    Patients seeking treatment for mental health problems at hospital emergency departments in England were twice as likely to experience "unacceptable" waiting times of 12 hours or more than other patients, according to a service review. The Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) described its findings as "unacceptable" and said the system frequently failed who were most unwell and vulnerable, particularly children and young people. The report, Mental Health and Emergency Care, is the latest in the RCEM's acute insight series summarising important issues in emergency care and making

    Recommendations To improve the experiences and outcomes of patients with mental health needs in accessing urgent and emergency care (UEC), change needs to be instigated at three distinct levels of policy and decision making: by the UK Government, NHS England, and by Integrated Care Systems. For the UK Government and devolved administrations: Significantly increase adult, children, and young people Mental Health bed capacity in NHS Trusts. Provide funding to expand the provision of Children and Adolescent Mental Health services, ensuring they are available 24 hours a day,

    A private hospital has been rated ‘inadequate’ by a health watchdog following an inspection prompted by a young patient’s preventable death. Woodbourne Priory Hospital, in Edgbaston, has had its overall Care Quality Commission rating downgraded from “good” to “inadequate” after inspectors visited in May. The regulator’s visit was sparked by a prevention of future deaths report into the death of Birmingham University graduate Matthew Caseby, 23, who was placed at the hospital as an NHS-funded patient in September 2020. Mr Caseby had been detained under the Mental Health Act but m

    No patient data held by mental health trusts was taken following a cyber attack this summer, NHS England has confirmed. The regulator told HSJ it had received confirmation from tech firm Advanced, which was the subject of a cyber attack in July, that no data had been breached on its Carenotes electronic patient record. The EPR is used by around a dozen mental health trusts. The process of reconnecting trusts fully back to Carenotes also started this week, after providers spent two months with limited or no access to their EPR. HSJ previously revealed that senior NHS chiefs feare

    For the first time, a US government-backed expert panel has recommended that adults under 65 should be screened for anxiety disorders. The influential US Preventive Services Task force also said that all adults should be checked for depression, consistent with past guidance. The change follows widespread warnings from experts on the mental health toll of the Covid-19 pandemic. The task force stopped short of a screening recommendation for suicide. The panel acknowledged that suicide is a leading cause of death among American adults but said there was "not enough evidence on

    The most common reasons why people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are admitted to hospital with greater frequency than the general population are changing, with hospitalisation for traditional diabetes complications now being accompanied by admissions for a diverse range of lesser-known complications including infections (i.e., pneumonia, sepsis), mental health disorders, and gastrointestinal conditions, according to an analysis of national data from Australia spanning seven years. The findings, being presented at this year's European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Annual Meeti

    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 NHS is trialling a fleet of electric vehicles to help relieve pressure on ambulance services while also helping the NHS cut its carbon footprint. The vehicles are part of a £2.1m investment as the NHS becomes the first health service in the world to commit to reaching net zero by 2040, said NHS England, with eight ambulance trusts trialling 21 zero-emission vehicles of various types. Six of these new green vehicles are "dedicated to mental health response in the community", NHS England said. It emphasised that it hoped this development will "cut emergency response times for peopl

    The final guideline mirrors the draft guidance in advising that self-harming patients, when treated in primary care, must receive: regular follow-up appointments regular reviews of self-harm behaviour a regular medicines review. The guidance also said: After an episode of self-harm, the format and frequency of initial aftercare and which services will be involved must be discussed with the patient. If the psychosocial assessment after a self-harm episode was made by a GP, initial aftercare must be provided by the GP within 48 hours of the assessment.

    The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic increase in the percentage of adults showing moderate or severe symptoms of depression. The Office for National Statistics said that over 16% of adults were affected in 2020 – compared with around 10% in 2019. Those affected were more likely to feel stressed or anxious and worried about their future than in 2019. Many of these people will need support and treatment from the NHS – and may not have sought it during the pandemic. In addition, financial pressures over the coming years may lead to more cases of depression. Some will seek help f

    Key points Inequalities in Covid-19 mortality persist with mortality rates three to four times higher in the most deprived areas. However, the overall number of Covid-19 deaths is now significantly lower than it was during the first year of the pandemic. The vaccination programme has been key to reducing Covid-19 mortality rates, but for some groups uptake is still low, especially for people living in poorer areas and people from some minority ethnic groups. The significant deterioration in mental health during the first year of the pandemic has been reversing but has not en

    A coroner has expressed concern at the difficulty of getting face-to-face appointments with GPs and other health professionals after a 17-year-old boy suffering from mental health problems was found dead. Sean Mark, who described himself as an “anxious paranoid mess”, was desperate for help but felt “palmed off” when he asked for assistance, an inquest heard. He was found dead in his bedroom four months after a phone consultation with a GP and before he had spoken to anyone in person about his concerns. The area coroner, Rosamund Rhodes-Kemp, recorded a verdict of death by misadventu

    Some of the country’s leading acute hospitals are not meeting a key NHS standard for mental health support in emergency departments, HSJ research suggests, with some regions faring better than others. Latest official estimates indicate that more than a third of EDs (36 per cent) are not yet meeting ‘core 24’ standards for psychiatric liaison – which requires a minimum of 1.5 full-time equivalent consultants and 11 mental health practitioners. The long-term plan target is for 70 per cent of acute trust emergency departments to have the optimum ‘core 24’ standard service by 2023-24. Th
