  1. Mari Isdale, 37, turns to Salford MP and fundraising in her fight for cancer drug Salford resident and fertility unit doctor Mari Isdale, 37 is having to fight on two fronts, not only from the reoccurrence of the cancer she beat three years ago, but now having to fight for funding to continue receiving the life-prolonging bowel cancer drug cetuximab on the NHS. Mari was first diagnosed with cancer in 2015, and after two years of successful treatment with chemotherapy and cetuximab it went into remission in 2018. Sadly, Mari was diagnosed with a reoccurrence in November 2020, but even though resuming cetuximab treatment was recommended by her oncologist, the funding is not available on the NHS. Under NHS England rules, there is a six-week treatment break policy for those who are treated with cetuximab, however for NHS Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, who all adhere to NICE Guidelines, they do not have a six week treatment break rule. Cetuximab is a type of targeted cancer drug. It is also known by its brand name Erbitux. It can be used in the treatment of advanced bowel cancer as well as some head and neck cancers that start in the mouth and throat. It is a type of monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies (MABs) are laboratory made copies of a single antibody which seek out cancer cells by targeting particular proteins on the cell surface. Bowel Cancer UK have questioned the reasoning for the treatment break policy in a letter to the Government in 2018, in which they said: Mari is now having to fundraise the expensive treatment herself and has reached out to her local MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey for help. The MP for Salford and Eccles said: A copy of the letter in .pdf format is attached here: Letter to Health Secretary Matt Hancock from Rebecca Long-Bailey re Six week break policy for cetuximab treatment - Isdale.pdf Mari’s family have set up a Go Fund Me for donations to help her pay for her cetuximab treatment: https://gofund.me/6ee44a6c
  2. Salford has seen a sharp rise in coronavirus infections with its rate as of today standing at 265.4 cases per 100,000 according to latest Public Health England data (a rise of 102%). This now means that Salford has the second highest rate in the region behind Bolton which has seen a 17% drop thanks to increased vaccinations. As of Thursday 10th June, Salford Royal Hospital currently has 28 patients taking up beds due to Covid-19, two of which are being assisted by ventilation. 137,091 residents have been given their first dose of a vaccine, with 93,822 having been administered with the second. There has been a total of 230,913 vaccinations given thus far. The last recorded Covid related death at Salford Royal Hospital was recorded on the 25th of May. There were 131 positive tests recorded today, 687 in the past week, which is a doubling on the previous week. It should be noted that there is usually a delay of up to two weeks before rises in hospitalisations start to increase, as of yet though, hospitalisations remain low. Meanwhile there is talk of up to four-week delay of the June 21st deadline for relaxation of lockdown rules due to the increase in infections as a result of the spread of the Delta (Indian) variant of the virus. The delay would allow for more people to receive their second dose of the vaccine to afford them better protection. Despite increasing infections, hospitalisations and deaths have only increased fractionally, with NHS bosses claiming that their is clear evidence that vaccines have broken the link between rising cases and hospitalisations. Those currently being admitted are generally in younger age groups, or in those who are unvaccinated. Earlier today the vaccine bus took station outside of Morrisons in Eccles, allowing all those eligible (25+) to get their first (Pfizer) jabs, no appointment needed. It is vitally important to have your second vaccine when called up for it, this gives maximum protection. Photo: Salford CCG - Vaccine Bus at Morrisons in Eccles
  3. A former NHS executive and chartered accountant from Manchester has been jailed. A former NHS executive and chartered accountant from Manchester who siphoned almost £1.4 million from several companies, including those that care for vulnerable adults, has been jailed following an extensive six-year investigation. Stephen Day (23/05/1967), of Quiech Mill, Blairgowrie, Scotland, but formally of Aberford, Leeds, was handed the 11 years and 5 months sentence at Leeds Crown Court today (Thursday 15 April 2021) after pleading guilty to 12 counts of fraud offences and theft. Day is also subject to a director's disqualification for nine years. Day, who professed to be a financial turnaround consultant and accountant, would advise businesses on their finances, and worked under more than 20 company names, including Entrusted Group Ltd of The Flint Glass Works, Jersey Street, Manchester. GMP’s Specialist Fraud Investigation Team became aware of fraudulent activity between August 2011 and September 2014 after reports were passed to the force’s Economic Crime Unit by the victims. Alarm bells rang when several companies raised concerns about money disappearing under Day’s management. This included firms such as Asia House Management Company Ltd, which is a residential management company established for an apartment block in Manchester City Centre, Entrusted Health Ltd, Shaping Health International Ltd, Avida Care Limited, which provides home visits to vulnerable adults, and The Royal Bank of Scotland. While in a position of trust and power within these companies, Day would take over financial control of their bank accounts, and large sums of money would go missing. It was in fact being paid into Day's own company accounts instead of suppliers, and Day used false narratives to explain how they got there, including using fake financial accounts to provide to directors at annual general meetings. £1,382,244 million was taken in total. Whilst carrying out these enquiries officers learned that the NHS Counter Fraud Authority had uncovered that Day had also become a financial director for numerous Trusts at the same time, and failed to disclose it to his employers. This included Merseyside Commissioning Support Unit and South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG, both of whom were paying him a full-time salary. The NHSCFA investigated, and co-ordinated with Greater Manchester Police and the CPS, to bring these charges forward to accurately represent his full range of offending. Not only did Day target businesses, but also those he befriended in order to take advantage of. Despite being in a relationship with two men already, Day struck up a romantic connection with a woman claiming he was a widower, and over the course of several months in 2014 while under police investigation, convinced her under false pretences to pay for meals and transfer him money to the total of around £5,000. It’s not clear exactly where Day spent his ill-gotten gains, but detectives do know he purchased several properties in Scotland, took a holiday in Dubai and he was also in the middle of refurbishing an 45 acre estate in Scotland which had its own salmon fishing area on the River Annan. It's believed he's has full refurbished another property in South Africa too, in order to let out as a holiday rental. Detective Sergeant Stuart Donohue, who has led on the investigation since the beginning, said: Richard Rippin, Head of Operations of the NHSCFA, said:
  4. Police attended what they say was a small demonstration regarding public sector health pay at around 12noon today, Sunday 7 March 2021 in Manchester City Centre. A crowd of around 40 people had gathered in contravention of current lockdown legislation, in particular legislation concerning protests. GMP officers say that they sought to engage early with the organisers and those gathering to highlight the unlawfulness of their activity, using the first of the four Es approach - engaging, explaining and encouraging compliance with legislation. Most people thereafter dispersed. One woman aged 65 was arrested for failing to provide details having refused the opportunity to leave when asked. She later provided details and was de-arrested and given a £200 Fixed Penalty Notice. The organiser of the protest, a woman aged 61, has been issued a £10,000 Fixed Penalty Notice. Superintendent Caroline Hemingway said: A fund has been set up for donations towards paying the fine at this link: Fundraiser by Lauren French : Pay Manchester NHS protest organisers £10k fine (gofundme.com)
  5. As the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme continues to roll out across the city, Salford NHS CCG has issued an update. New cohorts announced in Salford As of today, the Salford NHS Vaccination Service is pleased to announce that we have begun inviting cohort seven, which includes all residents age 60 years and over. We will continue to work our way through vaccinating cohort six (who were invited last week), which includes; adult carers; people invited for annual long term condition checks with their GP; and people invited by the NHS for an annual flu jab (excluding asthmatics). As always, patients within these cohorts are encouraged to book their appointments online ASAP at www.salford.nhsvaccinations.co.uk or alternatively by calling 0800 953 0116. Second doses Appointments for second doses will be offered from the end of March / start of April. Please ensure you remind people at all opportunities the importance of attending for the second dose, as this will further boost their immune system response and offer them a longer period of protection against COVID-19. Housebound Patients who are unable to attend a community vaccine site and have not yet had a home visit are now being asked to contact the telephone booking centre on 0800 953 0116, where we will review whether it is possible for someone to visit their home and give them their vaccine there. Meanwhile Salford Mayor Paul Dennett has shared the latest data on the vaccine roll out across Salford which reveals that as of Weds 24th Feb, there have been a staggering 45,020 doses of the vaccines administered across Salford's 3 community hubs in Eccles, Clarendon and Irlam as well as it's outreach sites. This is a phenomenal effort by any standards and with every jab, another Salfordian is given protection against the worst of the virus.
  6. More than 10,000* patients, volunteers and NHS staff have taken part in Covid-19 research at the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA). Their support is crucial to the urgent public health studies which are improving care, identifying treatments and developing vaccines and other prevention measures. The NCA, which brings together Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and provides services for over 1 million people, is concentrating on delivering these highest priority studies which have a crucial role in understanding more about Covid-19, how to tackle it and the longer-term impact this pandemic will have on communities and the NHS. Most of the 10,000 people involved are taking part in studies in hospital – including Salford Royal, The Royal Oldham, Fairfield General in Bury and North Manchester General# – but nearly 600 healthy volunteers are involved in vaccine and antibody studies in the community. The NCA’s Director of Research, Professor Phil Kalra, said: Vikki O’Loughlin, Assistant Director of Nursing for Research & Innovation at the NCA, said: Professor Andy Ustianowski, National Clinical Lead for the NIHR Covid Vaccine Research Programme and Principal Research Lead at North Manchester General Hospital, said: * A small number of participants are involved in more than one study, for instance where observational data are being collected for different studies. # North Manchester General Hospital is run by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust under a management agreement.
  7. In the nations darkest hour, amidst the constant doom and gloom portrayed by the mainstream media and at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, one man put his foot forward in a bid to raise a little cash for the NHS. By the end of his walk he had smashed his original target of a thousand pounds having raised a staggering £32m+ during his 100 lap trek of this garden. That man was 99 year old retired veteran, Captain Tom Moore and as a result he was quite rightly bestowed with a knighthood on July 17th at Windsor Castle by none other than his biggest supporter, Her Majesty The Queen, for his heroic efforts. It was with great sadness that the nation heard the tragic news of his passing, aged 100-years, after contracting the virus he had so gallantly stood in the face of with his mammoth fundraising efforts. He had been admitted to hospital earlier that week after suffering from Pneumonia brought on as a result of contracting the virus. The funeral of the now Captain Sir Tom Moore is to be held in a small private service by his family this coming Saturday (27th Feb) and they have urged the public to stay at home and continue to adhere to the current lockdown measures. His body is set for cremation and his ashes will be interred within a family plot in his beloved Yorkshire. At a time when our country needed a hero, he stepped forward, again and again. His light shall never diminish and despite his frailties in his final years, in the hearts of a nation he will always be revered as a giant of a man who never gave up fighting for the country he loved.
  8. The UK Coronavirus battle is being won with every jab, at least according to the first published 'Real World' data from Scotland. As Salford's vaccine hubs and army of medical staff and community volunteers continue to vaccinate the most vulnerable within the city, good news came in the form of a study which was carried out by researchers in Scotland, who unveiled that both vaccines being used in the UK can cut hospitalisation rates by up to 95%. This is fantastic news for those who are hopeful of regaining their freedoms and some kind of normality in the coming months. Experts from the universities of Edinburgh and Strathclyde, as well as Public Health Scotland, claimed the data provided 'compelling evidence' of the vaccines effect in diminishing the threat of severe illness from the virus. Professor Aziz Sheikh, the lead researcher in the study, said: The findings echo data from Israel which shows a similar outcome, with Results clearly indicating that the Pfizer and Oxford/AstraZeneca jabs slashed the risk of hospital admission from Covid-19 by up to 85 and 94 per cent, respectively, within a month after the first dose. The findings which were released this morning will only bolster vaccination efforts, with the PM, Mr Boris Johnson vowing to inoculate every adult in the country with at least the first dose by the end of July. Medical experts are quick to remind people of the need to maintain social distancing for the foreseeable future, we still have a long way to go and many months ahead before we hit those targets in what has been the largest vaccination drive in British history. Professor Chris Whitty, who is the Chief Medical Officer for England, said the study, As of time of writing there have been 474 tragic deaths at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, with the latest death reported yesterday, Some good news came over the weekend though, as it was revealed that the vaccines DO cut transmission of the virus by up to two thirds, which will help slow the spread. With almost a third of the adults in the UK (17.5m) having already received their first shots, the first steps to freedom are being made.
  9. As vaccinations against coronavirus continue around the city in what is undoubtedly the largest vaccination drive in history, it is revealed that all care home residents in Salford who were willing to get the vaccine have now been given the COVID-19 vaccine, ahead of schedule. The milestone was reached on 22nd January 2021, two days ahead of the national target to vaccinate all residents of Salford’s 34 care homes by 24th January 2021. Dr. Nick Browne, GP at Gill Medical Centre in Walkden and a clinical lead for Salford’s vaccination programme said: Salford Primary Care Together, an organisation which supports GP practices across the city to work more closely together, is running the vaccination service on behalf of the city in partnership with Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This arrangement is ensuring that GPs in Salford do not have to step down their routine work to staff the vaccination services, as has been the case in other parts of the country. Dr Dawood Anwar, Salford Primary Care Together’s Clinical Lead Urgent Care said: Louise Smith, Practice Manager at Care Homes Medical Practice said: Priority groups for vaccination in this initial phase is determined by the Government following advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and starts with care home residents and their carers, people aged 80 years old and over, and frontline health and social care workers. Salford CCG has now also started to vaccinate people over the age of 80 who are living in their own houses and unable to reach a vaccination hub.
  10. The health secretary dashed any hopes of a tier reduction for Salford this morning after opting to keep Greater Manchester firmly within Tier 3 restrictions. Earlier this week, NHS chiefs urged the government not to drop parts of the country already in Tier 3 to Tier 2, even as infection rates dropped in some areas. Greater Manchester Metro Mayor, Andy Burnham said on Wednesday that there was a clear case for restrictions to be lowered across the region, however, the health secretary and government have disagreed as rates have started to rise once more in some areas. Whilst addressing parliament this morning, Mr Hancock confirmed that Greater Manchester would remain in Tier 3, with the only places set to move down to Tier 2 being Bristol and North Somerset and additionally Herefordshire which will move to Tier 1 after successfully bringing its rate of infection to just 45 in 100,000 and still falling. Meanwhile case rates in other parts of the South have increased by 46% this week, prompting the government to move London and other areas into Tier 3. 'We must be vigilant and keep this virus under control,' Mr Hancock told MPs. 'We've come so far, we mustn't blow it now.' He added: 'This is a moment when we act with caution.' This now means that the country has 38 million people or 68% of the population living under Tier 3 restrictions from Saturday 19th December. The news will come as a blow to many businesses in the region who were counting on relaxed restrictions to allow them to open during the lucrative Christmas period. The hospitality industry taking the largest hit, with many restaurants and pubs looking at never recovering and being closed for good.
  11. Domestic abuse incidents have risen over the past few years while calls to the national helpline have soared by 25 per cent during lockdown. The new service, funded by Salford NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, will aim to break the cycle of abuse. Salford City Council, which is commissioning the service from Greater Manchester charity TLC: Talk, Listen, Change, says over 79 per cent of cases supported by its children’s services involve concerns about domestic abuse. Last year the multi-agency MARAC panel which reviews domestic abuse cases heard over 1,040 high risk cases, just over 500 of which were repeat instances. Deputy City Mayor Councillor John Merry said: Dr Sharmishtha Ghangrekar, Named GP for Safeguarding Children at Salford CCG, said: The year-long pilot, which will cost £108,476 will fund three project workers to work one to one with up to 60 men, supporting them to change their behaviour. They will also carry out group work with another 24 men and deliver training for professionals. The charity also supports women abusers who want to change their behaviour. TLC Chief Executive Michelle Hill said:
  12. Today (7 September), Salford’s health and care system is launching a ‘big reset’ and local people are being asked to join in the conversation and share their views. During the coronavirus pandemic, the way health services were delivered in Salford changed to keep patients and staff safe but now the city wants to shape the future of its health and care system to make sure people living in Salford receive the right care in the best way. Salford’s Big Reset Conversation will run for three months, engaging with people living and working in the city to determine what is working well and what can be improved to create a better and fairer system in Salford. The conversation is split into five themes – prioritising patients, accessing health services, health at home, mental health and new relationships between health and care and communities – so that local people can have a say on all aspects of health and care. Alison Page, Chief Executive of Salford CVS, said: Over the last few months, some services temporarily stopped including planned surgery and routine appointments but now, the health and care system wants to prioritise those who still need the care and explore other options for people whose needs may have changed. Making sure people still have access to their GP and Emergency Department is vital in getting the health and care system moving again. Salford GP, Dr Girish Patel, said: Tyrone Roberts, Director of Nursing at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, said: Patients and service users feedback is vital in making change so please join in the Big Reset Conversation and share your views and experiences of services in Salford.

  13. Salford is to lead the way in developing the national approach to community testing for coronavirus over coming weeks. The new community testing model will identify the best way to deliver a quick and simple saliva test, without any of the discomfort of the existing nose and throat swab test. The development of the use of this new, rapid coronavirus test will begin in Salford with a phased roll out. When fully implemented it will be available to people who live, work and study in the city and people of all ages and backgrounds will be able to test on a weekly basis by providing saliva into a container, which will then be sent for a simple laboratory process, known as a LAMP test. Aimed at people without symptoms, community testing will help support work to stop the spread of the virus, by identifying positive cases early. See our earlier story on this here: The tests will be offered to those without symptoms going about their normal business, with people who think they have coronavirus symptoms still accessing the existing national testing system and sites. Salford City council believes that community testing is the best way to protect people and communities, to locate and disrupt the spread of the virus as soon as possible and even more so whilst a vaccine is being developed. The council firmly believes community testing should have continued throughout the pandemic and did not support the government when it was ended in early March. Community testing will help people respond quickly to protect others if they have the virus. This will mean people can rapidly follow advice to stay at home if they test positive, or if the test is negative, they can continue to go about their daily life with confidence. It allows people to take care of their own health as well as protecting those they have contact with, including their own family, friends and loved ones, whilst also helping to keep Salford’s economy open. City Mayor of Salford Paul Dennett said: With Salford being an early adopter of community testing it means that local people will be essential in providing invaluable feedback on the best way to administer testing, whether in community centres, or at supermarkets or tram stops. The aim is provide the easiest way for the community to take part so it becomes a normal part of day-to-day life as we live with and hopefully recover from COVID-19 in the near future. Mayor Dennett continued:
  14. Patients, NHS trusts and local research teams across the Greater Manchester region have contributed important data to new global research which shows that corticosteroids can significantly improve outcomes for severely ill patients with COVID-19. The research papers published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) today reinforce evidence that these inexpensive and widely available drugs improve outcomes for the most critically ill patients with the disease. One paper suggests the risk of death can be reduced by up to 20%. The papers include findings from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) supported REMAP-CAP study, which is being conducted across 15 countries around the world and led in the UK from the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre. Working closely together to help deliver rapid recruitment, NHS trusts and the NIHR’s Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN), and research institutes from the devolved nations helped recruit 71% of all global study participants from right across the UK. While the local NIHR Clinical Research Network for Greater Manchester enrolled a total of 34 participants to this vital, practice-changing study at NHS hospitals across the region. The local recruiting hospitals were North Manchester General Hospital, Salford Royal, Royal Oldham Hospital, Royal Blackburn Hospital, Manchester Royal Infirmary, Wythenshawe Hospital and Stepping Hill Hospital. The results from the REMAP-CAP trial show a high probability that among critically ill patients with COVID-19, treatment with a seven-day course of hydrocortisone improved outcomes such as survival and more rapid recovery, compared with no hydrocortisone treatment. An additional paper, co-ordinated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and led by researchers at the University of Bristol and the NIHR’s Bristol Biomedical Research Centre, provides a meta-analysis (evidence summary) of global steroid use across seven randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in 12 countries spanning five continents. It also included data drawn from REMAP-CAP and the NIHR-funded RECOVERY trial, which has already shown that the steroid dexamethasone can be successfully used in treatment of moderate to severe Covid-19. It concludes that corticosteroids can reduce the risk of death in the most ill patients by up to 20%. Tim Felton, Specialty Lead for Critical Care at NIHR CRN Greater Manchester and Clinical Lead for COVID-19 research at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) which runs Manchester Royal Infirmary and Wythenshawe Hospital, said: Wiesia Woodyatt, Research and Innovation Manager for Stockport NHS Foundation Trust which runs Stepping Hill Hospital, said: Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer said: Anthony Gordon, Professor of Anaesthesia and Critical Care at Imperial College London, and the study’s Chief Investigator, said: NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens said:
  15. The two organisations have teamed up to provide leisure centre staff with training in how to work effectively with disabled people through the Empower You programme. Three Salford Community Leisure team members are the first to qualify and were awarded their certificates at a ceremony at Eccles Leisure Centre recently. James Byrne, Mike Hilton and Ian Thompson were accompanied by disabled gym users and put through an intensive week-long Empower You training programme that included undertaking exercises blindfolded, learning how to describe moves and sensations in depth and finding out more about various health conditions and impairments in relation to physical activities Following the course, Ian Thompson (40), a fitness instructor at Swinton Leisure Centre, said: James Byrne (44), a fitness instructor at Eccles Leisure Centre, said: One of the assessors was 51-year-old Kay Burgin from Kersal in Salford. Kay has spina bifida and has always incorporated physical activity into her life including swimming and gym classes, but it has not always been easy. Said Kay: Mark Chew, Director of Sport and Leisure at Salford Community Leisure, said: Created by Ben Andrews of Unlimited Potential, Empower You is a short-term programme that supports disabled people to overcome barriers and to lead more active lifestyles. Local people who start with Empower You can move on to do activity in mainstream places. Said Ben: Empower You has been funded by NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group through its Innovation Fund, and supported by the University of Salford. It has been recognised nationally, with Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Chair of UKactive, saying “The rest of the country still needs to catch up [with Salford].”
