Travel Insurance is not a luxury, it’s essential

According to travel trade body Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), one in five Britons will jet off abroad this summer without any travel insurance.

Travel insurance is always seen as a grudge purchase and people have a “it will never happen to me” attitude, and therefore risk going abroad without travel insurance, especially if the are only travelling to Europe.
However, going to a foreign country can pose more threats of something going wrong than you would imagine.  For a start there could be a language barrier, coupled with unfamiliar surroundings and should something go wrong, if you fall ill, have an accident, your suitcase goes missing or you have all of your possessions stolen – then you are on your own.

“The new NHS” What will it mean to people with rare genetic conditions?

This was the question at the annual Genetic Alliance UK conference yesterday.  Genetic AllianceUK is the national charity of patient organisations and has a membership of over 140 charities supporting all those affected by genetic disorders. 

With the significant changes that are being proposed for the NHS the concern is those with rare genetic conditions will be left without the support and services they need.  It has been proposed that responsibility of care will move from the Primary Care Trust (PTC) to GP’s, and the worry is that there are not enough GP’s who have specialist knowledge about these rare conditions to effectively support these patients needs.  Read more
