Solidarity breaks out over NHS Long Term Plan

Solidarity breaks out over NHS Long Term Plan

Friday, 15 March 2019

Following the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan the government and GPs agreed a new contract, which involves a number of substantial changes. One of the mainstays – designed to allow the plan to be realised – is the introduction of an army of medical professionals other than doctors to work within practices and act as first point of contact for patients needing their particular skills.

That includes thousands of physiotherapists who will deal with patients presenting with musculoskeletal problems, which currently account for around one fifth of GP appointments. The idea is it will free up GPs to deal with problems requiring their generalist skills. It is also expected to substantially red...

Tyre expert’s evidence in multi-fatal accident supports change to tyre laws

Tyre expert’s evidence in multi-fatal accident supports change to tyre laws

Friday, 22 March 2019

A campaign to ban the use of tyres more than 10 years old on public service and commercial vehicles has moved a step nearer to success, with the announcement by the Transport Secretary that there will be a consultation on the issue.

The campaign – named Tyred – has attracted considerable attention in the North of England since its launch by Frances Molloy, whose son Michael was one of three people killed in 2012 when the minibus they were travelling in on the way home from a music festival veered off the road and crashed.

Outcome measures: assessing the impact of rehabilitation

Outcome measures: assessing the impact of rehabilitation

Friday, 22 March 2019

Lawyers must adopt a pro-active approach in their on-going support of seriously injured clients, taking ownership of assessing the impact of rehabilitation.

Andy Shaw (pictured), of Higgs & Sons, says: “By taking this action approach, the lawyer will ensure that everyone engaged in the client’s rehabilitation can show that the support and treatment provided has best met the client’s needs to maximise the rehabilitation outcomes.”

Patient reported outcome measures, or PROMS, are an essential requirement in all areas of healthcare in determining the impact of treatment. These measures are routinely used in treating those with long-term neurological conditions, such as stroke and traumatic br...

Building higher casts shadow on rights to light

Building higher casts shadow on rights to light

Friday, 22 March 2019

The content of the Chancellor’s Spring Statement washed over many in the property profession as the Brexit storm continued.

But the decision by Philip Hammond to allow upwards extensions through Permitted Development (PD) Rights is significant news. The announcement, which forms part of a package of initiatives to breathe life into the ailing high street, is set to go ahead via regulations due this autumn and followed an extremely contentious consultation earlier this year. Daniel Wade (pictured), Rights of Light Director at Trident Building Consultancy, explains what this could mean for property owners.

In the absence of a planning process to scrutinise projects that will add to building heig...

More psychologists are in court – and that’s a good thing!

More psychologists are in court – and that’s a good thing!

Wednesday, 24 October 2018

Vulnerable offenders with mental health, alcohol and substance abuse problems are increasingly being diverted from short-term custodial sentences and towards treatment that aims to tackle the causes of their offending.

In the pilot areas – Birmingham, Plymouth, Sefton, Milton Keynes and Northampton – psychologists are working collaboratively with the existing panels of justice and health officials. Together, the professionals ensure that magistrates and judges have the information they need to determine whether an offender should be required to receive treatment for their mental health, alcohol or drug issues.

How long should a hip or knee replacement last? Now we know

How long should a hip or knee replacement last? Now we know

Friday, 15 March 2019

Researchers from the Musculoskeletal Research Unit at the University of Bristol have found that eight out of 10 total knee replacements and six out of 10 total hip replacements will still be in place after 25 years. The research, funded by the National Joint Registry and the National Institute for Health Research was published in The Lancet in February.

After reviewing thousands of case studies going back 25 years across six countries, generalisable survival data is now available for the first time to estimate how long hip and knee replacements are likely to last.

AI system can match experts at detecting eye disease

AI system can match experts at detecting eye disease

Wednesday, 24 October 2018

An artificial intelligence (AI) system that can recommend the correct referral decision for over 50 eye diseases as accurately as world-leading experts has been developed by researchers at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The research project was carried out in collaboration with DeepMind Health and University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology.

The breakthrough research, published online by Nature Medicine, describes how machine learning technology has been successfully trained to identify features of eye disease and recommend how patients should be referred for care, using thousands of historic de-personalised eye scans. It is hoped that the technology could one da...

Keeping compliant across the UK: Some differences in environmental legislation

Wednesday, 30 May 2018

In comparison with many other parts of the world, the UK has a commendable record of protecting the environment from damage and for working constructively with engineers and contractors to mitigate the effects of necessary operations, writes Simon Knott (pictured), managing director of environmental consultancy Naturally Compliant.

The relevant legislation is by its nature complex, and busy construction professionals engaged in engineering activities need to be up to speed with what they can and cannot do while remaining compliant with the regulations.

Home Office GDPR exemption risks new Windrush, says Law Society

Thursday, 28 June 2018

The Law Society of England and Wales has criticised the decision to exempt the Home Office from data access rules in the new Data Protection Act, which implements the widely-publicised GDPR. The move will inevitably lead to miscarriages of justice, the society has warned.

Law Society president Joe Egan said the immigration exemption in the legislation stripped accountability from Home Office decision making.
