The Welsh Government has vowed to boost awareness of “posit ive lifesty le improvements” such as regular exercise as part of a major new strategy to reduce heart disease by 2016. Health minister Lesley


Griffiths has published a draft version of its Together For Health – A Cardiac Delivery Plan, which is subject to consultation until 26 October. Working with partners


including the NHS, the Welsh Government will focus on prevention, earlier diagnosis and treatment to reduce heart disease deaths. Among the outcomes expected for people will be an improvement in both the access and co-ordination of services that address risk levels – such as exercise referral. Meanwhile, the Welsh Government will promote the use of exercise in reducing heart

disease and will help all Welsh people to take responsibility for their own health. Griffiths says: “We must do more to prevent


avoidable cardiac disease. Where cardiac disease does occur, we want to focus on prompt diagnosis and the best treatment.” Details: http://lei.sr?a=t4X7z


2012 facility could ‘revolutionise healthcare’


The London 2012 anti- doping facilities will be developed after the Olympic and Paralympic Games into a world-class resource that could help revolutionise healthcare. The medical facilities – purpose-built for London 2012 – will be turned into the world’s first MRC-NIHR Phenome Centre, designed to enable researchers to explore the characteristics of disease in order to develop new drugs and treatments for patients. The aim is to help develop

better and more targeted treatment for patients by investigating the phenome patterns of patients and volunteers, by analysing samples – usually blood or urine – very rapidly and on an unprecedented scale. This will help researchers discover new


‘biomarkers’ to explain why one individual or population may be more susceptible to a disease than another. The knowledge will then aid scientists in finding new, safer and more targeted treatments. The new centre will be funded over five


years by an investment of £5m each from the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Department of Health’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). It will build on

and develop the state-of-the-art equipment and expertise of the London 2012 anti-doping facilities, provided by pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline and operated by King’s College London. Health secretary Andrew Lansley says: “Our


investment in this new centre, the first of its kind, promises better targeted treatments for patients with a wide range of common diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and dementia. “Patients will benefit from faster and more


accurate diagnosis, and researchers will be able to develop new drugs and treatments as we understand more about the characteristics of diseases and new sub-types of diseases are discovered.” Details: http://lei.sr?a=B9V1h


“We have worked with Keiser UK for over a decade and have always been impressed by the M3 Bike because of its quality engineering and excellent performance. Indoor cycling is one of our most popular classes so it is vital that we can offer our members and instructors a well designed and quality bike.”
