The essence of community hospitals

The essence of community hospitals
Description
The statement from Simon Stevens about the role of small hospitals in the NHS is welcome, and unexpected. Those communities who are actively campaigning to keep their valued local hospitals are stopped in their tracks. Can this be right – does the NHS have room now for community hospitals as part of its infrastructure? A clear message from the CEO of the NHS would suggest so.

Flight MH17 and Russia's 'little green men'
Description
Written by Dr Kataryna Wolczuk. "The shooting down of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 in Eastern Ukraine on 17 July has placed the conflict which has engulfed that part of Ukraine into an entirely new context. It has transformed the event from a localised, regional rebellion into a crisis that brings Russia's role into the open, writes Kataryna Wolczuk, of the Centre for Russian and European Studies."

The Conversation: As Russia votes with Security Council, could MH17 be providing a wake-up call?

The Conversation: As Russia votes with Security Council, could MH17 be providing a wake-up call?
Description
Written by Professor Stefan Wolff. The unanimous vote in the UN Security Council on the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over rebel-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine is a welcome step. The resolution, drafted by Australia which lost 37 people in the tragedy, condemns the downing of the aircraft and calls for all states to co-operate with the investigation and demands that armed groups allow open access to the crash site.
