GP’s payouts for dementia diagnosis, Cumbria is the best place for a family and Renee Zellweger’s new face
22nd October 2014

Cash for dementia diagnosis

Doctors could receive a £55 pay out each time they successfully identify dementia in a patient. 

The NHS says it is planning to roll out the new measures in a bid to increase the rate of dementia diagnosis. 

But the proposed move has been condemned by Dr Iona Heath, a north London GP and former president of the Royal College of GPs. 

Some doctors and patient groups have said NHS leaders have gone too far.

Cumbria is the best place to raise a family

A picture postcard village in Cumbria has been named as the best place to raise a family. 

St Bees came out top in a study that took into account factors such as exam results, cost of housing, salaries and crime rates. 

Once home to Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson, the small village with a population of 1,800 is five miles from the lake district. 

A typical two bedroom home costs £140,000 while the average salary is £27,200. 

Renee Zellweger is unrecognisable

Hollywood star Renee Zellweger looked like a totally different human being as she stepped out in LA this week. 

Photos of her on the red carpet at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards at the Four Seasons Hotel in California on Monday sparked rumours of plastic surgery.

But the actress told People yesterday that the rumours were ‘silly’.
