NHS maternity racism allegations

surgeon claims

An inquiry looking at NHS maternity racism allegations has been launched following several high-profile research studies and testimonies revealing reported inherent bias in prenatal care.

It comes after a study published in January reportedly revealed the stark racial disparity in maternity care, with MBRRACE-UK finding that black women can be four times more likely to die in childbirth and pregnancy than white women. Further, women from Asian ethnic backgrounds can reportedly be subjected to twice the risk as well, and the risk of fatalities is said to be accompanied by poorer experiences when it comes to prenatal care also.

As specialists in medical negligence, it is worrying for us to hear that systemic racism could be unfairly affecting the standard of care in our health service. We believe healthcare injustices are wrong in any form and that, as this is not the first time the issue has been raised, the NHS must act quickly to review the alleged racial disparity in maternity care.

Are poor NHS systems endangering patients?

doctor on laptop computer

Poor and outdated NHS systems may be endangering patients as calls for the public health service to catch-up to the 21st century grow.

There have been a few NHS systems issues recently that have caused havoc. Last year’s WannaCry data breach caused huge problems for the NHS and for patients. Operations were cancelled, and services were closed. It all happened because the ransomware used in the attack targeted older systems. Older systems are often not as secure and no longer have patches available.

That’s just one example of poor NHS systems endangering patient safety. There are more.

driverless vehicles

Further guidance also suggests ways of disabling the vehicle to stop it driving off as well.

eBay and other slammed over fake cancer zapper sales

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.
