There have been just over 3,000 lab-confirmed cases.

But the HPA says these reported cases are the tip of the iceberg and for each one, there will be around 288 that go unreported.

NHS facing 'tough savings challenge'

The NHS in England has been warned it must raise its game if it is to hit the ambitious savings targets it has been set and maintain services to patients.

The health service has been asked to find efficiencies of up to £20bn by 2015 to cope with rising demands.

The National Audit Office found it had made a good start, achieving virtually all its forecast £5.9bn in 2011-12.

But the report warned the push would get harder, as the easiest savings had been made first.

Well done Routes Healthcare Sale and Manchseter on your fantastic audit!

On working in partnership with one of the largest councils in the country Yvonne Barlow, Routes Branch Manager Manchester said “I’m delighted with the feedback from the recent audit, it caps off a wonderful year of supplying health, social and childcare professionals.  I’d like to thank everyone within the Manchester Branch, it’s the fantastic teamwork that has enabled us to achieve this result, and re-enforces the company’s ethos of Excellence in All We Do!  So, not only an excellent result but we have also been offered extra work”.  I received the following direct written feedback immediately after:  

“Yvonne, It was good to meet with you again this afternoon and I am pleased to confirm the positive result of the audit.  I have now put Routes on the distribution lists for shifts at various units.  For any candidates who are accepted for Children's Residential they will need a care profile (new format from January 2013) and must take this along with their CRB for their first shift at any of the units

The roles are Children's Residential Support Worker and Night Residential Support Worker and candidates require care and control training and must have twelve months experience of working in a children's residential setting.

We also have placements in the Quick Access Centre and the Homeless Hostels, there is no specific training required but candidates must have an enhanced CRB.”

Airedale Hospital praised for elderley care

Airedale Hospital has been praised for the way it treats elderly patients in a national report by a health watchdog.

The State of Care report published on Friday by the Care Quality Commission, highlights the findings of an unannounced visit to the Steeton hospital last year.

Assessors focused on whether patients, particularly vulnerable older people, were treated with dignity and respect and whether their nutritional needs were being met. The hospital is praised for piloting the Butterfly scheme to help patients who have memory loss due to dementia.
