    OurDX attempts to close communication gaps between different health care professionals and patients by making it easy to share information and ensuring transparency. Patients have access to clinician notes, meaning they can flag any perceived errors or areas of conflicting understanding. The tool also allows patients and their families to document their priorities, concerns and symptoms prior to a medical appointment. Preliminary findings The number of patient-reported diagnostic breakdowns has been relatively small. Giving patients the opportunity to write about their experi

    About a third of NHS trusts in England are using “technically obsolete” imaging equipment that could be putting patients’ health at risk, while existing shortages of doctors who are qualified to diagnose and treat disease and injuries using medical imaging techniques could triple by 2030. According to data obtained through freedom of information requests by Channel 4’s Dispatches programme, 27.1% of trusts in NHS England have at least one computerised tomography (CT) scanner that is 10 years old or more, while 34.5% have at least one magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner in the same ca

    GPs are failing to urgently refer patients with “red flag” signs of suspected cancer to a specialist, research suggests. Six out of 10 patients in England with key symptoms indicating possible cancer did not receive an urgent referral for specialist assessment within two weeks, as recommended in clinical guidelines, according to a new study. Nearly 4% of these patients were subsequently diagnosed with cancer within the next 12 months. The findings were published in the journal BMJ Quality & Safety. In the study, researchers analysed records from almost 49,000 patients who co

    It could take more than a decade to clear the cancer-treatment backlog in England, a report suggests. Research by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) estimated 19,500 people who should have been diagnosed had not been, because of missed referrals. If hospitals could achieve a 5% increase in the number of treatments over pre-pandemic levels, it would take until 2033 to clear the backlog. However, if 15% more could be completed, backlogs could be cleared by next year. Between March 2020 and February 2021, the number of referrals to see a specialist dropped by nearly 3

    Each report seeks to increase the number of people living with dementia with a diagnosis by: reducing regional variation in diagnosissupporting those from an ethnic minority community to access a diagnosisincreasing diagnosis for people residing in a care home or hospital setting.The reports set out a roadmap in how to achieve this change. But a diagnosis is not done in isolation. It requires all health and social care professionals involved in dementia care to recognise the symptoms of dementia and to initiate the process to diagnosis, which itself facilitates access to vital care and support

    At least three people died and more came to ‘severe harm’ after treatment delays across three specialties at one hospital trust, new reports have revealed. King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust commissioned harm reviews due to problems with a lack of capacity and poor management of waiting lists in endoscopy, dermatology and ophthalmology pre-pandemic. Most of the problems relate to the trust’s southern site, Princess Royal University Hospital, and took place before the current executive team took over. The most recent board papers revealed a review of 614 cases at the PRUH’s endo

    'Dr Lucy Johnstone, one of the lead authors of the Power Threat Meaning Framework, said: "The Power Threat Meaning Framework can be used as a way of helping people to create more hopeful narratives or stories about their lives and the difficulties they have faced or are still facing, instead of seeing themselves as blameworthy, weak, deficient or ‘mentally ill’. It highlights and clarifies the links between wider social factors such as poverty, discrimination and inequality, along with traumas such as abuse and violence, and the resulting emotional distress or troubled behaviour, whet
