Maternity unit closures an ongoing concern

the nhs may be heading for a summer crisis!

It’s understood that a high volume of maternity unit closures are taking place as a result of staff shortages; potentially putting patients at risk.

Figures reportedly revealed that, last year, there appears to have been an alarming number of maternity unit closures caused by capacity issues. Reportedly, almost half of units across the country had to close their doors to new mothers at some point. Some of the units were also closed for longer than 24 hours as well.

internet hoax

eBay, Argos and Sainsburys have been slammed over online sales of so-called cancer zapper machines that are deemed to be fake.

The idea that a cancer zapper can cure the life-threatening disease came from a Canadian author who died of cancer. The author reportedly claimed that cancer was caused by parasites, and the use of a zapper could kill the parasites and cure the disease.

Needless to say, this method of treatment has been widely discredited. However, desperate patients have been lured into buying the devices online.
