    The Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety (IMMDS) Review, led by Baroness Julia Cumberlege, examined how the healthcare system in England responded to reports about harmful side effects of medicines and medical devices, focusing on three specific interventions: hormone pregnancy tests, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh implants. These interventions have resulted in a truly shocking degree of avoidable harm to patients over a period of decades. One of the Review’s patient safety recommendations was to create a database for all implantable medical devices. The Review in its findin

    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.

    Victims of breast surgeon Ian Paterson said independent inquiry improvements are not being implemented fast enough. Paterson was jailed in 2017 after he was found to have carried out needless operations on patients across Birmingham and Solihull. The 2020 report's recommendations include the recall of his 11,000 patients to assess their treatment. The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said it is working to stop future patients facing similar harm. On Sunday, ITV screened a documentary 'Bodies of Evidence: The Butcher Surgeon' which featured victim and campaigner Debbie

    Adult mental health patients in England have spent more than 200,000 days being treated in “inappropriate” out-of-area placements – at a cost to the NHS of £102m – in the year since the government pledged to end the practice. The Royal College of Psychiatrists, which carried out the analysis, says such placements, in which mental health patients can be sent hundreds of miles from home, are a shameful and dangerous practice that must stop. The government said it would end such placements by April last year but, in the 12 months since, 205,990 days were spent inappropriately out of are

    The 'Leadership for a collaborative and inclusive future' review, led Sir Gordon Messenger and supported by Dame Linda Pollard, focused on the best ways to strengthen leadership and management across health and with its key interfaces with adult social care in England. Findings Cultures and behaviours The review found that the current cultural environment does not lend itself to the collaborative leadership needed to deliver health and social care in a changing and diverse environment. Leadership is seen as a job role rather than a characteristic that runs through the workforc

    What is an Early Day Motion? Early Day Motions are motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons for which no day has been fixed, and as such very few are debated. They are used to put on record the views of individual MPs or to draw attention to specific events or campaigns. By attracting the signatures of other MPs, they can be used to demonstrate the level of parliamentary support for a particular cause or point of view.

    The trusts that have made the most and least progress on urgent recommendations set out by the Ockenden review have been revealed Published in December 2020, the interim Ockenden review set out 12 immediate and essential actions for all trusts with maternity provision, grouped into seven themes, and in its latest board papers NHS England has set out the progress they have made. The actions which trusts are struggling with most include “risk assessment throughout pregnancy” and clearly describing pathways of care in written information and posted on the trust websites.

    Recommendations 1. Medical and psychiatric ward staff need to be aware that patients with eating disorders being admitted to a medical or paediatric ward may be at high risk despite appearing well and having normal blood parameters. 2. The role of the primary care team is to monitor patients with eating disorders, refer them early and provide monitoring after discharge, in collaboration with medical services and EDSs (including community EDSs). Eating disorders are covered, in England, by the term severe mental illness and physical checks in primary care should be performed, even if u

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has issued an unprecedented implementation statement1 setting out the practical steps needed for its updated guideline on the diagnosis and management of myalgic encephalomyelitis (or encephalopathy)/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)2 to be implemented by the NHS. Such statements are only issued when a guideline is expected to have a “substantial” impact on NHS resources, and this is thought to be the first. It outlines the additional infrastructure and training that will be needed in both secondary and primary care to ensure that the

    This report from the Public Policy Projects recommends: 1. Qualitative research into the benefits that well-funded social care can have on quality of life, independency, isolation, relationships and general wellbeing. This should be combined with formal quantitative research into the impacts that properly funded social care can have on the NHS, including quantifiable information about hospital bed availability and the economic impact of the reduction of accidents and preventable illness. 2. There should be clear public guidelines on the social care system and how to access social ca

    Women and babies in the UK are “dying needlessly” because of a lack of suitable medicines to use in pregnancy, according to a report that calls for a radical overhaul of maternal health. A “profound” shortage of research and the widespread exclusion of pregnant and breastfeeding women from clinical trials means hardly any new drugs are approved for common medical problems in pregnancy or soon after childbirth, the report finds. Meanwhile, scarce or contradictory information about the safety of existing medicines women may be taking for continuing conditions can make it impossible to

    Recommendations Deliver effective advocacy for medicines in pregnancy through a coalition of pregnancy and baby charities, working together with the public, researchers from academia and industry as well as Government to create a shared vision for safe medicines evaluation and development in pregnancy. This will allow for clear and consistent messages to the public and clinicians. Pregnant women should be offered the opportunity to take part in all clinical trials of medicines that could be used in pregnancy, unless there are specific safety concerns. Prioritise updates for

    The independent review team found that patients, staff and visitors with compromised immune systems were exposed to risks which could have been lower if the correct design, build and commissioning had taken place. However, the report also says that since the building’s opening, measures have been put it place or are underway to ensure a sustained reduction in these risks. The report also identifies a number of other issues which arose as a result of the infections, including the effect on public confidence, disruption to treatments, additional workloads for infection prevention and c

    The recent Patient Safety Learning report, 'Mind the implementation gap: The persistence of avoidable harm in the NHS', highlights some important challenges and barriers to patient safety improvement, not only for the NHS in the UK but globally for health systems across the world. In many countries, including my country, Ethiopia, various investments have been made to improve the safety of healthcare delivery. We have been setting national minimum requirements/standards for health facilities, ethics and competence review systems for health professionals, but we have never had the confiden

    People with arthritis are being urged to lose weight and exercise more rather than rely on painkillers as the main therapies for their condition. NHS guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) says people who are overweight should be told their pain can be reduced if they shed the pounds. Aerobic exercise such as walking, as well as strength training, can ease symptoms and improve quality of life. Exercise programmes may initially make the pain worse, but this should settle down, the guidance suggests. The guidelines also give recommendations on t
