    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

    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

    Several patients awaiting treatment on the Welsh NHS have turned to surgery abroad as waiting lists hit record levels again. Waiting lists hit a record of almost 750,000 in July prompting surgeons to demand "urgent action". The Welsh government said waits of more than two years were improving. Health Minister Eluned Morgan said there were "signs of hope" that a target for no-one to wait more than a year for their first outpatient appointment could be hit by the end of 2022. But the Conservatives accused Labour ministers of having "little strategy" to tackle "extraordinary w

    An integrated care system which has some of England’s worst waiting times for emergency care lacks “delivery structure and processes” to make desperately needed improvements, according to an external report. Research by consultancy Prism into the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly integrated care system (ICS) concluded it had “unclear governance” for management and recovery of urgent and emergency care, with “multiple disconnected structures in place to manage tactical and strategic recovery of performance”. The report comes as the ICS grapples with record waits for emergency care, with st

    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.

    One in four people could be left without a GP within a decade, medics say. The forecasts from Doctors’ Association UK suggest 16 million people in England could be left without access to a family doctor, amid growing staffing shortages. Today the new Health Secretary is expected to set out plans to boost access to GPs, following warnings that public satisfaction is the lowest on record. Research by the Health Foundation suggests that the NHS will lose up to 8,800 full-time equivalent GPs by 2030 if current trends continue. On Wednesday, Doctors’ Association UK said this could le

    The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has urged system leaders to move away from “quick fixes” to the “enormous gap in resources and capacity” in urgent and emergency care. A report by the CQC and a large group of emergency clinicians and other health and care leaders calls for a ”move away from reactive ‘quick fixes’ such as tents in the car park or corridor care to proactive long-term solutions and to address the enormous gap in resources and capacity”. The use of tents and treating more patients in corridors have been increasingly adopted by hospitals in recent months, sometimes encou

    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

    Performance on waiting times targets at Scotland's hospital A&E units has hit a new low. Figures for the week ending 11 September showed just 63.5% of patients were dealt with within four hours. Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said the figures were "not acceptable" and he was determined to improve performance. Scottish Tory health spokesman Dr Sandesh Gulhane said the figures showed the "crisis in A&E is not merely continuing, but deepening". The Scottish government target is that 95% of patients attending A&E are seen and subsequently admitted or discharged withi

    More than half of maternity units in England fail consistently to meet safety standards, BBC analysis of official statistics shows. Health regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rates 7% of units as posing a high risk of avoidable harm. A further 48% require improvement. The figures are slightly worse than a few years ago, despite several attempts to transform maternity care. The regulator says the pace of improvement has been disappointing. In most cases, pregnancy and birth are a positive and safe experience for women and their families, says the CQC. But when things

    NHS England has issued a new deadline to treat patients who have been waiting more than two years for treatment, a month after saying it had ‘virtually eliminated’ the longest waits, it has emerged. The goal of no-one waiting more than 104 weeks for treatment by July this year was one of the first milestones in the elective recovery plan hammered out between NHSE and ministers. They were not eliminated by the end of July, but the number was reduced to 3,000, having stood at 22,000 in January. The remaining group consisted of nearly 1,600 patients who had been offered faster trea
