    Two years after having Covid-19, diagnoses of brain fog, dementia and epilepsy are more common than after other respiratory infections, a study by the University of Oxford suggests. But anxiety and depression are no more likely in adults or children two years on, the research found. More research is needed to understand how and why Covid could lead to other conditions. This study looked at the risks of 14 different disorders in 1.25 million patients two years on from Covid, mostly in the US. It then compared them with a closely-matched group of 1.25 million people who had a diff

    Call for action The report calls on the UK Government, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive to prioritise services for people with neurological conditions and establish a Neuro Taskforce. The Taskforce would bring together relevant departments, health and social care bodies, professional bodies, people affected by neurological conditions and the voluntary sector to: Assess the current neuroscience workforce and set out plans to ensure it is fit for the future. Share approaches to common problems, such as addressing longstanding barriers to acce

    Systems and processes in place around patient safety failed in terms of the work of a Belfast-based neurologist, an inquiry has found. Dr Michael Watt was at the centre of Northern Ireland’s largest ever recall of patients, which began in 2018, after concerns were raised about his clinical work. More than 4,000 of his former patients attended recall appointments. Almost a fifth of patients who attended recall appointments were found to have received an “insecure diagnosis”. The final report following the Independent Neurology Inquiry found that problems with Dr Watt’s pract

    Key conclusions include: The Belfast Trust should have intervened earlier, but failed to do so. Systems and processes in place to assure the public about patient safety prior to November 2016 failed. The effect of numerous failures ensured problems were missed for many years and opportunities to intervene were lost. Failures not confined to Belfast Trust - information was contained in silos with communications between different organisations and management levels poor and inadequate.

    Suspended Belfast neurologist Michael Watt has offered his "sincere sympathy" to those affected by Northern Ireland's biggest patient recall. Dr Michael Watt worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital as a neurologist diagnosing conditions like epilepsy and Parkinson's Disease. He was suspended after 3,000 patients were given recall appointments last year. Dr Watt said he recognised the "distress these events have caused". On Tuesday, a BBC Spotlight investigation found that he had carried out hundreds of unnecessary procedures on patients. The programme also obtained details of

    Neurology deals with disorders of the nervous system, which includes the brain, the nerves and muscles. Around 1 in 6 people in the UK have a neurological condition such as encephalitis, Parkinson's disease or migraine. The GIRFT neurology report is based on visits to 139 neurology units across England. Key recommendations include: Ensure all patients with acute neurological disorders can promptly access neurology services Develop care pathways for chronic neurological disorders Improve the outpatient referral process You will need a FutureNHS account to view this rep

    Babies are at risk of dying from common treatable infections because NHS staff on maternity wards are not following national guidance and are short-staffed and overworked, an investigation has revealed. The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB), a national safety watchdog, has warned that NHS staff on maternity wards face sometimes conflicting advice on treating women who are positive for a group B streptococcus (GBS) infection. They are also making errors in women’s care because of the pressure of work and a lack of staff, with antibiotics not being administered when they sh

    The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) published ‘Summary of themes arising from the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch maternity programme (April 2018-December 2019)’ in February 2020. This described eight themes for further exploration in order to highlight opportunities for system-wide learning; one of these themes was group B streptococcus (GBS). This report, Severe brain injury, early neonatal death and intrapartum stillbirth associated with group B streptococcus infection, highlights a number of patient safety concerns and recommends that maternity care providers sho

    Doctors who look after patients in a vegetative or minimally conscious state must ensure they initiate regular conversations with relatives about what is in the best interests of the person so that they do not get “lost in the system,” says new guidance. The Royal College of Physicians has published new and revised guidelines on prolonged disorders of consciousness (PDOC) to take into account changes in the law and developments in assessment and management.

    There are "deep concerns" for brain injury survivors after many reported losing rehabilitation services during the COVID-19 lockdown. A survey by the charity Headway found 57% of people, injured since 2018, had seen face-to-face services stopped. The first two years of recovery are crucial in regaining skills, such as talking, with fears this could affect future independence. The government acknowledged it had been "a challenging time". Headway conducted its survey across all brain injury rehab services, with 1,140 respondents. It found about 60% of those were frustrated by the

    Artificial intelligence can diagnose brain tumours more accurately than a pathologist in a tenth of the time, a study has shown. The machine-learning technology was marginally more accurate than a traditional diagnosis made by a pathologist, by just 1%, but the results were available in less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds, compared with 20 to 30 minutes by a pathologist. The study, published in Nature Medicine, demonstrates the speed and accuracy of AI diagnosis for brain surgery, allowing surgeons to detect and remove otherwise undetectable tumour tissue.

    An NHS trust has been urged to publish the full findings of an independent review of its services after it released a heavily redacted report. University Hospitals Sussex has refused to reveal the recommendations made after a review by the Royal College of Surgeons in 2019. A patients' group said the findings should be "in the public domain". The trust said the review of its neurosurgery department "did not highlight any safety concerns". The review was discovered as part of a BBC Panorama investigation into unpublished patient safety reports. A heavily edited report was re
