    Currently, many organisations and systems that we have worked with are seeing staff as a cost. Requests to hire staff are scrutinised and blocked, vacancies are seen as a way of reducing overspends and capacity plans to recover backlogs are essentially just plans to “sweat the assets”. As well as damaging the staff experience and damaging service-user outcomes, this is leading to the opposite of what it intends – an increased cost to serve. Systems and organisations need to build in time for training, upskilling and nurturing staff when developing workforce plans in a world of rising demand le

    The Safety for All campaign has organised this webinar in partnership with NHS Supply Chain and Patient Safety Learning. It will look at the challenges in healthcare supply chain and patient and staff safety. As we emerge from Covid restrictions, it is timely to look back and forward at the challenges facing the supply chain in healthcare, but also to ensure that safety for both patients and staff are prioritised amongst the other challenges facing the NHS and social care in the future. The webinar will be chaired by Jonathan Hazan, Chair of Patient Safety Learning, and will feature a key

    Midwife-supported homebirths will not be re-introduced in Guernsey after their suspension due to coronavirus. The committee for health and social care explained it is difficult for a small team to accommodate the births. It said that if the service was reinstated, it may impact deliveries on Loveridge Ward in Princess Elizabeth Hospital. A spokesperson said they were "very sorry" to parents who wanted to give birth at home. The committee said homebirths rely on a demanding on-call commitment from community midwives on top of their contracted hours. To facilitate a birth at

    There is no significant relationship between the number of managers or the amount spent on management and the quality of NHS hospital services, research has concluded. Researchers at the London School of Economics studied the performance of all 129 non-specialist acute trusts between 2012-13 and 2018-19. They measured hospital performance on five indicators covering financial position, elective and emergency waiting times, level of admissions and mortality. This was then compared to the number of managers each trust employed and the amount spent on management staff. The research

    The national chief for the Covid vaccination programme has warned that the NHS cannot become a vaccination service every few months. Emily Lawson also told healthcare staff in a briefing on Wednesday: “I have fed back to the Department of Health yesterday that I think realistically we don’t have the capacity to do anything else new over the next two-and-a-half weeks. “And that when we plan for things and have the right lead-up to them, we deliver them more effectively, which in the end is very critical for public confidence.” Her warning comes after the government announced plan

    Eight highly skilled intensive care (ICU) nurses have resigned from one trust in the past two weeks and more could follow, a leading nurse has warned. More resignations expected as working conditions remain unsustainable Belfast Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland has confirmed it is redeploying non-specialist nursing staff to fill the gaps in staffing on ICU wards, with experienced ICU nurses expected to provide supervision. RCN Northern Ireland director Rita Devlin said the college has heard others at the trust are ‘considering their position’. "These are hig

    We are currently developing the Open Registry infrastructure in South West England, and are bringing together medical device manufacturers (from the world's largest to the smallest) and NHS trusts, with their surgeons that already have relationships with specific manufacturers. Using the system: a patient example Imagine that you are in a consultation with your surgeon, who advises that the mitral valve in your heart needs to be repaired. Your surgeon advises that this procedure can be done with minimally invasive surgery. They recommend using Device-X and you ask, "Why, what evidence

    Patients are starting to suffer because health and care workers are unable to purchase fuel. The fuel crisis is starting to have an effect on the care of vulnerable patients, community and mental health service providers have warned. Many petrol stations are running short of fuel as a result of panic buying, after the oil firm BP warned that it would have to close some of its petrol stations because of the lack of lorry drivers. Currently there is a shortage of about 100,000 HGV drivers. Crystal Oldman, chief executive for the Queen’s Nursing Institute, which represents community nur

    New analysis published by the Health Foundation shows that while the waiting list for hospital care continues to grow, so too does the number of ‘missing' patients who have not yet been added to the list. There were 7.5 million fewer people referred for routine hospital care between January 2020 and July 2021 than would have been expected based on numbers prior to the pandemic. These ‘missing patients’ are in addition to the record 5.6 million people already on the waiting list. This lower than expected number of people referred for hospital care, including for routine procedures such a

    A quarter of NHS workers are more likely to quit their job than a year ago because they are unhappy about their pay, frustrated by understaffing and exhausted by COVID-19, a survey suggests. The findings have prompted warnings that the health service is facing a potential “deadly exodus” of key personnel just as it tries to restart normal care after the pandemic. A representative poll of 1,006 health professionals across the UK by YouGov for the IPPR thinktank found that the pandemic has left one in four more likely to leave than a year ago. That includes 29% of nurses and midwives,

    A hospital A&E department has been downgraded by regulators amid fears of “significant risk of harm” to patients after inspectors found some were crammed “head to toe” on trolleys during a surge in coronavirus cases. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has told bosses at the Royal Oldham Hospital to urgently improve its A&E service after the November inspection found staff were not following infection rules and patients were at risk of catching the virus. The inspection confirms reports, revealed by The Independent last year, that patients in the A&E unit were being forced

    NHS England has asked hospitals across the country to open hundreds more intensive care beds so they can take in patients from the hardest hit areas, to prevent those patches having to ration access. A letter sent to dozens of acute trusts today by NHS England asks them to enact their “maximum surge” for critical care from tomorrow, opening up hundreds of beds, which will rely on them redeploying staff and cancelling more planned care. The letter is to trusts in the Midlands but HSJ understands a similar approach is being taken in the other regions where critical care is not currentl

    Background In 2018, SIM was selected for national scaling and spread across the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs).

    A woman described as a "high risk" anorexia patient faced delays in treatment after moving to university, an inquest has heard. Madeline Wallace, 18, from Cambridgeshire, was told there could be a six-week delay in her seeing a specialist after moving to Edinburgh. The student "struggled" while at university and a coroner said there appeared to be a "gap" in her care. Ms Wallace died on 9 January 2018 due to complications from sepsis. A parliamentary health service ombudsman report into her death was being written at the time of Ms Wallace's treatment in 2017 and issues raised i

    Patients are more likely to die on wards staffed by a high number of temporary nurses, a study has found. Researchers say the findings, published in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship, are a warning sign that the common practice by many hospitals of relying on agency nurses is not a risk-free option for patients. The University of Southampton study found that risk of death increased by 12 per cent for every day a patient experienced a high level of temporary staffing – defined as 1.5 hours of agency nursing a day per patient. For an average ward, this increased risk could apply when

    This report builds on those of previous years to provide analysis of longer-term trends and insights into the changing NHS staff profile. It focuses specifically on the critical NHS workforce issues that have been repeatedly identified in recent years: nursing shortages, and shortages of staff in general practice and primary care. The report also explores key pressure points: student nurses the international context and international recruitment retention. The report concludes by summarising the key workforce challenges that will need to be considered in the develop
