Benchmarking the countryside: how to measure the unmeasurable using a countryside maturity matrix

, : Benchmarking the countryside: how to measure the unmeasurable using a countryside maturity matrix. Rural Wales ( AUTUMN): 12-13

This paper is a response from the UK's National Health Service to a paper in the Spring issue of this journal which asked: How can we give the countryside a health check? It suggests adoption of an NHS practice (in turn borrowed from industry) which develops a maturity matrix on a key issue, identifies all the significant elements and then describes in words or numbers, as appropriate, the minimum standard and demonstrably better performance.

Schoolchildren in developing countries often have inadequate intakes of iron, due primarily to poor I bioavailability. Increasing meat in the diet could improve both the amount of iron consumed and its availability. The effect of increases in int...

Agmatine has been proposed as the physiological ligand for the imidazoline receptors. It is not known whether it is also involved in the homoeostasis of intracellular polyamine content. To show whether this is the case, we have studied the effect...
