    This King's Fund event brings together health and care professionals, community organisations and others to explore the role of communities in health and wellbeing. While the Covid-19 pandemic created significant pressure for existing health and care services, it also provided a springboard for organisations to work more closely with communities to deliver innovative new programmes and projects that had an impact on health and wellbeing outcomes.    Topics: How can communities best connect with health and care services – and vice versa – to have an impact on outcomes?  How

    Senior medics have reacted in horror to NHS England’s decision to ‘dramatically’ cut the funding of a key long-term plan commitment designed to improve older people’s community services and deliver more care at home. British Geriatrics Society president Jennifer Burns told HSJ the professional body was “horrified” that the budget for the Ageing Well programme for 2022-23 would be £70m instead of the £204m originally promised in the long-term plan for the NHS. “We are dismayed that the promised funding for the Ageing Well programme as set out in the NHS long-term plan is being so dram

    A trust has admitted it is having to discharge patients inappropriately into care homes or community hospital beds because of a shortage of home care workers. A report to East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust’s board last week revealed that 160 extra beds had been commissioned to maintain flow across the local health economy “due to insufficient domiciliary/care package capacity.” It went on: “The clinical commissioning group have tried via Kent County Council to commission additional domiciliary care without success. It is acknowledged by the local health economy that it i

    Vulnerable people released from immigration detention in the UK are too often left without crucial continuity of care, leading to quickly deteriorating health, concludes a report. The report comes from Medical Justice, a charity that sends independent volunteer clinicians into immigration removal centres across the UK to offer medical advice and assessments to immigration detainees. The charity said that between 1 October 2020 and 30 September 2021 a total of 21 362 people were detained in UK immigration centres and 17 283 were released into the community, having been granted bail or

    A woman has been left to sleep in her wheelchair several nights a week and remain in bed for the rest of it due to a lack of social care in her local area. Mandy Page, 53, who lives alone in Hove, has difficulty getting into and out of bed on her own and previously had carers to provide support in the morning and evenings. However, since before Christmas she has had no care support in the evenings after the MyLife East Sussex agency told her it was no longer covering her care, and that the agency believed her care was now being provided by her local authority.

    A Covid report by the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman has highlighted some ‘tragic individual cases’ over the past months. The report analyses cases over the first 18 months of the pandemic which for the majority reveal that councils and care providers weathered the unprecedented pressures they were under fire. However, the report also reveals the ‘serious impact on people’s lives’ when things go wrong. Cases include a woman who died from COVID-19 at a care home with poor infection control procedures which was then compounded by staff trying to cover up the facts.

    The Ombudsman investigates complaints about local councils and care providers in England, getting involved when things have gone badly wrong. This report, which analyses its cases over the first 18 months of the pandemic, shows that, by and large, councils and care providers weathered the unprecedented pressures they were under. But, when things did go wrong it had a serious impact on people’s lives. Cases highlighted in the report include a woman who died from COVID-19 at a care home with poor infection control procedures which was then compounded by staff later trying to cover up the fa

    In summer 2020, Baroness Cavendish carried out a review of adult social care. Her review looked at the question: ‘how can we lock in the lessons of the COVID-19 crisis to build a more robust, sustainable, joined-up system of health and social care?’. The aim of the report was to review and make recommendations for social care reform and integration with health in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, to inform the government’s plans for reform. The report proposes a wide range of recommendations for adult social care system reform. The government have since taken forward a number of the

    Key themes of the Standards Caseloads, capacity and time An effective District Nursing service should serve the need for nursing care in a defined community. District Nurses understand the needs of their local community but there must also be clear referral criteria for other services. A growing and ageing population, deprivation, communication issues, social isolation, acuity, multimorbidity, ‘rookie’ factor (number of inexperienced staff), travel time, frailty, cognitive issues, lack of other services and lack of home support systems all affect the demand for healthcare delive

    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

    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

    NHS England has told local systems to defer ‘low priority’ cases across 11 community services, because of the pressures created by the omicron wave. NHSE has issued guidance for the prioritisation of the community health workforce “given the increasing pressures on the health system due to the omicron wave of COVID-19 this winter and the need to provide booster jabs as quickly as possible”. It is hoped the guidance will encourage the redeployment of community staff to help reduce the strain on acute services. Staff working in musculoskeletal services are being asked to depriori

    A Royal College of Nursing (RCN) surveillance project estimates that there are 100,000 sharps injuries each year in the UK,[1] making sharps or needlestick injuries one of the most common safety incidents in healthcare. If a contaminated needle or other medical instrument penetrates the skin of another person, there is a serious risk that it will transmit bloodborne viruses and infections, including HIV and hepatitis. The European Biosafety Network reports that the situation has been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic, resulting in an average 23% increase in incidents across five European cou

    Patients are dying in hospital without their families because of pressure on NHS services, hospices have told The Independent. A major care provider has warned that it has seen a “huge shift” in the number of patients referred too late to its services. The warning comes as NHS England begins a new £32m contract with hospices to help hospitals discharge as many patients as possible this winter. NHS chief executive Amanda Pritchard said the health service was preparing for an Omicron-driven Covid wave that could be as disruptive as, or even worse than, last winter’s crisis. H

    In her report, the Coroner states her main concerns as follows: Ms Bruce was cared for in the community by several different District Nurses. This meant that it was not the same nurse who was always seeing the wound. No photographs were taken for reference and the electronic records could not be accessed by the District Nurses while they were in Ms Bruce’s home. This meant that all information that could have been available was not, meaning Ms Bruce’s change in condition was not fully appreciated. Leicestershire Partnership Trust has learned from this and District Nurses now have
