    A diagnosis of any type of diabetes can be a frightening and lonely experience at any age. You may have read stories about others living with diabetes or heard of “a friend of a friend” who had the condition. Those tales may not have been lavished in positives and, if you’ve been recently diagnosed, may even have had a negative impact upon you. At the time of my own diagnosis with type 1 diabetes, there was little in the way of peer support. That was a long time ago, in 1984. I remember talk of diabetes “camps” but, quite frankly, at the tender age of eight the prospect terrified me and I

    The Royal Surrey County Hospital is preparing to open its first virtual ward. From this summer 15 patients will receive treatment at home using apps and wearable technology, as an alternative to a stay in hospital. The ward will be overseen by a consultant, working with therapists, nursing staff and pharmacists. The hospital, in Guildford, plans to extend the ward to 52 patients by April 2024. Health providers across England have been asked to deliver virtual wards at a rate of 40 to 50 beds per 100,000 people by December 2023. It is hoped they will free up beds more q

    Around 400 staff are leaving the NHS every week due to the effects of stress, including burnout and PTSD, in the workplace. Burnout can cause people to make mistakes such as duplications, incorrect information and late data entry, which can cause incorrect decision-making. Working in one of the most passionate and necessary industries, it is important that healthcare workers including nurses, doctors and clinicians are given the right amount of support. With this in mind, here are five ways health tech companies can alleviate burnout across the workforce. 1. Implementing easy

    A major IT incident at an acute trust is disrupting treatment for eye patients after a significant data loss, it has emerged. Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals Trust chief executive Richard Beeken revealed to his trust’s board that a data loss incident in December had “impacted on staff and patient care” after disrupting 20 systems across the organisation. Recovery of the full data set for patients receiving treatment at the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre is still under way, and some have had operations postponed. Despite the incident, ophthalmologists are continuing to

    Hundreds of people who had retinal implants to improve their sight face an uncertain future as the technology they rely on is now obsolete. Second Sight stopped making its Argus II bionic eyes several years ago to focus on a brain implant instead. According to IEEE Spectrum it is now hoping to merge with a biopharmaceutical firm which does not make eye implants. IEEE Spectrum reports that Second Sight actually discontinued its retinal implants - which effectively take the place of photoreceptors in the eye to create a form of artificial vision - in 2019. Patients contacted by IE

    The white paper is based around nine principles. Their aim is to provide an easy-to-follow guide to human factors issues which need to be addressed when developing and implementing highly automated systems. The principles are: Understand the potential influence of other elements of the system on the automated components, as well as how the introduction of automation can affect those components. Automation must be seen in the context of the overall socio-technical system it exists in. Recognise that automation nearly always changes, rather than removes, the role of people in a sys

    Four hospitals in Greater Manchester are struggling with a near ‘total IT failure’ which has forced staff in all key services to use handwritten lists and notes. The problems have affected multiple IT systems across Royal Oldham, Fairfield General, Rochdale Infirmary and North Manchester General hospitals. Staff at the sites are running theatre and emergency departments using handwritten patient lists and notes, while bloods and scan results are also being written by hand. Patient histories are largely unavailable. HSJ spoke to staff who said there are major concerns over patien

    Hundreds of organisations, including drug companies, private healthcare providers and universities, have breached patient data sharing agreements but not had their access to patient data withdrawn, a report reveals. “High risk” breaches were revealed to have occurred at healthcare groups, pharmaceutical giants and educational institutions including Virgin Care, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Imperial College London, during audits by NHS Digital, according to an investigation by the BMJ.

    Key recommendations Democratising access Governments should: Fund annual medicine reviews to help people with chronic conditions with decision making and any identified gaps in care, and report on the number of medicine reviews conducted every year across different demographic groups. Prevent co-payments from causing a barrier to adherence, as evidence shows they can hinder people from taking prescribed medication. Invest in HCP training programmes on behaviour change to supply workers with the requisite skills and knowledge to support adherence to medication regim
