The letter describes how PPE may need to be changed more frequently which may increase demand. Symptoms of heat stress are similar to heat exhaustion and the necessary actions

    The gap was illustrated through an investigation that focused on a case of wrong tooth extraction. Wrong tooth extraction was categorised as a Never Event and therefore HSIB sought to understand the ‘barriers’ that exist in the pathway of care for wrong tooth extraction. The report identifies that while there are controls in place to prevent wrong tooth extraction, they invariably rely on staff to be effective and should not be regarded as ‘strong systemic protective’ barriers. The investigation went further to examine the differences in how the NHS defines and assures barriers in compari
