    The report analyses responses from 955 perioperative practitioners – including Registered Nurses, Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs) and surgeons – surveyed in late 2021. Some key findings from the report include: Demand for a recognised, national training programme. 52% of perioperative practitioners have not received any education on the hazards of exposure to surgical smoke plume. However, 96% would attend training if it were made available. National guidance is needed to mandate the use of evacuation equipment during surgical procedures where surgical smoke plume

    Systems and processes in place around patient safety failed in terms of the work of a Belfast-based neurologist, an inquiry has found. Dr Michael Watt was at the centre of Northern Ireland’s largest ever recall of patients, which began in 2018, after concerns were raised about his clinical work. More than 4,000 of his former patients attended recall appointments. Almost a fifth of patients who attended recall appointments were found to have received an “insecure diagnosis”. The final report following the Independent Neurology Inquiry found that problems with Dr Watt’s pract

    Key conclusions include: The Belfast Trust should have intervened earlier, but failed to do so. Systems and processes in place to assure the public about patient safety prior to November 2016 failed. The effect of numerous failures ensured problems were missed for many years and opportunities to intervene were lost. Failures not confined to Belfast Trust - information was contained in silos with communications between different organisations and management levels poor and inadequate.

    Contractors could be required to provide trusts with the findings of criminal records checks on their employees, an update from Michael inquiry into mortuary security has suggested. The independent inquiry, chaired by Sir Jonathan Michael, was set up to examine the implications of the sexual assaults on the bodies of women and children in hospital mortuaries by maintenance supervisor and convicted murderer David Fuller. A progress report published this month by the inquiry highlighted “responsibilities between trusts and contractors” as an area of concern. The report said expect

    Patients that I care for remain the same. Medically they are the same as they ever were. They have bowel obstructions, they have heart attacks, they have infections, they break bones, and there will always be a constant flow of patients that need the services of the NHS. One day it will be you and it will be me, at some point we will rely on NHS care. However, the way that care is organised and delivered around us will change. We have no idea what it will look like in the future, but it will be different to what we knew before the pandemic hit. At the moment we are all working in a s

    In summary, this highlights the importance of working in an open, honest and transparent way where patients, victims and their families are put at the centre of the process, and focuses attention on the identification and implementation of improvements that will reduce the likelihood of recurrence, rather than simply the completion of a series of tasks.

    It's been a busy few months to say the least. Preparing for the pandemic, sourcing correct personal protective equipment (PPE), redeploying staff, acquiring new staff, making ventilators, redesigning how we work around the constraints, writing new policies, new guidance, surge plans, and then the complex part… caring for patients. If I am honest, when this all started it felt exciting. Adrenaline was high, motivation was high, we felt somewhat ready. There was a sense of real comradeship. It felt like we were all working for one purpose; to safely care for any patient that presented to us

    I've been posting advice to patients advising them to personally follow up on referrals. Good advice I believe, which could save lives. I'm interested in people's views on this. This is the message I'm sharing: **Important message for patients relating to clinical referrals in England** We need a specific effort to ensure ALL referrals are followed up. Some are getting 'lost'. I urge all patients to check your referral has been received, ensure your GP and the clinical team you have been referred to have the referral. Make sure you have a copy yourself too. Things
