    Key findings from the report: There were 400 excess deaths attributable to pulmonary embolism misdiagnosis from March 2021 to April 2022 in England and Wales. In parts of England and Wales the number of deaths due to pulmonary embolism were almost 3 times the national average. The clinical guidelines and diagnostic processes used in England and Wales are out of step with our European counterparts and, in Jenny’s case, were not used correctly. Clinical teams too often lack the training, expertise and/or equipment to deliver safe and effective pulmonary embolism care.

    Key points from the briefing A Royal College of Radiologists’ survey found 41% of clinical radiologists do not have the equipment they need to deliver a safe and effective service. There is insufficient equipment in place to process scans quickly. The UK has fewer scanners than most comparable countries in the OECD. This equipment is also outdated. 10% of CT scanners to diagnose pulmonary embolisms are over 10 years old. The Royal College of Radiologists’ Workforce Census found that there is a shortfall of clinical radiology consultants specialising in chest & lung:

    Thousands of doctors are being prevented from working in overstretched GP surgeries across the UK because of unnecessary “red tape”, leaving NHS patients experiencing “unprecedented” waits for care, the head of the doctors’ regulator in the UK has said. Charlie Massey, the chief executive of the General Medical Council, said barriers that stopped medics from being deployed to meet areas of high demand, such as in primary care, must be removed urgently if the NHS workforce crisis was to be resolved and access to care improved. “Red tape is stopping the UK from making the most of many

    Three of the top seven countries from which the UK recruits overseas nurses are on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) ‘red list’ where active recruitment should not be used. Nigeria, Ghana and Nepal are the third, fifth and seventh highest respectively in the list of countries that provided the largest number of overseas staff joining the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register between April 2021 and March 2022. All three were on the red list during this period, which is derived by the WHO and identifies countries facing the most pressing health workforce shortages, meaning t

    The latest NHS workforce figures have shown that a record number of staff voluntarily resigned from their jobs during the first quarter of this financial year. According to the data, almost 35,000 NHS workers resigned voluntarily, which was up from 28,105 during the same period in 2021, and 19,380 in 2020. It is also higher than in any equivalent first quarter over the last 10 years. The most common reason for leaving during quarter one of 2021-22 was ‘work-life balance’, with almost 7,000 NHS workers citing this as their reason for leaving their jobs. Close to 2,000 NHS workers

    GPs have warned of a ‘tsunami of demand’ this winter as patient contacts surged 200% during the pandemic. One of the largest GP providers in the UK, Modality Partnership, told The Independent it received 4.8 million calls from patients in one year alone with around a quarter going unanswered every day. The provider, which covers 500,000 patients across the country, said its practices were now working above “safe levels” with 50 appointments a day per GP, far higher than the 35 advised by the British Medical Association. Speaking with The Independent, Vincent Sai, chief executive

    Key points Staffing levels have always been an issue: “What is the optimal level and mix of nurses required to deliver quality care as cost-effectively as possible?” is a perennial question. A range of methods to enable the ‘right’ staffing to be determined at a local level exist. The basic principles are nothing new. The different approaches and examples of each are outlined in Section 6 of this paper. Attention is now focussed more sharply than ever on staffing. Public expectation and the quality agenda demand that the disastrous effects of short staffing witnessed at Mid

    For the last 40 years, mainstream nursing workforce research has emphasised that having more registered nurses leads to better patient outcomes, and yet staffing policies have failed to implement this crucial concept. Meanwhile, global nursing shortages have become rampant, a problem that only dilutes the skill-mix ratios in the nursing workforce. There remains a dearth of well-researched evidence for a clear threshold on optimal safe staffing levels that could maximise quality of care relative to cost given limited healthcare financial budgets and which could also be fitted into each care set

    Ministers will introduce legislation as soon as parliament returns on Monday to tackle the NHS’s worsening staffing crisis by making it easier for overseas nurses and dentists to work in the UK. The move is part of a drive by the health secretary, Steve Barclay, to increase overseas recruitment to help plug workforce gaps in health and social care. Barclay believes thousands of extra health professionals will come as a result of new rules making it easier for medical regulators to register those who have qualified abroad. If the change proves successful it will help pave the way for

    The number of posts lying vacant across the NHS in England has reached a “staggering” record high of 132,139 – almost 10% of its planned workforce. The number at the end of June was up sharply from three months earlier when there were 105,855 vacancies, quarterly personnel figures show. NHS leaders said the huge number of empty posts showed why the health service is in a state of deepening crisis, with patients facing long waits for almost every type of care. The previous highest number of vacancies for full-time-equivalent staff was 111,864, recorded at the end of June 2019.
