    If doctors had tested a nine-year-old girl's blood sooner they may have changed the treatment she received before her death, an expert witness has confirmed to a medical tribunal. The hearing was told this was a "significant failure" in the care of Claire Roberts. Claire died at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children in 1996. In 2018 a public inquiry concluded she died from an overdose of fluids and medication caused by negligent care. At the time, her parents were told a viral infection had spread from her stomach to her brain. The General Medical Council (GMC) said one o

    Hospital authorities in Wales have been accused of attempting to cover up failings in the delivery of a baby born with significant brain damage. Gethin Channon, who was born on 25 March 2019 at Singleton Hospital, in Swansea, suffers from quadriplegic cerebral palsy, a severe disability that requires 24/7 care. There were complications during his birth, due to him being in an abnormal position that prevented normal delivery, and he was eventually born via caesarean section. An independent review commissioned by Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB), which manages Singleton

    NHS England set up a handful of specialist mesh centres in April 2021 to offer treatment and support to women harmed by vaginal mesh surgery. But they aren’t achieving what they need to, and this failure is leaving thousands of women harmed by mesh without help to deal with their life-changing complications, and without hope that their pain will ever be taken seriously. Here are ten problems with specialist mesh centres, identified through my regular contact with thousands of women suffering from mesh complications. 1. There are long waiting lists of sometimes more than a year just f

    An NHS trust has “not covered itself in glory” in its dealings with the family of a vulnerable young woman who killed herself after being refused admission to hospital, a coroner has found. The three-day hearing looked at evidence withheld from the original inquest into the death of Sally Mays, who killed herself in 2014 after being turned away from a mental health unit. Mays was failed by staff “neglect” at Miranda House in Hull, a 2015 inquest ruled, after a 14-minute assessment led to her being refused a place, despite being a suicide risk. Her parents, Angela and Andy Mays,

    During 2021-22, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continued to put intense pressure on healthcare services and required HIW to adapt its processes and approach to its work. This report outlines how HIW introduced new ways of working to ensure it discharged its statutory functions, whilst being as flexible and adaptable as possible to avoid putting undue pressure on health services. The report describes HIW's progress against its four strategic priorities: To maximise the impact of our work to support improvement in healthcare To take action when standards are not met To b

    Families have blasted a NHS Trust after it said it did not intend to publish an independent review into their loved ones deaths. Three young people died in nine months at the same mental health unit. A Coroner was told last week that the review will be "ready" this month. Rowan Thompson, 18, died while a patient at the unit, based in the former Prestwich Hospital, Bury, in October 2020, followed by Charlie Millers, 17, in December that year, and Ania Sohail, 21, in June last year. Earlier this year, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH), which runs the hospital

    Is it time to change the way England's healthcare system is funded? Is the English system in need of radical structural change at the top? I've been prompted to think about this by the article about the German public health system on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-62986347.amp There are no quick fixes, however we all need to look at this closely. I believe that really 'modernising' / 'transforming' our health & #socialcare systems could 'save the #NHS'. Both for #patients through improved safety, efficiency & accountability, and by making the #NHS

    An ambulance trust accused of withholding key evidence from coroners was previously warned its staff needed training to ‘understand the real risk of committing criminal offences’ in relation to inquests into patient deaths. North East Ambulance Service, which has been accused by whistleblowers of withholding details from coroners in more than 90 deaths, was told by its lawyers in 2019 about serious shortcomings in its processes for disclosing information, according to internal documents obtained by a campaigner. According to the documents, the lawyers said trust staff could “pick and

    A nurse in Somerset has been struck off after she failed to give morphine to a patient before they underwent surgery. Amanda-Jane Price had been suspended from front-line duties since the incident in March 2019. The Nursing and Midwifery Council ruled that Miss Price had been "dishonest" with her colleagues and her ability to practice medicine safely was "impaired". Miss Price had been a nurse at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton since 2018. On 31 March 2019, Miss Price did not administer morphine to an individual in her care, falsely recording in her notes that morphine had bee

    On March 4, 2001, George Dover stood outside a Baltimore County home, rang the doorbell and changed the future of Johns Hopkins Medicine. The director of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center had come to the home of Tony and Sorrel King to apologise to the grieving parents. Six weeks earlier, the Kings’ 18-month-old daughter, Josie, had wandered into an upstairs bathroom, turned on the hot water and climbed into the tub. By the time her screams brought her mother, Josie had second-degree burns on more than half of her body. The toddler was rushed to The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where sh

    Health organisations regularly state that in the spirit of openness and transparency they put things in the public domain – if something has gone wrong they are open and transparent with patients, their relatives and/or carers, and they want staff to be open and transparent if they see things which are wrong, or if something happens unexpected. But what does being open and transparent mean? If we say an individual is transparent it has a negativity about it – they are see-through and potentially have ulterior motives. Sayings such as ‘hidden in plain sight’ or ‘a good day to bury bad

    The report makes the following proposals to the way in which the NHS is organised: We change radically the role of the centre to focus on certain core capabilities that the centre should do and can only do. These would include eventually: a full national public-health data infrastructure, one that is interoperable and capable of bringing all the disparate data sets within the NHS under one roof; electronic personal or health records for all patients with patients given the right to have all their information stored and available to any health-care professional they want anywhere in the

    Notifiable safety incidents ‘Notifiable safety incident’ is a specific term defined in the duty of candour regulation. It should not be confused with other types of safety incidents or notifications. A notifiable safety incident must meet all 3 of the following criteria: It must have been unintended or unexpected. It must have occurred during the provision of an activity the CQC regulate. In the reasonable opinion of a healthcare professional, already has, or might, result in death, or severe or moderate harm to the person receiving care. This element varies slight

    A doctor who attempted to cover up the true circumstances of the death in 1995 of a four-year-old patient has been struck off. Consultant paediatric anaesthetist Dr Robert Taylor dishonestly misled police and a public inquiry about his treatment of Adam Strain, who died at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, a medical tribunal found. The youngster was admitted for a kidney transplant at the hospital following renal failure but did not survive surgery in November 1995. Six months later an inquest ruled Adam died from cerebral oedema – brain swelling – partly due to the
