    Obese adults in Britain are on course to outnumber those who are a healthy weight within five years, a stark report has revealed. Experts have warned there will be a “tipping point” in 2027 when one third of adults will be obese if current trends continue. By 2040, they predict there will 21 million people classed as obese in the UK, and 19 million deemed to be overweight. The analysis by Cancer Research UK shows seven in 10 (71%) people will be overweight or obese by 2040. Of this, almost four in 10 (36%) adults will be obese. At present, 64% of adults are overweight or ob

    A woman who had her ovaries removed by mistake was one victim of the hundreds of “never events” that occurred in the NHS over the past year. Between April 2021 and March 2022 more than 400 patients in England’s hospitals suffered errors so serious that they should never have happened according to data released by NHS England. They include the wrong hips, legs, eyes and knees being operated on, and diabetic patients being given too much insulin. Foreign objects were left inside 98 patients after operations, including gauzes, swabs, drill guides, scalpel blades and needles. Vaginal swa

    New figures leaked to HSJ show the true volume of 12-hour waiters in emergency departments is more than four times higher than official statistics suggest. Internal NHS England figures for February and March show around one in five admissions through ED waited more than 12 hours from arriving until being admitted to a ward – equating to around 158,000 cases. The official stats published by NHSE record a slightly different, and shorter, time period, from ‘decision to admit’ to admission. There were around 39,000 of these cases in the same two months, which equates to 4 per cent of adm

    Findings Twenty-five per cent of Medicare patients experienced patient harm during their hospital stays in October 2018. Patient harm includes adverse events and temporary harm events. Twelve per cent of patients experienced adverse events, which are events that led to longer hospital stays, permanent harm, life-saving intervention, or death. In addition to the patients who experienced adverse events, 13% of patients experienced temporary harm events, which required intervention but did not cause lasting harm, prolong hospital stays, or require life-sustaining measures. Temporary harm

    Hundreds of organisations, including drug companies, private healthcare providers and universities, have breached patient data sharing agreements but not had their access to patient data withdrawn, a report reveals. “High risk” breaches were revealed to have occurred at healthcare groups, pharmaceutical giants and educational institutions including Virgin Care, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Imperial College London, during audits by NHS Digital, according to an investigation by the BMJ. This means these organisations were handling information outside the remit agreed in data contracts and

    Key findings show: One in ten women who worked during the menopause have left a job due to their symptoms. Eight out of ten women say their employer hasn’t shared information, trained staff, or put in place a menopause absence policy. Almost half of women haven’t approached their GPs and three in ten have seen delays in diagnosis. Only four in ten women were offered HRT in a timely fashion. The report calls for: Employers to have menopause action plans Make flexible work the default Implement a public information campaign and invite every wo

    Trusts have been told to ‘get their act together’ on health inequalities, after HSJ research suggested only a small minority have so far published data on disparities in waiting times between different patient groups. Planning guidance issued by NHS England in September 2021 said trusts’ board performance reports should include a disaggregation of waiting lists by ethnicity and deprivation group. Through freedom of information and media requests, HSJ attempted to obtain such data from the 20 trusts with the largest waiting lists, but only three currently appear to have met the requir

    The number of notified “extreme” and “major” incidents involving serious harm to patients and others in hospital has risen significantly in the Republic of Ireland in recent years, new figures reveal. Reported “extreme” incidents, which can involve death or permanent incapacity, rose from 373 in 2017 to 579 last year. The number of cases classified as “major”, where there is long-term disability or incapacity, climbed from 46 to 82 in the same period. “Moderate” incidents, when there is a patient injury involving medical treatment, also increased from 9,219 in 2017 to 13,563 las

    A dramatic drop in testing for Covid-19 has left the world blind to the virus’s continuing rampage and its potentially dangerous mutations, the head of the World Health Organization has warned. The UN health agency said that reported Covid cases and deaths had been dropping dramatically. “Last week, just over 15,000 deaths were reported to WHO – the lowest weekly total since March 2020,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters. While saying this was “a very welcome trend”, he warned that the declining numbers could also be a result of significant cuts in testing for the v

    A trust has discovered 1,800 patients who were removed by mistake from its elective waiting list. Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust chief executive Matthew Trainer wrote to colleagues in the east London health system today to “apologise for the stress this will have caused those experiencing a delay”. Of the 1,800 patients involved, 600 have been waiting more than a year and roughly 200 have been waiting for more than two years. Mr Trainer’s note explained: “The patients have been waiting to see our specialists in routine clinics in gynaecology, neurolog

    Patients who have “lost hope” of ever seeing a doctor are falling off NHS waiting lists due to poor record-keeping by the SNP government, Scotland’s public spending watchdog has revealed. Stephen Boyle, the auditor-general, said there was no record of patients who drop off the waiting list to go private or who simply give up. Humza Yousaf, the health secretary, said he was aware of “a small number of people” who had gone abroad for transplants, including one of his own constituents. He admitted there was no way of knowing the scale of the issue, or whether the organs were obtain

    The report makes the following recommendations: Use people with technical skills to manage complex technical problems. Build impatiently, but incrementally, accepting that new ways of working are overdue, but cannot replace old methods overnight: we must build skills, and prove the value of modern approaches to data in parallel to maintaining old services and teams. Identify a range of ‘data pioneer’ groups from each key sector. Build Trusted Research Environment (TRE) capacity by taking a hands-on approach to the components of work common to all TREs. Focus on

    An algorithm which can predict how long a patient might spend in hospital if they’re diagnosed with bowel cancer could save the NHS millions of pounds and help patients feel better prepared. Experts from the University of Portsmouth and the Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust have used artificial intelligence and data analytics to predict the length of hospital stay for bowel cancer patients, whether they will be readmitted after surgery, and their likelihood of death over a one or three-month period. The intelligent model will allow healthcare providers to design the best pat
