    An online trend that involves using tiny magnets as fake tongue piercings has led the NHS to call for them to be banned amid people swallowing them. Ingesting more than one of them can be life-threatening and cause significant damage within hours. In England, 65 children have required urgent surgery after swallowing magnets in the last three years. The NHS issued a patient safety alert earlier this month and is now calling for the small metal balls to be banned. It said the "neodymium or 'super strong' rare-earth magnets are sold as toys, decorative items and fake piercings

    The number of children and young people waiting longer than recommended for admission to a mental health bed has increased nearly ten-fold since last summer, according to figures from one NHS region seen by HSJ. There has been major concern about worsening mental health of children and young people through the pandemic, but these are thought to be the first official figures to emerge indicating the extent of the growth in waiting times. Board papers show that, across the NHS’ South East region, from mid-March to mid-April this year, about 50 young people each week were waiting more t

    Multiple concerns were being raised about an inpatient hospital for several years before it was rated ‘inadequate’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), HSJ has learned. Huntercombe Hospital in Maidenhead, which provides NHS-funded mental healthcare for children, was put into special measures in February after an inspection raised serious concerns over the apparent over-use of medication to sedate patients, among other issues. It has since received a further warning notice. The unit, which predominantly treats female patients, had previously been rated “good” by the CQC in 2016 and 2

    Three years ago, my then 11-year-old son developed a slightly swollen eyelid. The first out of hours GP diagnosed an allergic reaction and prescribed anti-histamines; the second diagnosed an eye infection and prescribed drops. Within days, he was admitted to hospital, his face completely unrecognisable. On admission, I suggested that he had glandular fever. I had done that frowned upon thing that patients do; my own research. A Google search had led me to the conclusion that the most likely explanation was periorbital oedema, a less common clinical feature of infectious mononucliosi

    A number of “unusual infections” have been discovered among patients at the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital (RACH), prompting investigation by an NHS trust. NHS Grampian said they were taking a “very precautionary approach” and looking for any potential links that these infections could have to the hospital environment. These precautions include relocating some procedures, with the trust also warning that there may be delays in treatment for a small number of patients. They were keen to point out that the hospital will continue to admit and treat patients as normal whilst the

    My daughter, who has bipolar disorder, received her diagnosis at the very end of a 90-minute psychiatrist consultation. After spending the entire session observing her as if she were a rare specimen, the psychiatrist pronounced her ‘bipolar’, as casually as if he were giving her a driving test result. He then quickly added: “But more interestingly is the fact that your entire body twitches and jerks constantly; I think you may have Tourette’s or some other underlying neurological issue.” He told us he would not treat the symptoms of the bipolar disorder (we had arrived at

    Just 10% of money allocated to help treat young people with eating disorders reached the NHS frontline, a new analysis has revealed. The latest data on NHS mental health spending comes amid concern the pandemic has exacerbated eating disorders in young people, sparking a rise in demand. A report commissioned by MPs compiled by the eating disorder charity Beat, using NHS data, shows local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), who purchase NHS services on behalf of NHS England, spent just £1.1m of the £11m they were given for community eating disorder services in 2019-20. The mone

    Children with asthma are at risk of avoidable deaths in England because of poor NHS systems and a failure to appreciate the dangers posed by the condition. A new investigation by NHS safety watchdog the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) has revealed a series of risks to children with asthma, as concerns emerge of the impact of the pandemic on asthma patients more generally. The latest inquiry was sparked by the deaths of three children between 2014 and 2017. All were caused by asthma attacks which were later the subject of warnings by coroners. In each case HSIB said

    Safety recommendations HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement, as a commissioning body, supports local systems to implement evidence-based interventions, such as standardised information and wheeze management plans, for the parents/ carers of pre-school children. This will be undertaken in conjunction with the British Paediatric Respiratory Society. HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement reviews the recommendations arising from the National Review of Asthma Deaths to prioritise and ensure the implementation of recommendations that are outstanding.

    On Christmas Day, Gail Jackson’s 16-year-old daughter said she was in so much pain she thought she would die. Liliana had been briefly admitted to hospital with Covid in September. Her symptoms never went away and, as time went on, new ones had emerged. “For months she had a relentless, agonising headache, nausea, tinnitus, fatigue and insomnia, but the worst thing was the agonising nerve pain,” said Jackson. “I couldn’t even touch her without her screaming in pain.” On Christmas morning, Jackson drove to hospital with her daughter vomiting from pain in the passenger seat. When they

    A cutting-edge child and adolescent mental health centre hopes to help prevent young people from experiencing mental health problems. As we look hopefully towards a June bonfire of pandemic regulations and restrictions, many recognise that soaring rates of mental health problems and distress amongst our children and young people must be near the top of a 21st century list of challenges in “building back better”. School closures, uncertainty and being cut off from friends and social and sporting events have seen more children and young people referred to CAMHS — a service that was fa

    Having a child with a food allergy can have a devastating effect on all of the family. Research by the University of East Anglia last month (March) revealed that almost half (42%) of parents of children living with food allergies have suffered trauma that meets the criteria for post-traumatic stress symptoms.[1] It’s a shocking figure, but perhaps not surprising. Between 6 and 8% of children have a food allergy, with the most common being eggs, milk and peanuts. The number of people admitted to hospital for severe food allergies has tripled over the past two decades according to research

    Extremely unwell eating disorder patients are having to be tube fed at home by their families owing to a lack of hospital beds, as the Royal College of Psychiatrists reports a rise in people being treated in units without specialist support. Leading psychiatrists are urging the government for an emergency cash investment as the pandemic has prompted a rise in demand for treatment for conditions such as anorexia, amid “desperate pressure in the system”. In interviews with the Guardian, a number of parents told of the struggles of helping a severely unwell person from home. A number of

    A child was twice given double the "safe" dose of a rapid tranquilizer at a hospital run by a troubled NHS trust. The child was put at "significant risk of harm" at Telford's Princess Royal Hospital, said inspectors. Rating children's services inadequate, they said Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) must halt seeing under 18s for acute mental health needs. The trust, in special measures, was working to "urgently address concerns". The Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out a targeted inspection on 24 February prompted by "concerning information" about treatment

    Britain is facing a “terrifying” mental health crisis with tens of thousands more children needing specialist help since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Experts from the Royal College of Psychiatrists have warned the problem facing the country will get worse before it gets better with new analysis revealing almost 400,000 children and 2.2 million adults sought help for mental health problems during the crisis. While the effect of lockdown and coronavirus has affected people of all ages, children appear to be particularly susceptible. Some 80,226 more children and young pe

    Parents were recruited to complete a 21-item survey about the needs of their child with an ASD while in the hospital. ASD diagnosis was reported by parents at the time of the survey. The results of the survey were analysed and evaluated in three distinct categories of need. The authors documented a range of responses associated with ASD-specific needs during hospitalisation. Common concerns included child safety and the importance of acknowledging individual communication methods. The study concluded that in a population of children with ASDs, parents report a diverse range of need

    This project was commissioned because of an issue with multiple medicines records being held by different agencies for local children with complex needs and at the end of life. The project was highly commended by NICE and a poster was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2015 (see poster below). This duplication of records was believed to be a major risk factor for medicines errors and a waste of clinical time. It also meant that parents needed to repeat information about their children’s medicines time and again, as they accessed services, including inpatient services, tertiary cen
