    About 15 million more people in England could be prescribed daily cholesterol-lowering statin pills to cut their risk of heart attacks and stroke, new advice for the NHS says. Given the very cheap price of the tablets and the possible health gains, they should be considered more often, the draft guidance says. There can be side effects though and there is debate about how widely this long-term treatment should be given and what associated risks are acceptable. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which advises the NHS, says people should be thoroughly as

    Although estimated ED error rates are low (and comparable to those found in other clinical settings), the number of patients potentially impacted is large. Not all diagnostic errors or harms are preventable, but wide variability in diagnostic error rates across diseases, symptoms, and hospitals suggests improvement is possible. With 130 million U.S. ED visits, estimated rates for diagnostic error (5.7%), misdiagnosis-related harms (2.0%), and serious misdiagnosis-related harms (0.3%) could translate to more than 7 million errors, 2.5 million harms, and 350,000 patients suffering potentially pr

    The report highlights that countries need to take urgent action to address the inequities in health caused by unjust and unfair factors within health systems. These factors—which account for many of the differences in health outcomes between persons with and without disabilities—can take the form of: negative attitudes of healthcare providers, health information in formats that cannot be understood, or difficulties accessing a health centre due to the physical environment, lack of transport or financial barriers. 9789240063600-eng.pdf

    Millions of people in the UK are suffering poor health because they miss out on vital rehabilitation after strokes, heart attacks and cancer, which in turn is also heaping further pressure on the NHS, a damning report warns. Physiotherapists say some groups of patients are particularly badly affected. Without access to these services, many patients desperately trying to recover from illness became “stuck in a downward spiral”, they said, with some developing other health conditions as a result. The new report by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) says millions of people in

    The NHS Long Term Plan identifies stroke as a clinical priority. The creation of Integrated Stroke Delivery Networks (ISDNs) is crucial to this plan, providing an integrated 24/7 full-pathway approach; bringing people and organisations together to deliver the best possible care across the whole pathway, from prevention and urgent care to rehabilitation and long term support. Twenty ISDNs, covering the whole of England, have been in place since April 2021. The National Stroke Programme published the National Stroke Service Model (NSSM) in May 2021, which outlines best practice to ensure in

    People would rather go to England if they had a stroke than use the A&E at a north Wales hospital, a health watchdog has said. Inspectors said there was a "clear and significant risk to patient safety" after inspections at the department in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Denbighshire. North Wales Community Health Council's Geoff Ryall-Harvey said it was the "worst situation" they had seen. The report said inspectors found staff who were "working above and beyond in challenging conditions" during a period of "unrelenting demand". Many staff told them they were unhappy and struggling to c

    A new report by the Stroke Association released today warns that, if the thrombectomy rate stays at 2020/21 levels, 47,112 stroke patients in England would miss out on the game changing acute stroke treatment, mechanical thrombectomy, over the length of the newly revised NHS Long Term Plan. This year, NHS England missed its original target to make mechanical thrombectomy available to all patients for whom it would benefit – only delivering to 28% of all suitable patients by December 20212. The Stroke Association’s ‘Saving Brains’ report calls for a 24/7 thrombectomy service, which could c

    The NHS and the Treasury need to make a renewed commitment to increasing the number of patients who benefit from thrombectomy, the Stroke Association has said, as it revealed the service was dependent on just 106 doctors in England. New analysis due to be published by the charity later this week – and shared with HSJ – also found only a quarter of thrombectomy units are open 24 hours, seven days a week, with 42% only operating during office hours and Monday to Friday. Despite an NHS long-term plan target of treating 10% of strokes with a thrombectomy by this year, only 2.8% were ben

    Dozens of patients died or suffered ‘severe harm’ after long waits for ambulances during a three-month period in a health system facing ‘extreme pressure’ on its emergency services. The 29 serious incidents in Cornwall included patients waiting many hours for assistance despite being in “extreme pain”, patients having suspected sepsis, patients in cardiac arrest, and patients experiencing a stroke. The incidents were reported to the Care Quality Commission by staff at South Western Ambulance Service Foundation Trust during an inspection of the Cornwall integrated care system’s urgent

    National NHS officials have called for ambulance response times for stroke cases to be “urgently reviewed”. A report on stroke services by Getting it Right First Time – an NHS England national programme – recommends modelling the impact of a change to the categorisation by ambulance services of suspected strokes. The GIRFT report notes that the time between symptom onset and arrival at hospital has increased by 41 minutes over the last seven years, yet faster access to emergency stroke care gives a better chance of survival and reduces the impact on quality of life for survivors.

    Stroke and heart attack victims are now routinely waiting more than an hour for an ambulance, after a further fall in performance in recent weeks, and with hospital handover delays hitting a new high point, HSJ reveals. Figures for ambulance performance this week, seen by HSJ, showed average response times for category two calls at more than 70 minutes for successive days. 3,000 patients may have suffered “severe harm” from delays in February, ambulance chief executives say. Several well-placed sources in the sector said response times had deteriorated further this month, and t

    A 75-year-old patient suffered a stroke in the early hours of the morning. He had woken feeling unwell (two hours after going to bed) and waited to see if his symptoms would improve. They didn’t improve and nearly three hours later, his wife called an ambulance. Before they set off with the patient, one of the paramedics contacted the emergency department (ED) at the first hospital (Trust A) to ‘pre-alert’ them of his arrival. The ED advised that they could not accept the patient as their stroke service was closed between 11pm and 8am, and that the paramedics should contact a neighbouring

    It was 4am on a Sunday in San Antonio, US, when Dana Jones heard an ominous sound, barely audible over the whirring of box fans, like someone struggling to breathe. She ran down the hall and found her daughter Kyra, age 12, lying on her back, gasping for air. Terrified, she called 911. A police officer, the first to arrive, dashed into Kyra’s bedroom, threw the slender girl over his shoulder and laid her on a leather sofa in the living room. He asked her mother, an oral surgery technician, to give her CPR. Kyra’s lips were ice-cold. An ambulance whisked the girl to Methodist Children

    The manifesto calls for equal access to high-quality, person centred community rehabilitation. It highlights current gaps in services, discusses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and states that failing to provide equal access to community rehabilitation falls short of the NHS constitution. It identifies the negative impact of inadequate community rehabilitation services, including: reduced quality of life and independence for people with long term conditions. increased risk of death for cardiovascular disease patients. increased emergency hospital admissions for fal
