    The risk of dying from coronavirus is more than twice as great in the most deprived areas of England – with the disparity largest for women, analysis shows. A study by the Health Foundation of deaths from COVID-19 showed women in the most deprived parts of the country had a risk of dying that was 133% higher than those in the least deprived neighbourhoods. Between men the difference in risk was 114% higher in worse-off areas, suggesting that while deprivation is a key factor in risk of death from coronavirus for both sexes, its effect is worse for women. Experts say the evidence shows the impact of COVID-19 is falling disproportionately on the poorest in society. Mai Stafford, principal data analyst at the Health Foundation, told The Independent: “This pandemic could and should be a watershed moment in creating the social and political will to build a society that values everyone’s health now and in the long term. Without significant action, there is a real risk that those facing the most disadvantage will eventually pay the highest price.” Read full story Source: The Independent, 21 May 2020

    The safety of non COVID-19 patients We need to keep all patients safe Healthcare professionals will be focused by this crisis with huge efforts being made into limiting the spread, protecting patients and keeping demand for health services down and to manageable levels. We must not forget about the adverse consequences this will have on others who need our services. We need to assess the impact COVID-19 (CV19) will have on patient safety as existing patient safety issues will be magnified and exacerbated with the rapid escalation of CV19, known causes of these issues such as scarcity of workforce are likely to become even more significant and as CV19 will become the main focus of a large number of healthcare care staff patient safety initiatives that have to date had traction and success may be abandoned for expediency. Patient, carers, family and friends perspective Healthcare staff will be focused on treating the person in front of them and the associated risks of CV19 to that individual. Patients see their whole care journey. They are well placed to identify gaps quickly. The concerns and experiences shared by patients and their families will help us highlight bigger system issues that need addressing quickly to prevent avoidable harm during this pandemic. We need patient stories, we need everyone's and anyone's stories. Knowledge sharing and collaboration for patient safety We are collating insights into the impact on non CV19 patients and patient safety to inform healthcare leaders and afterwards for learning. We are using Patient Safety Learning’s the hub, a dedicated knowledge-sharing platform and community for patient safety, to do this. This has a knowledge repository, communities of practice, news and invites members to share their resources and insights. There is already a dedicated section of the hub that contains resources on coronavirus and CV19: guidance, advice, tips and personal experience blogs. We have set up a separate section on our community and inviting patients, family members and staff to share their stories, highlighting weaknesses/safety issues that need to be addressed and sharing solutions that are working: Stories from patients, carers, families We are inviting people to share with us their stories and: A personal snippet of their life and personality (a photo would be great to make it personal) Where they live What part of the healthcare system they access and for how long have they been using it? What have they noticed that has been different now the crisis has started? E.g. outpatient appointments, collection of medication, GP appointments, cancellation of operations? What impact has this had on them? What are their fears about their long-term health problem in amongst the crisis? Do they feel safe? Do they feel informed? Contact details if they are happy to share. Highlight new areas of unsafe care. What have they noticed that has been different now the crisis has started, e.g. outpatient appointments, collection of medication, GP appointments, cancellation of operations? Some of the issues we’re keen to look at are: Aspects of healthcare that you previously considered safe but maybe no longer be so as a consequence of fewer staff, changes in ways of working, unclear new arrangements etc. In cases of elective intervention and/or appointment being postponed, does the patient/family know the warning signs to call for help? Is there a hotline or urgent clinic for patients to contact? Positive stories as well as negative. Has anything improved since the crisis? For example, has the use of digital/virtual interventions (accessing a GP) had a positive effect? Data and analytics if available to show current trends in safety and adherence. How we can engage with patient leaders to access patients’ stories We are actively promoting the sourcing of insight from patients, families and staff. We will be actively promoting this through the patient safety agencies, patient and family organisations, healthcare systems, social and mainstream media in. We will promote as a campaign through #SafetyStories What will we do with this insight and information? This information will be publicly available on the hub for all. We will review the content and identify themes of concern/worry and highlight as a global resource through regular updates and reports. These will highlight the ‘second victims' of the virus.
