UK house prices 2014: Which area saw the most growth?

first_imgSunday 28 December 2014 4:41 am Share Billy Ehrenberg whatsapp After a roller-coaster year for house prices the results are in: the London borough of Greenwich is the place for price rises.According to data from Halifax, house prices in Greenwich rose 24.6 per cent over the course of 2014, far above the national average of 8.5 per cent and almost twice that of the London average of 13 per cent. The net plus for the year brings the average cost of a house in the UK to £209,428, Halifax says. Here is a breakdown of the top ten gainers in 2014:Crawley is a notable addition: it is the only local authority  outside London to make the list.That’s the good news for sellers, but what about buyers? Houses in Bury, a town between Boulton (to the west) and Rochdale (east), have reduced in price by an average of 4.8 per cent during 2014, while Keighley, northwest of Leeds, is 4.4 per cent cheaper than it was a year ago. All of the fastest 10 fallers are in either the North of England, Wales, or Scotland.   The majority of these gains came in the first half of the year: towards the end of 2014 each three month period showed lower growth, with expansion falling dramatically in October.Buyer sentiment had eased strongly by November, when mortgage approvals, one measure of market sentiment, were down 24.7 per cent from January’s 76-month high of 48,753 according to the British Bankers Association. The figure constitutes a drop of 19.5 per cent compared to November 2013. center_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp UK house prices 2014: Which area saw the most growth?

IDB President Lauds Green House Project in Manchester

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail President of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Luis Moreno, has lauded the Devon greenhouse project, as one that can help to meet world food demand.“In the next 30 years, the world is going to need 50 per cent more of the food that we currently produce, and if you look at the areas of the world where this can be done, there is no doubt that it will be in Latin America and the Caribbean,” Mr. Moreno stated.The IDB President who, along with Finance and Public Service Minister, Audley Shaw, yesterday (Jan.18) toured the project located in Manchester, informed that a team from the IDB will, this week, look at the possibility of making a grant available to expand the project.“You have a basic structure here … to make this type of technology grow in these areas. It’s great,” he said, while urging the farmers to increase production.President of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Luis Moreno (3rd left), looks at strawberries being grown in a greenhouse in Devon, Manchester, when he toured the project yesterday (Jan. 19). Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Audley Shaw (2nd left), accompanied Mr. Moreno on the tour.Minister Shaw, in his remarks, noted that while the first phase of the project was concerned with the production of tubers and vegetable crops, the next phase will seek to increase the equity of farmers in the project.“This is another way of doing agriculture, to make it productive and meaningful and lift the quality of life of the small farmers of Jamaica. We want to get our small farmers involved, get finances for them, so that they can put in their little share of equity, and produce”.In addition, he indicated that “we are going to establish a modern package and storage plant where we will be able to price and transport the produce to hotels and export markets.”The Devon greenhouse project was established in 2004 and is managed by the Christiana Potato Growers Co-operative Association. It comprises eight greenhouses on six hectares (15 acres) of land. Crops under production are cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, sweet peppers cauliflower, sweet and Irish potatoes and strawberries.

World’s first Covid-19 vaccine alternating dose study launches in Nottingham

first_imgWorld’s first Covid-19 vaccine alternating dose study launches in Nottingham The world’s first COVID-19 vaccine study researching alternating doses and intervals of approved vaccines, begins today in Nottingham. The world’s first COVID-19 vaccine study researching alternating doses and intervals of approved vaccines, begins today in Nottingham. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)-supported study, which will be run at the University of Nottingham Health Service, will determine the effects of using a different vaccine for the second dose to the first dose, in addition to two different intervals between doses.The study, classified as an Urgent Public Health study by the NIHR, is being undertaken by the National Immunisation Schedule Evaluation Consortium (NISEC) and the Oxford Vaccine Group, and is backed by £7 million of government funding from the Vaccines Taskforce.Over 800 volunteers, aged 50-years-old and above, are expected to take part in the study referred to as the COVID-19 Heterologous Prime Boost study, or ‘Com-Cov’, across eight sites across England – including in London, Birmingham and Liverpool.The study, run at eight National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) supported sites, will gather immunological evidence on different intervals between the first and second dose for a mixed-vaccine regimen against control groups when the same vaccine is used for both doses. A same-dose regimen is currently implemented for the national COVID-19 vaccination programme, and there are no current plans for this to change. Anyone who has received either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccination as part of the UK-wide delivery plan will not be affected by this study. They will receive their second dose from the same source and over the same 12 week interval. The clinical study will monitor the impact of the different dosing regimens on patients’ immune responses, and whether this can be a viable route to increase the flexibility of the UK’s vaccination programme. It has received ethics approval, as well as approval from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to commence. Should the study show promising results, then the government may consider reviewing the vaccine regimen approach if needed, but only if proven to be safe and recommended by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). This trial will find out if the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine can be safely and effectively boosted by the Pfizer vaccine, and vice versa. This is important to facilitate the longer term roll out of these vaccines in the population.” The study will initially have eight different arms, testing eight different combinations, but more products may be added:Oxford/AstraZeneca and Oxford/AstraZeneca – 28 days apartOxford/AstraZeneca and Oxford/AstraZeneca – 12 weeks apart – as a control groupPfizer/BioNTech and Pfizer/BioNTech – 28 days apartPfizer/BioNTech and Pfizer/BioNTech – 12 weeks apart – as a control groupOxford/AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech – 28 days apartOxford/AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech – 12 weeks apartPfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca – 28 days apartPfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca – 12 weeks apartThe 13-month study will monitor the impact of the different dosing regimens on patients’ immune responses, which have the potential to be higher or lower than from the same dose regimen.If the study shows promising results, the MHRA would formally assess the safety and efficacy of any new vaccination regimen before it would be rolled out to patients.Deputy Chief Medical Officer and Senior Responsible Officer for the study Professor Jonathan Van-Tam said: “Given the inevitable challenges of immunising large numbers of the population against COVID-19 and potential global supply constraints, there are definitely advantages to having data that could support a more flexible immunisation programme, if ever needed and approved by the medicines regulator.“It is also even possible that by combining vaccines, the immune response could be enhanced giving even higher antibody levels that last longer; unless this is evaluated in a clinical trial we just won’t know.“This study will be a promising opportunity to gain greater insight into how we can use the vaccines to stay on top of this nasty disease.”Professor Andrew Ustianowski, NIHR Clinical Lead for COVID-19 Vaccination Programme and Joint National Infection Specialty Lead, said: “This is another exciting step forward in finding a variety of vaccine options for the UK and globally, for which the NIHR is integral to ensuring the participant recruitment for this study and the gaining of robust data on safety and effectiveness.“We need people from all backgrounds to take part in this trial, so that we can ensure we have vaccine options suitable for all. Signing up to volunteer for vaccine studies is quick and easy via the NHS Vaccine Research Registry.”Matthew Snape, Associate Professor in Paediatrics and Vaccinology at the University of Oxford, said: “This is a tremendously exciting study that will provide information vital to the roll out of vaccines in the UK and globally. “If we do show that these vaccines can be used interchangeably in the same schedule this will greatly increase the flexibility of vaccine delivery, and could provide clues as to how to increase the breadth of protection against new virus strains.” /Public Release.

Study leads to £3.4billion investment in Scottish affordable housing

first_imgStudy leads to £3.4billion investment in Scottish affordable housing A study by the University of Liverpool has resulted in the investment of £3.4billion into affordable new homes by the Scottish Government.Researchers from the Department of Geography & Planning were commissioned by the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, Shelter Scotland and Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland to undertake research into housing needs in ScotlandThey identified the need for 10,600 dwellings per annum, or 53,000 over the period 2021-26 which would require approximately £3.4bn investment.They also recommended that the geography of housing in Scotland needs to be addressed due to the much larger overall housing need in and around Edinburgh and Glasgow rather than in other parts of Scotland. New affordable housing also needs to reflect the changing demographic structure in Scotland with more accommodation needed for older people.The study took into consideration the current housing situation, proposed housing projects between 2021 and 2026, the number of households currently in inadequate housing and how that could would increase alongside the projected supply of affordable lettings over the period.Liverpool planning expert, Dr Richard Dunning, who headed up the project said: “The current pandemic has highlighted the significance of everyone having a high-quality, affordable home to live in. It is incredibly important for health, wellbeing and the economic capabilities of countries in the short and long term. This research has shown that a small increase in Scottish Government funding over the next five years could provide every household in Scotland with an adequate home.”The study built on previous research from 2015 which led to the Scottish Government making a substantial increase in their funding for affordable housing between 2016 and 2021.The research was led by the University of Liverpool in partnership with the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Glasgow and the University of Cardiff. /Public Release.

Rebuilding Mental Health Support For Young Victorians

first_imgRebuilding Mental Health Support For Young Victorians VIC PremierYoung people in Bendigo will get access to the mental health services they deserve with a multi-million dollar refurbishment of the local youth prevention and recovery care thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.The Victorian Budget 21/22 invests $3.8 billion towards decade-long mental health reform, delivering more community based services, more help for those with acute needs, more early intervention and a new dedicated system to support our kids. An estimated $700 million of this landmark package will flow to the regions.The Budget includes $842 million in mental health and wellbeing support for children and young people – including $141 million to deliver five new, and upgrade three existing, Youth Prevention and Recovery Care units (Y-PARCs).The is expected to create approximately 400 jobs, with all projects expected to be completed by 2024.Offering a short‑term ‘step up’ from community care or ‘step down’ from hospital, Y-PARCs are staffed 24 hours, with support offered in a home-like setting, with shared kitchen, dining, lounge room and activity spaces.Bendigo is one of three existing Y-PARCs, alongside Dandenong and Frankston, that will share in $18 million in funding to undergo a significant refurbishment.The facilities will be designed to create a welcoming, safe and therapeutic environment with private bedrooms complete with ensuite bathrooms. Communal kitchens, dining and living areas, breakout spaces and an outdoor garden will provide ample space for leisure, recreational activities and family visits.The five new Y-PARCs, totalling 50 beds for young people aged 16 to 25 years, will be located in Melbourne’s North Eastern Metropolitan region, as well as the Barwon South-West, Gippsland, Grampians and Hume regions.Delivering better support for young Victorians is one of the key’s to the Labor Government’s plan to rebuild the state’s mental health system. It’s why the Budget also includes a $200 million School Mental Health Fund, which schools will use to deliver programs, staff and other support specific to their school community’s needs.The Fund will be rolled out to all regional and rural government schools as a priority from Term 3, 2022, with metropolitan schools to follow from 2023. Schools will be able to draw from a range of evidence-based measures proven to work – from the ‘Positive Education’ model to therapy dog programs to mental health first aid training.As stated by Minister for Mental Health James Merlino“Our mental health system is failing young Victorians – and their families. This is the case right across the state including right here in Bendigo. All the research tells us it’s critical we give our young people the mental health support they need, early and that is exactly what we are delivering.”As stated by Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan“This investment means more young people will be able to receive treatment and care close to their family, support networks and local community – which we know contributes positively to clinical and personal recovery.”As stated by Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards“We know from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System that our system isn’t coping. This is why it’s essential we upgrade existing youth prevention and recovery care units – and build new ones.” /Public Release.

St. Ann’s Bay Hospital to be Expanded at a Cost of $140 Million

first_imgSt. Ann’s Bay Hospital to be Expanded at a Cost of $140 Million Health & WellnessSeptember 1, 2013Written by: Garfield L. Angus Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, on Friday, August 30, broke ground for the expansion of the St. Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital in St. Ann at a cost of $140 million.The project, which is being funded by the National Health Fund (NHF), will provide additional theatre facility and recovery area, and improve overall care to patients.Phase one will cost some $59 million and will entail construction of a 3,572- square foot building, which will house two additional theatre sites, staff lounge, and consultants’ offices, along with a six-bed recovery area.The scope of work includes construction of a thick concrete roof and traditional reinforced block walls with specialised walls and floor finishes, installation of central air conditioning units as well as relevant sanitary fixtures, and commissioning of medical gases, surgical lights, and a fire protection system.Phase two will run concurrently with phase one, and involves the acquisition of mainly surgical equipment and furniture.Dr. Ferguson said that the expansion is needed, as it will better enable the hospital to serve residents of the parish and adjoining areas. The institution caters to persons in St. Ann, while patients are referred from St. Mary, Portland, Trelawny, Clarendon, St. Catherine, and St. Andrew.“The St. Ann’s Bay Hospital is experiencing an increase in the number of surgeries from a little over 2, 700 in 2008, to more than 3,000 by 2011.  The hospital serves a population of approximately 365,000. It was when I visited… in 2012 and saw the conditions in the accident and emergency department that I decided that we would begin work immediately to make improvements to the facility. I know the importance of having good service and facilities, and my commitment is to put the health sector and the people of Jamaica on the path to achieving our National Development Goals outlined in Vision 2030,” Dr. Ferguson stated.He said that the project should be completed by the end of this financial year, and urged the contractor to “ensure that we get value for money through the provision of the highest quality service that you can offer. Complete the work within the timeframe, and ensure that it is done within the budgetary boundaries established.”In the last calendar year, the Government spent some $375 million on infrastructure improvement projects in the public health sector.This year, over $500 million has been expended for upgrading work at health facilities, Minister Ferguson informed.
