    My daughter, who has bipolar disorder, received her diagnosis at the very end of a 90-minute psychiatrist consultation. After spending the entire session observing her as if she were a rare specimen, the psychiatrist pronounced her ‘bipolar’, as casually as if he were giving her a driving test result. He then quickly added: “But more interestingly is the fact that your entire body twitches and jerks constantly; I think you may have Tourette’s or some other underlying neurological issue.” He told us he would not treat the symptoms of the bipolar disorder (we had arrived at

    Just 10% of money allocated to help treat young people with eating disorders reached the NHS frontline, a new analysis has revealed. The latest data on NHS mental health spending comes amid concern the pandemic has exacerbated eating disorders in young people, sparking a rise in demand. A report commissioned by MPs compiled by the eating disorder charity Beat, using NHS data, shows local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), who purchase NHS services on behalf of NHS England, spent just £1.1m of the £11m they were given for community eating disorder services in 2019-20. The mone

    Children with asthma are at risk of avoidable deaths in England because of poor NHS systems and a failure to appreciate the dangers posed by the condition. A new investigation by NHS safety watchdog the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) has revealed a series of risks to children with asthma, as concerns emerge of the impact of the pandemic on asthma patients more generally. The latest inquiry was sparked by the deaths of three children between 2014 and 2017. All were caused by asthma attacks which were later the subject of warnings by coroners. In each case HSIB said

    Safety recommendations HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement, as a commissioning body, supports local systems to implement evidence-based interventions, such as standardised information and wheeze management plans, for the parents/ carers of pre-school children. This will be undertaken in conjunction with the British Paediatric Respiratory Society. HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement reviews the recommendations arising from the National Review of Asthma Deaths to prioritise and ensure the implementation of recommendations that are outstanding.

    On Christmas Day, Gail Jackson’s 16-year-old daughter said she was in so much pain she thought she would die. Liliana had been briefly admitted to hospital with Covid in September. Her symptoms never went away and, as time went on, new ones had emerged. “For months she had a relentless, agonising headache, nausea, tinnitus, fatigue and insomnia, but the worst thing was the agonising nerve pain,” said Jackson. “I couldn’t even touch her without her screaming in pain.” On Christmas morning, Jackson drove to hospital with her daughter vomiting from pain in the passenger seat. When they

    A cutting-edge child and adolescent mental health centre hopes to help prevent young people from experiencing mental health problems. As we look hopefully towards a June bonfire of pandemic regulations and restrictions, many recognise that soaring rates of mental health problems and distress amongst our children and young people must be near the top of a 21st century list of challenges in “building back better”. School closures, uncertainty and being cut off from friends and social and sporting events have seen more children and young people referred to CAMHS — a service that was fa

    Having a child with a food allergy can have a devastating effect on all of the family. Research by the University of East Anglia last month (March) revealed that almost half (42%) of parents of children living with food allergies have suffered trauma that meets the criteria for post-traumatic stress symptoms.[1] It’s a shocking figure, but perhaps not surprising. Between 6 and 8% of children have a food allergy, with the most common being eggs, milk and peanuts. The number of people admitted to hospital for severe food allergies has tripled over the past two decades according to research

    Extremely unwell eating disorder patients are having to be tube fed at home by their families owing to a lack of hospital beds, as the Royal College of Psychiatrists reports a rise in people being treated in units without specialist support. Leading psychiatrists are urging the government for an emergency cash investment as the pandemic has prompted a rise in demand for treatment for conditions such as anorexia, amid “desperate pressure in the system”. In interviews with the Guardian, a number of parents told of the struggles of helping a severely unwell person from home. A number of

    A child was twice given double the "safe" dose of a rapid tranquilizer at a hospital run by a troubled NHS trust. The child was put at "significant risk of harm" at Telford's Princess Royal Hospital, said inspectors. Rating children's services inadequate, they said Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) must halt seeing under 18s for acute mental health needs. The trust, in special measures, was working to "urgently address concerns". The Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out a targeted inspection on 24 February prompted by "concerning information" about treatment

    Britain is facing a “terrifying” mental health crisis with tens of thousands more children needing specialist help since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Experts from the Royal College of Psychiatrists have warned the problem facing the country will get worse before it gets better with new analysis revealing almost 400,000 children and 2.2 million adults sought help for mental health problems during the crisis. While the effect of lockdown and coronavirus has affected people of all ages, children appear to be particularly susceptible. Some 80,226 more children and young pe

    Parents were recruited to complete a 21-item survey about the needs of their child with an ASD while in the hospital. ASD diagnosis was reported by parents at the time of the survey. The results of the survey were analysed and evaluated in three distinct categories of need. The authors documented a range of responses associated with ASD-specific needs during hospitalisation. Common concerns included child safety and the importance of acknowledging individual communication methods. The study concluded that in a population of children with ASDs, parents report a diverse range of need

    This project was commissioned because of an issue with multiple medicines records being held by different agencies for local children with complex needs and at the end of life. The project was highly commended by NICE and a poster was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2015 (see poster below). This duplication of records was believed to be a major risk factor for medicines errors and a waste of clinical time. It also meant that parents needed to repeat information about their children’s medicines time and again, as they accessed services, including inpatient services, tertiary cen

    In January, England's only NHS gender clinic for children and young people was rated "inadequate" by the country's health watchdog - the lowest rating, meaning it is performing badly. The findings make for sobering reading with inspectors raising "significant concerns" about the way the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) works. Nearly 5,000 children are waiting - sometimes for up to two years - for an appointment, and the management team has been disbanded following the inspection. Now BBC News has had exclusive sight of an external report written in 2015 which recommen

    The House of Lords Public Services Select Committee is conducting an inquiry into whether reforming public services can address the growing child vulnerability crisis. Based on Solace's work with children and young people, they have submitted a response calling for better understanding and coordination from public services that intervene and support survivors of domestic abuse. Key recommendations: Training on all forms of domestic abuse as defined in the Domestic Abuse Bill should be mandatory for social work qualifications, and periodically updated through continuing profe

    Doctors ignored the concerns of a seriously ill girl's parents before reducing her pain medication, an inquest has heard. Melody Driscoll, from Croydon, died aged 11 at King's College Hospital (KCH) in July 2018. Her mother Karina Driscoll and stepfather Nigel alleged the actions of KCH reduced Melody's quality of life. She told Southwark Coroner's Court that a reduction in painkillers also contributed to her daughter's death. The family had been in dispute with KCH over the treatment given to Melody, who had several conditions including Rett syndrome, a rare and life-limiting g

    An infection "probably" linked to Glasgow's children's hospital was the "primary cause of death" of a young cancer patient, the BBC has learned. Infections from contaminated water at the hospital were also found to have been an "important contributory factor" in another child's death. A review looked into the cases of 84 children who developed infections while undergoing treatment at the hospital. It found that a third of infections "probably" originated in the hospital and the rest were "possibly" acquired there. The authors of the "case note review", which should be publi

    As the UK looks to mark the first anniversary of the first COVID-19 lockdown on 23 March, Sky News has spoken to one family who say they have lived constantly with the after effects of the virus for a year. Charlie, 37, her husband Zed, 41, and their five children – Nico, 15, Beck, 12, Indiana, 10, Emmett, 8, and Mimi, 5 – fell ill with the virus in March last year. All of them – particularly the children – have been suffering ever since. Charlie said the list of symptoms is "extensive", including headaches, eye issues, nose bleeds, body rashes, horrific tummy pains, gastric iss

    In the two weeks before his death Robbie was seen seven times by five different GPs. The child was seen by three different GPs four times in the last three days when he was so weak and dehydrated he was bedbound and unable to stand unassisted. Only one GP read the medical records, six days before death, and was aware of the suspicion of Addison's disease, the need for the ACTH test and the instruction to immediately admit the child back to hospital if he became unwell. The GP informed the Powells that he would refer Robbie back to hospital immediately that day but did not inform them that

    Doctors are being issued with new guidance for cases where children are repeatedly brought in when there is nothing wrong. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) says cases where parents know there's nothing wrong are rare. Instead genuine, if misplaced, health anxieties are more common. They advise referring to "perplexing symptoms" instead of "fabricated or induced illness". Paediatricians say there has been a rise in cases where children are repeatedly brought in, despite nothing being found to be wrong. The unexplained symptoms could be because a gen
