    The new Health and Care Bill gives NHS Digital powers to create a new ‘medicine registry’ The bill, published earlier this month, will allow NHS Digital to collect a range of information about the use of medicines and their effects in the UK and hold this data in one or more information system(s). The MHRA would be able to then use the information held in an information system to establish and maintain comprehensive UK-wide medicines registries. “This would improve post-market surveillance on the use [of] medicines. For example, where a safety issue has led to the introduction of mea

    Researchers from the 'Therapies for Long COVID (TLC) Study Group' at the University of Birmingham are studying long COVID is and what influences it by pooling data from lots of separate studies to find out the prevalence of reported symptoms and to see what the impacts and complications of long COVID are. Their review showed just how varied long COVID is. Patients may experience symptoms related to any system in the body – including respiratory, neurological and gastroenterological symptoms. The pooled data showed that the ten most commonly reported symptoms in long COVID are fatigue, sho

    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are warning that thermal cameras and other such “temperature screening” products, some of which make direct claims to screen for COVID-19, are not a reliable way to detect if people have the virus. In July 2020 the Agency told manufacturers and suppliers of thermal cameras that they should not make claims which directly relate to COVID-19 diagnosis, and now are reminding businesses to follow Government advice on safe working during COVID-19. Graeme Tunbridge, MHRA Director of Devices, said: "Many thermal cameras and

    A review into the work of a locum consultant radiologist has so far identified "major discrepancies" affecting 12 cases. A full lookback review of 13,030 radiology images was launched last month. The doctor worked at hospitals run by the Northern Health Trust between July 2019 and February 2020. The review steering group chair said it was "images in levels one and two that we are most concerned about". "To date there are 12 level ones and twos [approximately 0.5% of the total number reviewed]," said Dr Seamus O'Reilly, the Northern Trust medical director. "Most of thes

    More than one in three middle-aged British adults are suffering from at least two chronic health conditions, including recurrent back problems, poor mental health, high blood pressure, diabetes and high-risk drinking, according to research that warned that health in midlife is on the decline. The study of “generation X” adults born in 1970 found that those who grew up in poorer families were 43% more likely to have multiple long-term health conditions than their peers from wealthier households. Those who had been overweight or obese as children, who had lower birthweight and who had exper

    The boss of a NHS trust that asked hospital staff for fingerprints and handwriting samples as it hunted a whistleblower is stepping down. Dr Stephen Dunn will leave West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust in the summer after seven years as chief executive. An independent inquiry into the way management handled the affair is expected to report in the autumn. In 2018, Jon Warby received a letter two months after the death of his wife, Susan. It claimed mistakes were made during her bowel surgery. An inquest into her death was subsequently told how she had been given glucose instead of s

    What is next for urgent and emergency care across the country? With the COVID-19 pandemic transforming service delivery and reshaping what was once thought possible, the next challenge is to consider the state of urgent and emergency care services as another difficult winter approaches. Despite moves away from hospital-based care towards alternative solutions, urgent and emergency care is still under great pressure. Join this King's Fund event to hear about the latest debates and solutions to a very challenging issue: trying to ease the pressure on urgent and emergency care delivery.

    Anchor institutions are large organisations, connected to their local area, that can use their assets and resources to benefit the communities around them. Health and care organisations, as well as providing healthcare services, are well-placed to use their influence and resources to improve the social determinants of health, health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. This King's Fund event will explore what anchor institutions are, what they look like in practice and how we can embed some of those ways of working within health and care. We will look at how health and care organisati

    When things go wrong in health and social care, there can be significant consequences for patients, staff, and leaders. But, too often, the voices of people who use services and their families have gone unheard, while staff have feared being blamed for mistakes that result from systemic failings or human error. So how can health and social care leaders at all levels create a just culture, where mistakes lead to learning? And how can organisations take accountability for learning and improving after something goes wrong? The King’s Fund is co-hosting this virtual conference in partner

    In September 2020 the UK Government announced the winners of its first Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health and Care Awards and Kheiron's bid was successful. The funding that's been won will accelerate the roll out and rapid adoption of Mia (Mammography Intelligent Assessment) to address critical workforce challenges in NHS breast screening services in the UK. Kheiron is using the next 3 years to technically deploy and generate the evidence that our AI tool (Mia) can be safely adopted as the second reader in the breast screening workflow. They will be doing this across 15 NHS Breast Sc

    The course will offer a practical guide to Root Cause Analysis with a focus on systems-based patient safety investigation as proposed by the forthcoming National Patient Safety Incident Response Framework which emphasises the requirement for investigations to be led by those with safety investigation training/expertise and with dedicated time and resource to complete the work. This course will include an opportunity for learners to gain a Level 3 qualification (A level equivalent) in RCA skills (2 credits / 20 hours) on successful completion of a short-written assignment.

    This masterclass will cover the new guidance and provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of what needs to be done to comply with the duty of candour; clarify ‘grey areas’ and provide advice on dealing with difficult situations which may arise.

Anyone with responsibility for implementing the duty
