Judy Viitanen thinks this encompasses good advice and the best attitude for 2013. Happy New Year!

Judy Viitanen is ready to be ‘smoke-free’ with Stoptober!

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

After lots of nagging and encouragement from family and friends, PRimage director, Judy Viitanen has decided to stop smoking!  Judy has signed up with the new Stoptober campaign, which starts on October 1st. and will provide a range of free advice and support through Judy’s stop smoking attempt.

Stoptover is based on research that smokers are five times more likely to stay smokefree if they successfully make it through the first four weeks. The aim of the campaign is to target the nation’s 8 million smokers and give support and encouragement throughout the month to smokers who sign up.

Judy is looking forward to using the free mobile app and checking out the ‘Smokefree’ Facebook page for tips and advice.  And the daily text message will help with additional support and encouragement.

For more information, check online at: http://www.smokefree.nhs.uk/Stoptober/ Or ask your pharmacist for advice and a free support pack.  Good luck!

HAPPY 2012! Love and best wishes from Judy Viitanen and PRimage

In 2012….I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you’re going,
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
And may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings.
Happy New Year!

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.

Blue Monday? No, Life is Tickety Boo according to PRimage

Monday, January 17th, 2011

According to psychologists, a combination of filthy weather, financial strains and shattered new year’s resolutions has conspired to make today the most depressing day of the year.

Well, here at PRimage we are determined NOT to have a Blue Monday!  …Life is good and Judy Viitanen counts her blessings and all is tickety-boo.

Today we will concentrate on positive thinking and new business planning opportunities, and also think about booking a winter sunshine break.

“12 months to save the NHS” – PRimage comment

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Public services reforms is the headline media story today – as David Cameron defends NHS reform plans, saying: ‘doing nothing will end in tears’ – http://bit.ly/e6T5VU
The key is for Education Secretary Michael Gove and Health Secretary Andrew Lansley to win over their sternest critics and also win the hearts and minds of the public that these radical changes are what’s needed – and will get results. Everyone in this country faces difficult times ahead – and it’s crucial that that the Government  gets these issues right! …

The Government’s new health policies are aimed at improving NHS performance, reducing bureaucracy and improving the outcomes of treatment for patients. As a specialist healthcare communications consultancy, PRimage totally agree with this – but Judy Viitanen shares some of the concerns voiced by healthcare professionals that the radical shakeup of the NHS could lead to a two-tier health service.

This country certainly needs to tackle its health and social inequalities – and in our opinion the Dept of Health must start to focus on dealing with health inequalities that those members of the community who either aren’t registered with a GP, or see no value in accessing healthcare, continue to suffer. So in this era of NHS reforms it is critical that reducing inequalities becomes a key focus for frontline health providers: not just GPs, but also community pharmacists.
