More than 10,000 people back BMA call for increased GP funding More than 10,000 people have signed a BMA petition demanding that GP practices receive the funding they require. The petition calls on the UK Government ‘to provide the funding and commitment needed to urgently increase the number of GPs, practice nurses and other practice staff and to improve the premises in which they work’. It says this ‘will help GP practices in England to meet the growing needs of people in our communities, providing the care we and our families need’. The petition was set up less than a month ago as part of the BMA’s Support Your Surgery campaign, which aims to rally support for GP practices.

Before the pandemic began, there was a shortage of around 40,000 full-time Nurses in the NHS. During the pandemic, the NHS has been on an international recruitment drive; more than 8000 overseas Nurses were recruited between the Summer of 2020 and March 2021 alone.

As part of this, a commitment has been made to expand access to digital clinical safety training across the health and care workforce. On World Patient Safety Day, NHSX, in collaboration with NHS Digital and NHS England and NHS Improvement, has published its first-ever Digital Clinical Safety Strategy. Priorities listed in the document included improving the recording of patient safety incidents including those related to digital failures and rolling out new training opportunities for staff on the topic of digital clinical safety.

But the sharp rise in the use of these single-use plastics is not without consequence. Shocking statistics about the environmental effects of PPE (personal protective equipment) – and the growing momentum of the green lobby ahead of the COP26 climate summit in November – are prompting fresh calls for a greener NHS. Doctors leaders used the BMA annual representative meeting this week to set out a wide-ranging green agenda, encompassing everything from recycling to public transport to fossil fuels. The effect of the climate crisis on human health and wellbeing was a constant refrain.

On-going stress and constant pressure in the workplace can often lead nurses and doctors to suffer from exhaustion and in some cases, burnout. Mental health is equally as important as physical health and as a doctor, nurse or medical professional it can be hard to self-diagnose burnout.

Once again, we would like to say a big thank you to all the hard-working clinicians we work with. Average GP pay rose 2.8% in England in 2019/20 Average GP pay in England rose by 2.8% in 2019/20 - outstripping a 1.9% increase in Wales, but well behind the growth of 4.3% in Scotland and 6.5% in Northern Ireland, official figures reveal. Across partners and salaried GPs in England, average income before tax averaged £100,700 in 2019/20 - up from £98,000 in the previous financial year, according to figures published by NHS Digital. The figure - which includes income across GPs working full-time and part-time - remains the highest in the UK. The average income for partners on GMS and PMS contracts in England was £121,800 in 2019/20.

The regulator said the drug Ronapreve had been shown to prevent infection and reduce the need for hospital treatment. It was famously used as part of the suite of experimental medicines given to US President Donald Trump last year. However, it is very expensive and likely to be reserved for those at greatest risk of becoming severely ill.

The survey of almost 400 GPs – carried out in May – uncovered 301 full-time equivalent (FTE) posts are vacant, out of the 2,142 that respondents said their practices require. The high vacancy rate – at 14% – is a slight improvement on the 15% unfilled GP posts revealed the last time Pulse carried out the survey in 2018 – which was the worst on record, though did include vacancies from across the UK. In 2021, among the 369 GPs taking part in the survey, 56% (207) said they had no vacancies, but the remainder were carrying mostly one vacancy (27%), or two (8%).

A new study, published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials today, explored the effectiveness of 11 masks, including four respirators, three medical and four handmade face coverings, within a submicron range. The laboratory investigation, carried out by air pollution experts at the university, also sought to uncover how long a mask should be worn. Findings showed that, over time, the filters of a face mask can start to become clogged by aerosol particles, while breathing resistance also increases as the masks are worn.

Senior doctors in England to be consulted on NHS pay offer Senior doctors in England will be asked whether they want to consider industrial action over the 3% pay rise offered by the government. The British Medical Association union says tens of thousands of hospital consultants will be contacted and previously said industrial action may be considered if senior doctors were not given at least a 5% rise. The Department of Health was criticised over its previous stance that only a 1% rise was affordable. But earlier this week, ministers announced a 3% pay rise offer following a recommendation from an independent pay review body. Read more here (BBC News) New service to answer patients' Covid vaccination records queries Patients in England will soon be able to access a dedicated service to answer their specific queries about Covid vaccination records. The service is expected to go live in August, with NHS Digital to provide more information when available. The news comes as GPs have complained that patient phone calls about accessing the NHS App ‘Covid Pass’ feature were adding to their workload. Over 1.3 million new people have registered with the app to show their vaccine status since the feature was announced on 7 May, according to the Government.

Ms Pritchard, currently NHS England chief operating officer, has a long health service career behind her - starting as a graduate management trainee in 1997 and moving on to a number of other health service management roles. Ms Pritchard, who will take on control of the £130bn annual NHS budget, said: 'I am honoured to lead the NHS, particularly as the first woman chief executive of an organisation whose staff are more than three quarters female. Read more here (GP Online) Challenging the CQC - Advice for GP practices Challenging the CQC can be a daunting prospect for GP practices, especially given that GPs and their practice managers are so busy. Interactions with the CQC can be laborious and require focus to address and respond to the plethora of enforcement action the regulator has at its disposal. However, it is important that practices do challenge where there are grounds to do so, as a failure to do this could have a material impact on the future of the practice. The CQC’s model of regulation is in the process of transitioning so that the focus is more on those services that pose a greater risk. Read more here (GP Online) Real shift is seen in practice for LGBTQ+ nurses A group of nurses and health professionals have spoken to Nursing Times about the progress made in ensuring NHS staff from the LGBTQ+ community feel safe and supported at work. Discrimination and inequalities do still exist, and it is important to “shine a light” on disparities, increase visibility and hold people to account over failings, they said. But they also largely agreed that an increasing presence of LGBTQ+ staff networks in the NHS were helping to drive positive change and minimise feelings of “isolation” experienced by nurses and colleagues in the LGBTQ+ community.

Medical Industry News NHS nurses gain more flexible working rights under new agreement A range of restrictions on NHS flexible working requests are to be scrapped, following an agreement between health service employers and unions aimed at boosting work-life balance and staff retention. Under the deal, nurses working in the health service will be able to make an unlimited number of applications for flexible working per year, instead of the current one. They will also be able to submit applications without having to justify requests or provide specific reasons.

The petition was launched just five days ago on Monday and calls for the title of “nurse” to be protected in UK law so that only those qualified and registered can use it. Currently, the title “registered nurse” is protected but “nurse” alone is not, meaning anyone can legally call themselves a nurse.

The data, from Kinesis Advice & Guidance (A&G), involved 3,086 GPs and 850 consultants using its technology and revealed it cut the number of hospital appointments by 63%. Kinesis Advice & Guidance’s technology works by facilitating GPs to request information directly from consultants, if they’re unsure of how to treat a patient.

Posting on twitter NHS England’s top nurse Ruth May said the health service was at its best when its workforce reflected the community it serves. England’s chief nurse said since it was founded in 1948, the NHS and its patients “have benefitted from the skills of health and care professionals drawn from more than 200 nationalities. Read more here (Independent) CQC plans to carry out remote checks on GP practices ‘every month’ The CQC is planning to carry out remote checks on each GP practice every month to assess its risk to patients and publish an update on its website if the practice is deemed as a low risk, starting from next month. The CQC said it is ‘moving on’ from its transitional monitoring approach – that was brought in during the Covid pandemic – to a new system that includes a ‘monthly check of the information and data’ it holds on GP practices. The new monitoring approach has been piloted in the Midlands and East of England since 15 June, but will extend to the rest of the country from July.
