    Key messages 90% of National Nurses Associations (NNAs) are somewhat or extremely concerned that heavy workloads, and insufficient resourcing, burnout and stress related to the pandemic response are the drivers resulting in increased numbers of nurses who have left the profession, and increased reported rates of intention to leave this year and when the pandemic is over. 20% of NNAs reported an increased rate of nurses leaving the profession in 2020 and studies from associations around the world have consistently highlighted increased intention to leave rates.

    Survey highlights Across the 10 high-income countries included in this study, most doctors reported increases in their workload since the beginning of the pandemic. Younger doctors (under age 55) were more likely to experience stress, emotional distress, or burnout and, in nearly all countries, were more likely to seek professional help compared to older doctors. Doctors who experienced stress, emotional distress, or burnout were more likely to report providing worse quality of care compared to before the pandemic. Half or more of older doctors in most countries report

    What you need to know Work related stress is an important problem in the NHS workforce. Addressing the underlying cause, which may relate to factors such as workplace demand, relationships, and support is necessary for sustained recovery and full engagement with work. Healthcare workers may experience guilt or shame due to stigma, preventing them from seeking help if they experience work related mental illness. Time off work and workplace changes to control the triggers may be necessary to allow recovery and sustainable return to work. Healthcare workers experiencing w

    The NHS has opened 81 long COVID assessment clinics across England and invested more than £50m in research to help improve understanding of the condition, from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation and recovery. In Scotland and Wales, Long Covid is primarily being managed in primary care through GPs. However, access to help has been patchy. Geraint Jones, advanced pharmacist specialising in HIV and homecare at Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board in Wales, is frustrated by the lack of a clear pathway for managing Long Covid and has struggled to access services in Wales.

    Unpaid carers in Northern Ireland are suffering from "shocking levels of poor health", according to the charity Carers NI. In a survey of more than 1,600 unpaid carers across Northern Ireland, more than a quarter of respondents described their mental health as bad or very bad. One in five carers said the same about their physical health.

    Almost 90% of those living with Long Covid in Ireland have not returned to their pre-Covid level of health, according to a new report. The study of 988 participants was carried out by APC Microbiome Ireland, a research centre based at University College Cork (UCC), in conjunction with Cork University Hospital and Long Covid Advocacy Ireland. It found that more than two-thirds of participants in the study continued to experience fatigue, memory problems, chest pain, stomach upset, and muscle pain.

    The report covers the following issues: Access to general practice Continuity of care General practice and new NHS organisations The GP partnership It makes the following key recommendations: The Government needs to acknowledge that general practice in in crisis and that patient access to a GP is unacceptably poor. The Government should commission a review into short-term problems that constrain primary care, including the interface between primary and secondary care, prescribing from signing to dispensing, administrative tasks, day-to-day usabilit

    Staff at accident and emergency departments across Scotland have expressed “deep concern” at the daily “excessively long waiting times” that are forcing a record number of patients to wait more than 12 hours, according to a leading NHS consultant. Dr John-Paul Loughrey, vice-chair of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine Scotland national board, warned that while such long waits were once regarded as “never events,” they are now daily occurrences. Amid fears the delays will spike significantly over the winter months, especially with another wave of Covid-19 expected, Dr Loughrey sa

    Long Covid clinics across Australia are being inundated with requests for assessments from patients struggling with ongoing symptoms, an inquiry has heard. Doctors told the federal parliamentary inquiry into long and repeated coronavirus infections that they were struggling to keep up with demand as waitlists increased. At least 10 million Australians have been infected with Covid and it is estimated 3-5% will develop Long Covid at some point. “Our waitlist is increasing because what we’ve observed is that it can take some time for the recognition of post-Covid conditions, parti

    Doctors recruited from some of the world's poorest countries to work in UK hospitals say they're being exploited - and believe they're so overworked they fear putting patients' health at risk. A BBC investigation has found evidence that doctors from Nigeria are being recruited by a British healthcare company and expected to work in private hospitals under conditions not allowed in the National Health Service. The British Medical Association (BMA) has described the situation as "shocking" and says the sector needs to be brought in line with NHS working practices. Dr Jenny Vaughan

    Doctors suffering from burnout are far more likely to be involved in incidents where patients’ safety is compromised, a global study has found. Burned-out medics are also much more likely to consider quitting, regret choosing medicine as their career, be dissatisfied with their job and receive low satisfaction ratings from patients. The findings, published in the BMJ, have raised fresh concern over the welfare and pressures on doctors in the NHS, given the extensive evidence that many are experiencing stress and exhaustion due to overwork. A joint team of British and Greek resea

    A study of over 1,000 health and social care workers, conducted by Florence, the tech platform providing health & social care workers access to available shifts, found that almost a third of healthcare workers admit to feeling overwhelmed at least once a week, with 17% feeling burnt-out every day.
