    In a positive step towards the future of pathology, NHS Digital has received approval from the Data Alliance Partnership Board (DAPB) for a new set of pathology information standards, and as part of NHS England CCIO7 workstreams, NHS Digital are delivering the ability to share pathology results across health and care. This move will enable clinicians to share and access critical information about pathology tests and results and receive the right information when they need it, which will help support improved clinical decision making and patient safety.

    Results found that of the 20, 758 prescriptions reviewed, 3375 interventions were made, CPs spent 3.5 h per day on direct patient care, reviewed 10.3 patients per day and required 22.5 min per review. In addition, there was no correlation found between the presence of electronic prescribing in critical care and any intervention rate, concluding that a CP is essential for safe and optimised patient medication therapy and that services should be appropriately staffed to ensure sufficient time for prescription review and maximal therapy optimisation.

    A new tool by NHS Digital has recently been launched that will allow patients to see which organisations can access their data. The Data Uses Register has revealed which organisations can access the data, such as public sector bodies and charities. Each organisation wanting to use the data must have a legitimate and legal reason such as health and care planning and research purposes. Simon Bolton, NHS Digital’s interim CEO, said: “The new Data Uses Register is an important improvement to make our data sharing agreements more transparent and user-friendly. We take our responsibility as th

    Ministers are to legislate more powers over how data on patients is collected and are imposing a 'duty' on the NHS to share patient information when doing so would benefit the system. The Health and Social Care Act 2021 already allows for sharing of data on an individual basis but staff have reported finding it hard to share it when it comes to primary and secondary care and administrative purposes. The new draft strategy produced by NHSX, has suggested it may want to use cloud storage to create a set of “structured data records” with the idea that it would make it easier for patie

    The NHS has been advised to change the way they identify patients who are sick from coronavirus and those who test positive. Up until now, hospitals have recorded patients sick from the virus and those who tested positive together, whether they presented with symptoms or not. The new advice has been given with the hope that it will reduce the numbers of patients in hospital for the virus. Read full story. Source: The Independent, 9 June 2021

    A group of patient activists has set up a new website using official NHS data to allow patients to check the waiting times for treatments at their local hospital. The new waiting times tool is thought to be the first automated and regularly updated website that shows hospital performance against key waiting time targets, by medical specialty such as cardiology or orthopaedics. The service, developed by volunteers from the not-for-profit Patient Experience Library, not only shows patients how many people are waiting to be treated overall but also shows data on the median waiting time

    Labour has urged the NHS and Matt Hancock to pause their plan to share medical records from GPs to allow time for greater consultation on how the idea would work, saying that maintaining patients’ trust must be paramount. In a letter to the head of NHS Digital and the health secretary, the shadow public health minister, Alex Norris, said Labour backed the principle of improved data collaboration but shared the concerns of some doctors’ groups. The Royal College of General Practitioners warned NHS Digital a week ago that plans to pool medical pseudonymised records on to a database and

    ‘Disparity ratios’ highlighting how staff with minority ethnic backgrounds are represented at different levels in each trust have been created by the national workforce race equality standard programme to help tackle ‘racist practice’ in the NHS. NHS England head of WRES Professor Anton Emmanuel said the data had been created to indicate the differences in progression between white people and those from an ethnic minority background through the ranks of each organisation. Detail of the methodology used to calculate the ratios has not been published, but it appears they have been dete

    The number of people suffering with long Covid should be published routinely, as happens with those infected with or hospitalised with coronavirus, MPs and peers are urging Boris Johnson. The cross-party group of parliamentarians want the prime minister to ensure that the “untold human suffering” that the condition involves helps shape future government policy towards the pandemic. Thirty-two MPs and 33 peers have signed a letter urging Johnson to give greater priority to the potential harm posed by long Covid following the Office for National Statistics’ finding last week that an es

    Miscarriage may be associated with an increased risk of early death, researchers have said. The BMJ published a study suggesting that this risk is particularly acute for those who have experienced repeated miscarriages, especially ones that occurred early on in a woman’s life. US-based researchers said that women who had experienced a miscarriage were 19% more likely to die prematurely. They pointed out that a miscarriage “could be an early marker of future health risk in women.” The authors of the paper hoped to see if there was any link between miscarriage and a risk of death
