    Nadia Leake and Rachel Collum discuss the need for Family Integrated Care (FIcare) in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). FIcare is an approach that facilitates parents to be primary caregivers to their child while they are in NICU, allowing them to love and nurture their child. For it to work well, it requires a culture in the hospital that encourages bonding and family. Nadia and Rachel discuss their own experiences of FIcare, and of units where it has not yet been fully developed, and underline how the approach enables families to bond and supports better outcomes for premature babie

    The Comprehensive Model for Personalised Care has been co-produced with people with lived experience and a wide range of stakeholders and brings together six evidence-based and inter-linked components, each of which is defined by a standard, replicable delivery model. The components are: Shared decision making Personalised care and support planning Enabling choice, including legal rights to choice Social prescribing and community-based support Supported self-management Personal health budgets and integrated personal budgets. Through these standard mo

    Whilst there have been examples of good practice and praise from carers, the report found a number of areas of consistent concern: Patients, in some cases, were provided with very low levels of care but needed much more. This questions whether they should have been placed on a higher pathway and given an adequate level of support. Carers were not consulted about or involved in discharge. Consideration was not always given to a patient’s ability to remember or recall important information putting the patient’s and, at times, the carer’s health at risk. Some carers were

    When it comes to the discharging of a patient from hospital, it should be a time of relief – perhaps a long-term condition or illness is under control or an operation completed successfully. However for many thousands of carers this is not often the case. In more normal times, a period in hospital would have provided an opportunity for the close family friends and carers of a patient to become familiar with treatment plans, clinical staff and plans for discharge, as well as whatever rehabilitation and after care is needed. Being able to visit the patient in hospital would have also p

    On 22 September 2021 the Health and Social Care Select Committee launched a new inquiry examining the case for reform of NHS litigation, identifying concerns regarding a significant increase in clinical negligence costs and missed opportunities for learning to improve patient safety. The Committee stated that the existing system was “failing to meet its objectives for both families and the healthcare system”.[1] Here we will provide an overview of our response to this Inquiry, which focused on four key areas: Learning from avoidable harm in healthcare Improving redress for p

    In the report the Health and Social Care Select Committee say that the current social care system is “unfair and confusing”. They state that those living with dementia remain unprotected from unlimited costs and that navigating the system is burdensome for those providing support. Key recommendations to improve support for those living with dementia include: Urging the Government to accept the Committee’s recommendation from a previous report in 2020 that social care funding should be increased by an additional £7 billion per year by 2023–24 to cover demographic changes, uplift st

    In this podcast the presenters discuss how vulnerable patients have been adversely affected by hospital visiting restrictions put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic. They consider how trusts are still having to balance patient visiting with reducing the spread of Covid. One of the cases they refer to in this discussion is that of Azra Hussain, who died by suicide while a patient at Mary Seacole House, operated and staffed by Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust. In the Prevention of Future Deaths report, the Coroner raised patient safety concerns relating to her famil

    Earlier this summer the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review, led by Baroness Cumberlege, published its report First Do No Harm, which looked at how the healthcare system in England responds to reports about the harmful side effects from medicines and medical devices. One of the central recommendations of this report was the proposed appointment of a Patient Safety Commissioner who would “would champion the value of listening to patients and promoting users’ perspectives in seeking improvements to patient safety around the use of medicines and medical devices”.
