    Children’s doctors plan to help poor families cope with the cost of living crisis and its feared impact on health, amid concern that cold homes this winter will lead to serious ill health. In an unusual move, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) is issuing the UK’s paediatricians with detailed advice on how they can help households in poverty. It has drawn up a series of resources, including advice for doctors treating children to use appointments to talk sensitively to their parents about issues that can have a big impact on their offspring’s health. These inclu

    Key messages Service planning and commissioning of integrated care Formalisation of the service planning and commissioning of LTV services through an integrated network of care providers is required. The aim would be to reduce variability in access to areas such as therapy services in and out of hospital, facilitate discharge, enable respite care and simplify how ventilator equipment is purchased and serviced. Multidisciplinary care Improved access to an appropriate multidisciplinary care team is needed to ensure people on LTV and their parent carers can be supported in the commun

    Coroner's concerns Whilst at King’s College Hospital, Martha was not referred to the paediatric intensivists promptly. If she had been referred promptly and had been appropriately treated, the likelihood is that she would have survived her injuries. The bedside paediatric early warning score (BPEWS) system at King’s is currently still paper based, unlike the adult system. It was put to the coroner very forcefully by medical staff that, until the PEWS system moves to an electronic base as part of electronic recording of the paediatric records as a whole, monitoring and care of child

    HSIB was notified about potential patient safety issues by Sarah, who was concerned about the care she had received when her babies were delivered. The investigation used interviews, observations of the maternity unit and reviews of guidelines and organisational documents in order to understand the system-wide factors that contributed to Sarah’s experience and the decisions made by staff. The evidence suggested that the process of decision making in the context of Sarah’s care was relevant to this investigation, so the investigation has summarised the key factors that appear to have influenced

    More than a million people – including hundreds of thousands of children – are on an unpublished national waiting list for community health services, according to NHS England documents leaked to HSJ. They reveal that just over 75,000 children are waiting to access community paediatric services, including children needing help with developmental delay, long-term health conditions and additional needs; and there is a backlog of more than 74,300 young people for speech and language therapy. More than 321,000 adults are on the list waiting for musculoskeletal services, mostly physiothera

    Key findings From a public health perspective, it is possible that neonatal illness contributes to 72% of all deaths under 10 years of age. Children who received additional care after birth (neonatal care) made up 83% of children who died before their 1st birthday, 38% of deaths in the next 4 years, and 27% of deaths between the ages of 5 and 9. For babies born alive, at or after 22 weeks gestation, who subsequently died before 10 years of age between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2021, half of the deaths occurred in children over one month old. There is a clear associat

    It’s amazing how far we’ve come with medical advancements in neonatal intensive care (NICU) and special care settings over the past decade. Unfortunately, involving families in the care of their infants in NICU does not seem to have progressed at the same pace, despite evidence showing how important this is for the health and wellbeing of premature babies and their families. Changes have started to evolve more rapidly nationally since the Neonatal Critical Care Review and through the integration of family care co-ordinators, but it’s still vital that we keep discussing this model of care

    Three intensive care units for children are not meeting standards for co-located services, a national report has found. Royal Stoke University Hospital, Royal Brompton Hospital in London and Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, which all have “level three” paediatric intensive care beds for the most seriously ill patients, do not offer specialised paediatric surgery, according to a report from NHS England’s Getting it Right First Time (GIRFT) programme. The report, released in April, said specialised paediatric surgery “should be co-located on the same site” as a paediatric intensive care

    Recommendations 1. Medical and psychiatric ward staff need to be aware that patients with eating disorders being admitted to a medical or paediatric ward may be at high risk despite appearing well and having normal blood parameters. 2. The role of the primary care team is to monitor patients with eating disorders, refer them early and provide monitoring after discharge, in collaboration with medical services and EDSs (including community EDSs). Eating disorders are covered, in England, by the term severe mental illness and physical checks in primary care should be performed, even if u

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is attempting to ban race-based medical guidance which the organisation attributes to long-standing inequities in healthcare. In a statement on Monday, the AAP said: “Race is a historically-derived social construct that has no place as a biologic proxy. Over the years, the medical field has inaccurately applied race correction or race adjustment factors in its work, resulting in differential approaches to disease management and disparate clinical outcomes.” “Although it will continue to be important to collect clinical data disaggregated by race and

    A 14-year-old autistic girl was unlawfully detained in hospital and restrained in front of scared young patients, a high court judge has found. On one occasion last month the teenager managed to break into a treatment room where a dying infant was receiving palliative care. She was restrained there by three security guards, Mr Justice MacDonald said in a judgment in the family court that ordered Manchester city council (MCC) to find the girl a suitable community care placement instead of what he described as the “brutal and abusive” and “manifestly unsuitable” hospital environment.
