    In order to support the NHS Priorities set out for 2022/2023 in delivering significantly more elective care to tackle the elective backlog and to reduce long waits, this exclusive webinar from GovConnect will take a look at the developing approaches to patient care using collaborations with providers delivering treatments in the home in order to support patient flow. This webinar will explore: How teams have innovated to provide hospital-at-home during the Covid-19 crisis and what’s needed to maintain the momentum of change? What is the future direction for hospital-at-home,

    The latest expert guidance on routine operations recommends: Within 10 days of your planned surgery date If you have a positive test, or COVID-19 symptoms, elective surgery should not take place because you may be infectious to others (as well as risks to you). Between 10 days and 7 weeks before your planned operation date Reduce your risks of catching COVID-19. If meeting people, consider social distancing, wearing a facemask, opening windows or meeting outdoors. If you test positive or have COVID-19 symptoms: You MUST inform your surgical team.

    Medical records contain a plethora of information, from a patient’s diagnoses and treatments to marital status to drinking and exercise habits. They also note whether a patient has followed medical advice. A health provider may add a line stating that the patient is “noncompliant” or “non-adherent,” signalling that the patient has been uncooperative and may exhibit problematic behaviours. Two large new studies in the US found that such terms, while not commonly used, are much more likely to appear in the medical records of Black patients than in those of other races. The first

    The average number of patients each individual GP is responsible for has increased by 15%, or around 300 people, since 2015, the BMA has said. This is due to the ‘slow but steady haemorrhaging’ of GPs over the last few years, which has led to pressures on services growing ‘even more acute’, it suggested. The Association’s statement comes in response to the latest GP workforce data – published by NHS Digital (10 February) – which showed that 188 FTE GPs left between December 2020 and December 2021. Dr Farah Jameel, chair of the BMA’s GP committee, said the figures are the direct

    A life-saving campaign is being launched by the NHS to urge people to learn how to spot signs of a heart attack. The survival rate for heart attack sufferers is seven in 10, rising to nine in 10 for those who have early hospital treatment. The most common sign of a heart attack is chest pain, but other symptoms to look out for include chest, arm, jaw, neck, back and stomach pain, lightheadedness or dizziness, sweating, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, coughing and wheezing. The health service are encouraging anyone experiencing these indicators to call 999. I

    Results More participants receiving ketamine reached full remission of suicidal ideas at day three than those receiving placebo: 46 (63.0%) of 83 participants in the ketamine arm and 25 (31.6%) of 73 in the placebo arm (odds ratio 3.7 (95% confidence interval 1.9 to 7.3), P<0.001). This effect differed according to the diagnosis (treatment: P<0.001; interaction: P=0.02): bipolar (odds ratio 14.1 (95% confidence interval 3.0 to 92.2), P<0.001), depressive (1.3 (0.3 to 5.2), P=0.6), or other disorders (3.7 (0.9 to 17.3, P=0.07)). Side effects were limited and no manic or psychotic

    Unable to move and with her newborn baby crying out of reach, Neya Joshi was left alone for hours on an understaffed maternity ward and had to beg for a glass of water. “It was awful, I was so helpless and so desperate, and no one was interested in helping me. I have never felt fear like it,” she said. The medical copywriter, 30, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder months after giving birth to her son Arjun at Croydon University Hospital in May 2020 and had therapy for a year to recover from the trauma. She is one of thousands of mothers across the country experien

    Inconsistency in visiting restrictions It is now evident that there are no clear guidelines about how patients can be supported in hospital and in care homes. Page 3, paragraph 3 of the Government's ‘Guidance on Care Home Visiting’ says: “There are no nationally set restrictions on friends and family visiting their loved ones in care homes. We expect and encourage providers to facilitate visits wherever possible and to do so in a risk assessed way”. From next week, restrictions related to care homes in England will be eased. But how are family and friends expected to know about curren

    Nightclubs have reopened, concerts have been given the go-ahead and football stadiums are welcoming fans - but there are still restrictions on face-to-face GP consultations. Only a limited number of patients are being invited into surgeries, where there continue to be strict rules on physical distancing. Edinburgh GP Dr Carey Lunan says she understands why the situation is confusing. "The difference between a healthcare setting and, say, a restaurant or a football stadium, is that we have people coming into our building who are much more vulnerable and frail and don't have a cho

    Researchers at the University of Derby and their regional, national and international partners are working collaboratively to develop bespoke support pathways for patients with Long Covid. Led by Dr Mark Faghy, they are currently running a series of projects to understand the determinants of recovery which captures the lived experience and informs a bigger piece of work to develop a holistic view of the key stakeholders that are required to develop pathways that can improve patient outcomes. One part of this is the launch of a new Delphi Consensus statement which seeks to obtain inp

    The public are being urged not to put off seeking help for worrying cancer symptoms because of NHS pressures. NHS England chiefs said record numbers were being seen for check-ups before Omicron hit - and despite the current situation cancer was being prioritised. There have been nearly 50,000 fewer cancer diagnoses across the UK since the start of the pandemic, Macmillan Cancer Support say. This risks an increase in late-stage diagnoses, reducing survival chances. Past surveys have suggested people are reluctant to come forward during surges in Covid cases because they did

    NHS dentistry is "hanging by a thread" with some patients facing two-year waits for check-ups, the British Dental Association has said. Department of Health data analysed by the BBC shows almost 1,000 dentists working in 2,500 roles across England and Wales left the NHS last year. One woman told how she had been in pain for more than a year while waiting to have root canal surgery. NHS England said patients who most needed care should be prioritised. Pamela Carr, 58, from Carlisle, has been looking for an NHS dentist to fix her root canal since November 2020. "I've bec
