Objective Major lower limb amputation is the highest risk lower limb procedure in vascular surgery. Despite this, few high quality studies have examined factors contributing to mortality. The aim was to identify independent risk factors for peri-operative morbidity and mortality and develop reliable models for estimating risk. Methods All patients undergoing lower limb amputation above the ankle entered into the UK National Vascular Registry (January 2014–December 2016) were included. Missing da...

Purpose Patient safety failures are recognised as a global threat to public health, yet remain a leading cause of death internationally. Vulnerable children are inversely more in need of high-quality primary health and social-care but little is known about the quality of care received. Using national patient safety data, this study aimed to characterise primary care-related safety incidents among vulnerable children. Methods This was a cross-sectional mixed methods study of a national database o...

### What you need to know Between 10% and 43% of patients presenting to emergency departments can be managed in primary care, according to estimates from observational studies.1234 Increasing demands on emergency healthcare systems have led to the development of different healthcare models, including “streaming” patients presenting with non-urgent conditions to primary care services.5 These strategies are intended to improve patient flow and reduce crowding in the emergency department. In 2017 N...

Background Assessing genetic lifetime risk for prostate cancer has been proposed as a means of risk stratification to identify those for whom prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing is likely to be most valuable. This project aimed to test the effect of introducing a genetic test for lifetime risk of prostate cancer in general practice on future PSA testing. Methods and findings We performed a cluster randomized controlled trial with randomization at the level of general practices (73 in each of...

Abstract Objectives This trial tested the effectiveness of a self-administered web-based decision aid, targeted at citizens with lower educational attainment, on informed choice about colorectal cancer screening participation as assessed by group levels of knowledge, attitudes and uptake. Methods The randomised controlled trial was conducted among 2,702 screening-naive Danish citizens, 53-74 years old, with lower educational attainment. Baseline questionnaire respondents (62%) were allocated to ...

Emergency ambulance services are integral to providing a service for those with unplanned urgent and life-threatening health conditions. However, high use of the service by a small minority of patients is a concern. Our objectives were to describe: service-wide and local policies or pathways for people classified as Frequent Caller; call volume; and results of any audit or evaluation. We conducted a national survey of current practice in ambulance services in relation to the management of people...

Background Diagnostic error occurs more frequently in the emergency department than in regular in-patient hospital care. We sought to characterise the nature of reported diagnostic error in hospital emergency departments in England and Wales from 2013 to 2015 and to identify the priority areas for intervention to reduce their occurrence.
