    The workshops brought together a group of patients, whose recommendations for specialist advice and guidance are: Establish a three-way dialogue between the patient, GP, and the specialist to ensure patient partnership and shared decision making. Streamline the referral process for GPs to get the advice. Include pharmacists into the advice and guidance process. The group also suggested ways to better engage patients in the service: Consider the individual’s care and communication needs. Allow patients to add information to the e-referral system and incre

    The number of patients unable to get a hospital appointment after being referred by their GP is up more than 50% in two years amid the record NHS backlog, official data show. NHS Digital figures show no appointments were immediately available for 2.3 million referrals made in the first six months of this year – up 51% on the same period in 2020. Appointment slot issues occur when a patient is referred by their GP through the NHS e-Referral Service but no appointment is available to book. The referral is then forwarded or deferred to a patient’s chosen provider, but if an appoin

    A call to NHS 111 was abandoned every 10 seconds between 2020 and 2021, figures show. Millions of callers to the helpline hung up at a time when demand for the NHS was at its highest. In 2020, 2,490,663 calls were abandoned, while in 2021 this figure increased to 3,531,186. And 1,174,159 gave up on the line from January to May this year. Callers in Devon take an average of 11 minutes to get through to the NHS 111 service, according to Liberal Democrat research. Daisy Cooper, Lib Dem spokeswoman for health and social care, said: "Ambulance services are being stretched to breaking poin

    Monkeypox is continuing to spread in the UK, with current efforts insufficient to curb the outbreak, experts have warned as a whistleblower claimed there were serious flaws in the support given to those who think they have been exposed. According to the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), there have been 1,552 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the UK related to the outbreak as of 7 July. “[There is] no evidence that current strategies are likely to bring this to an end anytime soon,” said Paul Hunter, a professor in medicine at the University of East Anglia, although he noted that while

    Unsafe medication practices and medication errors are a leading cause of injury and avoidable harm in health care systems across the world. WHO Patient Safety Flagship has initiated a series of monthly webinars on the topic of “WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge: Medication Without Harm”,. The main objective of the webinar series is support implementation of this WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge: Medication Without Harm at the country level. Considering the huge burden of medication-related harm, Medication Safety has also been selected as the theme for World Patient Safety Day 2022.

    The aftercare of COVID-19 patients will have significant financial implications for ‘understaffed’ community services, NHS England has been warned. This month the national commissioner released guidance for the care of patients once they have recovered from an immediate covid infection and been discharged from hospital. It said community health services will need to provide “ongoing health support that rehabilitates [covid patients] both physically and mentally”. The document said this would result in increased demand for home oxygen services, pulmonary rehabilitation, diagnostics an

    Over the last twenty years in particular, the NHS has been focusing on how to create better care pathways that improve patient outcomes. Improving care pathways has a positive impact on clinical outcomes, cost reduction, patient satisfaction, teamwork and process outcomes, but COVID-19 has created a significant disconnect in these pathways meaning patients are either not entering them or not flowing through them as smoothly as they need to. The administrative elements of managing patients through pathways are significant and, at a time when the NHS is experiencing workforce shortages, rou

    The government has been warned that changes to covid-related infection prevention and control guidance will not enable a ‘rapid’ increase in the NHS’ capacity to tackle the elective care backlog and could pose significant ‘risks’. Trust leaders have been told they no longer have to segregate patients into separate pathways according to “high”, “medium”, or “low” risk of covid-19 in updated IPC guidance issued by the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and UK Health Security Agency. Following this guidance means the treatment of every patient without symptoms of a respir

    Recently Dr Peter Brennan tweeted a video of a plane landing at Heathrow airport during Storm Dennis. I looked at this with emotion, and with hundreds of in-flight safety information, human factors, communication and interpersonal skills running through my head. I thought of the pilot and his crew, the cabin crew attendants and the passengers, and how scared and worried they would have felt. On a flight, the attendants will take us through the safety procedures before take off. We are all guilty, I am sure, of partly listening because it is routine and we have heard it all before. Then s

    From the perspective of a service user, interactions with health and social care are often exceedingly difficult to navigate. The NHS’s traditional to approach to managing patient pathways has involved letters, appointments at set times, and stress for an individual needing to communicate that a planned consultation is no longer needed – or is needed more urgently. Knowing which service to access, and how to do so swiftly, can be particularly challenging. All this is inefficient and can lead to poor patient experience. As the service seeks to manage the backlog of care, and to meet the co

    Patients will receive better, more joined-up care under new plans announced to improve the links between health and social care. The integration white paper sets out a vision for an integrated NHS and adult social care sector which will better serve patients and staff. Despite the best efforts of staff, the current system means that too often patients find themselves having to navigate complex and disjointed systems. Those with multiple conditions can be left feeling frustrated at having to repeatedly explain their needs to multiple people in different organisations, while others can

    We have a new app within Homerton which is featured on the hub. The Homerton University Hospital (HUH) Action Card App is an initiative that aims to bridge the gap between information/processes with clinical members of staff without the need to log into a computer, access the intranet, and finding the long black and white document which is never ending. The Action Card App has easy to read, 1-page coloured documents relating to local and national/local incident trends and Never Events.

    Mandy Odell, Nurse Consultant, Critical Care, Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Reading, has implemented this initiative in her hospital and beyond. Five years following the introduction of a whole-hospital, 24-hour critical care outreach (CCO) service, an additional service was introduced that enabled patients and their families to directly call the CCO team if they had concerns that were not being acknowledged by the patient’s clinical team. The aim of this review, published in the Journal of Nursing, was to report on 7 years of patient and family referrals using quantitative and fr

    The investigation identified the following learning points that could potentially offer benefits at a national level: The correct identification of patients relies on staff checking patient details and therefore will not always occur effectively. There may be opportunities for further engineered or technological barriers to help mitigate the risk of incorrect identification. The investigation recognises that a single hospital trust may receive patients from multiple ambulance trusts, and ambulances from a single ambulance trust may attend several hospital trusts.

    Despite the best efforts of staff, the current system means that too often patients find themselves having to navigate complex and disjointed systems. Those with multiple conditions can be left feeling frustrated at having to repeatedly explain their needs to multiple people in different organisations, while others can end up facing delayed discharge because the NHS and local authorities are working to different priorities in a way that is not as joined up as it could be.better transparency and choice – if local authorities and the NHS share data and are more transparent about their performanc

    Our recent observational study, published in the Health Informatics Journal, focussed on staff safety in the mental healthcare setting. We worked with a mental healthcare provider to extract and analyse incidents of adverse events. In one aspect of the work, we looked specifically at the incidents that were reported that had recorded a member of staff as a ‘victim’ of the adverse event. From the 1 September 2014 to the 31 March 2017, 19,693 members of staff were reported as victims across 10,119 adverse events. For context, this was the equivalent of around 25 incidents per week, but it i

    It happened on a Saturday, 19.30pm, in April 2012. I was the theatre coordinator. We had a 'never event' of a retained swab in a breast wound. The following week, I changed practice following audits for four weeks in eight theatres. We never looked back. Attached is the poster presented in November 2016 at the Patient First Excel conference. Until recently no one ever asked me how I felt. I knew what to do. But I felt for the surgeon. As theatre scrub practitioners we complete counts and inform the surgeon. He acknowledges the count. If later on a swab is retained, it's the surgeon w
