Neal: Hello and welcome to Health Professional Radio. I’m your host Neal Howard. Thank you so much for listening with us today. About eighty percent of Internet users seek online health information. About fifty five percent of the user search for medical treatment or procedure information. There’s all kinds of information online, on television, on radio having to do with the healthcare profession. Many of us sometimes mistakenly think that being a physician, a specialist, a surgeon equals huge dollar signs. Now as it is the case that there are some pretty good salaries to be had in the healthcare profession, it’s sometimes not the money that you make – it’s the money that you keep that defines your wealth. Our guest in studio today is Bob Holdsworth – a successful entrepreneur and also the co-author of “Secrets of Peak Performers: Volume II.” He’s operated many healthcare facilities, businesses having to do with First Responding. He also trains people in the fine art of First Responding. But today, he is here to talk about managing wealth – some of the things to do when you find your wealth threatened and how to market yourself to be a better healthcare provider when people are looking for your services. How are you doing today Bob?

The Health News United Kingdom April 13 2018

  • New figures show that hospitals are spending as little as £3 day on food for patients, despite rising numbers of cases of malnutrition. Data reveals 13 trusts spending less than five pounds a day on food, with just £2.61 a day spent by one NHS hospital – little more than the daily spend in prisons. Labour has pledged to introduce new legal minimum standard for hospital food, to ensure patients were better nourished.
  • Inspectors say that some of the failings that allowed rogue surgeon Ian Paterson to harm patients have been found to be widespread across private hospitals. The Care Quality Commission said it was concerned about the “old-fashioned” approach to consultants which led to a lack of monitoring and checks. The regulator said it meant there was a “real danger” poor practices were not being picked up or challenged. Private hospitals said they were responding quickly to the findings.
  • Underpaid, short-staffed and sick with stress – staff at Birmingham’s hospitals are increasingly feeling the strain. According to the latest NHS Staff Survey results, one in seven members of staff at Walsall Healthcare (15.2 %) said they rarely or never look forward to going to work, while it was one in eight (13.1%) at both Heart of England and the Dudley Group.
