Centrepoint's research shows that for each one of those young people we see on the streets, dozens more are sleeping on the sofas of extended family and friends and, in some cases, in the beds of strangers.
Hospital's unflinching look at the inner workings of five busy London hospitals lays bare the daily challenges for the NHS and its staff as they battle to care for patients at a time of unprecedented financial pressure, with a £22billion funding deficit and rising demand.
This is absolutely typical of the Health Secretary's scheming ineptitude, no different from an entirely unnecessary and avoidable dispute with talented, hard-working junior doctors. Doing the wrong thing, for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time. Parliament is there for a reason: rather than howling that this is the latest attempt to privatise the NHS, its members would do well to point out that this is just bloody stupid.
The uncertainty created by Brexit means that the reliance in recent years on recruitment from the EU is no longer available to shore up the numbers. Our NHS staff cannot keep giving more at the same time that we are giving them less, the Government needs to reinstate bursaries and end pay restraint - we cannot afford not to.
Donald Trump succeeded in becoming the American President by promising to be hostile towards foreign people - by blaming them for the problems his potential voters were experiencing.
Recently the media has been full of stories about the perilous situation of the country's NHS. We know that A&E is overloaded and overcrowded. That's ...
The NHS is facing a 'humanitarian crisis'. This was the message from the Red Cross as we entered the New Year. It may have sounded a bit dramatic, but reports from across the country certainly suggest that services are facing significant pressures.
After a visit to another equally as amazing sonogram specialist to make sure I did not have breast cancer, I found out that I was more than likely fine. Through their conversations with me, my team of NHS Doctors determined that the soy protein supplements I was taking to get my swell on at the gym were causing me to grow breasts. Whew, that was a relief.
We are starting to witness a shift in public opinion towards mental health. This is thanks not only to pioneering campaigners, but also an increasing number of celebrities, sports people and public figures who are willing to speak honestly about their experiences. But as the walls of silence begin to tumble, and the societal stigma around mental health begins to subside, there is concern that as more people seek treatment, they will find there just aren't services there to help them.
This weekend is World Cancer Day; a day which is based around the theme of unity. Cancer affects us all at some point in our lives, may it be ourselves, a family member of a friend. That is why we must remain united in our determination to beat this disease for good.
My cancer has made me a more anxious person, compared to the incredibly confident young woman I was before. Nothing ever worried me. Now I get upset easier. I've had a big reality check. But I'm working, I'm living my life, and as you read this I'll be fulfilling a lifelong dream by travelling around Asia for three months with my best friend. This is what I should have been doing when I left university. This is why I've been so frustrated.
Once upon a time, in 2013, in England and Wales, there were 76 people known to have died by suicide in prison. This was a higher rate of such deaths t...
Well, yes I am a health care assistant. I currently work in a GP surgery but I was also an employee within an NHS hospital for many years. I love my job and am proud of what I do, it gives me the opportunity to help people and truly make a difference every day.
With this being my 50th Huffington Post blog, I had made a plan for what I'd write about, but like all plans you make when you have ageing parents those plans can go out of the window very quickly.
To the strangers who removed my breasts last week, thank you. Thank you for doing the job you do, which may well lead to me being alive for longer; to me spending more days and weeks and years with my family.
The government must acknowledge that healthcare workers are uniquely placed to provide solutions to the problems we face. They must engage and work with unions, like the BMA, and listen to our ideas and concerns rather than impose draconian change like the junior doctors contract.
