Should we advise patients with sutures not to swim?

Patients often ask when they can swim after a wound has been sutured. Despite such an apparently simple query, evidence supporting any answer seems to be lacking. Many patient information sites advise against swimming after the suturing of wounds1 but fail to provide evidence to support this recommendation. Advice is broad ranging and inconsistent.1 Current information ranges from waiting until the sutures are removed and the wound has healed1 to abstaining from swimming for six weeks postoperatively.2 Patients with external frame fixators are advised that it is permissible to swim in a chlorinated pool or clean sea water, although in practice this is difficult to ascertain and is far from an objective measure, once the pin sites have healed.3 Evidence to back up the advice is scarce.

Clive Peedell: Pet hate is the “yes men” in medicine

Clive Peedell is running hard. He ran 260 km (160 miles) from Nye Bevan’s statue in Cardiff to the Department of Health in London to protest against the 2012 Health and Social Care Act and 66 km for the 66 years of the NHS in support of the recent “Jarrow march for the NHS.” He’s also running for election as a candidate of the National Health Action Party, which he co-leads, challenging David Cameron in the solid Conservative seat of Witney, Oxfordshire. An oncologist at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, he is motivated by his objection to the incursions of the market and the private sector into the NHS.

Recommendations for physical activity in older adults

Older adults find it difficult to meet moderate and vigorous exercise targets. Given that a dose-response exists for physical activity and health benefits, Phillip B Sparling and colleagues argue that a change in message to reduce sedentary time and increase light activities may prove more realistic and pave the way to more intense exercise

Working miracles for the NHS

Since he published his Five Year Forward View in October, Simon Stevens has been walking on water. The chief executive of NHS England is (temporarily) able to do no wrong. Just as Melanesian islanders attribute magical powers to charismatic outsiders, Stevens has acquired a cargo cult of his own, deliciously lampooned in a series of tweets by the journalist Andy Cowper under the hashtag #SimonStevensfacts.
