    With the latest UK government figures showing that there have been nearly 150,000 deaths where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, it’s understandable why some people compare the pandemic with a war. Indeed, daily life in the NHS is now peppered with military language: the frontline, gold command calls, redeployment, buddy systems and 'moral injury' Moral injury can be defined as the distress that arises in response to actions or inactions that violate our moral code, our set of individual beliefs about what is right or wrong. In the medical literature, moral injury has histo

    A witness to an inquiry into deaths at England’s largest mental health trust has been intimidated by “cruel and calculated pressure”, with messages described by the man leading the investigation as “truly shocking”. In a statement at the start of hearings into the quality of care at Southern Health Foundation Trust, inquiry chairman Nigel Pascoe QC said one witness had received threatening telephone calls, messages and emails, which he said were “totally unacceptable, damaging and deeply disturbing”. Mr Pascoe said the inquiry had been told Beth Ford, whose job title at the trust is

    Many doctors from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds say key risk assessments have still not taken place, or have not been acted on. About 40% of UK doctors in the UK are from BAME backgrounds, yet 95% of the medics who have died from coronavirus were from minority backgrounds. The NHS said last June that its trusts should offer risk assessments to staff, but hundreds told a poll for BBC News that they were still awaiting assessments or action. Of 2,000 doctors who responded, 328 said their risks hadn't been assessed at all, while 519 said they had had a risk assessmen

    The 'How are you feeling NHS? toolkit' has been developed with NHS staff to: help bridge a gap in understanding and enable us to talk openly and regularly about emotional health assess the impact emotional wellbeing has on ourselves, our colleagues and on our patients enable us to action plan to enable more good days than bad. Staff identified that emotional wellbeing can be explained in three ways. We are either: on a go-slow having a good day on the edge.

    On the 11 March 2021 the NHS published the results of its annual staff survey for 2020.[1] This is one of the largest workforce surveys in the world, with 595,000 staff responding from 280 NHS organisations who were asked to take part.[2] The survey focused its questions on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and ten core themes used in previous surveys. In this blog we will look at the responses that relate to the ‘Safety Culture’ theme, considering results around reporting and acting on patient safety concerns and how safe staff feel to speak up about patient safety issues. We will then

    Every year, the NHS surveys its staff to find out about their experiences of working for their respective organisations. This week saw the publication of the 2020 NHS Staff Survey, which had almost 600,000 respondents, representing 47% of NHS staff across 280 NHS organisations.[1] This huge response testifies to the increased pressure placed on healthcare services over the last year. While the results do suggest improvement in some areas, including health and wellbeing, it is clear more work needs to be done as we begin our transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic. We can see, for example,

    Accident and emergency staff at Bristol Royal Infirmary do not feel equipped to deal with the violence they face from the public, inspectors have found. Health watchdog The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the department as "requires improvement" following an inspection in February. It said "urgent action" must be taken to protect staff and patients. University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust said it was working on improvements. Amanda Williams, CQC's head of hospital inspections, said: "We were... particularly concerned to find high levels of violence and a

    Nurse leaders are lobbying government to update "fundamentally flawed" guidance on personal protective equipment. The Royal College of Nursing says the existing recommendations are based on out-of-date evidence. One nurse told the BBC she had not been allowed to wear a higher-grade mask, despite having to go into the homes of patients with Covid. The nurse, who wishes to remain anonymous, wanted to use what's known as an FFP3 mask that filters out infectious aerosols. But she says her employers insisted on following national guidance, that most health staff should wear thinner surgic

    A screening of 'DO NO HARM', a 60-minute documentary that discusses physician burnout and suicide followed by a 60-minute panel discussion. Doctors take an oath to save lives, yet they are taking their own at an alarming rate, trapped in a toxic healthcare system that puts their patients' lives at risk. This film and panel discussion bring awareness to the topic of this epidemic that's been covered up for decades until now. Register

    In March 2017 in Nigeria, we had two very shocking incidents which left everyone saddened and disturbed. The first case was Emmanuel Ogah, a medical doctor, who stabbed his 62-year-old mother to death in Lagos. Then, whilst we were all trying to come to terms with that incident, on the 19 March 2017 Allwell Orji, another medical doctor, asked his driver to stop in the middle of the popular ‘The Third Mainland Bridge’, got out of his car and jumped into the lagoon where he drowned before help could come. The loss of these two medical professionals happened within a space of one week. As an

    Paramedics in London have started wearing body cameras after a 34% jump in the number of violent attacks on ambulance crews. A trial of the technology is being rolled out across the capital in areas where workers are thought to be more at risk based on past incidents. Paramedics can press a button to start recording if patients or the public become aggressive or abusive towards them. London Ambulance Service told The Independent there had been an increase in physical assaults in recent years. Attacks jumped from 468 in the financial year 2018-19 to 625 in the year 2019-20, a 34%
