Elliot Millward takes you on a whistle stop tour of 5 things the Haelo team has seen this week (commencing 30 September).
1. We saw on Twitter that our friends at 1000 Lives Plus have published a new edition of ‘The 1000 Lives Plus Quality Improvement Guide’.
The latest version will support members of the Allied Health Professions, such as therapists, podiatrists, dietitians, orthoptists and paramedics, to find ways to make their services even better. The guide can be found on the 1000 Lives Plus website.

2.The Guardian has commented on Jeremy Hunt’s recent announcement that GP surgeries are to trial seven-day and evening opening times. They explore the question; will this change alleviate pressure on A&E?
3. Manchester has this week been named European City of Science for 2016. The Minister for Science and Universities David Willetts MP made the announcement that the city would host the EuroScience Open Forum as well being the City of Science. The forum will run from July 22-27 2016.
4. A new smartphone app has been developed to help the treatment of binge eating. Binge eating was recently identified as an official diagnosis and the TakeControl app aims to learn an individual’s eating habits and alert them when the risk of binge eating is high.
5. And finally, we’ve been impressed by Doc Mike Evans’ channel on YouTube. We love the way he tackles healthcare issues through video and animation. Doc Mike Evans explores a wide range of issues from stress and acne to inflammatory bowel disease and cancer related fatigue, all done with a light touch to make them really engaging.
