    An independent body set up by the NHS to tackle health inequalities has formally committed to never use blanket acronyms such as “BAME” after feedback that they are not representative. The NHS Race and Health Observatory launched a four-week consultation with the public in July on how best to collectively refer to people from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups. The Observatory said it has become the norm in public policy to use initialisms to refer to a “hugely diverse” group of people, but that renewed scrutiny has been spurred on by the Black Lives Matter movement. It sai

    Training gaps which already existed due to chronic underfunding and staff shortages have become worse due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and this report makes recommendations to improve local and national training at a critical time for maternity. Mind the Gap 2021 identifies and makes recommendations for workforce training in five priority areas: There needs to be a significant increase in funding to allow professionals to develop and maintain skills and to retain staff within maternity.

    The report makes the following recommendations: Putting in place more dedicated ‘High Intensity Use’ services across the country. Integrated Care Systems should develop strategies for addressing high intensity use across their areas, ensuring that there is adequate provision to meet need across acute settings, with a particular focus on areas of deprivation. Improving access to community-based support, to prevent people reaching crisis point. Investment is needed in VCSE provision linked to social prescribing and other key services, such as community mental health. Training and s

    The system for assessing who should be asked to pay for NHS services “incentivises racial profiling”, an investigation has found. A study by the Institute for Public Policy Research found that overstretched NHS staff sometimes racially profile patients in order to determine who is not “ordinarily resident” in the UK, and therefore must pay for their care. The report is critical of the more stringent charging regime introduced by NHS England over the past decade as part of a series of measures devised to create a hostile environment for people living in the UK without the correct immi

    A review into whether medical devices are equally effective regardless of the patient's ethnicity has been ordered by Health Secretary Sajid Javid. Research suggests oximeters, which are clipped to a person's finger, can overstate the level of oxygen in the blood of people from ethnic minorities. Ministers want to know whether bias could have prevented patients receiving appropriate Covid treatment. Mr Javid said any bias was "totally unacceptable". But the doctors' union the British Medical Association (BMA) said the review should not simply look at equipment, but also "st

    The increased risk of black and minority ethnic women dying during pregnancy needs to be seen as a whole system problem and not limited to just maternity departments, according to experts on an exclusive panel hosted by The Independent. Professor Marian Knight, from Oxford University told the virtual event on Wednesday night that the health service needed to change its approach to caring for ethnic minority women in a wider context. Campaigners Tinuke Awe and Clotilde Rebecca Abe, from the Fivexmore campaign, called for changes to the way midwives were trained and demanded it was tim

    Researchers are to use artificial intelligence (AI) in the hope of reducing risk to pregnant black women. Loughborough University experts are to work with the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) to identify patterns in its recent investigations. Research has suggested black women are more than four times more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth than white women in the UK. The researchers plan to look at more than 600 of HSIB's recent investigations into adverse outcomes during pregnancy and birth. The research team will develop a machine learning system capab

    Digital tools are a way to empower people and transform the way they receive and engage with health care services. In this way, digital tools contribute to the NHS long term plan commitment to a more concerted and systematic approach to reducing health inequalities and addressing unwarranted variation in care. 'Disruptive innovation' refers to technologies which address an unmet clinical need for the NHS, or which significantly improve current treatment options, and which are likely to be disruptive to current service delivery or lead to a step change in established care pathways in the UK.

The report by the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia, led by Pat McFadden MP, found evidence of sub-standard care for sickle cell patients admitted to general wards or attending A&E departments. The inquiry also found widespread lack of adherence to national care standards, low awareness of sickle cell among healthcare professionals and clear examples of inadequate training and insufficient investm

    Black women are more than four times more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth than white women in the UK, a review of 2017-2019 deaths shows.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) systems being developed to diagnose skin cancer run the risk of being less accurate for people with dark skin, research suggests. The potential of AI has led to developments in healthcare, with some studies suggesting image recognition technology based on machine learning algorithms can classify skin cancers as successfully as human experts. NHS trusts have begun exploring AI to help dermatologists triage patients with skin lesions. But researchers say more needs to be done to ensure the technology benefits all patients, after finding that few freely avai

    This review examined 21 sets of data on skin lesions, including more than 100,000 images. The findings of the review highlighted that many of the datasets were missing important information, such as how images were chosen to be included and evidence of ethical approval or patient consent. 14 of 21 datasets gave information on which country they came from and, of those, nine contained images from European countries. The review notes that only a small percentage of images were accompanied by information about the patients’ skin colour or ethnicity. Among pictures where skin colour was
