    Key findings HSIB has a very committed and skilled staff team who do great and important work. The organisation exists in a very uncertain current and future context, with confusing accountability and the added complexity of being subject to legislation currently going through Parliament. Unclear governance and accountability are compounded by confusion about organisational policies and processes not being followed, while HR support has been lacking. We heard mixed views about leadership and culture in different teams. Many staff report poor behaviours from the executi

    Women including refugees, asylum seekers, and undocumented migrants are being charged as much as £14,000 to give birth on the NHS in England, a report by Doctors of the World (DOTW) has found. The report, which examined inequalities in maternity care among migrant pregnant women and babies, gathered the experiences of 257 pregnant women accessing DOTW’s services from 2017 to 2021. It found that over a third (38%) who accessed its services had been charged for healthcare, often inappropriately. The women were charged £296 to £14 000, and half of them were billed over £7000. The report

    The key findings of the report included that: A very small proportion of women had been taking folic acid before conception compared to the national average. The vast majority women in the cohort (81%) had their first antenatal care appointment beyond the recommended 10 weeks of pregnancy. More than four in ten (45%) of the women did not have any antenatal care until after 16 weeks of pregnancy, compared to just one in ten women nationally. Within this group more than four in ten women with undocumented, uncertain, refugee or asylum seeker status (45%) and six in ten women

    People with disabilities must be helped more by health providers to access information, a report has found. Over 300 people in North Yorkshire were asked about communication from GPs, hospitals, and healthcare providers in a survey by watchdog Healthwatch. The report said there is "some good practice" but many patients are not being contacted in their preferred format. This leads to missed appointments which "costs time and money". Since 2016, the Accessible Information Standard means health and care organisations must legally provide a "consistent approach to identifying, recor

    Key points Research conducted by public bodies has shown that COVID-19 has had a greater impact, both directly and indirectly, on people who share certain protected characteristics (such as belonging to particular ethnicities or age categories, having a disability, or being women or from the LGBTQ+ community). Health and care services have a major role to play in both identifying the extent of these impacts as well as working together to reduce them. This report showcases examples of health and care systems across the country devising innovative approaches to mitigate the direct e

    Just over half of senior ethnic minority leaders have considered leaving the NHS due to experiencing workplace racism a survey suggests. The survey was carried out by the NHS Confederation’s BME Leadership Network and its 123 respondents included chief executives, directors and senior managers. Responses were collected from network members online before three roundtables were held with senior ethnic minority leaders to understand their experiences and the challenges they have faced in relation to discrimination. The survey found: 51% of respondents said they had consider

    Key points Racism and inclusion have become key areas of focus for the NHS in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on black and minority ethnic staff and patients. With diverse leadership a key plank of the NHS’s strategy to achieve equality, improving the working life for senior black and minority ethnic staff should be a critical priority for the health service. The Messenger Review into health and social care leadership advanced this cause, placing the need for more diverse senior leadership at the top of the NHS agenda. But a

    Key findings: Racism is widespread within the medical workforce. Over three quarters (76%) of respondents experienced racism in their workplace on at least one occasion in the last two years. Of these, 17% experienced racist incidents on a regular basis. Experiences of racism included discriminatory comments, being given fewer opportunities, more scrutiny of work, bullying by patients and colleagues, continued mispronunciation of names, and social exclusion. Overseas qualified doctors experience racism more often than doctors trained in the UK. 84% of respondents who qualified ove

    Black and Asian women are being harmed by racial discrimination in maternity care, according to an inquiry. The year-long investigation into "racial injustice" was conducted by the charity Birthrights. Women reported feeling unsafe, being denied pain relief, facing racial stereotyping about their pain tolerance, and microaggressions. The government has set up a taskforce to tackle racial disparities in maternity care. Hiral Varsani says she was traumatised by her treatment during the birth of her first child. The 31-year-old from north London developed sepsis - a poten

    Injured women are experiencing sex discrimination in the administration of a life-saving drug that cuts the risk of bleeding to death by 30%, researchers have warned. They found that female trauma victims were half as likely to receive tranexamic acid (TXA) as injured men – even though the treatment is equally effective regardless of sex. “These results are very concerning. TXA is the only proven life-saving treatment for traumatic bleeding. Women were treated less frequently than men regardless of their risk of death from bleeding or the severity of their injuries,” said Prof Ian Ro

    A “shocking” number of nurses from overseas are winding up “in trouble” or sanctioned within their first few months of working in the UK partly because of a lack of induction and support, a conference has heard. The issue was raised during a panel session at the Unison health conference in April discussing the importance of ethical recruitment practices in nursing and midwifery. According to Unison, it is supporting “many” overseas nurses who have been “exploited, unfairly treated and subject to racism” since their move. Among the panel was Gamu Nyasoro, a clinical skills and si

    GPs face “appalling and systemic” racism from patients and colleagues, a leaked NHS report has revealed. The first Health Education England report for London of its kind says racism and discrimination are widespread within primary care across the capital, and GPs in other parts of the country have raised similar concerns. Doctors speaking with The Independent have told stories of being called derogatory and racist names, of staff leaving due to the bigotry they’ve faced, and of patients asking to see a “white” or “English” GP. Senior GPs have warned patients will ultimately suff

    The authors recommend the following solutions to reduce patient safety inequalities: Individuals More routine involvement of advocates from patients’ communities in healthcare interactions to reinforce communication and ongoing support in care Purposeful consideration of how the social background of a patient may dictate risk of harm from healthcare, and adjust management and follow-up plans accordingly Use of culturally and linguistically appropriate shared decision making tools to empower involvement of marginalised patient groups in their care and safety Healt

    The recent BBC dramatisation of Adams Kay’s memoir of his time as an obstetrician and gynaecologist, 'This Is Going to Hurt', has hit a nerve with many. For some it’s a thought-provoking work of brilliance – that highlights the real-world fragility of the NHS and its workers. For others, the deep vein of misogyny that runs through it is unacceptable, and the dehumanised portrayal of childbirth triggering for many. Whilst the BBC series is semi-fictional, the objections are part of a trend of women speaking up about being mistreated/disbelieved by medical professionals, resulting in delays
