Started on 15 October, the London Airspace Consultation (LAC) will run until January 21, focusing on planned airspace alterations over southern England as well as to help with the upgradation of the UK s airspace structure. LAC seeks at receiving local feedback on Gatwick’s airspace motorway network , and to modernise airspace with new technology. Head of corporate responsibility at Gatwick, Tom Denton, said, Gatwick is committed to leading the way in terms of airspace innovation and operation, which is why we were so keen to be the first major UK airport to work with NATS to fully review and consult on our airspace. This consultation is said to be part of a wider programme of proposed changes to deliver the UK s Future Airspace Strategy developed by the Civil Aviation Authority with the support of the aviation industry. Denton added, This project gives us an opportunity to further reduce the number of people affected by noise, as well as focus on further reducing Co2 emissions and air quality impacts. Therefore this is an important time for local people and those who live within our flight paths, who now have a once in a lifetime opportunity to give their feedback and influence the future of our airspace. Upon completion, outcomes of the consultation will be made available online for stakeholders and the public to view and give their opinions. (c) 2013 Euclid Infotech Pvt. Ltd.

Bugg spoke out on the issue if education alongside Katy B and members of Drenge, Palma Violets and Swim Deep as part of NME’s Young Britannia cover feature. You can read the full interview in this week’s issue, available digitally and on newsstands now. Asked for what he thinks the meaning of education is, Bugg says: “I failed my GCSE music theory test. Teachers should be giving kids guitars, giving them instruments instead of teaching them what a fucking semi-quaver is. It might be useful to know but it’s not what is really important: music comes from the soul. Even if it’s just three chords, if you’re being honest and singing about something that means something to you, that’s what music is about.” “Let kids pick up an instrument and discover it for themselves and enjoy it,” he added. “I got bored of music at school. I hated it. For working class bands it’s hard to find time to practise because you’ve all got to have jobs. School’s that time when you’re all together and you have got that place.” Bugg is set to release his second album, ‘Shangri La’, on November 18. The follow-up to last year’s self-titled debut is named after Rick Rubin’s Malibu studio, where the 19 year old singer-songwriter recorded the album. Rubin produced the album, and it features Jason Lader on bass, Matt Sweeney on guitar and Pete Thomas [The Attractions] on drums.
Diaverum grows business by 30 percent in the United Kingdom
Commenting on this success, UK Managing Director Mick Hartnett said. This is a very strong message to the market. It demonstrates the confidence both the NHS and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has in Diaverum as a truly viable private sector partner. They are acknowledging our patient centered focus and how we are able to optimize limited health care budgets to deliver value, investment and patient excellence in the health care system. With the clinical responsibility of the patients remaining with the Trust, Diaverum will continue to work closely with the Trust to investigate opportunities to broaden the healthcare services offered and further improve patient care. In addition to offering haemodialysis treatment, Diaverum will promote self-care and work with the Trust to identify other treatment modalities, for example introducing nocturnal dialysis. Commenting on self-care Mick Harnett says, Studies have shown that patients who take more involvement in their own care tend to enjoy a better quality of life due to gaining more independence, with improved medical outcomes. We have seen very positive results in our other clinics for patients participating in some form of self-care, and we look forward to continuing this work in Birmingham. Patients will also benefit from providing feedback via a short quarterly patient questionnaire, the patient passport system and the patient education material which Diaverum will introduce across the new clinics. Commenting on the Diaverum approach, Dag Andersson, CEO and President of Diaverum said, While the UK is growing strongly, the senior management remains very close to our clinic operations, and are highly accessible for patients, staff and the referring NHS renal teams. This means our senior managers have an intimate understanding of customer needs and are thus able to act quickly and decisively to ensure our service always delivers. Working with iWantGreatCare in the UK, is enabling us to use patient feedback to provide the best renal care possible and create a standard of quality. About Diaverum At Diaverum, our mission is to improve the quality of life for renal patients by revitalizing them both physically and emotionally.
