    During the COVID-19 pandemic, partnership and collaboration between the NHS, patient and community organisations, and the life-sciences sector has been vital in enabling the system to adapt quickly and effectively to new challenges. This free online event will explore how this approach can be embedded to support system recovery and enable transformation, particularly where COVID-19 has led to significant disruption of services for people with long-term conditions. It will identify the challenges and opportunities people with long-term conditions face in securing good-quality, person-centr

    Cases of psychosis have risen significantly in England during the pandemic, according to new NHS data. The number of people referred to mental health services for their first suspected episode of psychosis increased by 75% between April 2019 and April 2021, figures showed. The data, which has been analysed by the charity Rethink Mental Illness, showed that much of the increase in referrals has happened over the last year, after the first national lockdown. The charity, Rethink Mental Illness, said that the data offers some of the first concrete evidence of the impact of the pand

    Some acute trusts have failed to report large numbers of hospital-acquired covid infections as patient safety incidents, despite NHS England describing this as ‘fundamental’. HSJ examined the numbers of “infection control” patient safety incidents reported to the national reporting and learning system in 2020-21, and compared this to separate NHS England data on covid infections most likely to have been acquired in hospital. The number of incidents reported to the NRLS in the 12-month period should in theory be higher, as it covers all types of hospital-acquired infections, while th

    The Training Recovery Interim Progress Report outlines the approach taken to define, manage and reduce risks to medical workforce wellbeing, numbers and future supply. It also sets out our joint commitments for continuing to build upon and embed the progress we have made to facilitate training recovery and secure future improvements to Post Graduate Medical Education. As a result of HEE and partners’ interventions, extension rates are currently lower than original projections. However, the number of trainees with a training backlog has grown over the duration of the programme. These train

    The government’s actions in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic have received a mixed review from MPs in a report that set out the successes and failures of the UK response. Although the joint report from the House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee and Health and Social Care Committee  praised the UK’s covid vaccination programme as highly effective, it also condemned serious errors, especially delayed lockdowns and how a test, trace, and isolate system was set up. Overall, the MPs’ inquiry found that some government initiatives were examples of global best practice but tha

    The NHS faces a mounting beds crisis as care homes suffering unprecedented staff shortages are forced to stop taking patients from hospitals, health and care leaders have warned. Ministers are desperately trying to free up space in the NHS to tackle a backlog of 5.6 million people – equivalent to almost 10% of people in England – awaiting treatment. But efforts to speed up the discharge of hospital patients into the community are being hampered by care worker shortages. Britain’s largest not-for-profit care home provider, MHA, has already had to close 1 in 10 of its homes to admissio

    Britain’s early handling of the coronavirus pandemic was one of the worst public health failures in UK history, with ministers and scientists taking a “fatalistic” approach that exacerbated the death toll, a landmark inquiry has found. “Groupthink”, evidence of British exceptionalism and a deliberately “slow and gradualist” approach meant the UK fared “significantly worse” than other countries, according to the 151-page “Coronavirus: lessons learned to date” report led by two former Conservative ministers. The crisis exposed “major deficiencies in the machinery of government”, with p

    A cabinet minister has refused to apologise for the government’s handing of the COVID-19 pandemic despite a new report finding that errors cost “thousands of lives”. Cabinet Office minister Stephen Barclay defended the government’s decision making to Sky News, saying: “We followed, throughout, the scientific advice. We got the vaccine deployed extremely quickly, we protected our NHS from the surge of cases.” His comments come as family members who lost loved ones to COVID-19 described the MPs’ report as “laughable” for failing to take evidence from the bereaved. The COVID-19 Ber

    Unvaccinated pregnant women accounted for nearly a fifth of the most severely ill coronavirus patients in England in recent months, according to health officials. Between July and September, 17% of COVID-19 patients who required a special lung bypass machine while in intensive care were mothers-to-be who had not received their first vaccine dose, NHS England said. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used when a patient’s lungs are so damaged by Covid-19 that a ventilator cannot maintain oxygen levels. While just six per cent of the women aged 16 to 49 who needed ECMO a

    NHS Long Term Plan Webinar Series NHS waiting lists have hit record levels across the UK as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the numbers are continuing to rise, with some experts warning 14 million people could be waiting for treatment by the end of 2022. Many hospital groups have turned to digital technology to increase clinical capacity, help safely manage patients and detect deteriorating patients, but are these short term saviours or long-term solutions? New NHS funding has been created to support innovation and the introduction of digital tools, so we have brought together

    An inquest into the death of a London bus driver at London’s Nightingale Hospital during the first wave of coronavirus has heard evidence about equipment mistakes which may have harmed patients. Kishorkumar Patel, aged 58, was one of the first patients to be admitted to the field hospital at London’s Excel Conference Centre in April last year. An inquest at East London Coroner’s Court was told doctors and nurses were forced to work “leanly” because of limited staff and ventilators to help patients breathe. Mr Patel is one of 10 patients who had the wrong filter used on the venti

    In the second of the REAL Centre's REAL Challenge annual lectures, Dr Hilary Cottam OBE – social entrepreneur and author of Radical Help: How We Can Remake the Relationships Between Us and Revolutionise the Welfare State – will bring fresh, innovative ideas to reinvigorate the way we think about care. In an agenda-setting lecture and panel debate, Hilary will explore whether this moment – as we emerge from the pandemic – might offer us a real chance to reimagine and reorganise how we care for one another. How could things be different? Can we ignite a new imagining about what care could b

    Queen Elizabeth Hospital Kings Lynn carried out a transparent review of 389 Covid infections An NHS trust has apologised to hundreds of families whose relatives caught Covid-19 in hospital and died, after a review found a lack of private rooms contributed to the spread of the virus. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, has carried out a review of all 389 cases of patients who either definitely or probably contracted Covid while in the hospital between March 2020 and February this year. Of those, 151 patients died. The trust is the only NHS trust to have ca
