    The Independent Healthcare Providers Network (IHPN) have today launched a “refresh” of its Medical Practitioners Assurance Framework (MPAF), designed to further improve the safety and quality of care independent providers deliver to patients. Initially launched in October 2019, the MPAF – led by former National NHS Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh – contains key principles to strengthen and build upon the medical governance systems already in place in the sector and sets out expected practice in a number of key areas. Care Quality Commission (CQC) now uses the framework’s principles

    More than half of maternity units in England fail consistently to meet safety standards, BBC analysis of official statistics shows. Health regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rates 7% of units as posing a high risk of avoidable harm. A further 48% require improvement. The figures are slightly worse than a few years ago, despite several attempts to transform maternity care. The regulator says the pace of improvement has been disappointing. In most cases, pregnancy and birth are a positive and safe experience for women and their families, says the CQC. But when things

    "Thank you for the opportunity to speak today and support the system leadership being shown by the PSA. My name is Helen Hughes, and I am the Chief Executive of Patient Safety Learning, a charity and an independent voice for system wide change.

    A new patient safety chief should be appointed in each of the four UK nations to oversee health and social care and tackle the currently “fragmented and complex” system, experts have urged. The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (the body that oversees the 10 statutory bodies that regulate health and social care professionals in the UK, including the General Medical Council) has called for what it described as a radical rethink to improve safety in care. In a report published last week, it recommended the appointment of an independent health and social care safety

    The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) is an independent body which oversees the ten statutory bodies that regulate healthcare professionals in the United Kingdom and social care in England. Its aim is to protect the public by improving the regulation and registration of people who work in health and social care.[1] In its new report, Safer care for all – solutions from professional regulation and beyond, the PSA set out their view of the main unresolved challenges which impact the quality and safety of health and social care.[2] This is structured around fo

    Working together to achieve safer care for all There are some big challenges ahead that need us all to work together to solve them. In our new report, 'Safer Care for All: solutions from professional regulation and beyond', we set out four key challenges for patient and service user safety: Tackling inequalities. Keeping pace with changes to technology and the delivery of care. Facing up to the workforce crisis. Addressing issues of accountability, fear and public safety. We suggest possible solutions as well as one major overarching recommendation: that eac

    The report considers four main themes: 1) Tackling inequalities The report sets out that there are persistent, major inequalities in access to and experience of healthcare services. To help tackle this, it states that the system as a whole needs to improve the way it collects data about the protected characteristics of complainants, so that we can see start to identify any differences in how care is delivered, and how complaints are handled. 2) Regulating for new risks It highlights that the way health and care are funded and delivered is changing. There is an increase in ‘

    Some of the country’s leading acute hospitals are not meeting a key NHS standard for mental health support in emergency departments, HSJ research suggests, with some regions faring better than others. Latest official estimates indicate that more than a third of EDs (36 per cent) are not yet meeting ‘core 24’ standards for psychiatric liaison – which requires a minimum of 1.5 full-time equivalent consultants and 11 mental health practitioners. The long-term plan target is for 70 per cent of acute trust emergency departments to have the optimum ‘core 24’ standard service by 2023-24. Th
