    This whitepaper takes a deeper look at the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on mental health services, outlining some immediate actions taken as a result of increased needs to meet mental health demands. These are further broken down according to distinct stakeholders across the spectrum of mental healthcare. Importantly, the research that backs SilverCloud’s digital mental health solution is presented, as providing an evidence-backed solution is key to offering and implementing treatments. Further, this whitepaper explains some of the key considerations that are essential for integrating internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (iCBT) within a wider delivery of mental health support in the future. A series of recommendations is made for reshaping the delivery of digital mental health therapy to create technology-enabled mental health services and processes, addressing current inequalities, and with built-in flexibility to withstand those challenges.

    The shift towards a digital-first healthcare system has accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrating that, given the opportunity for better access, people will engage in new ways with their health and wellbeing services. However, while many individuals have developed a greater awareness of their health and taken meaningful steps to improve it, the pandemic has exposed, and potentially increased inequalities in health outcomes due, in part, to inequalities in access to the technologies, connectivity, and digital and/or health literacy needed to improve outcomes equitably. The move to Integrated Care Systems (ICS) provides an opportunity to give greater priority to patient engagement and to integrate services around a 360 degree view of patient’s needs, focusing on how people experience their lives and health conditions, rather than on specific treatment/disease areas or pathways. This blog from Catherine Skilton, Deloitte, discusses what ICSs can do to realise the long-held vision of a person-centric health and care system.

    Patients and service users ask us to be clear when we give them information about their health. They also want us to show care and compassion when we talk and write to them. When we explain things clearly and with care and compassion, people have more confidence and trust in us and are more likely to take our advice, and follow medical guidance. They are happy to ask us questions about our advice so that they can take better care of their health. The Health Service Executive gives tips on how we can communicate clearly with patients and service users.

    Some years ago I stopped writing for journals, in favour of blogging & volgging. My reasons were: I specialise in patient involvement and inclusion, so I want the work of me and my colleagues to be easily found by everyone We didn't want our work to end up behind a paywall We work across disciplines and try to bypass hierarchies, especially in promoting action learning and patient led care I can see there are some really good Open Access Journals around. So my question for us all is: Which are the best Open Access Journals?

    NHS 24 is urging people to treat common illness at home as it faces its busiest period over the festive season. Helpline bosses have warned that it will take longer to answer calls as the service faces staffing pressures and increased demand caused by Covid. It expects 170,000 calls over Christmas and New year - including two four-day weekends with GP surgeries closed. The public have been advised to use the NHS Inform website to check symptoms before phoning NHS 24. Janice Houston, NHS 24 associate director of operations and nursing, said the spread of Omicron had left the service "missing key staff" with people required to self-isolate. "This year is exceptional and particularly busy," she said. "We plan within an inch of our life for our busiest period, so I would just ask the public to be patient with us. "We need to re-plan depending on who can't come to work from self-isolating. It might take a bit longer to answer the phone, but you will always get good care."

    A framework has been developed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), Royal College of Midwives and the Society and College of Radiographers, in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement, to support maternity services with the local reintroduction of hospital visitors and individuals accompanying women to appointments. This framework has been designed to assist NHS trusts to reintroduce access for partners, visitors and other supporters of pregnant women in English maternity services. It applies to inpatient and outpatient settings. Reintroducing visits is challenging during a pandemic, and the priority must be the safety of all service users (including pregnant women), staff and visitors.

    Internationally, safety of care in child and adolescent mental health has received limited attention. Attempts to understand this area have mainly focused on issues of safety in relation to safeguarding on the one hand, or lack of access to services on the other. There is a call for clinicians, service developers and researchers to consider harm and safety more generally in child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS). America and other countries have begun to initiate discussions on the possibility of harm caused by psychotherapy, however, the lack of shared definitions as to what constitutes safety and harm present ongoing challenges. To start to rise to these challenges this paper, published in Current Treatment Options in Pediatrics, outlines a possible framework for considering harm in relation to child and adolescent mental health provision.

    The 2013 Child Health Review into Epilepsy highlighted the importance of clear and comprehensive care plans for parents, schools and others caring for children and young people with epilepsy; providing them with information on how to respond to prolonged seizures. This finding supports the recommendations on emergency care plans as set out in the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) guidelines. A key recommendation from the review was for clinical teams looking after children and young people with epilepsy to consider introducing an 'epilepsy passport' as a means of improving communication and clarity around ongoing management.
