Tackling obesity in England by Great Britain( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Britain, between 1980 and 1998, the number of people classified as obese tripled to 21per cent of women and 17 per cent of men. It is estimated that this costs the economy, as a whole, £2 billion and the NHS £0.5 billion in treatment. However the response of the NHS is patchy, with no national guidelines and only 28% of health authorities taking action to address the problem. There is little activity related to the management of obesity outside of general practice but only a small proportion of GPs follow a protocol. This report recommends that there should be strategies to reduce obesity and that the Department of Health should build on the plan in the National Service Framework on coronary heart disease and work with partners and professional bodies to clarify responsibilities. It should also work with the National Institute of Clinical excellence to disseminate information. The Department of Health should also lead a cross government strategy to promote the benefits of physical activity and there should be local targets to encourage cycling and walking. It should also work with the food industry to improve the balance of diet. Much of this work needs to be aimed at school children to promote a healthy lifestyle throughout life and guidance to schools on commercial sponsorship should be strengthened so that there is no conflict with messages on healthy eating

Improving patient care by reducing the risk of hospital acquired infection : a progress report by Great Britain( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following on its previous report on the management and control of hospital acquired infections in the NHS (HCP 230, session 1999-00, ISBN 0105566659) published in February 2000, this report by the National Audit Office examines: the extent of progress made towards implementation of good practice recommendations; whether there have been any discernible changes in patient outcomes; and how other countries are addressing these issues. Findings include that implementation and compliance has been patchy, with notable progress at trust level in the strategic prioritisation of infection control processes, although wider factors continue to impede good practice, including the lack of sufficient information on the extent and costs of hospital acquired infections. Further action is required using a range of approaches to change staff behaviour to reduce risks, and a number of recommendations are made to the Department of Health, the Healthcare Commission and NHS trusts which aim to help overcome identified constraints

Better public services through e-government : report by Great Britain( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electronic or e-government means providing public access via the internet to information about all the services offered by central government departments and their agencies; and enabling public access to services such as paying tax, receiving benefits or getting a passport. It is also about government departments harnessing new technology to improve efficiency in their work. To achieve this, the Government has set the target that 100 per cent of services should be available online by 31 December 2005. The main report considers the progress made towards achieving e-government and examines the risks that need to be managed. It identifies five key benefits which departments need to focus on delivering: greater choice, better accessibility, more convenience, faster delivery and improved efficiency. The volume of case studies provides examples of good practice to illustrate how the benefits of e-government can be achieved, based on an examination of 13 IT-enabled change projects being implemented by departments and other public and private sector organisations. The third volume contains a paper written by Professor Helen Margetts and Professor Patrick Dunleavy which reviews the cultural barriers to e-government and considers how these can be overcome

Reducing crime : the Home Office working with crime and disorder reduction partnerships by Great Britain( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Home Office has provided grants of £926.8 million since 1999 to specific crime reduction projects. 354 Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships in England involve police, fire authorities, and the NHS working with the Probation Service, voluntary sector, local residents and businesses to find local solutions to local crime problems. Such partnerships may focus on (1) potential and known offenders - specialist support such as dealing with drug dependency, keeping young people "off the streets"; (2) specific locations - identifying crime hotspots, where action might include better lighting, CCTV, cleaning up graffiti; (3) potential victims of crime - raising awareness, reminders to secure buildings and vehicles, advising vulnerable groups of risk. The NAO finds that many of the schemes have been innovative, diverse in nature, and successful, contributing to the 39 per cent reduction in crime reported in the British Crime Survey between 1995 and 2003-04. But the gains could have been greater if the administrative work had been minimised, grant applications had been simplified, and if the Partnerships had learned lessons from experience elsewhere. The Home Office has initiated some changes designed to simplify bureaucracy and performance management, and plans to merge some funding streams with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. It has also launched 21 local area initiatives which will incorporate a still wider set of funding streams from the Home Office, ODPM, Department for Education and Skills and the Department of Health

Educating and training the future health professional workforce for England by Great Britain( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The NHS faces significant shortages in healthcare professionals. The NAO with the Audit Commission has taken stock of the education and training provision available. The Audit Commissions report "Hidden Talents" (http://www.audit-commission.gov.uk/hidden-talents/index.htm) looks at the planning and provision of education, training and development of existing staff; this report examines the effectiveness of the current arrangements for educating and training new staff. The key findings are: past underestimates have lead to insufficient training places; many higher education institutions believe that if they are to expand student numbers they will need investment in capital infrastructure; there are ill understood variations in the attrition rate of different institutions; there is not enough information to compare costing policies and there is variations in the price of the same qualification; there is scope for efficiency improvements
Department of Health : reducing brain damage : faster access to better stroke care by Great Britain( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stroke is one of the top three causes of death in England and a leading cause of adult disability, with costs to the NHS of about £2.8 billion a year and to the wider economy through lost productivity, disability and informal care of around £4.2 billion. This NAO report looks at whether the NHS is providing effective and high quality stroke care services in England, in terms of acute response, rehabilitation and prevention, as well as examining the role of the Department of Health in managing and supporting stroke care programmes. Key findings include that although progress is being made, the priority afforded to stroke care by the Department of Health and the wider health service should be increased, given its impact and cost, in order to help reduce the number of deaths, improve recovery rates, increase NHS efficiency and lead to significant financial savings. More emphasis should be given to primary and secondary prevention measures, with improved patient access to rehabilitation and support services following discharge, and more effective, integrated emergency stroke care services
