    The report makes the following recommendations for co-producing health information resources: Health information in a range of formats can be helpful in urgent situations such as the Covid-19 pandemic. For long-term conditions, educational videos were preferred by participants over written information because they can be understood by all community members. Video information was seen as the most engaging and useful format for people who do not speak English. This echoes previous research with diverse communities in Australia that showed that video had advantages over other forms of hea

    NHS England has told local systems to defer ‘low priority’ cases across 11 community services, because of the pressures created by the omicron wave. NHSE has issued guidance for the prioritisation of the community health workforce “given the increasing pressures on the health system due to the omicron wave of COVID-19 this winter and the need to provide booster jabs as quickly as possible”. It is hoped the guidance will encourage the redeployment of community staff to help reduce the strain on acute services. Staff working in musculoskeletal services are being asked to depriori

    People with some of the deadliest forms of cancer are being diagnosed later than ever as a result of disruption to healthcare caused by the Covid pandemic, campaigners have warned. Stomach, lung, pancreatic, brain, stomach and oesophageal cancers have some of the poorest long-term survival rates and have always been disproportionately diagnosed late following an emergency hospital admission. However, campaigners are concerned that the poor prognoses for these patients have been exacerbated by factors such as a reluctance to attend A&E or bother GPs during the pandemic, and by bottlene

    Key recommendations of the report include: The Department of Health and Social Care should work with NHS England to produce a broader national health and care recovery plan that goes beyond the elective backlog to emergency care, mental health, primary care, community care and social care. This should be completed by April 2022 and must also set out a clear vision for what ‘success’ in tackling the backlog will look like to patients. In setting those metrics for success, the plan must take account of the risk that a reliance on numerical targets alone will deprioritise key services and
