    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

    The quality and performance of services will suffer if medical training is not ‘prioritised and funded’ by trusts, Health Education England (HEE) has warned. HEE has set out actions in its “Covid training recovery interim report” that must be done alongside NHS England, the Department of Health and Social Care and others to protect post-covid workforce recovery. At the beginning of the pandemic, junior doctors’ training was severely disrupted because thousands of staff were redeployed to covid wards, while most routine elective operations and diagnostic procedures were stopped.

    The Training Recovery Interim Progress Report outlines the approach taken to define, manage and reduce risks to medical workforce wellbeing, numbers and future supply. It also sets out our joint commitments for continuing to build upon and embed the progress we have made to facilitate training recovery and secure future improvements to Post Graduate Medical Education. As a result of HEE and partners’ interventions, extension rates are currently lower than original projections. However, the number of trainees with a training backlog has grown over the duration of the programme. These train

    Consultants at a major tertiary centre have written to their chief executive, warning services are in ‘an extremely unsafe situation’ and calling for elective work to be diverted elsewhere. Surgeons and anaesthetists at the former Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust — now part of University Hospitals Sussex Foundation Trust — said: “We are devastated to report that the care we aspire to is not being provided at UHS… we are forced to contemplate that it is not safe to be open as a trauma tertiary centre and we feel elective activity must be proactively diverted elsewhere.”

    The NHS may be unable to cope this winter because of a “frightening” shortfall of more than 50,000 doctors, the head of the British Medical Association has warned. The number of medics in England has fallen further behind comparable European countries over the summer, ahead of what is predicted to be one of the worst winters in the 73-year history of the health service, Dr Chaand Nagpaul said. “Winter is an incredibly difficult time for the health service,” he said. “With flu season on the horizon and even fewer staff this time round, it’s a total unknown as to how well our services

    The family of a senior medic and lifelong NHS campaigner have called for an investigation into his death as it took paramedics more than half an hour to arrive at his home after operators were told he was suffering a cardiac arrest. Professor Kailash Chand, a former British Medical Association deputy chair, had complained of chest pains before one of his neighbours, a consultant anaesthetist at Manchester Royal Infirmary, called 111 for help before telling the call handler within three minutes that he believed his friend was having a cardiac arrest. “I was answering their questions w

    The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront health inequalities relating to the colour of a patient’s skin. However, this is not a new issue and patients have always faced barriers in healthcare due to the colour of their skin. Impacting factors can include explicit racial bias, which includes discrimination and prejudice; implicit racial bias; missing data; lack of trust; and reduced access.[1] These can lead to misdiagnoses and delays in treatment, which can ultimately cause harm and preventable death. Dangerous gaps in training Medical training has, to date, primarily centre

    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.

Paid and unpaid overtime may be stopped if the figure is not increased to at least 4% says the British Medical Association.

    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
