    Summary recommendations The National Screening Committee should reconsider the case for a targeted national screening programme to detect high fracture risk in 2023. The Government should instigate a public health campaign to address the lack of awareness and complacency in the public about bone health. Osteoporosis must be given parity with other long-term conditions, and defined as such within the NHS, to allow enhanced and equitable care and management. NHS England must outline plans to expand DXA services to deliver and exceed their recommended 4% increase in capac

    Orthopaedic patients in NHS Highland face a wait of up to seven years for surgery, new research has found. A University of Aberdeen study said the worst case estimate would apply if surgical rates did not increase for those listed in July this year. Researchers also discovered the average wait across Scotland's 14 health boards could be as long as two years and three months. The Scottish government said it was working to maximise NHS capacity. Luke Farrow, clinical research fellow, warned that the significance of the delays could not be underestimated. He said: "Prolon

    A consultant orthopaedic surgeon who carried out double the average number of knee and hip operations over a three year-period is facing a tribunal over alleged misconduct and more than 100 legal cases lodged by former patients, HSJ has been told. Jeremy Parker, who performed hundreds of operations at Colchester Hospital and the private Oaks Hospital until his suspension in 2019, is currently appearing before a misconduct hearing. The tribunal is investigating allegations that between August 2015 and November 2018, Mr Parker failed to provide good clinical care to six patients. It ha

    More than 10,000 patients have been given a faulty knee replacement which doubles the risk of joint failure, The Telegraph has disclosed. The implant, which has been in use since 2003, was withdrawn from the market by its manufacturer in October. The Telegraph has learnt that UK health regulator the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is now preparing to issue a field safety notice, prohibiting its use. Available across multiple NHS trusts, the implant, manufactured by Zimmer Biomet, a US firm, has been shown to fail in up to 7% of patients after ten years

    When 85-year-old Koulla fell at home, her family immediately rang for an ambulance. She was in agonising pain - she had broken her hip. It was around 8pm. It took another 14 hours for an ambulance to get to her, leaving her pregnant granddaughter to care for her through the night. When they arrived the crews were able to give her pain relief and quickly transported her to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. But there the wait continued - there were around 30 ambulances queuing to handover patients to A&E staff. It was another 26 hours before she was taken inside to A&E.

    Spire Healthcare, a private healthcare company, has confirmed it will recall patients amid concerns about a surgeon's operations. It comes after Walsall Healthcare Trust announced it was recalling 600 NHS patients who underwent shoulder surgery performed by Mr Shah. Spire said it was committed to promptly responding to concerns and undertaking good governance. Mr Shah is the third shoulder surgeon since 2019 operating from Spire premises to have had issues. One private patient, Martin Byrne, said he was in immediate pain after an operation to repair his rotator cuff perform

    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

    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

    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.
