Figures, drawn from data published by NHS Improvement, which oversees health trusts, show the total spend on temporary staff last year was £2.9billion. Of this, analysts say 16 per cent goes to emergency departments, which equates to £1.27million a day. Dr Chris Moulton, vice president of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, said: “These figures show Government interventions to try to avert the winter crisis have been too little too late. We know winter is coming every year.
The pioneering method takes thousands of images of developing embryos in incubators to select those most likely to lead to a live birth. The pictures, which are recorded every 10 to 20 minutes using time-lapse imaging, are fed into a computer which uses algorithms to rank the best eggs to select to be implanted. A study has found it boosts the number of IVF births by a quarter.
Raymond Horner, 84, a former postman from Bishop Auckland, County Durham, said he was “shouting in pure agony” in the A&E department at Darlington Memorial Hospital last week as staff struggled to cope with the number of patients and lack of available beds. His family said patients had to sit on the floor as they waited to be seen by staff just before New Year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
