    Recommendations Early mobilisation Collaborative multidisciplinary working is needed to ensure that pain, hypotension and delirium do not hold back early progress in physiotherapy. Patients should be helped to get up by the day after surgery – such ‘mobilisation’ is key to patients’ wellbeing and avoidance of complications such as delirium, deconditioning and pressure damage. This mobilisation is just one element of the physiotherapy provided to patients, but it is the key measure that the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) will use to drive forward local quality improvemen

    Up to 600 patients are to be recalled by a hospital after concerns were raised about shoulder operations. Some patients have lost the use of their arm after surgery by Mian Munawar Shah at Walsall Manor Hospital. Angela Glover had two operations by Mr Shah - the first, it later emerged after a review, was unnecessary and a screw had been placed inappropriately. Her partner Simon Roberts said she was in "constant pain" and was unable to raise her arm or grip things in her right hand. It has affected her mental health to the point she had to be sectioned after a suicide attempt, Mr Rob

    Several patients awaiting treatment on the Welsh NHS have turned to surgery abroad as waiting lists hit record levels again. Waiting lists hit a record of almost 750,000 in July prompting surgeons to demand "urgent action". The Welsh government said waits of more than two years were improving. Health Minister Eluned Morgan said there were "signs of hope" that a target for no-one to wait more than a year for their first outpatient appointment could be hit by the end of 2022. But the Conservatives accused Labour ministers of having "little strategy" to tackle "extraordinary w

    Over 50 new surgical hubs will open across the country to help bust the Covid-19 backlogs and offer hundreds of thousands more patients quicker access to vital procedures, Steve Barclay, has announced. These hubs will provide at least 100 more operating theatres and over 1,000 beds so people get the surgery they need. And they will deliver almost two million extra routine operations to reduce waiting lists over the next three years, backed by £1.5billion in government funding. They will focus mainly on providing high-volume, low-complexity surgery, as previously recommended by t

    There are big differences in how well patients with hip fractures are cared for by hospitals in England and Wales, a Bristol University study says. In some hospitals one in 10 people died within a month of surgery - more than three times worse than in the best. Getting patients into theatre quickly and out of bed the next day for physio are key ways to improve care. People should receive the same, high-quality care wherever they live, the researchers said. "If you get it right for older people with hip fractures, you're probably getting it right for older people in general," say

    More than ten million patients are on “hidden” waiting lists for NHS care. There are 6.7 million patients on the official NHS waiting list, which includes people who have been referred by GPs for hospital treatment such as cataract or hip and knee surgery. However, data released by health service trusts under freedom of information laws suggests there are 10.3 million further patients who need follow-up care, illustrating the scale of the task facing the NHS. Louise Ansari, national director at the patient group Healthwatch England, said: “Waiting a long time for treatment can put

    The number of knee replacement operations carried out has dropped in regions of England with restrictions on surgery for overweight patients, with people in more deprived areas worst affected, researchers have found. Patients needing surgery but unable to lose weight are being denied surgery that could ease pain and increase mobility, the team from the University of Bristol said. Health campaigners expressed alarm, claiming the policy was a “blunt tool” being used to replace conversations between doctors and patients and risked exacerbating health inequalities. Over the past dec

    Labour is demanding new investment for the NHS as part of the government’s spending review next week, after analysis shows hundreds of thousands of patients are waiting for life-changing operations. The party’s shadow health secretary, Jonathan Ashworth, will challenge Matt Hancock in Parliament on today over the latest NHS data, which reveal almost 500,000 patients are waiting for surgery on their hips, knees and other bones. Last week, NHS England published new data showing more than 1.7 million people were waiting longer than the NHS target of 18-weeks for treatment. The target wa

    Long waiting times at Devon’s acute hospitals have forced commissioners to offer patients treatment 200 miles away in London in a bid to reduce the elective backlog. Devon Clinical Commissioning Group has secured extra capacity for patients requiring complex orthopaedic surgery under a new deal with the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre, located at Epsom General Hospital. The NHS-run orthopaedic centre is around 170 miles from Exeter in east Devon and 210 miles from Plymouth in west Devon. Many patients have declined to go, despite the CCG offering to cover their travel c

    North west London’s acute trusts are exploring whether to set up a new elective orthopaedic centre in the region as they seek to capitalise on the concept of “fast-track” surgical hubs. Last week, a report to Imperial College Healthcare Trust’s board said a more “strategic, larger-scale” approach was being sought to improve capacity for more high-volume, low-complexity work across the sector. This covers the four acute trusts in the area, which now share a single chair, and have a total turnover of more than £3bn: Imperial, Chelsea and Westminster, London North West, and Hillingdon.

    "Seeing how much pain she's in is killing me," the mother of a woman waiting four years for a hip operation has said. It is only by screaming that Marie Morgan, from Carmarthenshire, can express her level of suffering. The 30-year-old, who has multiple brain conditions, can speak only a few words and needs round-the-clock care. "Her hip is out and is rubbing against bone... there's no socket there," Marie's mother Sandra said. "She can't travel because every time I move her she's screaming in pain. Marie has cerebral palsy, severe epilepsy and fluid on the brain and the co

    In the largest independent randomized controlled trial (RCT) of its type, a multimodal digital therapy program for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain has outperformed standard-of-care treatment across all medical outcomes. Results of the study, published in the Journal of Pain Research, show that patients using Kaia, the back pain management app developed by leading digital therapeutics company Kaia Health, reduced pain levels, anxiety, depression, stress, and improved wellbeing and body functionality significantly more compared to standard-of-care treatments, e.g. pain kill

    Regulators have sent an improvement director into a North West acute trust amid multiple allegations of poor care and ‘cover up’ across different specialties. University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust, which spent 18 months in special measures midway through the last decade, is again now the subject of significant regulatory intervention from NHS England. The regulator has appointed Simon Bennett as a board-level improvement director, which comes after he undertook a similar assignment at the struggling Stockport FT. It comes amid ongoing external investigations int

    In this report, the Coroner states their concerns as follows: No formal risk assessment tool was adopted to assess preoperative risk prior to Mrs Shivalkar's total hip replacement revision surgery. Despite policy changes at Barts Heath NHS Trust since 2018, there remains no requirement to utilise such a tool. Poor communication between the orthopaedic surgical team and the anaesthetist during surgery led to a collective failure to identify a critically ill patient. General and non-specific questions regarding the patient's welfare passed between the two teams but no targeted que
