    Climate change: a health emergency The NHS has a huge carbon footprint, producing around 25 million tonnes of carbon a year – equivalent to all the emissions from Sri Lanka! Carbon dioxide emissions attributable to the NHS in England are greater than the annual emissions of all the aircraft leaving Heathrow, and if healthcare was a country, it would be the fifth largest polluter! The NHS declared climate change, ‘a health emergency’ – it undermines the foundations of good health, deepens health inequalities and threatens to undermine the gains made in public health over the last 50 years.

    One of the NHS’s biggest hospital trusts is facing major problems after its IT system failed because of the extreme temperatures earlier this week. Guy’s and St Thomas’ trust (GSTT) in London has had to cancel operations, postpone appointments and divert seriously ill patients to other hospitals in the capital as a result of its IT meltdown. The situation means that doctors cannot see patients’ medical notes remotely and are having to write down the results of all examinations by hand. They are also unable to remotely access the results of diagnostic tests such as X-rays and CT and M

    Being in a productive and supportive work environment is linked to better mental health. However, those experiencing mental health problems are often either excluded from the workplace or not supported appropriately when in work, according to new guidance from the Royal College of Psychiatrists. As many as one in six people of working age are diagnosed with a mental health condition. Mental health problems are a leading cause of absence from work, but ‘good’ work can improve overall wellbeing. This is achieved by improving self-esteem, feeling useful, building a routine, and importantly,

    Recommendations For Government Giving workers with mental health problems early access to occupationally focused healthcare, which should include helping them to obtain, remain in, or return to, appropriate work. Expanding vocational support services in both NHS and community settings for patients with mental health problems to help them remain in, or return to, work. Improving access to flexible benefits and sick leave for patients with chronic fluctuating health conditions to help patients remain in, or return to, work. Ensuring that all employers (including the

    A spike in Covid absences and the extended heatwave have left NHS hospitals and ambulance services struggling to cope. The hot weather is also driving more patients to A&E departments, and callers are being urged not to use 999 except in serious emergencies. All 10 ambulance trusts in England are on black alert, the highest level, while health leaders warn that “ill-equipped” hospital buildings are struggling to store medicines correctly amid the abnormally high temperatures. Martin Flaherty, managing director of the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, said: “The NHS

    Patients may be turned away at A&E in Portsmouth as the UK’s heatwave drives extreme hospital pressures. Staffing pressures coupled with additional strain from the current heatwave have forced Portsmouth Hospitals University Foundation Trust to declare a critical incident. The trust said it only had space in its emergency department for patients with life-threatening illnesses and critical conditions and so would be forced to redirect other patients elsewhere. In a statement, Portsmouth Hospitals University FT said: “Our emergency department remains full with patients and we

    Senior doctors in the radiology services at the University Hospitals North Midlands Trust have reported a ‘toxic’ culture and feelings that managers had been ‘excessively authoritarian’. In a letter sent by medical director John Oxtoby on 13 July, consultants who had been interviewed as part of an external review, have reported the culture within the department was “unhealthy and even toxic, and that this was impacting to some degree nearly all of the consultants interviewed” “It is clear from this work that as well as the need to tackle working relationships and some behaviours in t

    In April of last year, many people in America came out and cheered for the healthcare workers fighting to save lives during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, but now, nurses across the US are holding strikes due to staff shortages and inadequate equipment amid the pandemic. “Most of us felt like we went from heroes to zeroes quickly,” says Dominique Muldoon, a nurse for more than 20 years at Saint Vincent’s hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts. Muldoon, co-chair of the local bargaining unit has also said nurses are going home crying in their cars, working through breaks and staying

    The authors found that fire occurs when the three elements of the fire triad, fuel, oxidiser and ignition, coincide. Surgical fires are unusual in the absence of an oxygen-enriched atmosphere. The ignition source is most commonly diathermy but lasers carry a relatively greater risk. The majority of fires occur during head and neck surgery. This is due to the presence of oxygen and the extensive use of lasers. The risk of fire can be reduced with an awareness of the risk and good communication. Surgery will always carry a risk of fire. Reducing this risk requires a concerted effort from al

    In total, 1742 nurses responded to questions about working conditions on their last shift. The authors found that nearly two-thirds of respondents were demoralised. Nurses were five times more likely to feel demoralised if they reported missed care. A perceived lack of support had nearly the same impact on the level of demoralisation. These findings were reflected in the qualitative findings where registered nurses reported how staffing issues and failures in leadership left them feeling disempowered and demoralised. In order to reduce the negative impact of dissatisfaction and improve re
