    All healthcare workers, from nurses to pharmacists, housekeepers to consultants, should be kept safe as they carry out their essential duties in caring for others. Not only is their physical safety important, but their psychological wellbeing is paramount too. Healthcare workers should be kept safe from all forms of physical occupational hazard, including infectious agents, chemical hazards, workplace violence and ergonomic problems.[1] Specific measures have been put in place to protect the occupational health and safety of health workers, and there are consequential duties, rights and r

    England's senior doctors may take industrial action if the offer of 1% pay rise is not improved. Paid and unpaid overtime may be stopped if the figure is not increased to at least 4% says the British Medical Association. The BMA have also said industrial action may impact patient clinics and attempts to shorten waiting lists if it goes ahead. The Department of Health has said the government was committed to a wage rise for NHS staff, including consultants. Read full story. Source: BBC, 2 July 2021

    The traditional approach towards health and disease was, until recent decades, the medical or biological model where a patient’s illness was treated solely by medical means.[1] However, research has challenged this approach and developed a more extensive model of health that incorporates psychological and social factors. This allows for better treatment, management and understanding of health and disease. The Biopsychosocial Model was proposed by Engel in 1977. It implies that biological, psychological and social factors all play a significant role in health and disease and may influence

    Almost 7,000 junior doctors who treated patients during the Covid pandemic are at risk of falling behind with their training, potentially causing staffing shortages and costing taxpayers a potential £260m. The worst-case scenario estimate of the impact of the pandemic on frontline medics has prompted ministers to inject an extra £30m to try to help doctors finish training so they can progress their careers. Ensuring medics progress into their next roles is viewed as crucial to ensuring the health service has the doctors it needs to try and reduce the massive waiting list for operatio

    Thousands of doctors feel under pressure from their employers to work extra shifts, often unpaid, to help tackle the backlog of care caused by the covid pandemic, the BMA has warned. The warning came after results from the BMA’s latest tracker survey showed that more than half its respondents (58%, 2834 of 4876) had worked extra hours in the previous month as part of the response to the pandemic. Almost a third (29%, 1387) said they were not paid for the additional time they worked. More than two fifths (44%) of respondents (2086 of 4719) said they felt under pressure from their empl

    Ten junior doctors have been removed from a struggling hospital over concerns they were being left without adequate supervision on understaffed wards. Health Education England (HEE) removed the 10 foundation year one doctors, all on a general medicine rota, from Weston General Hospital last month. The General Medical Council said the trust’s previous efforts to address the issues “have not been sufficient or sustainable”. University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Foundation Trust did not say which services HEE had removed the juniors from or what mitigations had been put in place. Howe

    Thousands of UK doctors are planning to quit the NHS after the Covid pandemic because they are exhausted by their workloads and worried about their mental health, a survey has revealed. Almost one in three may retire early while a quarter are considering taking a career break and a fifth are weighing up quitting the health service to do something else. Long hours, high demand for care, the impact of the pandemic and unpleasant working environments are taking their toll on medics, the British Medical Association findings show. Dr Chaand Nagpaul, the leader of the BMA, said the hi

    Almost 20% of patients seen by neurology consultant Dr Michael Watt were given a wrong diagnosis, a report has found. A review of 927 of Dr Watt's high-risk patients found 181 people received a diagnosis described as "not secure", Health Minister Robin Swann said. He was speaking as the Belfast Trust announced the recall of a further 209 neurology patients seen and discharged by Dr Watt between 1996 and 2012. This is the third such recall. Dr Watt was at the centre of Northern Ireland's biggest patient recall linked to his work at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital. Mr

    Nearly 90% of organisations representing doctors agree that the UK should have a mandatory and public register of doctors’ interests, a survey by The BMJ has found. Last year the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review, chaired by Julia Cumberlege, called for the General Medical Council (GMC) to expand its register to include a list of financial and non-pecuniary interests for all doctors. That review investigated harmful side effects caused by the hormone pregnancy test Primodos, the anti-epileptic drug sodium valproate, and surgical mesh. One of its key conclusions

    Doctors in pain management have raised concerns about the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence’s guidance on treating chronic primary pain, which they said do not reflect clinical practice or current evidence. Patients could be left in “despair,” said the British Pain Society, because of the recommendation that the only drugs that doctors should prescribe are certain antidepressants. Commonly prescribed drugs, including paracetamol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, benzodiazepines, and opioids, should not be used to treat chronic primary pain, said NICE. Instead patients

    Many doctors from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds say key risk assessments have still not taken place, or have not been acted on. About 40% of UK doctors in the UK are from BAME backgrounds, yet 95% of the medics who have died from coronavirus were from minority backgrounds. The NHS said last June that its trusts should offer risk assessments to staff, but hundreds told a poll for BBC News that they were still awaiting assessments or action. Of 2,000 doctors who responded, 328 said their risks hadn't been assessed at all, while 519 said they had had a risk assessmen

    Doctors are being issued with new guidance for cases where children are repeatedly brought in when there is nothing wrong. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) says cases where parents know there's nothing wrong are rare. Instead genuine, if misplaced, health anxieties are more common. They advise referring to "perplexing symptoms" instead of "fabricated or induced illness". Paediatricians say there has been a rise in cases where children are repeatedly brought in, despite nothing being found to be wrong. The unexplained symptoms could be because a gen

    Guidance from NHS England that doctors may lawfully use video assessments during the pandemic to decide whether patients should be detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act was wrong, two High Court judges have ruled. The act makes it a legal requirement that doctors must “personally examine” a patient before recommending detention. A code of practice requires “direct personal examination of the patient and their mental state.” But guidance from NHS England just after the start of the first lockdown last March said that “temporary departures from the code of practice may be justifi

    Emergency legislation is needed to protect doctors and nurses from “inappropriate” legal action over critical Covid treatment decisions made amid the pressures of the pandemic, health organisations have argued. A coalition of health bodies has written to Matt Hancock, the health secretary, calling for the law to be updated so medical workers do not feel “vulnerable to the risk of prosecution for unlawful killing” when treating coronavirus patients “in circumstances beyond their control”. The letter, coordinated by the Medical Protection Society (MPS), states there are no legal safegu

    Doctors and nurses on the front line of the fight against coronavirus at the Royal London Hospital – which has the largest number of Covid patients in the capital – have been denied the Pfizer vaccine, The Independent has learnt. Hospital bosses at Barts Health Trust have written to staff today expressing their frustration over the decisions by NHS England, which meant the northeast of London – where the rate of infections and hospitalisations are worst – has not been given access to any vaccines. The Independent has learned that staff from the Royal London booked appointments to be
