Senior doctors will be consulted on taking industrial action if the government’s 1% pay rise offer is not improved, though they have vowed not to leave patients “unsupported.” The BMA said on Friday 2 July that an overtime ban by consultants was a possibility to protect consultants’ pay, which had fallen by nearly 30% over the past decade. “For the government to be suggesting a below-inflation pay award of 1% when inflation’s been projected at 4% is absolutely shocking,” Vishal Sharma, deputy ch...

GPs may be underreporting long covid say researchers who analysed 58 million patients’ primary care records and found a much lower prevalence than previous survey estimates. An analysis of pseudonymised electronic health records of patients in England found only 40 cases of long covid reported per 100 000 people.1 This is a much lower prevalence than estimates using questionnaire research methods such as the React-2 study which estimated that around two million people have the condition.2 The an...

While we support the principles of “levelling up” funding for practices in deprived areas,1 the analysis failed to explore fundamental flaws in current allocation, namely its application to too wide a geographical area and that shorter life expectancy may reduce capitation. Current approaches to allocation have been based at primary care organisation (PCO) level, using a complicated formula that includes an age …

Covid-19 booster vaccinations should be offered in England from September 2021, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has advised. But some experts have questioned the necessity and the practicalities of the plan. JCVI’s interim advice,1 which will be updated by September after further data analysis, could lead to millions of the people who are most vulnerable to covid-19 being offered the booster vaccination in a two stage approach alongside the annual flu vaccination programme. J...

A locum doctor who left his post at a hospital emergency department without notice to collect takeout food has been struck off by a medical practitioners tribunal, which found that he forged third party statements sent to the tribunal about his own disciplinary case. Peter Kizito also tried to deceive two prospective employers by using a false email address and forging references from a former colleague, the tribunal found. He told colleagues he had worked at a …

The State of New York’s lawsuit against US opioid makers and distributors1 opened on 29 June without several expected defendants, as five companies including Johnson & Johnson removed themselves at the last minute by agreeing to pay out-of-court settlements. The big four US pharmacy chains— CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Walmart—also agreed to settle out of court in the days leading up to the trial, which is the first major opioid lawsuit to be heard before a jury in the US. Walgreens settled onl...
