The benefits of a daily siesta – PRimage view

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

A 2007 study of more than 23,000 Greek adults may have revealed a surprising key to their legendary vigor—the siesta. Compared with those who power through the day, adults who nap for a minimum of 30 minutes at least three times a week have a 37 percent lower risk of dying from heart disease.

Having lived in Greece, Judy Viitanen is a big fan of the benefits of a daily siesta, or power nap – especially in the hot weather. She finds that a daily ‘cat nap’ really helps recharge her energy levels – and helps her pace herself when she’s going to have a late night, or burning the midnight oil on work projects.  

Health Bill – PRimage comment

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

PRimage has heard that on the day that the British Medical Association votes to launch a public campaign which calls for the withdrawal of the Government’s controversial Health Bill, a survey of 500 GPs shows 85% said they had not been reassured by the government’s response to the listening exercise, with a further 62% saying their support for the reforms has not been altered by the changes to the Health Bill.

We were interested to see that many of the GPs concerns centered on the areas that as a healthcare lobbyist, Judy Viitanen believes are the very real and inherent issues around the Bill – such as increased bureaucracy in the NHS, the impact on patient care and the cost of the re-organisation.  What are your views?  We’d love to hear them.

Prescription charges in England increased – PRimage comment

Friday, March 4th, 2011

PRimage is not happy that as from April 1st the Government is to increase prescription charges for patients in England by 20 pence to £7.40 per item! This is in contrast to the decision this week by the Scottish Parliament to abolish charges for patients north of the border …

As a specialist healthcare lobbyist, with in-depth knowledge on the issues surrounding the system of prescription charges, Judy Viitanen has long believed that the current system in England is totally unfair and needs reviewing. PRimage have consistently lobbied and supported the well-argued case for a total abolition of prescription charges: it is an important issue that has growing public support. In our opinion, free prescriptions are a long term investment in improving health. Free prescriptions should be seen as a long term investment in improving health – and would be beneficial for those with poorer health and in particular those with long term conditions.

Pharmacy’s place in the new NHS

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

For anyone involved in the UK community pharmacy and pharma industry sectors, Judy Viitanen recommends checking out the useful and directional guide on the NHS reforms by the trade journal, C&D.  PRimage found it very helpful in understanding the bodies that will influence community pharmacy in the new NHS.  You can find the guide on the C&D website.

Health Bill passes first stage in Parliament – PRimage comment

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

As a specialist healthcare communications consultant, PRimage MD Judy Viitanen, has been following the progress and debate on the Government’s comprehensive reforms of the NHS. The Health and Social Care Bill is a complex and far reaching piece of legislation, reflecting the wide ranging nature of the Government’s programme of reform for the NHS in England.


PRimage is largely supportive of the potentially positive elements of the reforms – we believe giving clinicians greater responsibility for commissioning and shaping local health services, increasing public and patient involvement, and putting a greater focus on improving public health are to be applauded. And it must not be forgotten that the NHS needs to find efficiency savings of £20 billion by 2014-15!  In our view it is important that the Government ensures that the new GP consortia are not forced to promote competition between providers – and instead are able to work collaboratively across primary and secondary care boundaries in order to improve services for patients.

As a former District Councillor, Judy Viitanen welcomes the Government’s aim of increasing local democracy in health and that it recognises the importance of health services and local authorities working more closely together for the benefit of patients and the public. That can only be a win:win scenario.

In recent weeks there has been mounting criticism of the reforms from health professionals. For example, the BMA has warned that patients will become ‘internal medical tourists’, with the wealthy shopping round for consortia that offer expensive or rare treatments.

Despite a raft of warnings and concerns, the government’s controversial Health Bill has passed the first stage of its journey through Parliament – with MPs voting 321 to 235 in favour at its second reading. PRimage was interested to see that no coalition MPs voted against the Bill.

The influential cross-party Health Select Committee has already voiced concern and warnings, saying that the ‘surprise’ decision to abolish PCTs had already led to poor decision-making and additional costs in the NHS. But yesterday the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley dismissed their concerns.  And last month David Cameron revealed that GP frustration with the NHS, the profession’s desire to do more and be more involved is the core motivation behind the Health Bill.

If that is the case, PRimage MD, Judy Viitanen, wonders why Doctor’s union, the BMA is stepping up its opposition to the reforms, and has voted for a special representatives’ crisis meeting to discuss the Health Bill.

Demand for automated health stations grows in U.S. health care sector

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Lifeclinic International – the world’s largest supplier of commercial, automated, blood pressure monitors and health stations – reports that while the national health care debate continues in the USA, the private sector is creating innovative ways of utilising health information technology to drive down costs, streamline processes and allow individuals to become more proactive in managing their own health.

Lifeclinic monitors accomplish all of these goals – and the company’s new product line of automated self-testing health stations are rapidly increasing in popularity among retail pharmacies, corporate worksites and medical clinics. The health stations not only measure blood pressure, they also offer a wide variety of other non-invasive tests, such as weight, body-fat, blood oxygen and BMI along with providing important health and OTC/Rx information based on testing outcomes; such as medication or food interactions, diabetes information, or healthy how-to interactive guides.
