    The gap was illustrated through an investigation that focused on a case of wrong tooth extraction. Wrong tooth extraction was categorised as a Never Event and therefore HSIB sought to understand the ‘barriers’ that exist in the pathway of care for wrong tooth extraction. The report identifies that while there are controls in place to prevent wrong tooth extraction, they invariably rely on staff to be effective and should not be regarded as ‘strong systemic protective’ barriers. The investigation went further to examine the differences in how the NHS defines and assures barriers in compari

    Hospitals are putting on extra surgery sessions in the evenings and at weekends to tackle the NHS’s spiralling waiting list and cut waiting times for patients. Health trusts in England are taking the unusual step after a rise in people waiting for cancer, heart and other treatment – and especially those forced to wait more than a year – because of the pandemic. Doctors, surgeons, health charities and hospital bosses are concerned that unusually long delays in accessing care could lead to patients’ conditions worsening or becoming inoperable. NHS Providers, which represents hospitals,

    Three acute trusts have teamed up to carry out surgical procedures on hundreds of children over several weekends as part of plans to tackle waiting lists in the region. Trusts across the Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Integrated Care System are pooling resources to tackle long waits in paediatric oral and ear, nose and throat services. The initiative began on the April bank holiday weekend. Thirty-eight of the longest waiters from Royal United Hospitals Bath Foundation Trust, who had been waiting up to 74 weeks for oral surgery, were treated by Salisbury FT. The

    There has been a history of collaboration between the NHS and independent hospitals when delivering care to patients. This has included NHS patients undergoing care for certain conditions in independent hospitals. Recently, COVID-19 has placed increased pressure on the NHS. This has resulted in independent hospitals providing more care for NHS patients including urgent NHS elective surgical care and delivery of cancer pathways. This HSIB investigation will consider the safe provision of surgical care, with reference to a specific incident, and how decisions are made around which patients are

    Patients could be waiting as much as two years for vital operations by the time of the next election due to a “truly frightening” backlog of care caused by the pandemic, the NHS’s former boss has said. Lengthening delays in getting treatment in England are will become a major political problem for Boris Johnson and pose a risk to patients’ health, Sir David Nicholson told the Guardian. “The backlog is truly frightening. We can very easily get to the next election with people waiting over two years. It’s easy to do that,” said Nicholson, citing an explosion in the number of people wai

    Tens of thousands of post-operative deaths could be avoided by ensuring patients are given coronavirus vaccines while waiting for elective surgery, a new study suggests. People awaiting surgery around the globe should thus be prioritised for COVID-19 jabs ahead of other groups, according to the research, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). Studying data for 141,582 patients from across 1,667 hospitals in 116 countries – including Australia, Brazil, China, India, UAE, the UK and the US, scientists found that between 0.6 and 1.6% of patients have developed coro
