    Let’s start with a story I was once told… There once was a very successful farmer who hired many people to work on his farm; at a glance, you could see countless heads of men and women tilling the ground. He grew very rich. The wealthier he became the more people he hired. His farmland kept increasing every year until it got to the boundary of a river. Although there were many workers, the farmer knew everyone by name and was able to account for them on a daily basis. However, over time, he noticed some workers who came to work could not be accounted for – they went missing. The farme

    In January, England's only NHS gender clinic for children and young people was rated "inadequate" by the country's health watchdog - the lowest rating, meaning it is performing badly. The findings make for sobering reading with inspectors raising "significant concerns" about the way the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) works. Nearly 5,000 children are waiting - sometimes for up to two years - for an appointment, and the management team has been disbanded following the inspection. Now BBC News has had exclusive sight of an external report written in 2015 which recommen

    Wards at a trust facing an inquiry over the deaths of vulnerable patients have been downgraded to ‘inadequate’ over fresh patient safety concerns. The Care Quality Commission said five adult and intensive wards across three hospitals run by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys (TEWV) Foundation Trust “did not manage patient safety incidents well”. It also criticised the trust’s leaders for failing to make sure staff knew how to assess patient risk. The watchdog rated the trust’s acute wards for adults of working age and psychiatric intensive care units as “inadequate” overall as well as for s

    The Manchester Triage System is a clinical risk management tool used by clinicians worldwide to enable them to safely manage patient flow when clinical need far exceeds capacity. The MTS is now an integrated series of tools used in the following domain: Emergency triage: Emergency departments. Telephone triage and advice: Urgent care desks. Pathfinder: Paramedic ambulances. Nursing and residential triage: Nursing and residential homes. SAFE pathways: Community-based HCPs. The 5 triage tools all share: A reductive methodology identifying life threa

    More Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections will take place from next month as pressures from COVID-19 continue to ease. Board papers published ahead of a meeting on Wednesday have revealed the CQC will return to inspecting and rating NHS trusts and independent healthcare services which are rated “inadequate” or “requires improvement”, alongside those where new risks have come to light. From April, the CQC also plans to carry out well-led inspections of NHS and private mental healthcare providers, and programmes of focused inspections on the safety of maternity departments and pr

    The team addresses the following questions: What are typical organizational protocols for requiring formal risk assessments? What factors should be considered that may change the patient's risk profile and how can clinicians parallel this change with appropriate reassessment and prophylaxis adjustment? What is the current discrepancy between attitudes versus evidence regarding prophylactic efforts? (Particular emphasis on ambulation) What information can be shared between patients and clinicians, and between healthcare settings to improve VTE prevention? What are

    Let’s imagine that you’re in your early 70s and you have a few chronic health problems. Your mobility has been getting worse due to arthritis in your hip. You’ve tried pain killers, had some physiotherapy and now use a stick but the pain and restriction in your function is getting you down. Your GP refers you to your local hospital to see an orthopaedic surgeon to discuss surgery. How do you know if having surgery is the right decision for you? On the face of it the decision may seem easy; have the surgery to cure the problem. Indeed many, or even most of us, would choose this option to b

    The Optimising Shared decision-makIng for high RIsk Surgery (OSIRIS) programme is funded by the National Institute for Health Research and investigates different aspects of the decision making process for major surgery. Improving our knowledge of how patients and doctors make decisions about major surgery is an important step in designing and trialling ways of improving this process for patients. We know that a lot of surgery has been cancelled due to COVID-19 and this is a cause of great concern for both patients and healthcare professionals. However, looking to the future, this research it i

    I believe all clinicians should read this latest report. There is so much to be learned and so many changes in clinical practice that can be made right away. Since 2018, I have been teaching using Oliver's tragic story to promote reflection on best practice in prescribing and in implementing the Mental Capacity Act. I could write a lot here; however, I believe this is a report all clinicians, and especially all prescribers, need to read in full. A summary of how I see this (or indeed how any individual sees it) it will not be adequate.

    Key points Communication between members of the surgical team is an integral component of the prevention of surgical fires. Open delivery of 100% oxygen should be avoided if at all possible for surgery above the xiphoid process. Surgeons usually control the ignition sources, such as electrosurgical units and lasers. Operating theatre nurses or practitioners usually control the fuel sources, such as alcohol-based preparations and surgical drapes. The use of an ignition source in close proximity of an oxidiser-enriched environment creates a high risk for surgical fir
