    Is it time to change the way England's healthcare system is funded? Is the English system in need of radical structural change at the top? I've been prompted to think about this by the article about the German public health system on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-62986347.amp There are no quick fixes, however we all need to look at this closely. I believe that really 'modernising' / 'transforming' our health & #socialcare systems could 'save the #NHS'. Both for #patients through improved safety, efficiency & accountability, and by making the #NHS

    The four-hour emergency care target is “not the right answer” long term, but services have been left “in limbo” by Therese Coffey’s promise that it will no longer be scrapped, the president of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine has said. Katherine Henderson said RCEM was “delighted” there could be more focus on the four-hour target in the short term following the health and social care secretary’s surprise comment last week, as emergency care has been “in a performance policy vacuum since before the pandemic”. But Dr Henderson said that in the long term there should be performan

    The Independent Healthcare Providers Network (IHPN) have today launched a “refresh” of its Medical Practitioners Assurance Framework (MPAF), designed to further improve the safety and quality of care independent providers deliver to patients. Initially launched in October 2019, the MPAF – led by former National NHS Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh – contains key principles to strengthen and build upon the medical governance systems already in place in the sector and sets out expected practice in a number of key areas. Care Quality Commission (CQC) now uses the framework’s principles

    Staff at the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have been left ‘in fear of speaking out’ against structural changes to the organisation which they believe ‘pose a significant risk’ to the CQC’s ability to regulate health services, trade unions have told the health and social care secretary. A letter signed by senior officers of Unison, Royal College of Nursing, Unite, Prospect and the Public and Commercial Services union has called on Therese Coffey to urge the CQC to pause its organisational change and enter into “meaningful discussions” with the unions. The unions have raised concerns t

    Tinkering around the edges, the King's Fund said. A few short-term fixes, according to the Health Foundation. And a plan that will have minimal impact, the Royal College of GPs added. These were just a handful of the reactions from those involved with the NHS. And they were not even from organisations usually at the front of the queue when it comes to criticising government policies. So why has Therese Coffey's first announcement as Health Secretary for England received such a negative response? The fact is the problems the health and care system are facing are deep-rooted. Much

    Ministers are setting up a £500m emergency fund to get thousands of medically fit patients out of hospital as soon as possible in an attempt to prevent the NHS becoming overwhelmed this winter. Thérèse Coffey, the new health secretary, unveiled the move in the Commons on Thursday as part of her plans to tackle the growing crisis in the health service, especially patients’ long delays for care. The newly created adult social care discharge fund is intended to relieve the pressure on overstretched hospitals in England by ensuring that patients whom doctors have judged well enough to le

    Therese Coffey has pledged there will be no changes to the four-hour target for A&E waiting times – despite NHS England’s prolonged bid to axe the controversial measure. The new health and social care secretary told the House of Commons Thursday: “I can absolutely say there will be no changes to the target for four-hour waits in A&E.” Ms Coffey’s comments appear to represent a major blow to NHS England, which has since 2019 been pushing for a new bundle of metrics to replace the target. Fourteen trusts have been trialling these, which include measures such as average tim

    "Patients are my top priority. Purposefully, this plan is ‘Our plan for patients’. The NHS has rightly been recognised with the award of the George Cross and the admiration of the British people, particularly for getting us through COVID-19. Most of the time, patients have a great experience, but we will not paper over the problems that we face. Some of our challenges have been exacerbated by the pandemic, and we expect backlogs to rise before they fall as more patients come forward for diagnosis and treatment. As we face these immense challenges, I am determined to be the champ

    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.

    Protesters took to the pavement outside the White House on 19 September to demand a better deal for people affected by Long Covid, complaining that the Biden administration’s plans fell short on action and funding. “The pandemic is over,” President Joe Biden declared the night before in a pre-recorded interview which aired on the news magazine 60 Minutes. “We still have a problem with covid,” he said. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And, so, I think it’s changing.” But

    NHS and social care services are under extreme pressure. There have been record delays for people waiting for ambulances and treatment in hospital. To provide ongoing support to services managing the current challenges, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have published a new online resource for system leaders and service providers. PEOPLE FIRST presents suggested actions for individual services and the wider system to help: make the best use of resources build capacity ensure safety remains a priority. Developed by CQC's National Emergency Medicine Specialist Adv

    Therese Coffey is considering abolishing four-hour A&E waiting time targets as part of her “emergency plan” to tackle the NHS. The new health secretary is understood to be looking at a range of measures to address the growing crisis in the NHS, understood to be announced next Thursday. But a source close to the discussions told The Independent getting rid of the four-hour waits – first suggested in March 2019 – would have to be given the green light by the new prime minister Liz Truss. The announcement will focus on the health secretary’s “ABCD” priorities – standing for “am

    Many people roll their eyes at me when I start talking about 'Joy in Work'. Yes, I get it, how can you have joy in work when it’s sometimes hard to even get through a shift without your stress levels going through the roof? The term Joy in Work has gained traction over recent years, However, if you don’t like the term (which many people in the UK don’t), think instead about it as a way of improving patient care and reducing the stress and frustrations which you and other members of your team encounter at work on a daily basis. Why is Joy in Work important? Research tells us

    The World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the surgical safety checklist in 2009 after a successful trial in eight pilot countries; the term ‘Never Event’ has been in existence since 2001.[1] NHS England defines a Never Event as; “Serious incidents that are entirely preventable because guidance of safety recommendations providing strong systematic barriers are available at a national level and should have been implemented by all healthcare providers.” The current list of Never Events still only classes three reportable intra-operative ‘Never Events’: wrong site surgery, wrong imp

    "I’d like to see health care make a significant effort to identify which processes are universally critical to the delivery of care and develop uniform standards — not just here in Massachusetts but across the country. That is why I think the Betsy Lehman Center and the Massachusetts Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors are so important. I wish every state had similar groups. A national coalition of these groups could join together and start doing this very important work." "I’m convinced we can drive unnecessary variation out of health care, but it will take leadership to help
