Following work with clinicians and recommendations from the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch’s June 2018 report: Investigation into the implantation of wrong prostheses during joint replacement surgery, we have amended the NatSSIPs prosthesis verification standard. This change will help prevent further incidents involving the wrong selection of a prosthesis for implant.
The themes in this survey have been drawn from interviews with system leaders and key reports such as the Kerr review and the Smith review.
Your feedback will support our aims to improve leadership culture and make the NHS the best place to work two key focuses of the Interim NHS People Plan.
We have published our response to the consultation on proposed changes to agency rules, which will restrict the use of off-framework agency staff for certain clinical and non-clinical roles. We are supporting trusts ahead of the changes to move affected workers to approved agencies, where possible.
Changes will take effect from Monday 16 September.
Friday 28 June, 12.30pm-1.15pm.
