The journal aims at overcoming current fragmentation in research and publication, promoting consistency in pursuing relevant scientific themes, and supporting finding dissemination and translation into practice. It is now acknowledged that health promotion at the individual level has little effectiveness and tends to amplify socio-economic differences in health. Moreover, epidemiological studies are post hoc and, particularly in the field of non-communicable diseases, may give results only many years after the introduction of potential hazards in the environment. Therefore, sophisticated community-based interventions are required to strengthen causal inferences as well as accurate and exhaustive ways to evaluate and summarize the evidence creating a bridge between research and public health. In line with the latest JCVI advice, a spring booster should be offered to immunosuppressed aged 12 years and over, three months after they receive their first booster . Health Trust vaccination hubs are still open for walk-in boosters for anyone aged 16 and over who is at least three months from their second vaccine dose.

Berkshire Care Home provides support for 58 elderly people, some of whom have dementia. Masks are no longer required on many EU flights, but countries including Germany, Italy and Spain keep the rule.
Hot flushes, low mood and difficulty sleeping are common side effects – but there are more than 30 that could indicate oestrogen levels are dropping. This happens during the period of transition before the menopause, known as perimenopause. It can last for up to a decade and trigger allergies, body odour, dizziness, restless legs, loss of confidence and panic attacks. Introducing mandatory menopause training in medical schools could prevent thousands of women from being misdiagnosed – and also save the NHS huge sums of money. The UK Health Security Agency will now only publish Britain-wide updates twice a week, on Monday and Thursday.

They look like high-tech smart speakers or designer coffee tables and come with grand claims they can purge rooms of harmful pollutants, allergens, bacteria, fungal spores and even the Covid virus. Air purifiers – which suck in a room’s air and filter it before pumping it back out – are must-haves for health-conscious consumers, it seems. A survey from the Government’s Office for Product Safety and Standards found one in 12 Britons owned one.
