Vascular surgery exposure prone procedure (EPP) categorisation: Advice from the United Kingdom Advisory Panel for Healthcare Workers Infected with Bloodborne Viruses (UKAP) – Public Health England

The UK Advisory Panel for Healthcare Workers Infected with Bloodborne Viruses (UKAP) specialist working group has compiled a list of exposure prone procedures (EPPs) and non-EPPs carried out in vascular surgery.  Each procedure has been categorised into the level of risk of bleed-back (EPP level 0 to 3), where injury to the healthcare worker could result in the worker’s blood contaminating the patient’s open tissues. This list is not exhaustive of all procedures carried out in vascular surgery, and is to be used as a guide only.

Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) data report for NHS trusts. The WRES was introduced in 2015 to reveal and thereby help close the gaps in workplace inequalities between black and minority ethnic (BME) and white staff working in the NHS. This report presents three years’ of WRES data against all nine WRES indicators of workplace experience and opportunity. It shows trends over time regarding the level of progress made by NHS trusts across the country, as well as shining a light on those areas where further concerted support and action is required. Some organisations are embracing the agenda well and are continuing to act on plans for improvement, yet at the same time, we know much more work is needed.

Patients’ views on making best use of GP premises – The Patient’s Association

Report that finds that patients are concerned about various internal and external aspects of their local GP practice premises. The report outlines patients’ views based on an online survey and four focus groups aiming to establish the importance of the physical environment in shaping people’s experiences of primary care.  Confidentiality emerged as a key issue raised by patients, particularly the risk of being overheard at the reception desk or when telephoning practices. Disability access and exacerbated by poor building design and access were also identified e.g.:

  • No lift and the corridors are narrow
  • Doctors having to come downstairs to see patients
  • Difficulties in moving around the buildings in wheelchairs
  • Difficulties in being able to get into the building easily or get to the reception desk due to lack of space to turn and manoeuvre.

The report also finds that repsondents found their GP practice was a poor environment that made them feel anxious or stressed.

Welfare trends report – Office for Budget Responsibility

Report that  focuses on disability benefits – payments that contribute to the extra costs associated with daily living and mobility for people with disabling conditions.

It has two purposes. First, to explain the evolution of spending on disability benefits over the past fifty years, with more emphasis on recent years. In particular, we look at trends in spending on working-age adults, where the system has been undergoing major reform as disability living allowance (DLA) is replaced by personal independence payment (PIP). Second, it evaluates the effects of PIP on the public finances, which have differed significantly from those envisaged at the inception of the reform, leading to systematic under-forecasting of PIP and working-age DLA spending since the former was introduced in 2013.
