    A review into the work of a locum consultant radiologist has so far identified "major discrepancies" affecting 12 cases. A full lookback review of 13,030 radiology images was launched last month. The doctor worked at hospitals run by the Northern Health Trust between July 2019 and February 2020. The review steering group chair said it was "images in levels one and two that we are most concerned about". "To date there are 12 level ones and twos [approximately 0.5% of the total number reviewed]," said Dr Seamus O'Reilly, the Northern Trust medical director. "Most of thes

    The boss of a NHS trust that asked hospital staff for fingerprints and handwriting samples as it hunted a whistleblower is stepping down. Dr Stephen Dunn will leave West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust in the summer after seven years as chief executive. An independent inquiry into the way management handled the affair is expected to report in the autumn. In 2018, Jon Warby received a letter two months after the death of his wife, Susan. It claimed mistakes were made during her bowel surgery. An inquest into her death was subsequently told how she had been given glucose instead of s

    In the two weeks before his death Robbie was seen seven times by five different GPs. The child was seen by three different GPs four times in the last three days when he was so weak and dehydrated he was bedbound and unable to stand unassisted. Only one GP read the medical records, six days before death, and was aware of the suspicion of Addison's disease, the need for the ACTH test and the instruction to immediately admit the child back to hospital if he became unwell. The GP informed the Powells that he would refer Robbie back to hospital immediately that day but did not inform them that

    HSIB reviewed the NHS national reporting systems to understand how often the wrong patient receives the wrong procedure. It launched this national investigation because the evidence found suggests that incorrect identification of patients is a contributory factor to patients receiving the wrong procedure. Safety recommendation HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement leads a review of risks relating to patient identification in outpatient settings, working with partners to engage clinical and human factors expertise. This should assess the feasibility to enhance or imple

    The Care Quality Commission may in future be notified when ‘secretive’ external reviews have looked at patient safety issues within trusts. Last summer, HSJ revealed guidance for trusts to publish summaries of royal colleges’ reviews was being widely ignored, with some even failing to inform the CQC. A recent BBC Panorama programme has again raised the issue, with Academy of Medical Royal Colleges chair Helen Stokes-Lampard saying she was “dismayed” the body’s guidance was not being followed. But she has now told HSJ of “advanced discussions” with the CQC about changes which wou

    A second “mutilated” patient left with life-changing injuries after botched hospital surgery has described how she was left in urine-soaked bed sheets for days by nurses who called her lazy when she was unable to get out of bed. Lucy Wilson told The Independent she believes she would have been better looked after at a veterinary practice compared to the level of care she received from nurses at Norfolk and Norwich Hospital Trust in January last year. She was one of three patients harmed by surgeon Camilo Valero in the same week and almost died after Dr Valero and other staff failed t

    A woman has died after being "dropped" on the floor during surgery on her hip, which she had broken while in hospital. Jeannette Shields, 70, had been receiving treatment for gall stones in Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Trust said an investigation was under way "in relation to an incident involving a patient in one of our theatres". Mrs Shields' husband, John, said he told the hospital he would not be "pushing this thing under the carpet".

    Serious patient safety concerns have been raised about a third major specialty at a struggling acute trust, with inspectors also flagging wider leadership issues. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has issued an immediate warning notice in relation to the stroke service at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust, following an inspection earlier this month. A full report will be published later this year, but the immediate issues have been outlined within various documents published ahead of the trust’s board meeting on 26 May. According to a summary within the pape

    “Human error” resulted in a man having the wrong leg amputated at a major Austrian hospital. The error occurred when a healthcare employee marked the wrong leg for amputation during pre-surgical procedures. The mistake was not noticed anytime during the surgery, or even during the immediate postoperative period. It was recognised during a routine wound dressing change, about 48 hours postoperatively. “A disastrous combination of circumstances led to the patient’s right leg being amputated instead of his left,” the hospital’s statement said. “We would also like to affirm that we wi

    The health secretary will face questions about compensation for victims of the contaminated blood scandal on Friday afternoon. Matt Hancock will give evidence at a public inquiry into what's been called the worst NHS treatment disaster. Around 3,000 people have died after being given blood containing HIV and hepatitis C in the 1970s and 1980s. Ministers announced a public inquiry into the scandal in 2017 after decades of campaigning by victims and their families. Nearly 5,000 people with the blood disorder haemophilia were infected with potentially fatal viruses after being given a c
