    Each NHS Trust and local pharmacies in Dorset have been promoting awareness and providing updates for staff and patients on medications without harm and medicines safety following World Patient Safety Day in September. On Monday 17 October we held a face-to-face event to share learning from medicines incidents and to specifically focus on the safety improvement programme to reduce harm from opiate drugs in our communities. This provided an excellent opportunity to network with other healthcare professionals. Speakers on the day were: Head of Medicines Improvement at NHS Dorset who

    Mothers are being offered water injections by the NHS to relieve pain during childbirth, while in some hospitals midwives are burning herbs to encourage breech babies to turn in the womb. Safety campaigners have dubbed the practices dangerous and say that they amount to “pseudoscience” being offered by the health service. They have called on the chief executive of NHS England, Amanda Pritchard, to ban their use in a letter published over the weekend. At least three trusts in England offer water injections for pain relief, including Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust, United Lincolns

    The study found that duration of surgery and epidural drug used were both significant risk factors of breakthrough pain during CS in this audit. A pro-active policy is required in order to prevent breakthrough pain or discomfort during CS. Early identification of problematic epidural catheters for labour analgesia, adequate level of anaesthetic block before surgery, and administration of a prophylactic epidural top-up if duration of surgery is prolonged as opposed to the choice of local anaesthetic used, could be essential in the prevention. Further high-quality studies are needed to evaluate

    Responding to a backlash from pain patients in the USA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released updated guidelines that offer clinicians more flexibility in the way they prescribe opioids for short- and long-term pain. The new recommendations eliminate numerical dose limits and caps on length of treatment for chronic pain patients that had been suggested in the landmark 2016 version of the agency’s advice, which was aimed at curbing the liberal use of the medication and controlling a rampaging opioid epidemic. Those guidelines cautioned doctors that commencing o

    Almost 90% of those living with Long Covid in Ireland have not returned to their pre-Covid level of health, according to a new report. The study of 988 participants was carried out by APC Microbiome Ireland, a research centre based at University College Cork (UCC), in conjunction with Cork University Hospital and Long Covid Advocacy Ireland. It found that more than two-thirds of participants in the study continued to experience fatigue, memory problems, chest pain, stomach upset, and muscle pain. Those surveyed also reported that they were suffering from new symptoms that had n

    Hysteroscopy Action says thousands of women are in extreme pain during and following the invasive procedures to treat problems in the womb, with many suffering for days. It says some are left with symptoms of post-traumatic stress and subsequently feel unable to have intimate relationships with partners. Others avoid important examinations such as smear tests. The group has written to Women’s Minister, Maria Caulfield, to raise its concerns. In its letter, it claims women are not always given the choice of intravenous sedation or general anaesthetic to reduce pain because of an

    More than two-fifths of people in Britain suffer from some form of chronic pain by the time they are in their mid-40s, research suggests. Scientists have found that persistent bodily pain at this age is also associated with poor health outcomes in later life – such as being more vulnerable to Covid-19 infection and experiencing depression. The findings, published in the journal Plos One, suggest chronic pain at age 44 is linked to very severe pain at age 51 and joblessness in later life. Study co-author Professor Alex Bryson, of University College London’s Social Research Instit

    Dear Matt Hancock and Nadine Dorries, We ask the DHSC to make provision for all NHS Trusts to work with the RCoA and RCOG to establish safely monitored IV ‘conscious’ sedation with analgesia as a treatment option for hysteroscopy+/-biopsy. Currently, Trusts put almost all patients through Trial by Outpatient Hysteroscopy and only those patients who fail (usually due to acute pain) are allowed a GA. There is no routine option of IV sedation with analgesia or spinal anaesthesia. We ask too that NHS Trusts give all hysteroscopy patients upfront a fully informed ‘Montgomery’/ GMC

    A woman says she was forced to pay around £25,000 for private healthcare to treat endometriosis after her symptoms were “overlooked” for eight years. Aneka Hindocha, 34, started voicing her concerns about painful periods when she was aged 25 but says she was initially told by doctors this was normal. Ms Hindocha, who described the pain of endometriosis as “someone ripping your insides out”, says the condition should have been diagnosed sooner but argued women’s pain often gets overlooked and ignored. Endometriosis is a very common chronic inflammatory condition, impacting an est

    NHS England set up a handful of specialist mesh centres in April 2021 to offer treatment and support to women harmed by vaginal mesh surgery. But they aren’t achieving what they need to, and this failure is leaving thousands of women harmed by mesh without help to deal with their life-changing complications, and without hope that their pain will ever be taken seriously. Here are ten problems with specialist mesh centres, identified through my regular contact with thousands of women suffering from mesh complications. 1. There are long waiting lists of sometimes more than a year just f

    Report findings Prevention campaigns are badly targeted and referral rates for those who do develop a health condition are inconsistent. At every stage marginalised communities face barriers to accessing high-quality recovery and rehabilitation services, including through societal discrimination, lack of cultural competence or communication barriers. A lack of consistent data is damaging the ability of health services to provide rehabilitation that meets needs. Without high-quality rehabilitation a patient experiences a downward spiral, and the prevalence of one LTC c
