This rapidly improved to about 5 per cent for mitral valvotomy, and more difficult lesions such as pulmonary stenosis were tackled. While technology was often a key enabler, it was not necessarily the most important feature of the service innovations we studied.
Frustrated with the slow pace of change, there have always been voices in the NHS advocating national direction, or the use of highly directive incentive schemes, to speed up adoption of innovation. Venereal disease responded to antibiotics: Adult endocrine and diabetes services are based at Bristol Royal Infirmary.
Staff engagement is the only area for which the survey does this. Traditionally the NHS scores high on levels of motivation and satisfaction but with variable levels of involvement and advocacy, and overall scores have improved in recent years. Investigations into these, and similar scandals, have recommended that the health service put patient experience at the heart of what it does, and especially, that the voice of patients is heard loud and clear within the health services.
Generally underpinning the health care system are pressures to reduce costs, increase access and affordability of services, and provide greater accountability.

The staff engagement element of the survey looks at the three dimensions of engagement: Always ask open questions, encourage them to talk, emphasise the positive and always give praise and recognition where it is due. The department runs an annual South West endocrine symposium and an annual South West diabetes symposium.
Policy-makers express their frustration by commissioning a new report every couple of years decrying the slow pace of change and highlighting the potential benefits of faster adoption of innovation. As the case studies make clear, the attitudes of local leaders and the working environment within provider organisations have a significant impact on the speed of innovation and spread.

Emma Redfern, an emergency medicine consultant at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trustfound time alongside a hugely pressured day job to review performance and devise a strategy to prevent harm to patients in overcrowded emergency departments.

In any case, the evidence for service innovations is constantly shifting, with new innovations emerging. More frequent among the poor, there would be fever, pain and stiffness in the larger joints. In heart attacks the evidence of their value was weaker, largely based on a trial in New York in which patients were treated or not according to the day of the week on which they were admitted.
The tide turned when Jonas Salk developed an inactivated vaccine in the USA and reported the success of field trials in Raising concerns How it works The survey adopts a method of assessing overall NHS performance on people management, to help organisations understand and compare their own performance.
There were 26 cases, 13 of which were among nursing and medical staff, domestics and laundry workers at the hospital to which the earliest cases were admitted, and ten deaths. Articles which focussed on any allied health performance evaluation or those which examined performance in health care in general were considered in the review.
It is routine practice for all patient correspondence to be copied to the patient unless they express a wish not to receive this information or there are valid clinical reasons not to. However MRC trials and the work of Professor Sir John Crofton in Edinburgh showed that it was not which drugs were given that mattered, but in what combination and for how long.
Conclusions Every allied health care delivery system has different performance needs and will therefore require different approaches.
The engineering problems were substantial and the results to begin with were not always predictable. Synthetic cream was associated with many outbreaks of paratyphoid fever, and spray-dried skim-milk was responsible for outbreaks of toxin-type food poisoning.
