  • Is Diana still front page news?
    You may have noticed that we are approaching the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. In fact if you still read a tabloid newspaper or watch TV in the UK you couldn’t help but be aware of this moment in time. But do we still really care? A swift and unscientific […] The post Is Diana still front page news? appeared first on MHP.

  • The online voices shaping the UK’s healthcare landscape
    If Donald Trump’s election last year showed us anything, it’s that your ability to effectively disseminate messages over social media is incredibly important in influencing people’s views and political participation. This isn’t ‘new’ news; a 2012 study published in the journal Nature, ‘A 61-Million-Person Experiment in Social Influence and Political Mobilization’, suggested that posts on […] The p...

  • Case study: “Never show them how you make the radioactive isotopes”
    In January, the Prime Minister outlined her Brexit priorities at Lancaster House.  This now infamous speech set out a number of negotiating ‘red lines’ – perhaps the clearest being her promise to “bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Britain”.  The implications of this move promised to be […] The post Case study: “Never show them how you make the radioactive i...

  • Gender pay gap: What would you do?
    The BBC took a lot of criticism this week for paying its best known staff salaries far in excess of those earned by most public servants – including the Prime Minister. Much of the criticism was entirely deserved, not least because the BBC revealed a poor record of addressing the gap in pay between its […] The post Gender pay gap: What would you do? appeared first on MHP.

  • Common sense plan to tackle pension timebomb
    Work and Pensions Secretary David Gauke this week announced that an increase in the State Pension Age (SPA) to 68, originally planned for 2044-6, is to be brought forward by seven years, to 2037-9. Not great news for anyone born between 1970-78 and there are 7 million voters in that category. Some cynics have suggested […] The post Common sense plan to tackle pension timebomb appeared first on MHP...

  • Big data: Healthcare’s friend or foe?
    The digital age brought with it the promise of transparency, accountability and freedom of information on an unprecedented scale. However, there is a growing suspicion that data is being used to subvert rather than enhance democracy. This concern has increased the need for a new data framework in healthcare, where the potential benefits of the […] The post Big data: Healthcare’s friend or foe? app...

  • Is the news breaking?
    “They say true character is only shown when no one is looking” so said The Sunday Times’ political editor Tim Shipman as he reflected on the state of the modern UK media. The reality is that in today’s connected digital world, the numbers of times when no one is looking are increasingly rare. That was […] The post Is the news breaking? appeared first on MHP.

  • There are eight million stories….
    As well as being the title of an excellent 1985 EP* by the June Brides, “There are eight million stories” was the iconic sign-off line by the narrator of Naked City , a ground-breaking, documentary-style US cop series that ran from 1958-63. It finished, therefore, around the same time as the last of the baby-boomer […] The post There are eight million stories…. appeared first on MHP.

  • Shifting the goalposts: the quest for a digital NHS
    It was a match made in heaven – a rapidly advancing digital landscape of innovative tech meets an NHS ripe for an ‘information revolution’. Or so we thought. It turns out things aren’t quite that simple. As the NHS reels from the recent spate of cyber-attacks, the Patient Information Forum (PIF) and MHP Health have […] The post Shifting the goalposts: the quest for a digital NHS appeared first on ...

  • Theresa May and the coalition of convenience
    Maybe we should stop being surprised by surprises after the last two years, but there is something in human nature that hankers after explicable order. And so at 10pm last night, even as the exit poll dropped, people simply refused to believe what the numbers were telling them. It was only as the night wore […] The post Theresa May and the coalition of convenience appeared first on MHP.

    Since the election campaign launched, the Stock Market has wobbled less than the major parties’ election campaigns.

    Another day, another election as Scottish voters head to the polls for the seventh time in three years As Nicola Sturgeon took to the stage in Perth this morning to launch her party’s manifesto, her party was on an uncharacteristically unsure footing.

  • How politics is trying to crack the Millennial dome
    It is a simple fact of elections: young people vote less. Following the 2015 General Election, Ipsos Mori estimated that the turnout of people aged between 18-24 was a mere 43%, compared with 77% for their 55-64 year old counterparts. Politicians often find themselves playing a game of supply and demand with their electorate. In […] The post How politics is trying to crack the Millennial dome appe...

  • Women in Westminster
    The 21st century has given rise to more women in politics than ever. Within Parliament female MPs now make up nearly 30% of seats, including Maidenhead, whose Member of Parliament is Theresa May. However, when we break down female representation across UK parties, the picture for May’s Conservative party is quite a depressing one, fielding the […] The post Women in Westminster appeared first on MH...

  • The rise of ‘banalysis’
    During the 2015 General Election campaign my colleague, Nick Laitner, blogged on the concept of a bolicy. That is, a policy proposal floated by a political party that is in fact bxllocks, intended to win headlines rather than ever achieve implementation. Think marching inebriated teenagers to cash machines to pay on the spot fines for […] The post The rise of ‘banalysis’ appeared first on MHP.

    Ah, manifesto week. The week when the election campaign really gets going. The week when political communications machines are at their slickest.

  • Who’s solving the social care crisis?
    The Conservative Party’s pledges on social care made the headlines yesterday, but have they gone far enough to address what is becoming widely accepted as a crisis in social care? Sir Andrew Dilnot, former government advisor, and author of the Dilnot Review, doesn’t think so.  He argues that, whilst the key pledges of introducing a […] The post Who’s solving the social care crisis? appeared first ...

    Calm before the Stormont – the curious lack of coverage from Northern Ireland At one of the most fascinating junctures in Northern Ireland’s recent political history, it is only Jeremy Corbyn’s links with the IRA making headlines. The politics of the day are left largely unreported. The lack of coverage persists in spite of a […] The post Calm before the Stormont – the curious lack of coverage of ...
