Bed shortages lead to patient 'harm' in South Tees - BBC News
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which regulates and inspects health and social care services in England, visited the hospitals in January and February.

It said: "Harm had occurred to patients from three serious incidents because critical care beds were not available.

"Staff were not reporting staffing shortages and their impact, and infection control breaches were due to the service not being able to isolate patients with an infection."

The CQC said its inspectors "found a lack of assurance that nurse staffing levels were appropriate to safely care for patients".

It added: "Whilst leaders were aware of some of the risks, issues and challenges they were not always acted upon in an effective or timely manner."

Hospital 'abused' vulnerable adults in Durham - BBC News
The 17-bed hospital is one of scores of such units in England that provide care for just below 2,300 adults with learning disabilities and autism. [...] Dr Paul Lelliott, deputy chief inspector of hospitals at the CQC, told Panorama: "On this occasion it is quite clear that we did not pick up the abuse that was happening at Whorlton Hall.

"All I can do is apologise deeply to the people concerned."

The Department for Health and Social Care said it treated allegations of abuse with the "utmost seriousness", but could not comment any further because of the police investigation.

Many are detained under the Mental Health Act.


The Panorama findings come eight years after abuse was uncovered at another hospital for people with learning disabilities, Winterbourne View, near Bristol.

After that programme, the then prime minister, David Cameron, promised the mistreatment of patients would never happen again.

UK's 'cruel and harmful policies' lack regard for child hunger, says NGO | Society | The Guardian
'Broken' care system for most vulnerable
Patients with mental health problems, autism and learning disabilities are being let down by a "broken" care system, a report warns.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) says it knows of at least 62 adults and children that have been living in segregation in mental health hospitals for long periods of time.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who commissioned the work, said he was appalled by the distressing stories.

He promised cases would be reviewed.

The CQC found some of the wards were not suitable environments for people with autism and many staff lacked the necessary training and skills to work with patients with complex needs and challenging behaviour.

NHS pressures causing avoidable harm to 500 patients a year - report | Society | The Guardian

May's extra cash for NHS is not enough, says spending watchdog | Society | The Guardian
NAO’s Sir Amyas Morse warns more is needed to meet needs of a changing population [...] But Morse said the funding increase would only serve to maintain current service levels and would not be enough to meet the needs of a rapidly changing demographic. // &! Tory councils join demand for tax increases to fund social care services - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jul/01/tory-councils-call-tax-to-fund-social-care - An astonishing nine in every 10 local authorities say that taxation must now be part of the solution in securing the viability of adult social care, according to a comprehensive survey of council leaders and senior figures responsible for care.

Concerns have been growing as a result of another delay to government proposals on resolving the crisis and complaints that pledged funding for care has been diverted to the NHS. // &!

Mental health services for the young is NHS's 'silent catastrophe' | Society | The Guardian
The failings have led to high staff turnover, poor morale and poor working conditions. One child psychotherapist, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I am considering leaving the NHS as I am worried it is no longer safe to practise.

“It is tragic to witness the demise of a once-flourishing and truly multi-disciplinary specialist Camhs. My skills are going to waste. [...] This year, the NHs watchdog the Care Quality Commission rated 39% (26 services) of specialist Camhs as requiring improvement. Those surveyed by the ACP were asked whether they could see any evidence of the government’s claim of making “one of the biggest expansion of services in Europe” – 93 % of respondents said they saw no evidence of this. &! https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jun/29/nhs-chief-major-ramp-up-of-childrens-mental-health-services-needed

Bev Humphrey: ‘The underfunding of the NHS is almost conspiratorial’ | Society | The Guardian
Humphrey believes the health service is now close to breaking point and that government policy is to blame. “The chronic underfunding of the NHS is almost conspiratorial,” she says. “The way it has been starved of money for the last seven years is scandalous. We haven’t got to this decade to find everyone is suddenly iller. I fear the government will turn around in a few years and say, ‘Look, we have given you money and it hasn’t worked – we need a new system.’ I am concerned this would lead to a compulsory insurance model.” It would create a two-tier system, she feels. “The NHS is not only a very efficient service, it’s also clinically excellent. If we move away from that [a service that is free at the point of need] there’s no going back. What you would end up with is very poor quality services for the poorest and those who need it most.”
