    Key findings from the 2021 survey include: 95% of respondents said they reported errors to improve pharmacy practice and 80% said they reported in order to help others learn from mistakes. The vast majority (91.4%) of respondents said the reporting procedure was “clear” or “very clear” and a similar proportion (91.6%) said they felt “fairly confident” or “completely confident” following reporting procedures correctly. Almost two thirds (65%) of respondents were aware of the change to the law, introduced in 2018, which provides a legal defence from criminal prosecution in th

    US health officials are monitoring an unusual situation in the UK, where COVID-19 cases and hospitalisations are simultaneously climbing due to the BA.2 subvariant, CNN reports. COVID-19 cases were up 52% in the UK last week compared with the week prior, and hospitalisations were up 18%t over the same period, according to the UK Coronavirus Dashboard. The seemingly in-tandem ascent of cases and hospitalisations is unusual, given that increases in COVID-19 cases preceded increases in hospitalisations by about 10 days to two weeks in previous waves. "So we're obviously keenly i

    Medication delays can risk life-threatening complications for patients with Parkinson's disease, including choking, aspiration pneumonia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. In 2016, the spouse of a patient with Parkinson's disease wrote to LTHT to highlight that multiple medication delays and omissions had occurred during his recent admission. In response, LTHT formed a multidisciplinary quality improvement Collaborative to ensure patients with Parkinson's disease received their medication on time. Thanks to the project, between January 2016 and June 2020: mean delays in the time

    In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, when we knew very little about the natural history of the virus, groups of patients started to report long-lasting symptoms. This was termed Long Covid or Post-Acute Covid Syndrome (PACS), and it posed great uncertainty for both clinicians and patients, particularly as case numbers rose. I was one of a group of UK doctors experiencing Long Covid who formed a social media group to make sense of our own experiences. This helped us to identify patterns of ill-health and share knowledge. In mid-2020, we published medical articles about the patterns

    This online survey takes five minutes to complete and will contribute to understanding of this potential patient safety risk. Prevention of Future Death reports have been issued on this subject, but without data it is difficult to identify if this is a specific problem, and if it is, how a big a problem.

    Key points from the analysis include: An estimated 1.2 million people living in private households in the UK (1.9% of the population) were experiencing self-reported Long Covid (symptoms persisting for more than four weeks after the first suspected coronavirus infection that were not explained by something else) as of 31 October 2021; this is consistent with the 1.2 million (1.9%) seen as of 2 October 2021. The estimates presented in this analysis relate to self-reported Long Covid, as experienced by study participants who responded to a representative survey. Of people wit

    The report makes five recommendations: Create an induction offer for named Health Inequality leads, including role guides and examples of actions to be taken. Use national and local action learning sets, which are already in place in some areas, for named Health Inequality leads. Create a repository of high-quality evidence, knowledge resources, methods and regularly updated case studies that reflect the progress that’s being made. Commit to a long-term policy focus and a cross-government strategy that places addressing inequalities at the heart of system development.

    The Royal College of Physicians calls for the NHS to take the opportunity to address the consultant shortage as the UK begins to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. Key findings of the census Only 52% of posts advertised were filled. For the past eight years, barely half of advertised consultant posts were filled, mostly due to a lack of suitable applicants. 36% of consultants described being in control of their workload only ‘sometimes’ or ‘almost never’. 38% said that they worked excessive hours or had an excessive workload ‘almost always’ or ‘most of the time’. 35% o

    Digital tools are a way to empower people and transform the way they receive and engage with health care services. In this way, digital tools contribute to the NHS long term plan commitment to a more concerted and systematic approach to reducing health inequalities and addressing unwarranted variation in care. 'Disruptive innovation' refers to technologies which address an unmet clinical need for the NHS, or which significantly improve current treatment options, and which are likely to be disruptive to current service delivery or lead to a step change in established care pathways in the UK.

    This report analysed the survey responses of 8,119 people currently providing care in the UK. It highlights the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on unpaid carers' lives because of the increased amount of care they are having to provide, and the knock-on affect this has on other areas of life. Carers UK estimates that an additional 4.5 million people became unpaid carers in March 2020 due to the pandemic. The report makes a number of recommendations to the Government relating to: carers and their finances, including increasing the carers allowance and changing eligibility for other

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

    In her report, the coroner highlights two matters of concern in this case: Initial delay in seeing a doctor Mr Collinson was not seen by a Doctor until eight hours after he arrived at hospital. The reason given for this was that the department was highly pressured on this date, and although a junior doctor had assigned the case to them by "clicking", that doctor had not in fact been able to see Mr Collinson. He did not "unclick" the patient and therefore other doctors who may have had capacity were not aware that Mr Collinson had not been seen. The coroner expressed concerns that

    The COVID-19 crisis triggered high levels of anxiety and depression among doctors in the UK, Italy and Spain, a new study has found The research of 5,000 survey responses, across the three countries, found Italian doctors were most likely to have suffered during the crisis last year. The study, published in PLOS ONE, measured the mental wellbeing of doctors in Catalonia (Spain), Italy and the UK during June, November and December 2020. It found that around one in four medical doctors in Italy had experienced symptoms of anxiety in June and December 2020, with around one in five

    We are currently developing the Open Registry infrastructure in South West England, and are bringing together medical device manufacturers (from the world's largest to the smallest) and NHS trusts, with their surgeons that already have relationships with specific manufacturers. Using the system: a patient example Imagine that you are in a consultation with your surgeon, who advises that the mitral valve in your heart needs to be repaired. Your surgeon advises that this procedure can be done with minimally invasive surgery. They recommend using Device-X and you ask, "Why, what evidence
