    To address health disparities, we need to focus on improving health literacy, digital literacy and digital access. In this 30-minute live webinar and Q&A from Health Education England, you will find out about our newly available maps and online tool using, place-based geodata to identify levels of health literacy and digital access in your area. The session will also introduce easy read resources for shared decision making, co-produced with experts by experience, and how to use these are part of a series of steps to address local health disparities.

    One hot Saturday in June, I sat with my nine-year-old at our local NHS walk-in centre. His toe was very swollen following a minor injury a few days before, and we’d been advised by a pharmacist to get it checked out. The waiting room was packed and it was a couple of hours before we were seen by the nurse. She gestured at the bed while she sat and finished her notes from the last patient—apparently the IT system hadn’t been playing ball. When she eventually took a look at my son’s foot, she grimaced, but didn’t say much. Her bedside manner wasn’t the best, but I figured that was OK as lon

    NHS England set up a handful of specialist mesh centres in April 2021 to offer treatment and support to women harmed by vaginal mesh surgery. But they aren’t achieving what they need to, and this failure is leaving thousands of women harmed by mesh without help to deal with their life-changing complications, and without hope that their pain will ever be taken seriously. Here are ten problems with specialist mesh centres, identified through my regular contact with thousands of women suffering from mesh complications. 1. There are long waiting lists of sometimes more than a year just f

    Is it time to change the way England's healthcare system is funded? Is the English system in need of radical structural change at the top? I've been prompted to think about this by the article about the German public health system on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-62986347.amp There are no quick fixes, however we all need to look at this closely. I believe that really 'modernising' / 'transforming' our health & #socialcare systems could 'save the #NHS'. Both for #patients through improved safety, efficiency & accountability, and by making the #NHS

    1 Blog - Inappropriate prescribing during a pandemic: dementia and antipsychotics A growing number of people with dementia who live in care homes are being prescribed antipsychotic medication, but there are serious questions about whether these drugs are being prescribed appropriately. In this blog, a family describes how their father with Alzheimer’s disease came to be prescribed antipsychotic medication at his care home. They raise concerns about the decision to prescribe antipsychotics when there were obvious non-drug based alternatives to pursue, the lack of involvement the family had

    These four vlogs are edited versions of vlogs originally commissioned by the NHS. They are all fully referenced based on UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and on the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Prescribing Competency Framework for all prescribers (see the video description) and contain links to useful sources of further information. Shared decision making - 'It's my decision', which covers the latest NICE Guideline on shared decision making. 'Too much information' - Dealing with information overload on medicines & prescribing, which inclu

    For the last 40 years, mainstream nursing workforce research has emphasised that having more registered nurses leads to better patient outcomes, and yet staffing policies have failed to implement this crucial concept. Meanwhile, global nursing shortages have become rampant, a problem that only dilutes the skill-mix ratios in the nursing workforce. There remains a dearth of well-researched evidence for a clear threshold on optimal safe staffing levels that could maximise quality of care relative to cost given limited healthcare financial budgets and which could also be fitted into each care set

    Handover in hospitals is the cause of frequent and severe harm to patients, according to new research* by digital health platform, CAREFUL. Many patients are suffering because handover is poorly controlled and under-recognised as a source of clinical risk. Handover is the transfer of responsibility and crucial patient information between practitioners and teams. Handover takes place when shifts change and when patients are transferred between departments or outside of the hospital into another care setting. This is a time when staff are under pressure and when mistakes can happen – as the
