    Key issues raised include: lack of communication and collaboration between primary and secondary care. the need for appreciation for the wider determinants of health and wellbeing that extend to the community and social care. poor transport links in the area. Participants were grateful for the opportunity to discuss broader system level challenges and opportunities, rather than focus on segments of quality or performance data. The conversation benefited from the inclusion and participation of broad health and social care groups in addition to GPs.

    The guidance is based on the following key principles: All healthcare workers have a right to work in an environment free from abuse, harassment, and unlawful discrimination. Employers should take active and explicit steps to protect their staff from abuse, harassment, and unlawful discrimination. This should involve the police and social services where appropriate. The impact of discrimination on doctors should be acknowledged and appropriate support including wellbeing interventions provided for those who are on the receiving end of abuse and discriminatory behaviours.

    The question of whether to impose a policy requiring mandatory vaccination for NHS staff has raised countless ethical and practical considerations, but with many healthcare workers still unvaccinated and the Government set for a U-turn over mandatory Covid jabs for NHS staff in England, has enough thought been given to the perspective of patients?

    The number of patients in hospitals who are ‘medically fit’ to leave has increased in January, despite NHS England targets for trusts to dramatically reduce the numbers. Internal data seen by HSJ suggests there were an average of 12,819 patients who no longer met the ‘criteria to reside’ in NHS hospitals in the week to January 23 – up from around 10,500 before the Christmas period. Last month, NHS England told local systems to dramatically reduce their numbers of medically fit patients who remained in hospital, as they aimed to free up beds amid a surge in covid-19 admissions fuelled

    Key findings Improving patient safety culture (PSC) is a significant priority for OECD countries as they work to improve healthcare quality and safety—a goal that has increased in importance as countries have faced new safety concerns connected to the COVID-19 pandemic. Findings from benchmarking work in PSC show that there is significant room for improvement. Across included survey findings from OECD countries, only 46% of surveyed health workers believe that important patient care information is transferred across hospital units and during shift changes. Just two-in-

    The report discovered: people living in ‘left behind’ neighbourhoods were 46% more likely to die from COVID-19 than those in the rest of England and 7% more likely to have died of the virus than those living in deprived non-LBN areas. in ‘left behind’ neighbourhoods men live 3.7 years fewer than average and women 3 years fewer. People in these neighbourhoods can both expect to live 7.5 fewer years in good health than their counterparts in the rest of England. people living in local authorities that contain ‘left behind’ neighbourhoods work more hours on average than those e

A decrease in patient satisfaction across most quality domains throughout the autumn of 2019 into early 2020. Distinct improvements in reported experiences of acute care as the Covid crisis took hold. Signs of plateauing and possible declines emerging in late summer / early autumn 2020.
