The vulnerable require support - genuine support - they deserve to be supported financially in the community.  Mentally ill - these vulnerable individuals should not be fighting for benefits - this is their right.  It would be refreshing to stop independent assessment services whom appear the only aim is to save money at the expense of vulnerable individuals.  These benefits that these mentally ill individuals genuinely and rightly deserve.

Having worked in the NHS for a year now, and particularly in the role I'm now in (supporting two senior Commissioning Managers) I can see a lot of time wasted across component organisations within the NHS in sourcing and sharing data. Providers supply data to Commissioners, Commissioning support Units, and to NHSE datasets via various methods. Commissioners then supply data thy have received from suppliers and vice versa. The methods used for reporting and accessing data vary too, from...

The Government should make statutory in law for employers to make mandatory, flexible shifts across the NHS and for Safe Staffing - 4 patients maximum to one RN. Nurses are being expected to discharge patients ASAP due to the overwhelming influx of patients with chronic complex age-related, life-style related illnesses, within a system which was originally designed for acute care. The mother of all 'mis-matches,'

With budget constraints and ever increasing demand for more staff, one of the key ways to reduce workload permanently is the introduction of automation. A key issue across Trusts is there are lot of paperwork based processes that are extremely manual, and many have a patchwork system comprising of a mixture of both electronic and paper-based systems, often requiring staff manually scan on documents or re-duplicate work. This can often be due to electronic record systems being proprietary...

'INCLUSION' of CARERS in the Conversation, we have 'KNOWLEDGE' and EXPERIENCE, we KNOW how 'INTEGRATION' should work, and the 'CARE ACT' is there for EVERYONE to refer. The NHS report 'WITHOUT CARERS the NHS would collapse'? Life would be much improved if we were CONSIDERED 'part of the SYSTEM'! and included in 'GETTING THE BASICS RIGHT' U have FAILED on the 'CORE CHALLENGE.

The Trust I work for is all about saving money, however, the way they are going about it is awful.  Since we got our new Chief Exec, money has been found to employ more and more of the most senior staff, with new office, secretaries and equipment etc.  The amount of our Very senior managers has almost doubled now, and there is always another role being advertised.  However, down at the bottom end of the pay scales. I know a band 4 who has been threatened with demotion, due to not wanting to...

A single software should be developed to be used nationally by NHS providers across all health disciplines. This will allow efficient transfer of information and notes across all providers. This can help to prevent safeguarding issues also. This is an extreme challenge, made even more complicated with GDPR regulations, but working with software developers and representatives from each health discipline (pharmacist, GP, dentists, physiotherapist etc) will help to ensure all are able to...

This is a small difference, but an easy one to fix. NHSMail requires we use regularly changing, easily forgettable passwords. This is a time-wasting, irritating faff for users and it isn't even in line with the Government's own security advice, or guidelines from Microsoft who provide the software. https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/collection/passwords?curPage=/collection/passwords/updating-your-approach...

Allow staff to use hospital pharmacy for personal prescriptions to free up time outside of work. This would mean that collecting a prescription will be simple, especially if you are on shifts. With prescriptions going electronic, even making sure repeats could be done would be great.

Over the last few years there has been a steady shift towards offices that are hot-desk only with a clear desk policy. I think this has a tangible, negative effect on team working and individual mental health. These are the advantages of permanent desks - 1. Individuals develop friendships with the people geographically close to them, this makes coming into work more fun. It also increases efficiency as things get progressed quicker by person and without the communication challenges of...
