    Health and care sector workers in England who decline to be fully vaccinated could be moved to back-office roles, a UK government minister has suggested, as a consultation on plans to mandate COVID-19 and flu vaccinations was launched. The six-week consultation process will take views on whether vaccine requirements should apply for health and wider social care workers – those in contact with patients and people receiving care. It would mean only those who are fully vaccinated, unless medically exempt, could be deployed to deliver health and care services. Speaking on Times Radi

Four features distinguish top performing countries from the United States: they provide for universal coverage and remove cost barriers they invest in primary care systems to ensure that high-value services are equitably available in

    Providers fear 'fragmentation' of specialised services as NHS England begins delegating specialised services budgets to integrated care systems under reform plans. One leader of a specialist trust told HSJ: “There is a real risk of fragmentation. You can already see some of the conversations around various services around how people want to keep patients within their own ICS. There is the potential there for systems to buck the trend of centralising specialist services. Rather than bringing expertise and quality together, systems looking after budgets will look to set up their own special

    In 2020, 4,561 deaths related to drug poisoning were registered in England and Wales (equivalent to a rate of 79.5 deaths per million people); this is 3.8% higher than the number of deaths registered in 2019 (4,393 deaths; 76.7 deaths per million). A worrying statistic, which the Transform Drugs Policy Foundation describes as #50YearsOfFailure: "For over 50 years, the war on drugs has caused injustice, suffering and tragedy to communities across the world. It's time to bring it to an end." In summary there were a record 2996 drug-related deaths in 2020: opioid deaths up 4.

    Anchor institutions are large organisations, connected to their local area, that can use their assets and resources to benefit the communities around them. Health and care organisations, as well as providing healthcare services, are well-placed to use their influence and resources to improve the social determinants of health, health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. This King's Fund event will explore what anchor institutions are, what they look like in practice and how we can embed some of those ways of working within health and care. We will look at how health and care organisati

    On 6th July the government published a new Health and Care bill detailing new proposals and a package of reforms to the UK health and care system. However, the bill does not make ministers accountable for NHS workforce planning. The Royal College of Nursing has long campaigned for ministers to be legally accountable. RCN Acting General Secretary & Chief Executive Pat Cullen has said "“Ducking the question of workforce accountability will also make it even harder for the government to deliver on the pledge of 50,000 more nurses – vital for the delivery of safe care to patients.”

    Sajid Javid MP enters his new role as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in an extremely challenging set of circumstances. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have a major impact on the delivery of health and social care services across the country, while also creating a range of longer-term challenges as we transition back to ‘normal’, such as the growing backlog of patients waiting for non-Covid care and treatment.[1] Like his predecessors, he will also face the huge task of tackling the persistent problem of avoidable harm in health and social care.

    NHS staff will now be able to request flexible working arrangements from the first day in post. Previously, staff had to be in service for at least 6 months before they could put in a request. It has been found a lack of work-life balance was a significant cause of why staff left the healthcare service. The new rule will come into effect on 13 September 2021 and staff will be allowed to make an unlimited number of flexible working applications and submit them without justification or provide specific reasons.

    The traditional approach towards health and disease was, until recent decades, the medical or biological model where a patient’s illness was treated solely by medical means.[1] However, research has challenged this approach and developed a more extensive model of health that incorporates psychological and social factors. This allows for better treatment, management and understanding of health and disease. The Biopsychosocial Model was proposed by Engel in 1977. It implies that biological, psychological and social factors all play a significant role in health and disease and may influence

    New research shows a rise in sharps injuries among healthcare workers around Europe over the last year. Respondents of the research said the rise in sharps injuries may be due to staff shortages and higher pressures and stress on healthcare staff. The survey, which covered more than 300,000 healthcare workers, found workers were being put at unnecessary risk of contracting deadly diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, with nurses being the ones primarily affected by the sharps injuries. The article concludes that more interventions need to be done to protect healthc

    The World Health Organisation has said cuts to the UK budget may put millions of lives at risk of dying from "neglected tropical diseases", leaving some of the poorest people in the world exposed. The diseases listed included elephantiasis, trachoma and Guinea Worm. According to the WHO, the UK was able to provide funding to at least 19 countries before the aid cut.
