    This report highlights some key findings. Clinical services 100% of direct medical services were conducting the Clinical Standards Scorecards to ensure the safety of their service provision. However, use of the monthly and quarterly checklists was not as high or as regular. Direct service delivery in a majority of countries audited (5 out of 7) were fully compliant with the Clinical Standards. The average patient satisfaction score was 88%, outlining that in general, the 105 patients surveyed were satisfied with all aspects of service provision within our direct medical

    People administering Botox or fillers will be required to have a licence under new laws after an “unacceptable” rise in reports of botched cosmetic procedures in the UK. The legislation to protect against rogue practitioners will make it an offence to perform such non-surgical work without a licence after Sajid Javid said “far too many people have been left emotionally and physically scarred” when things have gone wrong. The health secretary recognised that most of those in the aesthetics industry “follow good practice” when it comes to patient safety but said it was time to think ab

    Around 1 in 5 hospital admissions in over-65s and around 6.5% of total hospital admissions are caused by the adverse effects of medicines. Prescribing people medicines that they neither need nor want can lead to serious harm, as identified in the Government’s 2021 National overprescribing review report. This is why the PRSB has been tasked with reviewing and revising our eDischarge summary standard and supporting documentation to ensure it addresses the issue of #oveprescribing and provide useful guidance to help users address issues. To do this, we are holding an online consultation with

    Key themes of the Standards Caseloads, capacity and time An effective District Nursing service should serve the need for nursing care in a defined community. District Nurses understand the needs of their local community but there must also be clear referral criteria for other services. A growing and ageing population, deprivation, communication issues, social isolation, acuity, multimorbidity, ‘rookie’ factor (number of inexperienced staff), travel time, frailty, cognitive issues, lack of other services and lack of home support systems all affect the demand for healthcare delive

    Although organisations are legally required to take ‘all reasonable and practical steps’ to improve safety, avoidable harm in healthcare continues to persist. In the UK, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, there were 11,000 avoidable deaths annually due to safety concerns and over 400,000 incidents of patient harm. We don’t yet know the full implications that the pandemic has had on patient safety, but we know it has both magnified existing patient safety issues and created new ones. Patient Safety Learning believes that one of the primary reasons for the persistence of such shocking fi

    The new Information Standard will standardise medication message content, enabling transfer of prescription information across health and care settings in England to help reduce medicines related errors and improve patient safety. The Standard will enable medicines information to be more efficiently shared between NHS and social care organisations, including primary and secondary care – from hospitals and GP practices to residential care homes, mental health trusts, and pharmacies. It will be particularly beneficial in reducing medication errors when patients transfer between care locati

    Inquiries from Bristol to Paterson have highlighted the complexity of the regulatory system and the risk of patient safety concerns falling between organisational boundaries. The Professional Standards Authority recognise that the professional regulators have done much to improve collaboration and the planned reforms to regulator powers and governance may support this. It is important that these reforms proceed regardless of what structural changes are taken forward. However, with reconfiguration now on the table, they believe wider changes are needed to simplify the system to improve pub

    A new information standard has been developed for sharing digital information on medication and allergies across different parts of health and social care services. The standard, which aims to reduce medicines errors comes into effect this month. NHS and social care organisations will have to show compliance by March 2023. GP practices, hospitals, mental health trusts, pharmacists, community teams and residential care homes will all have to meet the standard when transferring medication and prescription information between teams. The standard will be particularly helpful in redu
