    Unpaid carers looking after terminally ill friends and relatives during the pandemic struggled to access pain relief, with some patients dying in unnecessary pain, a survey has found. The survey of 995 unpaid carers by Marie Curie also found people had difficulties getting personal care and respite nursing for loved ones. Figures show the number of people dying at home rose by 42% in the past year. Nearly two-thirds of carers surveyed by the charity said their loved one did not get all the pain relief they needed when they were dying. Susan Lowe, from Solihull, cared for he

    A lack of face-to-face appointments during the coronavirus pandemic has significantly worsened the palliative care being provided to people at the end of their life, according to a survey of specialists. The research, which the Association of Palliative Medicine and end of life charity Marie Curie shared exclusively with HSJ, found 95% of respondents said their ability to provide good quality end-of-life care had been affected because patients had not received their “usual contact” such as visits from GPs or social care staff. Three-quarters said this had a “great” or “massive” impact.

    Do-not-resuscitate orders were wrongly allocated to some care home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, causing potentially avoidable deaths, the first phase of a review by England’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) has found. The regulator warned that some of the “inappropriate” do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DNACPR) notices applied in the spring may still be in place and called on all care providers to check with the person concerned that they consent. The review was prompted by concerns about the blanket application of the orders in care homes in the early part of t

    Elderly care home residents have been categorised “en masse” as not requiring resuscitation, in a strategy branded unacceptable by the healthcare regulator. People in care homes in Hove, East Sussex and south Wales are among those who have had “do not attempt resuscitation” (DNAR) notices applied to their care plans during the coronavirus outbreak without proper consultation with them or their families, MPs and medical unions fear. Care homes in Leeds have reported that district nurses have been asking them to “revisit do not resuscitate conversations with people who said they didn’t

    A GP surgery has apologised after sending a letter asking patients with life-limiting illnesses to complete a "do not resuscitate" form. A letter, from Llynfi Surgery in Maesteg, asks people to sign to ensure emergency services would not be called if their condition deteriorated due to coronavirus. "We will not abandon you.. but we have to be frank and realistic," it said. Cwm Taf health board issued an apology from the surgery, the Guardian reports. The letter says in an "ideal situation" doctors would have had this conversation in person but had written to them due to fea

    MEs are a key element of the death certification reforms, which, once in place, will deliver a more comprehensive system of assurances for all non-coronial deaths, regardless of whether the deceased is buried or cremated. MEs will be employed in the NHS system, ensuring lines of accountability are separate from NHS Acute Trusts but allowing for access to information in the sensitive and urgent timescales to register a death. This case study outlines the approach of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as one of the early adopter sites. To date, the following learning points have

    Palliative care doctors are urging people to have a conversation about what they would want if they, or their loved ones, became seriously unwell with coronavirus. We should discuss all possible scenarios - even those we are not "comfortable to talk about", they said. Medics said the virus underlined the importance of these conversations. New guidelines are being produced for palliative care for Covid-19 patients, the BBC understands. Read full story Source: BBC News, 21 March 2020

    The government is under pressure to go further on measures to relax rules on powerful painkillers such as morphine to prevent patients suffering “unnecessary pain and distress in the last days of their lives”. On Tuesday the health secretary, Matt Hancock, announced staff in care homes and hospices would be allowed to “re-use” controlled drugs such as morphine and midazolam, with medication prescribed for one patient used for another where there is an immediate need. But the Home Office today confirmed to The Independent that it had no plans to extend the rules to the care of patient

    The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has awarded 'Outstanding' ratings to St Giles Hospice in Walsall and Whittington. The CQC, an independent regulator of health and social care services in England, has recently introduced a new regime holding hospices to the same level of scrutiny as hospitals, making this outstanding rating all the more impressive. St Giles hospice, founded in 1983, started as a charity caring for local people dying from cancer and now supports people living with incurable illnesses and their families for free. Care providers from the hospice work on-site and i
