    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.

    On her admission to hospital, the patient had been assigned the NHS number of another patient, who had the same date of birth and a similar name. During her stay she initially received medication prescribed to her based on her own supply, brought in by her family. However, following a pharmacy review on day 7 of admission, the medications were changed to those of the patient whose NHS number she had been incorrectly assigned. The patient declined to take the incorrect medication and the error was subsequently identified by a pharmacist the following day. Findings The investigation ide

    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

    Findings: MCoCer models that have sustained within the NHS have had supportive leadership from midwifery managers who have the necessary skills, attitudes, aptitudes and behaviours identified within the findings. Sustainable implementation of MCoCer is achieved through development of a values-based recruitment and retention policy within all areas of midwifery and encouraging midwives with previous experience in MCoCer or supportive philosophies towards it, to manage the model. Providing the appropriate support for MCoCer is time consuming and personally demanding for midwifery manage

    Policy Points: Healthcare complaints contain valuable data on quality and safety; however, there is no reliable method of analysis to unlock their potential. The authors demonstrate a method to analyse healthcare complaints that provides reliable insights on hot spots (where harm and near misses occur) and blind spots (before admissions, after discharge, systemic and low-level problems, and errors of omission). Systematic analysis of healthcare complaints can improve quality and safety by providing patient-centred insights that localise issues and shed light on difficult-to

    The NHS is to introduce a revolutionary new treatment to tackle the leading genetic cause of death among babies and young children. About 1,500 patients in England with certain types of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) are expected to benefit from risdiplam, after a recommendation from the health watchdog. The drug, also called Evrysdi and made by Roche, is a syrup that can be taken at home and is the first non-injectable treatment for the condition. SMA is a progressive neuromuscular condition affecting the nerves in the spinal cord controlling movement and can cause paralysis, muscle

    Emergency admissions Going into hospital as an emergency admission can be an anxious time for many people and we know that you may be worried about what to tell staff if you're admitted to hospital in an emergency. You should: Tell staff you have Parkinson's and how important it is to get your medication on time. Explain to staff what medication you take. Show them your medication record and ask them to keep a copy of it in your notes. Check they have recorded this accurately. Ask a member of staff to let your GP, specialist or Parkinson’s nurse know you are in hospit

    An NHS ambulance service boss has urged 999 callers to not hang up as "there may be a delay before we pick up". The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAS) said demands on the health service meant it was extremely busy. Marcus Bailey, EEAS chief operating officer, said delays were due to a "combination" of Covid, winter pressures and recruitment. He said the service planned to recruit 100 call-handlers over the next few months to help ease pressure. The EEAS has published posters online telling emergency callers to be patient. The service covers Bedfordshire, Cambridg

    Last week a receptionist saved a patient’s life. She put him straight into a face-to-face appointment early in the day. The doctor saw him and sent him to A&E urgently. He was operated on the same day. Receptionists are are given an impossible task, to fit a large number of patients into a small number of slots, and they have to stay calm. When the slots run out – which sometimes happens by 9am – they then have to persuade one of the doctors, already at the end of their tether, to add any patient they are especially worried about to their list. So it’s not surprising that when du

    Key findings include: Coronavirus remains the biggest health problem facing people around the world (selected by 70% of people across all 30 countries, only slightly down on the 72% recorded last year). Half as many (34%) say that cancer is an important health concern in 2021, down from 37% last year. Meanwhile, mental health sees a 5-point increase to 31%, putting it just 3 points behind global concern about cancer. Despite a challenging couple of years for healthcare services, public perceptions are holding up well overall: 53% rate their country’s healthcare services pos

    From next month, patients will be able to access all new entries in their online health records, if their GP practice use TPP or EMIS IT systems. According to NHS Digital, patients who use online accounts – such as the NHS App – and whose surgery uses TPP, will be able to view entries from December 2021 onwards. While, patients on an EMIS system should expect to see theirs from ‘early 2022’. Practices which use the Vision system are still currently in discussions over access. NHS Digital says that patients will not be able to see specific personal information, such as positive test r

    Huge waiting lists have left patients questioning whether their lives are worth living, a surgeon has warned. Paul Williams, an orthopaedic surgeon at Neath Port Talbot Hospital, dubbed the effect of long delays on mental and physical health "horrific". A health think-tank said waiting times were the biggest challenge the NHS in Wales has ever faced. The Welsh government said it wanted to "radically transform" how healthcare was delivered. Mr Williams said: "To be living with pain from an arthritic joint is terrible. "We sent out a questionnaire recently and many of the pat

    The BMA has advised practices to immediately start offering consultations of 15 minutes or more; and apply to close their patient list, as part of the fightback against the Government’s new GP access plan. It set out a range of measures GPs should take to protect their staff and patients and ‘prioritise’ core work amid pressure to return to pre-pandemic ways of working. In an email bulletin sent to GPs on Friday, the BMA’s GP Committee said that practices ‘should not feel pressured to return to a traditional 10-minute treadmill of face-to-face consultations that are neither good for

    This survey looks at the experiences of people who stayed at least one night in hospital as an inpatient. The results show that, generally, people’s experiences of inpatient care were positive and overall differences between COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients were small, suggesting that care provided was consistent. Most people said they were treated with respect and dignity, had confidence and trust in the doctors and nurses that treated them and observed high levels of cleanliness. Survey findings were less positive, however, for areas of care including people’s experiences of rece
