    One of the NHS’s biggest hospital trusts has declared its cancer waiting list is now at an ‘unmanageable size’. Mid and South Essex Foundation Trust leaders set out the stark judgement in a paper for its July board meeting, held last week. The report said: “The 62-day [referral to treatment backlog as of 3 July] has increased for the second consecutive week to 1,055. “[The cancer patient tracking list] is getting bigger and has reached an unmanageable size. Referral rates have plateaued from March 2021 [but] treatment rates have not increased in line with PTL growth. “This

    More men are dying from melanoma skin cancer than women in the UK, Cancer Research UK is warning as the country's heatwave continues. Rates of the cancer, which can develop in sun-damaged skin, have been rising in both men and women in recent years. Late diagnosis may be part of the reason why men are faring worse. Melanoma is treatable if it is diagnosed early - the charity is urging people to take care in the sun and get any unusual skin changes checked. Melanoma death rates have improved for women in the last 10 years, but not for men. Michelle Mitchell, chief execu

    The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront health inequalities relating to the colour of a patient’s skin. However, this is not a new issue and patients have always faced barriers in healthcare due to the colour of their skin. Impacting factors can include explicit racial bias, which includes discrimination and prejudice; implicit racial bias; missing data; lack of trust; and reduced access.[1] These can lead to misdiagnoses and delays in treatment, which can ultimately cause harm and preventable death. Dangerous gaps in training Medical training has, to date, primarily centre

    A private company carrying out dermatology services has had its contract suspended by the NHS over concerns about patients safety. DMC Healthcare ran the service which oversaw the care of almost 2,000 patients in north Kent and Medway for more than a year. NHS bosses says those patients may have been harmed and the contract was suspended in June. A helpline has been set up to ensure affected patients are seen by GPs and follow-up treatment can be arranged. Paula Wilkins, Chief Nurse at Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said: "In mid-June we suspended most of DMC's de

    Google has unveiled a tool that uses artificial intelligence to help spot skin, hair and nail conditions, based on images uploaded by patients. A trial of the "dermatology assist tool", unveiled at the tech giant's annual developer conference, Google IO, should launch later this year, it said. The app has been awarded a CE mark for use as a medical tool in Europe. A cancer expert said AI advances could enable doctors to provide more tailored treatment to patients. The AI can recognise 288 skin conditions but is not designed to be a substitute for medical diagnosis and treat

    This review examined 21 sets of data on skin lesions, including more than 100,000 images. The findings of the review highlighted that many of the datasets were missing important information, such as how images were chosen to be included and evidence of ethical approval or patient consent. 14 of 21 datasets gave information on which country they came from and, of those, nine contained images from European countries. The review notes that only a small percentage of images were accompanied by information about the patients’ skin colour or ethnicity. Among pictures where skin colour was

    One in four people in England and Wales see their GP about a dermatological condition, such as eczema, psoriasis or skin cancer, every year. This leads to more than 3.5 million outpatient and day surgery appointments annually. The GIRFT dermatology report makes 23 recommendations to help patients get faster and more equal access to care, including addressing the dermatology workforce shortage. You will need a FutureNHS account to view this report, or you can watch a short video summary which includes key recommendations.

    At least 18 serious cases are being investigated by NHS bosses after GP and dermatology services were stripped from private medical company. The Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) confirmed on Monday an independent review was taking place. It will see if delays to treatment for thousands of patients using DMC Healthcare services "caused harm". The NHS removed contracts worth £4.1m a year from the private firm in July. DMC was responsible for nearly 60,000 patients at nine surgeries in Medway, and skin condition services in other parts of Kent, the Local Democracy

    Artificial intelligence (AI) systems being developed to diagnose skin cancer run the risk of being less accurate for people with dark skin, research suggests. The potential of AI has led to developments in healthcare, with some studies suggesting image recognition technology based on machine learning algorithms can classify skin cancers as successfully as human experts. NHS trusts have begun exploring AI to help dermatologists triage patients with skin lesions. But researchers say more needs to be done to ensure the technology benefits all patients, after finding that few freely avai

    A website is helping healthcare professionals and the public recognise whether a rash could be a sign of COVID-19. The covidskinsigns site carries more than 400 images of rashes collected via the COVID Symptom Study app, which was set up during the first wave of the pandemic to gather information from the public about the signs and symptoms of virus. According to the British Association of Dermatologists, which developed the website, the most common skin rashes are urticaria (a hive-like rash), a ‘prickly heat’ or chickenpox-type rash, and redness that looks like chilblains on the fi
