    This innovative educational initiative from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh was developed as a direct and constructive response to the communication inadequacies exposed by the Montgomery case, and subsequent legislation. While it is not difficult to give ‘more information’ it is harder for surgeons and patients to achieve a decision partnership. The ICONS workshop content has been informed by internationally recognised experts in Shared Decision Making, by consensus among senior practising surgeons, by patients and by professional experts in risk management and risk communicat

    Hysteroscopy is a procedure used as a diagnostic tool to identify the cause of common problems such as abnormal bleeding, unexplained pain, or unusually heavy periods in women. It involves a long, thin tube being passed into the womb, often with little or no anaesthesia. Concerns about painful hysteroscopy Patients, patient groups and politicians have raised serious safety concerns about outpatient hysteroscopy procedures for several years, highlighting cases of avoidable harm. Some women have described how the lack of forewarning, coupled with the trauma of the experience itself, lef

    Healthwatch is hosting this event to launch the Your Care, Your Way campaign, which calls for improved accountability and implementation of the Accessible Information Standard (AIS). Healthwatch England has joined forces with a coalition of user-led national organisations to highlight how the NHS and social care fail to support people's accessible communication needs. By law, all publicly funded health and social care providers must fully comply with the AIS and ensure people are given information about their health and care in accessible formats.

    This article looks at the response of different groups to the 2015 ruling, the legal implications for doctors including retrospective cases and clinical concerns and ethical arguments. The authors conclude that the Montgomery ruling has not radically changed the process of consent; it has simply given appropriate recognition to patients as decision makers.

    A public conversation has finally started about pain relief for IUD fittings. Several women in the public eye, such as Naga Munchetty and Caitlin Moran, have come forward with appalling stories about their experiences in the stirrups. Like with recent public reckonings about violence against women in public spaces and in various industries, it’s a shame these conversations were only started when women aired their bloodstained laundry out in public, in the hopes that someone, somewhere, might give a damn. Anyone who does care now has plenty of accounts to sift through, as more and more people s

    In this report, the Coroner states her concerns as follows: There is no robust patient pathway to ensure that all patient factors relevant to the clinical indication for, and safety of, ERCP are identified in advance of the procedure and discussed with the patient. The lack of robust system for the recording of the vetting of the procedure, capturing information that has been considered as part of this process. Consent is not personalised, contrary to recommendations made by the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy in December 2019. A lack of accountability

    A group of survivors and relatives of people who died in the infected blood scandal are suing a school where they contracted hepatitis and HIV after being given experimental treatment without informed consent. A proposed group action lodged by Collins Solicitors in the high court on Friday alleges that Treloar College, a boarding school in Hampshire that specialised in teaching haemophiliacs, failed in its duty of care to these pupils in the 1970s and 80s. The claim could result in a payout running into millions of pounds, and is based on new testimony given by former staff at the sc

    Occupational health professionals should avoid employment and management matters related to unvaccinated NHS staff, new guidance has warned. The Faculty of Occupational Medicine guidance comes as trusts are considering their options of how to approach patient-facing staff who remain unvaccinated, including their potential redeployment or dismissal. However, HSJ understands some occupational health practitioners are concerned they may become entangled in difficult ethical issues, such as the vaccination status of individual employees, or disciplinary processes. Today’s FOM guidan

    Too often health and social care is designed and delivered around the traditional idea that the patient is the passive participant in the care process. A recurring theme that emerges time and again from serious patient safety failings is that concerns raised by patients and family members are not acted on and, when harm occurs, they are left out of the investigation process. Discussing the shocking degree of avoidable harm to patients as a result of side effects of hormone pregnancy tests, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh implants, the findings of last year’s important patient safety repo

    In her report, the Coroner states his main concerns as follows: Informed consent and maternal choice regarding mode of delivery That this appears to be a recurring theme in obstetric practice. The culture in this area appears to still not fully accept the principles of informed consent set down in case law of the appeal courts (Montgomery) and in NICE guidance (Caesarean Section). It also does not seem to prioritise the wishes of pregnant women or holding full and frank discussions about the risks and benefits and pros and cons of different options. He noted that he had conc
