    Local public health systems have recently been tested to an unprecedented degree. The pandemic response since March 2020 has necessitated the scaling up of diagnostic and testing capacity, enhanced collaborative working across the health system and a rapidly assembled nationwide vaccination programme. This free online event from the King's Fund will provide an opportunity to share experiences and lessons from the public health response to the pandemic, including how local systems have mobilised and collaborated, the barriers faced by those designing and delivering services and prioritie

    A miniature radar system that tracks a person as they walk around their home could be used to measure the effectiveness of treatments for Parkinson’s. The disease, which affects about 145,000 people in the UK, is linked to the death of nerve cells in the brain that help to control movement. With no quick diagnostic test available at present, doctors must usually review a patient’s medical history and look for symptoms that often develop only very slowly, such as muscle stiffness and tremors. The device, about the size of a wi-fi router, is designed to give a more precise picture

    An artificial intelligence (AI) tool that scans eyes can accurately predict a person’s risk of heart disease in less than a minute, researchers say. The breakthrough could enable ophthalmologists and other health workers to carry out cardiovascular screening on the high street using a camera – without the need for blood tests or blood pressure checks – according to the world’s largest study of its kind. Researchers found AI-enabled imaging of the retina’s veins and arteries can specify the risk of cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular death and stroke. They say the results coul

    What needs to happen Above all we need to be honest with ourselves about the extent of the problems and the implications of the solutions. That requires an open and honest national conversation among politicians, patients and the public, healthcare professionals and policy makers, one which leads to action and meaningful change. What does a reformed system look like? A system fit for the twenty-first century must centre the needs of the whole person and of the whole population. This requires: Expanding workforce numbers Improving patient access to care across all settings.

    A medication error is defined as "any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the healthcare professional, patient, or consumer,” according to the National Coordinating Council for Medication Error Reporting and Prevention. An estimated 237 million medication errors occur in the NHS in England every year.[1] This number represents the sum of medication errors over all stages of the medication use process. Most errors occur during drug administration (54%), followed by prescribing (21%) and dispensi

    1 Blog - Inappropriate prescribing during a pandemic: dementia and antipsychotics A growing number of people with dementia who live in care homes are being prescribed antipsychotic medication, but there are serious questions about whether these drugs are being prescribed appropriately. In this blog, a family describes how their father with Alzheimer’s disease came to be prescribed antipsychotic medication at his care home. They raise concerns about the decision to prescribe antipsychotics when there were obvious non-drug based alternatives to pursue, the lack of involvement the family had

    Scientists have developed a virus-killing plastic that could make it harder for bugs, including Covid, to spread in hospitals and care homes. The team at Queen's University Belfast say their plastic film is cheap and could be fashioned into protective gear such as aprons. It works by reacting with light to release chemicals that break the virus. The study showed it could kill viruses by the million, even in tough species which linger on clothes and surfaces. The research was accelerated as part of the UK's response to the Covid pandemic. Studies had shown the Covid vir

    In 2020, the NHS became the first health system in the world to commit to reaching net zero , with two targets: Net zero by 2040 for the emissions the NHS controls directly. Net zero by 2045 for the emissions the NHS can influence. Since 2010, the NHS has reduced its emissions by 30%, thanks to steps taken across the workforce – but more transformation that continues to improve quality of patient care while also reducing carbon emissions is required in every setting. Developing technologies and investing in innovation now will accelerate action and ensure the best outcome

    When the new Royal Liverpool Hospital opens its doors in October, every patient will have a single room with an en-suite bathroom. That set-up is unusual for acute hospitals in England, but many feel it is the future for all new buildings. "There's the privacy and dignity from the patient's point of view," says Jacqui Stamper, the hospital's associate chief nurse. "If they're in the room and talking to the doctors or the nurses, there isn't somebody just the other side of a curtain listening." "And then there's the infection prevention side of it as well. "It's absolutely t
