The state of the NHS provider sector: November 2016
This survey of NHS trust chairs and chief executives has revealed rising concerns over the growing NHS workforce gap. 172 NHS leaders responded to the survey and only 27 per cent of these respondents reported confidence in having the right staff numbers, quality and skill mix to deliver high-quality care. The report provides examples of where trusts are improving quality of care and increasing productivity despite financial constraints and growing demand. The report highlights that trusts are able to deliver when given achievable tasks, but warns that the sustainability of services is at risk.
A recent survey of BMA members in England finds that 84 per cent of respondents report that unchecked and growing workload pressures are undermining their ability to provide safe and quality care. Of this figure, 57 per cent described their daily workloads as ‘unmanageable’ with a further 27 per cent saying that excessive pressures are directly impacting standards.
Frontline pharmacists: making a difference for people with long term conditions
This report argues the case for community pharmacists being able to routinely prescribe medicines for people with long term conditions and refer them directly to other healthcare professionals to ease the overwhelming demand facing the NHS. Currently, the care of people with long term conditions accounts for half of all GP appointments, 64 per cent of outpatient appointments and 70 per cent of all health and social care spending. The report estimates that up to £500 million of extra value could be generated if medicines were used in a more optimal manner in five therapeutic areas: asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, vascular disease and schizophrenia.
Building capacity: realising the potential of community pharmacy assets for improving the public's health
This report, produced in conjunction with Public Health England, identifies a number of opportunities and challenges for community pharmacy teams to further support the public’s health. It provides a snapshot of the extent to which pharmacy teams are supporting the public’s health, the opportunities and challenges they may face and what can be done to address the challenges. The report includes findings from a survey of over 600 community pharmacy staff and found that 74 per cent of respondents think that the sector is underutilised, but 51 per cent note that capacity in terms of staff numbers and appropriate facilities is a barrier to delivering a wider range of services.
