The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (ROH) is embarking on a large-scale digital transformation programme that will have a major impact on data management within the Trust.
One of the largest specialist orthopaedic trusts in Europe, ROH is utilising a low code platform to quickly create a series of eforms, enabling it to simplify the collection of information and alleviate administrative pressures on its staff.  The project launched with the build of a lateral flow test submission form in just two days. Rapid lateral flow tests are used help to find cases in people who may have no symptoms but are still infectious and can give the virus to others. The form enables ROH’s 1,500 members of staff to submit their results in real time, which can then be easily shared with NH…
A new study, VitaC4Care, will test how much vitamin C is needed to achieve normal levels in care home residents. One of the most vulnerable groups susceptible to COVID-19 is older people. In the UK, almost half (47%) of all COVID-19 deaths in the first wave were in care homes 1. In the US the Covid Tracking Project 2 estimates a third (34%) of deaths were in care homes. Could a lack of vitamin C, which is essential for optimising immune function and fighting viral infections 3, be a major contributing factor? 3 The VitaC4Care study is led by Professor Phyo Myint, Clinical Chair in Medicine of Old Age and Dr Alan Sneddon from the Rowett Institute’s Metabolic Health Unit, University of Aberdeen, UK, together with Dr Stavroula Kastora from NHS Grampian and vitamin C researcher Associate Professor Anitra Carr from New Zealand’s University of Otago.

The Global Deferiprone Market is projected to be US$ 35.2 Mn in 2020 to reach US$ 37.8 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 0.9%. The first five-year cumulative revenue (2019–2023) is projected to be over US$ 177 Mn, which is estimated to increase moderately over the latter part of the five-year forecast period.
Deferiprone is an iron chelator specified for the treatment of patients with transfusional iron overload caused owing to thalassemia syndromes, mainly when the current chelation therapy is insufficient. Chelation therapy is utilized to remove the build-up of toxic metals from the body, such as lead, iron, mercury, and arsenic. It prevents patients from getting severe thalassemia symptoms.
