Ministers seek to end 'revolving door' for failed NHS managers

Ministers have said they will tackle the “revolving door culture” in NHS management in some areas – and seek to “clarify” whether regulators facilitated roles for former board members at a scandal hit trust.

Infrared spectroscopy is commonly used for testing the strength of various materials, to study archaeological finds, and in forensics. It’s a bit of a niche in medicine, partially due to the fact that the visible spectrum is itself so useful an...

Maidur, Felcy Jyothi Serrao, S.M. DharmaprakashAbstractWet-chemical sol-gel spin coating technique was considered to fabricate ZnO thin films on bare glass substrates with different thickness values (30 nm, 90 nm, 110 nm, 150 nm). The XRD reflections showed a transition from semi-polar crystal growth orientation to polar crystal growth orientation when the thickness was reduced to 30 nm. The nonlinear characteristics of prepared nano-film...

SenthilAbstractNovel architecture like TiO2 nanorod arrays (TNR) incorporating α-alumina (ATNR) thin film have been fabricated on the fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) by a modest and flexible doctor-blade technique based hydrothermal method. α-Al2O3, TNR and ATNR were used as a photoanode in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and their photovoltaic performance was evaluated. The crystallinity, presence of α-Al2O3 on TNR and morphology of the photoanodes were cha...

In this work, we have reported the preparation of the flower-like Cu2MoS4/g-C3N4 composites. The Cu2MoS4 nanosheets were arranged in a flower-like structure by a simple one-step hydrothermal synthesis method and attached to g-C3N4 nanosheets. The as-prepared flower-like Cu2MoS4/g-C3N4 compo...

In this study, modification through loading with SiO2 successfully improved the dispersibility of graphene in chitosan suspensions. By employing a phase-inversion method, cross-linked chitosan/SiO2-loaded graphene (CS/graphene-SiO2) composite beads were prepared. The resulting CS/graphene-SiO2 beads were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy, which clearly showed that graphene was well-dispersed in the chitosan matrix. Adsorption results demonstrated that CS/graphene-SiO2 beads possessed much better adsorption capacity for bilirubin (77.87%) compared to pure chitosan (CS) beads (22.47%), main...

Patients and methods: Patients affected by oligo-mCRC were treated with SRT before or after front-line standard treatments. SRT was delivered according to a risk-adapted protocol. Total body CT (Computed Tomography) scan was done before ther...
