    NICE will speed up patients’ access to the latest and most effective treatments, and dynamic guideline recommendations will be put in the hands of healthcare professionals more quickly under plans unveiled by NICE in its 5-year strategy launched on Monday (19 April 2021). NICE will transform key elements of its approach to ensure efficiency and speed while maintaining robust, trusted methods. The COVID-19 pandemic has reaffirmed the need to place science and evidence at the heart of health and care decision making and improve outcomes for all patients across the healthcare system.

    New powers given to the health secretary as part of proposed legislation could make local services unsafe, NHS Providers has warned the House of Commons health select committee. In a letter to committee chair Jeremy Hunt, seen exclusively by HSJ, the membership organisation said proposed new powers over local reconfiguration outlined in the government’s recent health white paper must include an “explicit” test that proves the intervention will not worsen patient safety. The letter, signed by Chris Hopson and Saffron Cordery, CEO and deputy CEO respectively of NHS Providers, said: “Gi

    Regulators have sent an improvement director into a North West acute trust amid multiple allegations of poor care and ‘cover up’ across different specialties. University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust, which spent 18 months in special measures midway through the last decade, is again now the subject of significant regulatory intervention from NHS England. The regulator has appointed Simon Bennett as a board-level improvement director, which comes after he undertook a similar assignment at the struggling Stockport FT. It comes amid ongoing external investigations int

    An NHS trust has been charged over the deaths of two patients. The Care Quality Commission alleges Natalie Billingham, 33, and Kaysie-Jane Bland were exposed to "significant risk of avoidable harm" at Dudley's Russells Hall Hospital. The regulator has brought the charges against Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust over two alleged breaches of the Health and Social Care Act. This relates to the trust's duty to ensure safe care and treatment. Read full story Source: BBC News, 6 April 2021

    This project was commissioned because of an issue with multiple medicines records being held by different agencies for local children with complex needs and at the end of life. The project was highly commended by NICE and a poster was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2015 (see poster below). This duplication of records was believed to be a major risk factor for medicines errors and a waste of clinical time. It also meant that parents needed to repeat information about their children’s medicines time and again, as they accessed services, including inpatient services, tertiary cen

    The NHS is to spend almost £100m to make maternity units across the NHS safer for mothers and babies in a major victory for families and The Independent – which has been campaigning for better training for midwives and doctors. NHS England announced the investment on Thursday in response to the care scandal at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust. As well as boosting the numbers of midwives and doctors on wards, NHS England said the money would include an extra £26.5m for safety training for midwives and doctors across England. The £96m represents one of the biggest investm

    Over the past year, COVID-19 has posed unprecedented challenges yet, with one in 10 patients still harmed whilst receiving clinical care in hospital, there has never been a more important time to ask how clinical leaders, healthcare systems, national governments and the international community must act to deliver effective solutions to the overlooked pandemic of patient safety. “The Overlooked Pandemic” features solutions from leaders including the WHO, OECD, ILO and IAEA plus leading representatives from NGOs and the clinical frontline. To mark the launch of the report, a discussion was

    A recent blog I wrote (see link below) brings together key information for clinicians, and especially for prescribers, from a variety of sources, including patients, relatives and carers. The aim is to help to prevent patients with autism and learning disabilities being harmed by inappropriate medicines. I began this in 2018 following the death of Oliver McGowan, which I cover in teaching for (non-medical) prescribing students and in my clinical education work. It links to the NHS Learning Disability Mortality (LeDeR) Review Programme. Key points: Most of the prescribing in thi

    A bid for more control over the NHS by ministers risks undermining patient safety and sowing confusion over who is ultimately responsible for services, MPs have been warned. The Commons Health Select Committee was told the proposals, set out in a new white paper published last month, lacked detail on the involvement of patients in local services and needed urgent clarification of the new powers the health secretary will have. The plans will give ministers new powers over the independent Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB), including being able to tell it what to investigate

    The Prime Minister recently announced a funding package worth £3.7 billion to build 40 hospitals by 2030 in the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. The Health Infrastructure Plan will also provide capital to modernise diagnostics and technology and help eradicate critical safety issues in the NHS. The scale of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused big shifts in the way hospitals deliver services. The NHS has had to mobilise to respond to the acute needs of people infected with the virus whilst at the same time scaling back non-COVID-19 healthcare. Servic

    There are many sources of variation in healthcare that can affect the flow of patients through care systems. Reducing and managing variation enables systems to become more predictable and easier to manage so allowing improvement of quality and safety. To effect successful service improvements, you need to understand the source of variation and use a range of tools to reduce and manage it. This pandemic has provoked the best of human compassion and solidarity, but those who manage our health systems still face extraordinary challenges responding to COVID-19. Looking beyond the crisis, our

    The NHS is set to miss a major national target to eliminate inappropriate out of area placements within mental health by the end of March, HSJ can reveal. At least eight of the 52 English NHS mental health trusts surveyed by HSJ are predicting they will miss the national deadline of getting rid of their inappropriate OAPs by the end of next month. The national target was one of the headline mental health pledges set out in 2014’s Five Year Forward View. The pledge was also in 2019’s long-term plan. Inappropriate OAPs refer to people being sent out of their region to an inpatien
