Cambridge Theranostics is a bio-tech company, evolved out of Cambridge Uni- versity and the British Heart Foundation based at the Babraham Institute, involved in cutting edge research towards the gov- ernment’s QIPP agenda - focusing on the PREVENTION of the alarming increas- ing rate of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Having worked in partnership with leading global researchers from Nestle, they have recently launched a compact delivery of the key cardio-vascular element of the Mediterranean diet that has been proven globally by renowned researchers to be effective in the PREVENTION of heart dis- ease and stroke, branded as Ateronon.

The Mediterranean diet is associated with 30% reduction of mortality from cardio- vascular events, similar to the level of as- pirin which is the preeminent life saving drug in cardiology.

Cambridge Theranostics will be running a series of pilots across the NHS to assist with the QIPP agenda, interested parties should contact Collette Holt on 0161 242 6876 ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Counterweight is a novel and exten- sively evaluated approach for addressing obesity in primary care.

Primary care clinicians participate in a competency-based training and mentor- ing programme to promote modest weight loss (5-10%) and then weight (loss) main- tenance using evidence based approach- es.

Evaluation has demonstrated that if clini- cians are provided with this training and mentoring programme and robust systems to support weight management, they can achieve and maintain clinically beneficial weight loss in their obese patients.

The programme is not only clinically ef- fective, but also cost effective using the economic model by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Counterweight is highly cost effective and under best case scenario is referred to as “dominant”. This means it is more clinical- ly effective and cheaper than providing no weight management intervention.
