Do housing tenure and car access predict health because they are simply markers of income or self esteem? A Scottish study. (1/3242)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate relations between health (using a range of measures) and housing tenure or car access; and to test the hypothesis that observed relations between these asset based measures and health are simply because they are markers for income or self esteem. DESIGN: Analysis of data from second wave of data collection of West of Scotland Twenty-07 study, collected in 1991 by face to face interviews conducted by nurse interviewers. SETTING: The Central Clydeside Conurbation, in the West of Scotland. SUBJECTS: 785 people (354 men, 431 women) in their late 30s, and 718 people (358 men, 359 women) in their late 50s, participants in a longitudinal study. MEASURES: General Health Questionnaire scores, respiratory function, waist/hip ratio, number of longstanding illnesses, number of symptoms in the last month, and systolic blood pressure; household income adjusted for household size and composition; Rosenberg self esteem score; housing tenure and care access. RESULTS: On bivariate analysis, all the health measures were significantly associated with housing tenure, and all except waist/hip ratio with car access; all except waist/hip ratio were related to income, and all except systolic blood pressure were related to self esteem. In models controlling for age, sex, and their interaction, neither waist/hip ratio nor systolic blood pressure remained significantly associated with tenure or care access. Significant relations with all the remaining health measures persisted after further controlling for income or self esteem. CONCLUSIONS: Housing tenure and car access may not only be related to health because they are markers for income or psychological traits; they may also have some directly health promoting or damaging effects. More research is needed to establish mechanisms by which they may influence health, and to determine the policy implications of their association with health.  (+info)

Computer use by general practitioners in Scotland. (2/3242)

BACKGROUND: Despite the widespread adoption by general practitioners (GPs) of desktop computers, there has been very little evaluation of the way in which the computer is actually used during consultations and the way in which it affects patient satisfaction. AIM: To ascertain the extent to which the computer is used in the consultation and to investigate the possible relationship between computer use and patient satisfaction. METHOD: Six GPs completed a short questionnaire about the extent to which they use the computer during surgeries. Eighty-four consultations from the surgeries of these GPs were video recorded. Patient satisfaction data on these 84 patients were collected at the time of the surgery using the previously validated Consultation Satisfaction Questionnaire. RESULTS: All six GPs stated that they usually used the computer during consultations. However, video observation revealed that the computer was used in just 51% of surgeries. The proportion of time that the computer was used for varied from 0.03 to 0.4, with a mean value of 0.12. The commonest function for which the computer was used was prescribing. The consultations in which the computer was used (CU) were on average 148 seconds longer than the non-computerized consultations (NCU). There was no difference in patient satisfaction between the two groups. CONCLUSION: Despite this group of GPs having a self-declared interest in the use of computers, the extent to which the computer was used was much lower than expected from the GPs' self-reported use. This may be partly explained by the fact that using the computer takes up valuable time within the consultation and does not appear to contribute to patient satisfaction. If desktop computers are to be used to their full potential in general practice, more work is required to evaluate their impact on the consultation process itself.  (+info)

Does the availability of prescribed drugs affect rates of self poisoning? (3/3242)

The trends in self-poisoning rates and in rates of prescribing of the major drug groups were compared. Over the period 1981-91, barbiturate prescribing and self poisoning both fell by 80%; for antidepressants, prescribing increased by over 40% and self poisoning by 30%; for antipsychotics, both rose by 30%; for benzodiazepines, poisoning fell by 30% and prescribing by 20%. Even for analgesic drugs, which are also available over the counter, there was a correspondence between changes in self poisoning and prescribing. The availability of prescribed drugs is directly related to their use for self poisoning. Restricting the availability of these drugs is a possible preventative strategy, although further research on this is needed.  (+info)

Good health care: patient and professional perspectives. (4/3242)

Many health needs assessment exercises are professionally led, employing complex epidemiological methods. An alternative method that gives valuable information about patient preferences is a forced-choice questionnaire, which this study used in five practices in the West of Scotland. In each practice, patient-centred care was the most highly valued attribute of service provision.  (+info)

Failing firefighters: a survey of causes of death and ill-health retirement in serving firefighters in Strathclyde, Scotland from 1985-94. (5/3242)

During the decade beginning 1 January 1985, 887 full-time firefighters, all male, left the service of Strathclyde Fire Brigade (SFB). There were 17 deaths--compared to 64.4 expected in the Scottish male population aged 15-54 years--giving a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) of 26, and 488 ill-health retirements (IHR). None of the deaths was attributable to service, the major causes being: myocardial infarction--five, (expected = 17.3; SMR = 29); cancers--three (colon, kidney and lung) (expected = 13.6; SMR = 22); road traffic accidents--two (expected = 4.17; SMR = 48) and suicide--two (expected = 4.9; SMR = 41). Amalgamating the deaths and IHRs showed that the six most common reasons for IHR were musculoskeletal (n = 202, 40%), ocular (n = 61, 12.1%), 'others' (n = 58, 11.5%), injuries (n = 50, 9.9%), heart disease (n = 48, 9.5%) and mental disorders (n = 45, 8.9%). Over 300 IHRs (over 60%) occurred after 20 or more years service. When the IHRs were subdivided into two quinquennia, there were 203 and 302 in each period. Mean length of service during each quinquennium was 19.4 vs. 21.3 years (p = 0.003) and median length was 21 years in both periods; interquartile range was 12-26 years in the first and 17-27 years in the second period (p = 0.002), but when further broken down into diagnostic categories, the differences were not statistically significant, with the exception of means of IHRs attributed to mental disorders (14.5 vs. 19 years, p = 0.03).  (+info)

Geographic, demographic, and socioeconomic variations in the investigation and management of coronary heart disease in Scotland. (6/3242)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether age, sex, level of deprivation, and area of residence affect the likelihood of investigation and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease. DESIGN, PATIENTS, AND INTERVENTIONS: Routine discharge data were used to identify patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) between 1991 and 1993 inclusive. Record linkage provided the proportion undergoing angiography, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) over the following two years. Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to determine whether age, sex, deprivation, and area of residence were independently associated with progression to investigation and revascularisation. SETTING: Mainland Scotland 1991 to 1995 inclusive. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Two year incidence of angiography, PTCA, and CABG. Results-36 838 patients were admitted with AMI. 4831 (13%) underwent angiography, 587 (2%) PTCA, and 1825 (5%) CABG. Women were significantly less likely to undergo angiography (p < 0.001) and CABG (p < 0.001) but more likely to undergo PTCA (p < 0.05). Older patients were less likely to undergo all three procedures (p < 0.001). Socioeconomic deprivation was associated with a reduced likelihood of both angiography and CABG (p < 0.001). There were significant geographic variations in all three modalities (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Variations in investigation and management were demonstrated by age, sex, geography, and socioeconomic deprivation. These are unlikely to be accounted for by differences in need; differences in clinical practice are, therefore, likely.  (+info)

Factors influencing tackle injuries in rugby union football. (7/3242)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the influence of selected aspects of lifestyle, personality, and other player related factors on injuries in the tackle. To describe the detailed circumstances in which these tackles occurred. METHODS: A prospective case-control study was undertaken in which the tackling and tackled players ("the cases") involved in a tackle injury were each matched with "control" players who held the same respective playing positions in the opposing teams. A total of 964 rugby matches involving 71 senior clubs drawn from all districts of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) were observed by nominated linkmen who administered self report questionnaires to the players identified as cases and controls. Information on lifestyle habits, match preparation, training, and coaching experience was obtained. A validated battery of psychological tests assessed players' trait anger and responses to anger and hostility. The circumstances of the tackles in which injury occurred were recorded by experienced SRU coaching staff in interviews with involved players after the match. RESULTS: A total of 71 tackle injury episodes with correct matching of cases and controls were studied. The following player related factors did not contribute significantly to tackle injuries: alcohol consumption before the match, feeling "below par" through minor illness, the extent of match preparation, previous coaching, or practising tackling. Injured and non-injured players in the tackle did not differ in their disposition toward, or expression of, anger or hostility. Some 85% of tackling players who were injured were three quarters, and 52% of injuries occurred when the tackle came in behind the tackled player or within his peripheral vision. Either the tackling or tackled player was sprinting or running in all of these injury episodes. One third of injuries occurred in differential speed tackles--that is, when one player was travelling much faster than the other at impact. The player with the lower momentum was injured in 80% of these cases. Forceful or crunching tackles resulting in injury mostly occurred head on or within the tackled player's side vision. CONCLUSIONS: Attention should be focused on high speed tackles going in behind the tackled player's line of vision. Comparative information on the circumstances of the vast majority of tackles in which no injury occurs is required before any changes are considered to reduce injuries in the tackle.  (+info)

Prevalence of angiographic atherosclerotic renal artery disease and its relationship to the anatomical extent of peripheral vascular atherosclerosis. (8/3242)

BACKGROUND: Recognition of the possible presence of atherosclerotic renal artery disease (ARAD) is important because of its progressive nature, and because of the potential for precipitating an acute deterioration in renal function by administration of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of ARAD in patients undergoing peripheral angiography and its relationship to the extent of their peripheral vascular disease (PVD). METHODS: The reports of the 218 patients who underwent peripheral angiography to investigate PVD in one centre in a calendar year, and in whom it was possible to image the renal arteries, were analysed retrospectively. The presence of atherosclerotic disease in the renal, aortic, iliac, femoral and distal areas was recorded for each patient. RESULTS: The prevalence of ARAD was 79/218 (36.2%). The greater the number of atherosclerotic areas of the arterial tree, the higher the prevalence of ARAD. Patients with aortic disease and bilateral iliac, femoral and distal vessel disease had the highest incidence of ARAD 19/38 (50%). The incidence of ARAD in those with femoral artery atherosclerosis was significantly higher than in those without femoral artery atherosclerosis (42.1% compared with 9.7%, P=0.001 chi2). There was no significant difference in those groups with or without iliac and distal disease. None of the 11 patients with normal femoral and iliac arteries had ARAD. CONCLUSIONS: Renal artery atherosclerosis is a common occurrence in patients with PVD. If extensive PVD is recognized during aortography, a high flush should be considered to examine the renal arteries, if they are not included in the main study.  (+info)

Vince Dundee (October 22, 1907 - July 27, 1949), the former New York State middleweight champion of the world was born Vincenzo Lazzara in Sicily in 1907. The Lazzara family emigrated from Sicily to the United States and lived in Baltimore. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, former World Welterweight Champion Joe Dundee, he changed his name to Dundee and became a professional boxer. In 1933, after nearly 11 years in the ring, Dundee defeated Lou Brouillard over 15 rounds to capture the New York State middleweight title of the world. Dundee lost his claim to the crown when he was outpointed by Teddy Yarosz on September 11, 1934. Dundee retired with a record of 118 wins (28 knockouts), 20 losses and 13 draws. Dundee survived a collision with a train that hurled his automobile several hundred feet not long after his boxing career ended. He later was stricken with Multiple Sclerosis in 1942. Dundee died at a Glendale, California sanitarium in 1949 of MS. He was survived by his wife, ...

The Scottish National War Memorial is located in Edinburgh Castle and commemorates Scottish soldiers, and those serving with Scottish regiments, who died in the two world wars and more recent conflicts. The monument was formally opened in 1927. It is housed in a redeveloped barrack block in Crown Square, at the heart of the castle, and incorporates numerous monuments. Proposals for a Scottish National War Memorial were put forward in 1917, during the First World War, by John Stewart-Murray, 8th Duke of Atholl, and Capt George Swinton of Kimmerghame. Sir Robert Lorimer, one of the architects involved in the Imperial War Graves Commission, was appointed in 1919, but opposition to a large-scale monument arose from the Cockburn Association and others concerned with the castles heritage. A more modest scheme to remodel the North Barrack Block was finally agreed in 1923, and the memorial was formally opened on 14 July 1927 by the Prince of Wales. After the Second World War 50,000 names were added to ...

By Andrew Deas, Information Services Division, NHS National Services Scotland. In 2016, 31,331 people were diagnosed with cancer in Scotland (16,084 women and 15,247 men). This was an increase from 28,048 people ten years previously. As discussed in the previous newsletter (volume 9, issue 3), these figures do not include non-melanoma skin cancer. There were 11,677 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer recorded by the Scottish Cancer Registry in 2016. Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Scotland and the rest of the UK. However in order to be able to compare cancer statistics with other countries, non-melanoma skin cancer is excluded from statistics for all cancers combined.. The overall risk of cancer is higher in men than women. However, age-adjusted incidence rates of cancer have increased by 1.9% for women and decreased by 6.2% for men. This has reduced the gap in cancer risk between men and women over time. The age-adjusted incidence rates allow a fairer ...
7. Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland) (LD) To ask the Scottish Government what the impact has been on NHS Grampians patient service record of the figures from the Scottish Parliament information centre, which suggest that the boards NRAC funding targets have not been met since 2009, leading to a £165.6 million discrepancy. (S5O-01550). The Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport (Shona Robison) As I explained last week, NHS Grampian was 3.7 per cent behind its target funding allocation when the NHS Scotland resource allocation committee formula was introduced in 2009-10. That is a position that we inherited. The Scottish Government has invested significantly in supporting the boards that are behind parity and, since 2015-16, NHS Grampian has received additional funding of £47 million for the specific purpose of accelerating the achievement of NRAC parity.. We expect all health boards, including NHS Grampian, to meet and maintain national performance targets and standards from the resources ...

Objectives: To explore midwives intrapartum referral decisions in relation to their dispositional attitude towards risk. Design: A web-based correlation study examined the association between midwives personality (personal risk tendency); place of work (location); years experience and the timing of their decisions to make referrals (referral score) in a series of fictitious case scenarios (vignettes). Participants: Sample - 102 midwives providing labour care in both Consultant Led Units (CLU) and Community Maternity Units (CMU) from four Scottish Health Board areas. Analysis: A correlational analysis was carried out to test the association between total risk scores and midwives referral scores. Between-group comparisons were also conducted for experienced versus inexperienced midwives, midwives practising in consultant versus CMU settings and between the four Health Board Areas. Findings: Despite being presented with identical information in the vignettes, midwives made a wide range of ...
Abstract:. This study is part of the research programme involving data linkage within the Scottish Health Informatics Programme (SHIP). The research draws on and extends work on reproductive histories and life outcomes. Previous studies have shown that the number of children (parity) can be linked to specific health outcomes in mid and later life for women (references can be provided). We aim to extend this research specifically for Scotland based on Scottish data, namely the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS) linked to health data from the NHS Scottish Morbidity Record (SMR) datasets, including the maternity dataset SMR02 (as parity is only recorded for married women at birth registration in Scotland). The aim of this SHIP project, involving data linkage and health outcomes, is to gain a full understanding of the impact of both fertility histories and childlessness on health outcomes and mortality. In addition, we plan to compare findings with previous research where applicable. This research is ...

Researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) have warned that Scottish hospitals are at risk of a new potentially deadly superbug outbreak unless attitudes towards vital screening change.. At the moment rates of antibiotic-resistant bacteria Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) in Scotland is relatively low compared to other parts of Europe, USA, India and Africa.. However, experts have discovered a disturbing lack of education and awareness among health professionals and the public about the threat of CPE, sparking calls for urgent action.. Researchers in the GCU Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention (SHIP) research group have carried out the first study of its kind into the acceptability and perceptions of CPE screening.. In a nationwide survey, 450 nursing staff from all Scottish health board areas and 261 members of the public were asked a series of questions to find out what they knew about CPE and the acceptability of rectal swabs, which is the best way to ...

BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers in the world. The geographical prevalence varies considerably in different countries and Scotland is regarded as an area of low risk for the disease. AIMS: To assess the association between chronic hepatitis C infection (HCV) and HCC in a population of patients presenting to a single hospital. PATIENTS: One hundred and fourteen cases of histologically confirmed liver cancer presenting to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh between 1985 and 1994 were examined. METHODS: Of 114 cases of HCC, 80 samples of stored sera were available. Samples positive for HCV Ab were genotyped by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of HCV c-DNA. A population of 29 cirrhotic patients (diagnosed between 1985 and 1994) with chronic HCV infection was also genotyped. RESULTS: Chronic HCV infection was a major risk factor (30% of tested HCC patients) identified. HCV genotype 1b was predominant (16 of 20 patients). The time from HCV ...
The history of the museum can be said to begin in 1780 with the foundation of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, which still continues, but whose collection of archaeological and other finds was transferred to the government in 1858 as the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland, based in Queen Street in the New Town, Edinburgh.[4]. In 1861 construction of the Industrial Museum of Scotland began, with Prince Albert laying the foundation stone. In 1866, renamed the Edinburgh Museum of Science and Art, the eastern end and the Grand Gallery were opened by Prince Alfred. In 1888 the building was finished and in 1904 the institution was renamed the Royal Scottish Museum.[5]. The organizational merger of the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Museum took place in 1985, but the two collections retained separate buildings until 1995 when the Queen Street building closed, to reopen later as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. In 1998 the new Museum of Scotland ...
Children in Greater Glasgow and Clyde have even more reasons to smile today as figures reveal that tooth extractions have dropped more than 52% since the millennium.. In 2000-2001, there were 26,355 teeth removed from the mouths of children in the NHSGGC area, dropping to 12,516 by 2015-2016 - the biggest percentage drop of any health board area in Scotland.. While children have teeth pulled out for a number of reasons including trauma to the mouth or for orthodontic reasons, the figures undoubtedly show the success of initiatives aimed at reducing levels of tooth decay.. Karen Murray, NHSGGCs lead for Oral Health said: These figures are hugely encouraging and great news for children throughout Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Teeth extractions can be very traumatic for children so any reduction - and this is a dramatic one - needs to be applauded.. Back in 2005 the Scottish Dental National Action Plan identified high levels of tooth decay and inequalities in child oral health. The main aim was to ...

This research aimed to identify current national provision by health services in Scotland in relation to proactive screening and reactive assessment for people with an intellectual disability in Scotland who have, or are at risk of developing, dementia. Staff from 12 intellectual disability services, representing the 11 health board areas in Scotland, completed an online questionnaire which asked about proactive screening and reactive assessment for people with intellectual disability who had, or were at risk of developing, dementia as well as suggested areas for improvement. All of the areas provided services for people with intellectual disability who have, or are at risk of developing, dementia, but differed as to whether this was reactive, proactive or both. Nine services offered intervention following diagnosis. The most common elements used across both proactive screening and reactive assessment were conducting a health check, using a general dementia questionnaire designed for people with ...

The Bill aims to create a redress scheme for survivors of historical child abuse in care in Scotland. The scheme is designed to address the harm caused by historical abuse in various care settings in Scotland. Committee Convener, Clare Adamson MSP said:.

Scotland is a beautiful country well-known for its dramatic scenery of mountains and valleys, rolling hills, green fields and forests, and rugged coastline. While everyone knows Highlands for this, Scotland is beautiful in the Lowlands, islands and the flat lands of the North-East as well. It also has lively and friendly cities, often of great architectural significance, and a rich history and heritage dating back thousands of years with many ancient and historic sites. Other characteristics that attract droves of visitors include golf (the game was created in Scotland and it has some of the worlds best and most famous courses), whisky (many distilleries can be visited), family history (millions worldwide are descended from those who emigrated from Scotland when times were tough in the 18th and 19th centuries), hiking, wildlife and winter sports. Around Loch Ness in the north of the Highlands, you can also hunt for the Monster... or at least try.

OBJECTIVE: To establish the incidence of nontraumatic lower-extremity amputation (LEA) in people with diabetes in Scotland. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This cohort study linked national morbidity records and diabetes datasets to establish the number of people with diabetes who underwent nontraumatic major and minor LEA in Scotland from 2004 to 2008. RESULTS: Two thousand three hundred eighty-two individuals with diabetes underwent a nontraumatic LEA between 2004 and 2008; 57.1% (n = 1,359) underwent major LEAs. The incidence of any LEA among persons with diabetes fell over the 5-year study period by 29.8% (3.04 per 1,000 in 2004 to 2.13 per 1,000 in 2008, P , 0.001). Major LEA rates decreased by 40.7% from 1.87 per 1,000 in 2004 to 1.11 per 1,000 in 2008 (P , 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: There has been a significant reduction in the incidence of LEA in persons with diabetes in Scotland between 2004 and 2008, principally explained by a reduction in major amputation. ...
The sales fortunes in Scotland of the Independent newspaper continue to contrast with its sister title, the i.. According to the latest set of figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulation, sales in Scotland of the Independent fell from an average 7,814 during April last year to an average 4,850 last month. In other words, a year-on-year drop of 37.9 per cent.. By contrast, the i - with its more bite-size approach to stories - saw its average sale in Scotland increase from 12,290 in April last year to 16,686 last month. In other words, a year-on-year increase of 35.8 per cent.. The March 2011-March 2012 average drop for the Independent was 32.5 per cent, from 7,780 to 5,275; while the average increase for the i during the same period was 46.3 per cent, from 11,293 to 16,526.. Elsewhere, among the figures, the recently-launched The Scottish Sun on Sunday newspaper registered an average sale in Scotland last month of 228,712, some 9,305 down on the previous month.. In summary, the daily newspapers ...
Its a milestone that charts the epoch-making choices ahead of us, contrasting sharply against the chaos and carnage of chemical giant INEOSs shale gas experiment and the UKs discredited nuclear programme.. Records just released from the Department for Energy and Climate Change from the first half of 2014, show renewables generated 32% more electricity than any other single source of power in Scotland. In total, the renewables sector generated a record 10.3TWh (terawatt-hours)1, compared to 7.8TWh2 from nuclear generation - previously Scotlands main source of electricity. Renewables also now eclipse coal and gas-fired electricity in generation whilst also contributing hugely to the green economy. Its estimated that marine energy alone may be worth £50bn by 2050.. Lang Banks from WWF Scotland hailed the news saying:. Renewables overtaking nuclear power to become the largest source of electricity is certainly historic, and represents a major step on the way to Scotland becoming a 100 per ...
The main reason for our trip to Scotland was to backpack and wild camp in order to complete a round of The Fisherfield 5, the most remote Munros (mountains over 3000 feet) in Scotland. The Fisherfield Forest has an alternative name of The Great Wilderness of Scotland and also has, allegedly, the worst bog in Scotland. To make matters worse it is guarded by river crossings of which the guide book has to say: in spate these rivers can trap the unwary! A daunting prospect in good, settled weather, but in the prevailing conditions we held out little hope of success. Nonetheless we opted to go and have a look!!! The support team dropped the four of us off at the beginning of a landrover track which led up through the beautifully wooded Gleann Chaorachain with the sound of the river thundering through its gorge to our left. The weather, however, was optimistic at this point with the sun putting in an appearance and lowering clouds looking as if they might clear from An Teallach towering above us. ...

AU - Dillon, J.F.. AU - Goldberg, David J.. PY - 2011/3. Y1 - 2011/3. N2 - We estimated the excess risk of in-patient hospitalization in a large cohort of persons diagnosed with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, controlling for social deprivation. A total of 20 749 individuals diagnosed with HCV in Scotland by 31 December 2006 were linked to the Scottish hospital discharge database, and indirectly standardized hospitalization rates, adjusting for sex, age, year and deprivation were calculated. We observed significant excess morbidity considering episodes for: any diagnosis [standardized morbidity ratio (SMR) 3·4, 95% CI 3·3-3·5]; liver-related diagnoses (SMR 41·3, 95% CI 39·6-43·0); and only non-liver-related diagnoses (SMR 2·14, 95% CI 2·08-2·19).

Accumulating evidence implicates inflammation as a potential pathway in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. The objective of the present study was to assess the ability of C-reactive protein (CRP) to predict the development of diabetes in middle-aged men in the West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study. Baseline plasma samples for CRP measurement were available for 5,245 men of whom 127 were classified as having a transition from normal glucose control to overt diabetes during the study, based on American Diabetes Association criteria. Baseline CRP was an important predictor of the development of diabetes in univariate analysis (hazard ratio [HR] for an increase of 1 SD = 1.55; 95% CI 1.32-1.82; P , 0.0001). In multivariate analysis, CRP remained a predictor of diabetes development (HR 1.30; 95% CI 1.07-1.58; P = 0.0075) independent of other clinically employed predictors, including baseline BMI and fasting triglyceride and glucose concentrations. Moreover, there was a graded increase in risk ...

As golf becomes ever more popular it is easy to find great golf courses pretty much anywhere in the world ideally suited to any level of golfing proficiency or level of budget. Whilst golfing in warmer climes may be a very attractive proposition for many people, there can be no doubt that playing golf in Scotland has a certain draw. Not only is it the home of the golf but there are many golf offers available for those who want to give Scotlands links and greens a go.. Where better to start when playing a round of golf in Scotland than on the east coast, where golf actually originated. It is here in the old Kingdom of Fife that St. Andrews Old Course can be found. The Old Course is actually a public golf course but ballots are drawn to determine who gets to play there, it is so popular. Local hotels have special golf offers with guaranteed start times which is one way of avoiding the ballot. Also in the east, this time in Perthshire is the world famous Gleneagles. A wonderful inland course and ...
Treating severe skin conditions with UV light rather than creams, pills and injections could save the NHS millions of pounds while improving patient outcomes, according to a new University of Dundee study.. Dr John Foerster and colleagues from the Universitys School of Medicine found the annual per-patient cost of filtered UV light treatment, known as phototherapy, to be around £250. This is one-sixth of the cost attributed to phototherapy by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and a fraction of the estimated £7-12,000 annual cost of injectable biologic therapies.. Steroid creams are frequently prescribed for skin diseases but these can cause serious side effects and can prove inadequate to bring diseases such as psoriasis and eczema under control. Patients may then be referred for more intensive treatment, which could include pills, injections or phototherapy.. If phototherapy had not been available in the NHS Tayside area, alternative drug-based treatments would ...

This study provides outcome data on the impact of the Health Technology Board for Scotlands grading model on referrals to ophthalmology from a primary care based diabetic retinopathy screening programme using digital photography that meets the recommended resolution agreed by both the Health Technology Board for Scotland and the National Screening Committee for England.9,12. The Health Technology Board for Scotlands grading model appears to be effective in triaging patients needing review by the third level grader. Only 302 (5.4%) patients images needed review by the third level grader and, of those, 190 (3.4%) were finally referred to ophthalmology services. Only 10% of the images passed to the level 3 grader were downgraded for review in 12 months. Most errors were caused by the misclassification of referable maculopathy such as misjudging the position of blot haemorrhages or exudates, incorrectly classifying drusen as exudates or mistaking dot haemorrhages for blots haemorrhages.. A major ...
