    Internationally, there is a growing awareness on diagnostic errors as a major – and too often overlooked – patient safety problem. According to analyses conducted by the Danish Society for Patient Safety, diagnostic errors are not only common, but they also have major consequences for patients and the healthcare system’s finances. In this article, Charlotte Frendved and Siri Tribler hope that by raising awareness of the diagnostic process and possible vulnerabilities can help improve patient safety.

    Drug companies are systematically funding grassroots patient groups that lobby the NHS medicines watchdog to approve the rollout of their drugs, the Observer has revealed. An investigation by the Observer has found that of 173 drug appraisals conducted by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) since April 2021, 138 involved patient groups that had a financial link to the maker of the drug being assessed, or have since received funding. Often, the financial interests were not clearly disclosed in NICE transparency documents. Many of the groups that received the payments went on to make impassioned pleas to England’s medicines watchdog calling for treatments to be approved for diseases and illnesses including cancer, heart disease, migraine and diabetes. Others made submissions appealing NICE decisions when medicines were refused for being too expensive. In one case, a small heart failure charity that gave evidence to a NICE committee arguing for a drug to be approved received £200,000 from the pharmaceutical company, according to the maker’s spending records. In another case, a cancer patient group supplied evidence relating to drugs made by 10 companies – from nine of which it had received funding. Read full story Source: The Guardian, 22 July 2023

    NHS trusts have committed to financial plans without properly considering their consequences, with finance directors turning a blind eye to unrealistic forecasts under pressure from NHS England, some of the country’s top NHS chief executives have warned. Many of the senior trust leaders speaking at HSJ’s Top CEOs roundtable admitted they had gone further than they wanted to in agreeing to higher levels of planned savings. At the roundtable event, University College London Hospitals Foundation Trust CEO David Probert said there were “definite challenges to the professionalism of some of our fantastic finance leaders”, who were “being asked to put in place plans that [they] may not fully agree are deliverable or are highly risky.” Read full story (paywalled) Source: HSJ, 7 July 2023

    HSJ brought together a panel of trust chief executives drawn from its annual list of the NHS’s Top 50 CEOs. Their discussion explored how trusts will cope with the renewed financial challenge and what values-based leadership means to them. Many of the CEOs at the roundtable complained there no longer seemed to be any reward for good financial performance now that the health of system finances trumped those at individual organisations.

    Pharmaceutical giants are pouring tens of millions of pounds into struggling NHS services – including paying the salaries of medical staff and funding the redesign of patient treatment – as they seek to boost drug sales in the UK, the Observer can reveal. The spending is revealed in an investigation that lays bare the growing role of Big Pharma in the UK’s health sector, with analysis of more than 300,000 drug company transactions since 2015 showing a surge in spending on activities other than research and development (R&D). Payments to UK health professionals and organisations, including donations, sponsorship, consultancy fees and expenses, reached a record £200m in 2022, excluding R&D with companies seeking to promote lucrative drugs for obesity, diabetes and heart conditions among the biggest spenders. The rise in spending raises concerns about the growing influence of pharmaceutical companies in the NHS as it reaches its 75th anniversary milestone. Amid record pressure on services, drug giants say closer collaboration can help deliver major benefits to patients. NHS England said collaborations with industry helped patients “benefit from faster access to innovative treatments” and that it was “not unusual for industry to provide funding to support service delivery in areas such as improving cardiovascular health, tackling infectious disease or rolling out innovative cancer therapies”. It added that “strict safeguards” were in place for managing conflicts of interest. Read full story Source: The Guardian, 8 July 2023
