    Key points Average day-to-day health spending in the UK between 2010 and 2019 was £3,005 per person – 18% below the EU14 average of £3,655. If UK spending per person had matched the EU14 average, then the UK would have spent an average of £227bn a year on health between 2010 and 2019 – £40bn higher than actual average annual spending during this period (£187bn). Matching spending per head to France or Germany would have led to an additional £40bn and £73bn (21% to 39% increase respectively) of total health spending each year in the UK. Over the past decade, the UK had

    Findings: Most of these risk controls – 35 out of 42 – would be classified as ‘administrative’ by the HoC, and thus considered weak. The risk controls that fell into this ‘administrative’ category included training, standardising processes and procedures, and changing the design and organisation of care. Since other evidence shows these approaches can sometimes be very successful in healthcare, it is probably a mistake to automatically assume they are weak. Completely eliminating reliance on human behaviour is very difficult in the healthcare context and would introduc

    The report shows that projected 3.4% per year average budget increases set out in the 2021 spending review have fallen – due to inflation and higher than anticipated pay awards – to 1.5%, which is unlikely to be enough to meet growing demands and deal with the aftermath of Covid in most services. At the same time long-term staff shortages are set to worsen due to below-inflation pay rises and the cost-of-living crisis. It finds that: Spending increases in schools is not enough to recover the pandemic-induced lost learning. Hospital spending is not enough to unwind Covid back

    Hospitals and care homes have not received a single penny of a £500m emergency fund promised by the government to prevent the NHS becoming overwhelmed this winter, the Guardian has learned. Ministers announced they were injecting the cash into the health and social care system last month, to help get thousands of medically fit patients out of hospital into either their own home or a care home as soon as possible in an effort to better prepare the NHS for the coming months. “At the moment, one of the key challenges is discharging patients from hospital into more appropriate care setti

    The UK continues to feel the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, both through its impact on the nation’s health, as well as the prolonged impact on the UK economy. Yet despite this, there isn’t enough attention on boosting population health, the NHS and social care to build resilience to future shocks and support economic recovery. For the 2022 REAL challenge lecture, Andy Haldane, Chief Executive of the RSA and former Chief Economist at the Bank of England, will explore the relationship between health and wealth. He will draw lessons from the pandemic and argue for a more ho

    The research follows the Topol Review (2019) recommendation to develop a healthcare workforce able and willing to use AI and robotics, and is part of Health Education England’s Digital, AI and Robotics Technologies in Education (DART-Ed) programme to understand the impact of advances of these technologies on the workforce’s education and training requirements. Supporting healthcare workers to feel confident in identifying when and how to use AI is a main objective of the NHS AI Lab, and a key component of its vision for the safe, effective, and ethical adoption of AI technologies across health

    Key points The health and social care system is gridlocked. People are struggling to access care. Inequalities pervade and persist. The quality of maternity care is not good enough. The care for people with a learning disability and autistic people is still not good enough. Mental health services are struggling to meet the needs of children and young people. Ongoing problems with the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards process. Depleted workforce. Challenges and opportunities in local systems.

    Jeremy Hunt believes spending on the NHS will have to rise and that the increase should be funded through higher taxation. Mr Hunt was speaking at an event less than 48 hours before the prime minister asked him to replace Kwasi Kwarteng as chancellor. In a discussion last Wednesday evening with HSJ editor Alastair McLellan and the audience at an event held as part of the Shoreham Literary Festival event, Mr Hunt also rejected the introduction of a social insurance model to fund the NHS and re-iterated the pressing need for the NHS to have a long-term workforce plan.

    Tommy Jessop is an actor and campaigner who wants to use his voice to make sure people with a learning disability are heard. He's known to millions for his role as Terry Boyle on the UK TV series Line of Duty.

    Population health is an increasingly clear and important priority for the health and care system and is key in addressing health inequalities. This is clear in the NHS Long Term Plan, in the 2022 Health and Care Act, and in the current and likely future policy landscape. A population health-led approach to health and care aims to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across an entire population. Whether you’re working in an integrated care system (ICS), primary care network, a national body, community group, or you’re someone wi

    Rocco Friebel and Laia Maynou examined the prevalence of five avoidable in-hospital patient safety incidents (adverse drug reactions, hospital-acquired infections, pressure ulcers, postoperative pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis, and postoperative sepsis) for four developmental disability groups (people with intellectual disability, chromosomal abnormalities, pervasive developmental disorders, and congenital malformation syndrome) in the NHS during the period April 2017–March 2019. The authors found that the likelihood of experiencing harm in disability groups was up to 2.7-fold
