    After years of struggle to get our voices heard, the final report of the Cumberlege Review gave women harmed by mesh a ray of hope that perhaps help, and redress, were at hand. The report recommended that the NHS establish specialist mesh centres across the country to provide mesh removal and other treatment options to women suffering from debilitating complications as a result of pelvic mesh surgery. As Founder of Sling the Mesh, I was keen that our 9,000+ members were involved in the process of designing how these specialist centres would be set up. It had taken us a long time to get he

    Many pharmacies and physicians are forced to deny patients access to drugs, such as methotrexate, that can be used to help induce an abortion A few weeks after the supreme court’s 24 June decision to overturn the nationwide abortion rights established by Roe v Wade, the pharmacy chain Walgreens sent Annie England Noblin a message, informing her that her monthly prescription of methotrexate was held up. Noblin, a 40-year-old college instructor in rural Missouri, never had trouble getting her monthly prescription of methotrexate for her rheumatoid arthritis. So she went to her local Wa

    Recommendations Early mobilisation Collaborative multidisciplinary working is needed to ensure that pain, hypotension and delirium do not hold back early progress in physiotherapy. Patients should be helped to get up by the day after surgery – such ‘mobilisation’ is key to patients’ wellbeing and avoidance of complications such as delirium, deconditioning and pressure damage. This mobilisation is just one element of the physiotherapy provided to patients, but it is the key measure that the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) will use to drive forward local quality improvemen

    Protesters took to the pavement outside the White House on 19 September to demand a better deal for people affected by Long Covid, complaining that the Biden administration’s plans fell short on action and funding. “The pandemic is over,” President Joe Biden declared the night before in a pre-recorded interview which aired on the news magazine 60 Minutes. “We still have a problem with covid,” he said. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And, so, I think it’s changing.” But

    The government is promising to improve access to GPs, including same-day appointments for those that need them, as part of a new plan in England. Health Secretary Thérèse Coffey will make the pledge as she unveils her NHS plan for this winter and next. GPs will be able to take on extra staff, including senior nurses, while pharmacists will be asked to take on more work to free up appointments. Ms Coffey is due to announce the plan, which will also cover hospital services, in the House of Commons today. She is expected to say: "I will put a laser-like focus on the needs of p

    No patient data held by mental health trusts was taken following a cyber attack this summer, NHS England has confirmed. The regulator told HSJ it had received confirmation from tech firm Advanced, which was the subject of a cyber attack in July, that no data had been breached on its Carenotes electronic patient record. The EPR is used by around a dozen mental health trusts. The process of reconnecting trusts fully back to Carenotes also started this week, after providers spent two months with limited or no access to their EPR. HSJ previously revealed that senior NHS chiefs feare

    NHS England has issued a new deadline to treat patients who have been waiting more than two years for treatment, a month after saying it had ‘virtually eliminated’ the longest waits, it has emerged. The goal of no-one waiting more than 104 weeks for treatment by July this year was one of the first milestones in the elective recovery plan hammered out between NHSE and ministers. They were not eliminated by the end of July, but the number was reduced to 3,000, having stood at 22,000 in January. The remaining group consisted of nearly 1,600 patients who had been offered faster trea

    Summary of results People treated for cancer in England report generally positive experiences of care in hospital, but the results also show that care can lack personalisation, and that there are gaps in the wider support for people with cancer outside of hospital. Most respondents described positive experiences of care from specialist cancer teams and in hospital. Nine in ten had a main point of contact in their care team (92%), and almost all said that this person was “quite” or “very” helpful (96%). Similarly, respondents were positive about the support they received in hospi

    Doctors suffering from burnout are far more likely to be involved in incidents where patients’ safety is compromised, a global study has found. Burned-out medics are also much more likely to consider quitting, regret choosing medicine as their career, be dissatisfied with their job and receive low satisfaction ratings from patients. The findings, published in the BMJ, have raised fresh concern over the welfare and pressures on doctors in the NHS, given the extensive evidence that many are experiencing stress and exhaustion due to overwork.
