I had shingles on my eyelid. Had to have strong antibiotics as if left unchecked can lead to blindness. Don't take any chances. see your GP.

smokeycat

I have a weak immune system due to arthritis medication, chicken pox is dangerous to me. I have to avoid anyone who has it. Amazed how many parents do t even think to tell you their child has it. It's a killer to a minority of people. You have to take this illness seriously.

wendy.kemp

Antiviral are a must and as soon as you suspect shingles. I have recently had it and it's no fun :(

Katanaqui

For anyone considering this, I would see your doctor and discuss appropriate medication such as antivirals (see relevant NHS webpage) before relying on Vitamin B to sort Shingles out. Nothing against the user davening, but the source for the above Googled quote doesn't look entirely reliable to me.

hi_j87

Let see if this is actually a "Hot Deal" for the tax-payers. The cost of the vaccine is £27, and you need 2 separate doses to be immuned, so £54 per person + costs of 2 nurse appointments at the Doctors. How many people will need this? True, it is offered FREE for those who are eligible but it's entirely your choice. Chicken Pox like any other Viral Illness can be life-threatening, it varies among people. If you are unlucky, you can also die from Cold virus! However, the Viral Strain for Chicken Pox in the UK is not as severe as other country like USA where vaccines are given routinely. Hence, the key point here is to see your doctors if you are UNWELL even with the so called "Minor Illnesses". Most people get through the illness just fine as others. TWO things to consider before you go for the vaccine (not just about the cost, or whether this is a "deal"):- 1) All vaccinations have side effects, you can also die from bad complications. Especially in children, there had been reported death among infants who had these vaccines and hence, it is now banned for under 1 to be given in the community - Only under Consultant Supervision. As a parent, think about the need for the jabs. It is not painless and can be traumatic. So, make sure you balance this up when making such decision. 2) If you are thinking of having Chicken Pox vaccination for this reason (transmitting infection to those with weaker immune system), you should also be mindful about other infectious diseases which are not possible to vaccinate against. Only 1% of these diseases can now be prevented with vaccination. It is not possible to stop transmission of any other 99% infectious diseases with vaccination. Hence, other approach is also needed to save them from these diseases. This include a good health promotion by the government to enhance people's understanding of their illness in order to seek help at the right time. If any of your family members or friends are not well, simply ask them not to visit people with weaker immune system. Finally, for those who already have a weaker immune system, if you caught any of these illness including Chicken Pox, seek urgent medical advice. Doctors can provide you with treatment - which are not routinely offered to other people. For example, Chicken Pox - If you are really at risk due to weaker immune system, you can be given Antibodies called VZIG when you are in contact with those who have Chicken Pox. Even if your family is fully vaccinated, still seek help if you are not sure.

xigent

They have to do more than offer statins they have convince patients to accept the prescriptions. Receiving more money if they do this is an incentive no matter how it’s worded. I used statins as an example, my point being that regular standardised health checks would be very beneficial as long as safeguards are put in place to avoid the over prescription of drugs. Early diagnosis of conditions that present no symptoms in the early stages would benefit the patients, the NHS and the taxpayer.

Spain received 75million visitors in 2016 and it’s tourism sector was worth 77 billion euros. This only accounts for 5% of it’s GDP. (data: World Economic Forum). So I guess the 135,000 English immigrants permanently living in Spain who are eating and drinking at ‘Bill’s English Bar’ must make up the remaining 95% of Spain’s GDP.

Bluebella

Your are correct to a point however the point of the NHS guidance is to "encourage" people to at least do some exercise. They have done research on this and there is a sliding scale of benefits and doing just 10 minutes will make a huge difference compared to doing nothing at all. Stating that people need to do an hour day will simple terrify many people who are out-of-shape, overworked and tired, and many of them will think that there's no hope so wont even bother trying. I started my exercise routines doing just 10 minutes and when I started to get fitter and healthier, my interest fitness grew and I started trying new things and extending my workouts. A few years later and I'm full of energy and love doing longer workouts but there was a time in my life when the idea of doing an hours exercise a day would seem like torture.

Dealmessiah

I thought you were joking until I read the article. *Facepalm*

Jimbo111

I would be happy to give blood regularly, but it isn't easy trying to work out where they're going to be taking blood and when. It would be great if I could pop into a&e, or better still a local clinic with free parking and donate it whenever I am free, but what seems to happen in Wigan is the circus rolls into town, they hire a big venue and hope everybody just happens to be free on that day. Maybe it actually works better than my method, but i've only managed to give blood once just because it usually isn't convenient when I remember to check if they're taking it locally.

I gave blood a couple of months ago and I got a text afterwards saying the blood had been delivered to a local hospital. It made me feel so good to have helped someone, worth its weight in gold.

makkax1

I used to give blood regularly and it's no big deal, but the local church hall where they use to do it on an evening is no longer used despite their always being a fair few people there. The main blood donor centre in town is only open during office hours. My feeling is that they can't be that desperate for blood otherwise they'd make it easier to do.

I think its potentially a good thing. It isn't just A and E's it also lists minor injury units and walk in centres as well as what they can treat. If if encorages people go to a minor injury unit to treat a broken bone as there is less wait it takes the pressure of A and E.

Magnets

This seems like a great idea. I'm sure they'll get a lot of stick from people quoting the wait times and complaining when they had to wait longer than expected as A&E is prioritised based on need. I bet google could do a very good job of estimating this from all the data they collect, scary huh

KatsudonVince

It is common sense as well, say if someone is really sick and like you said he/she might not be fully appreciate the seriousness of the condition he/she could have, wouldn't he/she should drive straight to the A&E or perhaps call an ambulance at that instance? I would totally ignore the app and fly to the A&E if I have wings! Just my personal opinion.

KatsudonVince

Totally agree with you. This app will at least give an insight of the waiting time and you can go to the toilet, grab a quick bite etc and not there siting like a waiting duck.

Yup - I'm in Scotland, and live in a rural area, travelling into one of the cities. Although the SNP vote in 2015 resulted in almost all the seats, according to the figures, they actually got just under 50% of the votes - if Westminster elections weren't done as first past the post, the SNP would have significantly less seats.

Robbo11

You must either live in Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland or London if you are travelling to work in the morning with people using free bus passes because to my knowledge, everywhere else in England, they cannot be used before 9.30am on weekdays. Personally, I don't have an issue with free bus passes and think they should be available for the elderly (according to Passenger Focus research, some 95% of passengers agree) though 60 is not so old these days with people living longer than ever before. Maybe the state pensionable age used in England is a better age to grant them but as it is a concession that you, me and everyone else is entitled to eventually anyway, my only issue is the unfairness of the 6 year age difference between qualifying for one in England (ignoring London's 60+ Oyster card as an exception to the rule) compared to NI, Wales and Scotland. Independent studies have also shown that free bus passes are actually sustainable and socially and economically beneficial to the UK. Estimates are that it would cost the UK £1.7 billion to scrap this particular concession because for every £1 spent on free bus passes, apparently it generates nearly £3 of benefits. Re the SNP comment, I was referring more to their landslide 2015 general election result in Scotland rather than last year's Scottish parliament election.

dealer101

Thank for raising awareness!

alg

I have issues with the bus pass thing - many families with children are struggling financially, and don't get subsidies for getting to work etc, while the over 60's get free bus travel. Given that many (not all) of them will no longer have financial dependents, will have cleared their mortgage, etc., and have more disposable income, I struggle when I see them using their bus passes to get to work in the morning. Personally, I would add an extra clause to the provision of bus passes to no longer in paid work. As for the SNP being voted in by a huge majority, and remembering that it is a proportional representative vote, if it's a huge majority, why are they a minority government?
