    Sajid Javid’s claim that the number of NHS roles dedicated to promoting equality and diversity should be cut is incorrect and not what the government-commissioned review into NHS management recommended, according to its author. The review by General Sir Gordon Messenger and Leeds Teaching Hospital chair Dame Linda Pollard was published Wednesday. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph on Tuesday evening, the health secretary said: “In my view, there are already too many working in roles focused solely on diversity and inclusion, and at a time when our constituents are facing real pressures

    All the NHS’s 1.5m staff in England should tackle discrimination against disadvantaged groups, not just bosses and specialist diversity teams, a major review has concluded. NHS trusts will need fewer equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) teams if action against discrimination does become “the responsibility of all”, according to the report. The review of NHS leadership said the health service should adopt a different approach to equality issues in order to overcome the widely recognised disadvantages faced by certain groups of its own staff, which include lower pay and chances of p

    The 'Leadership for a collaborative and inclusive future' review, led Sir Gordon Messenger and supported by Dame Linda Pollard, focused on the best ways to strengthen leadership and management across health and with its key interfaces with adult social care in England. Findings Cultures and behaviours The review found that the current cultural environment does not lend itself to the collaborative leadership needed to deliver health and social care in a changing and diverse environment. Leadership is seen as a job role rather than a characteristic that runs through the workforc

    Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Committee on Improving the Representation of Women and Underrepresented Minorities in Clinical Trials and Research as it discusses its newly released report Improving Representation in Clinical Trials and Research: Building Research Equity for Women and Underrepresented Groups. This new report makes a compelling case for why we need more equitable participation in clinical trials and clinical research, including an economic analysis on the cost of health disparities in the United States. It provides a review of the barri

    Key issues raised Certain core skills and behaviours should apply in any leadership context, and a light-touch national framework that provides a consistent approach to developing leaders needs to be created to support people to develop these. The review should emphasise the new operating environment the NHS is moving into through integrated care systems (ICSs) and place-based partnerships. The focus on integration and collaboration will require different leadership characteristics than those incentivised by a system driven by marketisation and competition. Establishing a cu

    In this online event, the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors will be launching their new guidance packed with information on how human factors as a discipline can help address Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) issues. You’ll learn: How human factors can support the different protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. How human factors techniques and approaches contribute to EDI by increasing buy-in and engagement. How storytelling of lived experiences helps build a stronger sense of empathy. Who will this be of interest to?

    A few months ago, a friend of mine began to experience some worrying symptoms; he was diagnosed by his GP with anxiety and depression, and prescribed antidepressants. Like around half of the UK population,[1] my friend identifies with a faith tradition, and when he felt hesitant about taking the medication he’d been prescribed, his first port of call was to talk to a faith leader he trusted, who listened to his concerns and encouraged him to pursue the treatment he had been prescribed by his doctor. My friend did feel able to begin his treatment, and is doing much better. Supporting peopl

    From the end of 2021, a question on sexual activity of partners in areas where HIV is widespread will be removed from the donor safety check form, in an effort to increase inclusivity among donors. The changes will particularly improve the ease to donate blood for Black African donors. Currently, prospective donors are asked if they have recently had sex with a partner who may ever have been sexually active in an area where HIV is endemic, which includes most of sub-Saharan Africa. If they have, the donor will then be deferred for three months after the last sexual contact with that

    A major British medical school is leading the drive to eliminate what it calls "inherent racism" in the way doctors are trained in the UK. The University of Bristol Medical School says urgent action is needed to examine why teaching predominantly focuses on how illnesses affect white people above all other sections of the population. It comes after students pushed for reform, saying gaps in their training left them ill-prepared to treat ethnic minority patients – potentially compromising patient safety. Hundreds of other UK medical students have signed petitions demanding teachi

    White doctors applying for medical posts in London are six times more likely to be offered a job than black applicants, figures released under the Freedom of Information Act show. The new data also show that white doctors are four times more likely to be successful than Asian candidates or candidates from a mixed ethnic background. The figures were uncovered by Sheila Cunliffe, a senior human resources professional who works in workforce transformation across the NHS and the wider public sector. Cunliffe sent freedom of information requests to all 18 NHS acute trusts in London asking

    Trusts underperforming on leadership diversity should not be rated “good” or “outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the NHS Confederation chair has told HSJ. Victor Adebowale said he did not understand how organisations can achieve the top CQC ratings if they do not demonstrate sufficient diversity at senior levels. Lord Adebowale was speaking to HSJ alongside Marie Gabriel, following Ms Gabriel being appointed last month to chair the new NHS Race and Health Observatory, which is being hosted by the confederation. The influential peer’s comments also follow the new

    Some years ago I stopped writing for journals, in favour of blogging & volgging. My reasons were: I specialise in patient involvement and inclusion, so I want the work of me and my colleagues to be easily found by everyone We didn't want our work to end up behind a paywall We work across disciplines and try to bypass hierarchies, especially in promoting action learning and patient led care I can see there are some really good Open Access Journals around. So my question for us all is: Which are the best Open Access Journals? Here a link to my digital profile:

    The virtual service was implemented initially as a work-based project by the Hospital Liaison Nurse (HLN) over an 18-month period between 2017 and 2019. It was designed to keep the patient very much in the centre of their care with regular patient/carer remote contact, ongoing assessment, monitoring, clinical decision making and person-centred care planning. In a consultative capacity, the HLN was enabled to work remotely and maintain ongoing close patient/carer contact, effective case management and improved communication across multiagency professionals. This included ongoing virtual collabo
