    This webinar is part of the HSJ Elective Care Recovery Virtual Series. To clear the waiting list backlog, hospitals will need to drive more elective activity within capacity and resource constraints. It demands the need to think differently and to work differently, questioning assumptions about the ‘normal’ ways of doing things. In this session we’ll explore innovative ideas, digital interventions and transformation programmes designed to free up time in elective pathways. Key topics include: Patient-initiated follow-ups Reducing outpatient appointments Pre-operative transformation / digitisation Investing in digital tools to improve efficiency in elective care pathways Register

    In the first of the Health Services Journal (HSJ) Elective Care Recovery Virtual Series, we’ll be exploring the requirements of the Elective Recovery Plan – which was published in February - and the role that digital innovations can play in tackling long waiting lists and ensuring patients are prioritised by clinical need. We will start by hearing from Sir Jim Mackey, chief executive, Northumbria Healthcare Trust and national director for elective care recovery about the broad direction of the plan and its key asks of NHS organisations. Then we will look at the role that digital innovations can play in supporting patients and clinicians and hear from some examples where this has been put into practice. Viewers will be able to pose questions to the panellists during the discussion. Speakers include: Sir James Mackey, national director of elective recovery and chief executive, Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust Viki Jenkins, heart failure advanced nurse practitioner and echocardiographer, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board James Illman (Chair) Register

    The UK may have now past the worse of the pandemic, but the burden of Long Covid is only going to intensify in the weeks and months ahead. Estimates suggest that well over a million people are suffering from the condition, nearly half of whom have struggled with persistent symptoms for at least a year. Many will have developed Long Covid after the recent Omicron wave, which fuelled millions of weekly infections over the Christmas period. Yet support and treatment for these individuals has been in short supply. The NHS’ dedicated long Covid clinics have struggled to cope with high demand from patients, who feel neglected and ignored by the health system. Some ‘long haulers,’ as they’re known, have come together to form support groups and have regularly petitioned the government for more help and recognition of their plight. Despite the many challenges that lie ahead, there is some hope on the horizon: scientists are starting to make progress in better understanding long Covid and closing in on some of the biggest questions surrounding the condition. To discuss all of these themes, join out expert panel hosted by The Independent's Health Correspondent Rebecca Thomas and Science Correspondent Samuel Lovett, with Dr Elaine Maxwell, Professor Amitava Banerjee and Professor Brendan Delaney.

    Just over a week ago NHS England and NHS Improvement announced the launch of a network of 40 Long COVID clinics over the coming weeks. While there still needs to be more details providing, particularly a clear timeframe for the roll-out of these and information on their locations, I was wondering if anyone has heard about whether there are similar plans for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? From a little online research at the moment I've only found the following: Northern Ireland No formal announcements from the Department of Health along these lines. The charity Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke have set up their own Covid Recovery Service. Scotland No immediately obvious proposals from this recent BBC News article covering the issue. Wales Quotes from a BBC News article from the Welsh Government that 'it expected health boards to develop and improve access to rehabilitation services'. This also mentions that the 'Cardiff and Vale Health Board is the first in Wales planning to open a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation service.' Have you heard or seen anything to suggest plans are in place in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales to move forward with a similar plan to the NHS in England? Or perhaps an alternative approach?

    Why do we need GP referrals to this service for assessment? Early patients untested cannot get access to GPs, not being believed, dismissed, told they are delusional. se have been sat for months unable to get referrals ...today someone got a referral and the NHS denied them that too. So we are getting no support. We are having a host of around 200 effects (Ive documented them), most of us are weeks 12 to 33 and having lung cognitive and heart problems. We needs mri and ct scans now and we cant be joining the back of already lengthy outpatient appointments. theresa huge backlog. When is someone going to help us? #longtailgoing viral @postcovidsynd Post Covid 19 Syndrome Support Group International (facebook). Sir Simon Stevens from NHS England doesn't have time to answer our letter, he said the Seacole Centre has been set up...but it only takes tested positive patietns and the phone numbers don't work. He told us to watch himself on the Andrew Marr show..which was about this app. As you can see we still cant get referrals here either as we need GP referrals adn we cant get them/..did no one raise this? I think they did...as I did with Senior Government Advisors. Nothing has been offered to untested patients. The medical community are very much aware that we were sent home so to deny we are sick and label it as anxiety is a scandal. Likewise, graded therapy (I note exercise is on here) is not recommended as we have heart problems and some of us have done it and had heart attacks...dangerous information to share with people suffering 200 symptoms thatt the medical community have not followed us on .... health-problems (1).pdf

    What do these findings mean? Acute COVID-19 is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disorders, but risk generally returns to background levels soon after the infection. The risk of new DM remains increased for at least 12 weeks following COVID-19 before declining. Patients recovering from COVID-19 should be advised to consider measures to reduce diabetes risk including healthy diet and taking exercise. People without preexisting CVD or DM who suffer from COVID-19 do not appear to have a long-term increase in incidence of these conditions.

    Recommendations Working with health bodies to set appropriately ambitious delivery targets. Producing a clear funding strategy including long term capital investment. Developing a workforce plan to build and maintain planned care capacity. Implementing system leadership arrangements to drive through the plan. Ensuring its arrangements focus on managing clinical risks associated with long waits, supporting patients while they wait, and delivering care efficiently and effectively. Alongside this report which can be accessed from the link below, you can also view a data tool which sets out the different waiting times by health board.

    Key findings GPs are unsure of the symptoms of Long Covid – people often felt that their GP did not understand Long Covid. Healthwatch also heard that many felt their GPs dismissed their symptoms and their experiences were not listened to, making it difficult to access help and support. GPs are unaware of what support is on offer or how to access it – even if GPs acknowledged symptoms, they were not always clear what support for Long Covid was available. Some people told felt like their GP simply didn’t know what to do with them. Some GPs were unaware of the existence of Long Covid clinics. Often GPs did not know how to refer people to a Long Covid clinic. People have mixed experiences of Long Covid support – many people are waiting months for appointments at Long Covid clinics. People’s opinions are mixed, with some people finding the clinics not very helpful and others who said they helped them cope with their symptoms. Long Covid can affect every aspect of life, but patients are not being offered holistic support - when people could access support, it mainly focused on physical symptoms, despite Long Covid also affecting people’s mental health and cognitive abilities. Recommendations for updating the Long Covid Plan to improve services for people Ensure that GPs understand the variable symptoms of Long Covid and take all concerns seriously. Ensure that GPs understand the available support and how to refer people to it. Ensure that support is truly holistic and people with non-traditional symptoms are offered appropriate care. Consider how to ensure people with Long Covid have help with daily living tasks. Consider how to ensure people with other chronic conditions are not overlooked and that services have adequate resources to cope with people with Long Covid and other conditions. Consider how to ensure holistic support is co-ordinated across services, including data sharing and referrals across services. Understand more about the experiences of women, especially older women, when trying to get help from their GP.
