    What is an Adjournment Debate? There is a 30 minute Adjournment Debate at the end of each day's sitting of the House of Commons. They provide an opportunity for an individual backbench MP to raise an issue and receive a response from the relevant Minister. Unlike many other debates, these take place without a question which the House of Commons must then make a decision on.[1] NHS Hysteroscopy Treatment In this debate Lyn Brown MP outlined the issue of significant numbers of women who experience extreme levels of pain when undergoing a hysteroscopy, highlighted by groups such as t

    A doctor who worked at the same private healthcare firm as rogue breast surgeon Ian Paterson has been suspended, it has emerged. Spire Healthcare said Mike Walsh – a specialist in trauma and orthopaedic surgery – was suspended in April 2018 over concerns about patient treatment. Almost 50 of his patients from its Leeds hospital had been recalled. The details emerged following an independent inquiry into Paterson, who is serving a 20-year jail sentence. Earlier this month, an inquiry into the breast surgeon found that a culture of "avoidance and denial" had allowed him to perform

    Shipman, Mid Staffordshire, Morecambe Bay, and now Ian Paterson, the breast surgeon that performed botched and unnecessary operations on hundreds of women. The list of NHS-related scandals has got longer. It's tempting to say the health service has not learned lessons even after a string of revelations and reviews. But is that fair? asks BBC Health Editor Hugh Pym. The inquiry, chaired by Bishop Graham James, makes clear there were failings at every level of a dysfunctional health system when it came to patient safety. The public and private health systems did not compare notes about

    An independent inquiry is expected to call for major changes in the way private hospitals supervise doctors after hundreds of women were put through unnecessary operations by a rogue breast surgeon. Ian Paterson was jailed for 20 years in 2017 after being convicted of 13 counts of wounding with intent and three counts of unlawful wounding. But his surgical malpractice may have harmed more than 750 women over more than a decade. He carried out unnecessary surgery for breast cancer on women who did not have the disease, and put other women who did at risk by using his own unofficial te

    A quarter of children referred for specialist mental health care because of self-harm, eating disorders and other conditions are being rejected for treatment, a new report has found. The study by the Education Policy Institute warns that young patients are waiting an average of two months for help, and frequently turned away. It follows research showing that one in three mental health trusts are only accepting cases classed as the most severe. GPs have warned that children were being forced to wait until their condition deteriorated - in some cases resulting in a suicide attempt -

    A woman has been awarded $10.5 million (£8m) in damages after medical staff left a sponge inside her body. The sponge – which measured 18-by-18 inches and was left behind during surgery – was inside the woman's body for years before she realised. It had been left in her body after she underwent heart surgery at a Kentucky hospital in 2011. The bypass surgery is said to have gone wrong, leaving a mess – and as nurses rushed to deal with the problems, the sponge was left inside her body. It was not discovered for four years, until she had a CT scan in 2015. In the meantime, the s

    Two patients at a hospital in West Lancashire came to “avoidable harm” after medical staff failed to act on concerns raised by nurses, according to a health watchdog. The issue was highlighted by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection of children and young people’s services at Ormskirk Hospital in July and August. In there report CQC stated: “In children and young people’s services we found evidence that there had been occasions when medical staff had not responded to nursing concerns, which led to avoidable harm occurring to two patients.” The document added

    During the debate there were contributions from a range of parliamentarians reflecting on the First Do No Harm report and the implementation of its recommendations in Scotland. Some points of interest from the debate included: Jeane Freeman MSP indicated the intention of the Scottish Government to implement the recommendations of the First Do No Harm report which fall within its remit and powers. Their discussion about the report's recommendation that specialist centres should be set up to provide comprehensive treatment, care and advice for those affected by implanted mesh. W

    Hazardous Hospitals: Cultures of Safety in NHS General Hospitals, c.1960-Present is a three-year research project at the University of Warwick, funded by the Wellcome Trust. It is being conducted by Dr Christopher Sirrs. The publication of the Francis Report into healthcare failures at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust in 2013 dramatically refocused public and political attention on issues of ‘safety’ in the National Health Service. ‘Safety’ has increasingly occupied the attention of policy makers in recent decades, with hospital managers establishing various systems and processes to

    This framework highlights the following five dimensions, which the authors believe should be included in any safety and monitoring approach in order to give a comprehensive and rounded picture of an organisation’s safety: Past harm: this encompasses both psychological and physical measures Reliability: this is defined as ‘failure free operation over time’ and applies to measures of behaviour, processes and systems Sensitivity to operations: the information and capacity to monitor safety on an hourly or daily basis Anticipation and preparedness: the ability to anticipate

    HSIB's initial investigation considered that there may be a specific risk related to the administration of high-risk medicines to frail, elderly patients in hospital. Further investigation has identified specific risks associated with medication prescription and that these risks are not limited to the prescription of high-risk medications in isolation. The following safety issues will form the basis of the wider investigation: The systems and processes which underpin the prescribing of medication for older people admitted to hospital. The main patient safety risks arising from

    The procedure describes immediate action to ensure patient safety, grading of errors (where appropriate) and longer term actions to ensure that individuals, team, group and organisation can learn from errors. This policy is specifically written for all registered staff involved in the prescribing, dispensing, administering or monitoring of medication. The policy is also relevant for managers of such staff and gives instruction for managing staff who have been involved in a medication error.

    In the UK, each year over 1000 babies die or are left with severe brain injury – not because they are born too soon or too small, or have a congenital abnormality, but because something goes wrong during labour. The RCOG does not accept that all of these are unavoidable tragedies, and with the Each Baby Counts project they are committed to reducing this unnecessary suffering and loss of life by 50% by 2020.
