise at the moment. Thanks.
