    In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the NHS continues to operate under enormous pressure. It faces the challenge of responding to ongoing Covid infections alongside addressing a growing and complex backlog of care and treatment, with an over-stretched workforce. But this backlog is not limited to the much-covered issue of hospital-based surgical waiting lists. We are also increasingly hearing that GPs are struggling to ensure patients can access outpatient services. There is growing evidence that some hospitals are systematically rejecting new GP referrals to outpatient clinics. NHS Eng

    Three in four GPs have reported facing increasing patient abuse last year, according to a major survey by a medical defence organisation. The Medical and Dental Defence Union of Scotland (MDDUS) surveyed almost 2,000 members across the UK, including 668 GPs, about their experiences last year compared with 2020. It revealed that 76% of GPs reported an increase in verbal abuse from patients towards them and their practice staff. Half of these (38%) said this had ‘significantly increased’ and the other half that it had ‘somewhat increased’ throughout 2021. Female GPs were more like

    This study from Manbinder Sidhu and Jack Pollard investigated: what specifically has led to hospitals and GP practices being run by the same organisation; how it is done; the expectations of the GPs and NHS managers who made it happen; whether those expectations are being fulfilled; and whether there are any other consequences. To do this, they have interviewed GPs, NHS managers and other staff, 52 people in all, at two locations in England and one in Wales. They have also observed management meetings and reviewed documents referred to by interviewees. They found that the dominant re

    The analysis found that: only a minority of patient requests for care stated a preference for a face-to-face consultation – falling from 30% of requests before the pandemic to less than 4% at the start of the pandemic. While requests for face-to-face consultations did increase after that, they only accounted for 10% of requests by the end of the study period in September 2021.the increasing use of online consultations systems cause concern about the risk of digital tools creating inequalities by making it difficult for some patients to access care.digital exclusion can be overcome if GP servic

    The Public Accounts Committee made six conclusions and recommendations: The Department has overseen years of decline in the NHS’s cancer and elective care waiting time performance and, even before the pandemic, did not increase capacity sufficiently to meet growing demand. Recommendation: The Department must strengthen its arrangements for holding NHSE&I to account for its performance against waiting times standards for elective and cancer care. This should include specific expectations for improving waiting time performance in 2022–23. The Department should write to the Committee

    The key messages are: Screen all new entrants, including children, for tuberculosis (TB). (Due to low prevalence) look for hepatitis B risk factors that may indicate a need for screening. Consider screening for hepatitis C (considerably higher prevalence than the UK). There is a risk of typhoid infection. Consider nutritional and metabolic concerns. Work with a professional interpreter where language barriers are present. Consider the impacts of culture, religion and gender on health. Assess for mental health (and trauma) conditions. Supp

    Key messages: Now is the time to reform general practice in England. Reform is not a distraction from tackling the biggest issues confronting the profession. A mixed economy should prevail, but with greater incentives for workforce, data and procurement to become coordinated through ‘layers of scale’ in cooperation with the NHS. Independent provision will continue to have a central role in primary care. The primary care pathway should be redesigned to improve access by creating a more coherent ‘first contact’. Ensure continuity of care is built into any ne
