Today’s top health news

According to an analysis of NHS proposals, one in six A&E departments face being closed or downgraded in the next four years, reports TheGuardian.com. As many as 33 casualty departments across the UK could be lost by 2021 in an attempt to save £22bn from the NHS’s budget. The plans are part of efforts to plug a £22bn hole in the health service budget. Health officials insist the changes will come alongside efforts to modernise services and increase specialist urgent care. An NHS spokesman said: “The number of people seeking urgent care is on the rise so overall we expect the range of services available to them to expand in the coming years. Within that overall expansion, it may be possible to improve care and save lives with some concentration of specialist urgent services.”
