    Patient safety campaigners have said ‘too many women’ are still not being offered a general anaesthetic for a diagnostic test because of staff shortages, leaving them in severe pain. A survey by the Campaign Against Painful Hysteroscopies found around 240 women – which equates to 80 per cent of respondents – who had a hysteroscopy since the start of 2021 said they were not told they could have a general anaesthetic prior to the procedure. This suggests the situation has only improved marginally since 2019, when the campaign group first started collecting data. A spokeswoman from the

    Women undergoing NHS operations are not being routinely informed that a drug commonly used in anaesthesia may make their contraception less effective, putting them at risk of an unplanned pregnancy, doctors have warned. Administered at the end of surgery before patients wake up, sugammadex reverses the action of drugs that are given earlier in the procedure to relax the patient’s muscles. The drug is known to interact with the hormone progesterone and may reduce the effectiveness of hormonal contraceptives, including the progesterone-only pill, combined pill, vaginal rings, implants and i

    The perioperative environment is complex and rapidly changing with a diverse, multi-professional workforce. A global shortage of perioperative practitioners has forced us to ‘bridge the gap’ by working collaboratively across many boundaries and specialities to deliver safe, high-quality patient care. This study day from the Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP) explores how embracing a multi-professional approach to perioperative care can help us to build theatre teams that are fit for the future. From Anaesthetists to Registered Operating Department Practitioners (RODPs) and Regi

    Recommendations Informed consent for anaesthesia for caesarean section requires an explanation of neuraxial techniques and general anaesthesia. For neuraxial techniques, discuss the planned level of block and how it will be tested, the sensations that should be expected with an effective block, the possibility of pain and the potential ways of treating it, including general anaesthesia. For non-elective caesarean section, the discussion should include any potential fetal risks arising from the time taken to deliver the possible modes of anaesthesia. Use a recognised te

    Barts Health NHS Trust has been told to take action to prevent future deaths after an elderly woman was unlawfully killed at one of its hospitals. East London acting senior coroner Graeme Irvine sent a report to the trust in which he raised concerns over the death of 78-year-old Surekha Shivalkar in 2018. The report follows an inquest into Mrs Shivalkar's death, which reached a narrative conclusion incorporating a finding of unlawful killing. A Barts spokesperson said the trust had made a number of changes after carrying out an investigation. Mrs Shivalkar underwent hip rep

    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

    The surgeon at the centre of a body parts scandal operated on patients who were dangerously sedated so that their procedures could be carried out simultaneously, according to a leaked investigation seen by The Independent. Renowned hip surgeon Derek McMinn and two anaesthetists at Edgbaston Hospital, Birmingham, were accused of putting “income before patient safety” in the internal investigation for BMI Healthcare, which runs the hospital. It comes after a separate review found that McMinn had hoarded more than 5,000 bone samples from his patients without a licence or proper permissi
