MPs warn that six-month delay of cheaper ESN system approved by Theresa May could be ‘tragedy in waiting’
Britain’s emergency services face a “potentially catastrophic” six-month period without a crucial communications system, MPs have warned.
Theresa May, when she was home secretary, approved the purchase of the £1.2bn emergency services network (ESN) as a cheaper option to replace the Airwave communications system currently used by police, fire and ambulance services.
The Commons public accounts committee has found that ESN will be delayed for nine months, which could leave “blue-light” workers including anti-terror officers without any proper means of communication for half a year.
WHSmith, Marks & Spencer, Subway and Greggs have all agreed to cut the proportion of sugary drinks they sell in their hospital shops in England.
NHS England has asked all retailers with hospital outlets to limit the drinks to no more than 10% of the total beverages they sell by next April.
Companies that do not comply will face a total ban on selling sugary drinks in hospital shops.
Campaigners welcomed the move to limit sugar intake in hospitals.
Retailers have been asked to cut sales of drinks such as fruit juices with added sugar and coffees with sugar syrup and NHS England will ask them to provide sales figures to check on progress.
Mental health trusts across the UK are becoming increasingly reliant on private hospitals to deliver care, a BBC Breakfast investigation suggests.
NHS spending on private mental health inpatient beds went up 42% over five years across 40 mental health authorities that responded to freedom of information requests.
Experts say there is a chronic shortage of NHS beds.
It means some patients are placed in private units far from home.
One of these patients was Karl Knights. In his first year at university, Karl had a breakdown, and was taken to a local hospital due to fears that he would take his own life.
Radio and club DJ and presenter, Neev Spencer, has shared a conversation with her best friend Linda, reflecting on the first time she opened up and talked about her struggle with postnatal depression following the birth of her daughter Genevieve.
Neev’s FaceTime call with her friend, who is a GP based in Australia, is the latest film to be released in the Heads Together series, created in the run-up to the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon.
Neev talked about why she felt it was important to share her conversation when she met The Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace earlier this week. The Duchess of Cambridge spearheads the Heads Together campaign with The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Heads Together is the Charity of the Year for this year’s London Marathon.
Broadchurch stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman have posted selfies of themselves to show their support for a BBC mental health initiative.

“I’m delighted so many high-profile people have come together to raise awareness of this important cause.”
