142. Optimising maternity services and maternal and newborn outcomes in a pandemic A rapid analytic scoping review

women and newborn infants continue to require care during the current COVID-19 pandemic. When staff and services are under extreme stress there is a real risk of increasing avoidable harm, including an increased risk of infection and reductions in the overall quality of care. Safety, quality, and avoiding harm must be key priorities in decision- making. Review questions Three related review questions were addressed. All considered safety, quality and minimising avoidable harm in the provision (...) , psychological, and social vulnerabilities. Women and newborn infants therefore require access to quality midwifery care, and to multidisciplinary services and to additional care for complications including emergencies if needed.

144. Estimate of the economic costs and literature review of the benefits of dedicated research time for Hospital Consultants in the NHS

by the Academy and also by snowballing of references from literature reviewed. A total of 28 eligible papers were identified through these techniques. ii 3. RESULTS From a review of existing guidelines and other literature it is apparent that although the Consultant Contract provides for ‘supporting clinical activities’, which could include dedicated time for research, in reality most Consultants do not have time to carry out research on top of their requirement to provide direct clinical care. The exception (...) is for Consultant Clinical Academics whose contracts allow for 0.5 whole time equivalent (WTE) academic activities. It was, therefore, assumed that to provide 20% of Consultants with 20% of dedicated research time would require backfilling of an equivalent amount of time for direct clinical care. The cost estimate was made on the basis that an average Teaching Hospital Trust has around 415 Consultants and an average District General Hospital Trust has around 182 Consultants.

In addition, we need to consider the small possibility that the facility for cancer services may be compromised due to a combination of factors including staff sickness and supply chain shortages among others.

147. Home and dry: The need for decent homes in later life

non-decent homes could be repaired for £1,000. Previous funding to address housing disrepair, such as means-tested grants for lower income homeowners, has been withdrawn in recent years. In 1983-84 the national allocated funding for private-sector housing improvement and repair was £1.1 billion. By 2010-11 this was down to £317 million, and then ceased completely the following financial year. Although people on a low income are more likely to live in non-decent homes, the ability to pay (...) determinant of health Housing is a key determinant of health, with the supply, quality and design of homes all impacting on population health and wellbeing.
