Lung Cancer Referrals down 50% due to COVID-19

scan compensation claims

Cancer Research UK has revealed that lung cancer referrals are said to be down 50% over the last few months due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Fewer patients may be visiting their GP with lung cancer symptoms due to the similar nature of coronavirus symptoms, and this is seen as a cause for concern.

Cancer Research UK is said to be concerned not just about the apparent lack of lung cancer referrals, but also the lack of referrals for all types of cancer. They fear that the Government’s ‘stay home, protect the NHS, save lives’ messaging may have impacted people’s decision-making to visit their GP and, as a result, hindered early diagnosis of cancers and, perhaps, the outcome of treatments.

Inadequate Basildon University Hospital maternity unit

care home negligence

Basildon University Hospital maternity has been rated ‘inadequate’ after failures involving six serious cases. The maternity unit has been ordered to make urgent improvements after further concerns were raised recently about the safety of the maternity unit and its patients.

The Basildon University Hospital maternity unit has faced a number of investigations for serious cases that have raised issues surrounding the hospital’s care of patients. The maternity unit first came under fire in 2019 after the deaths of a baby in September 2018 and Gabriela Pintilie, 36, in February 2019, reportedly put down to ‘medical ineptitude.’ Further investigation into to unit found 5 other cases that were also linked to failings of care.

Further to this, a woman whose son died shortly after he was born, after 22 weeks of pregnancy, has been critical of the care and support she received during her pregnancy. She told BBC News that ‘Nearly every day I was having doctors come in encouraging me that I needed to terminate the pregnancy, even though there was nothing wrong with him.’

Concerns over anti-depressant prescriptions for children

child abuse claims

A shocking number of anti-depressant prescriptions for children has been revealed. It has been said that 1,572 infants were prescribed anti-depressants to stabilise their moods between 2015 and 2019, which is a cause for concern.

This is an astonishing statistic considering that the NHS guidance recommends not prescribing under-18’s anti-depressants. Whilst this kind of medication can be vital for those who need it, it is concerning to learn so much use of the drug is taking place for children.

Whilst medical advice must always take precedence, we must not end up in a situation where there is an over-reliance on such medication that could have an adverse effect on children. We have seen such instances where an over-reliance on prescriptions has caused widespread problems, and this is a situation that must be avoided at all costs.

In any cases where someone has suffered, that is where they may be eligible to claim.

It is believed that the number of women who could be affected by issues could be around the 272 mark, which has come from the ongoing investigation data so far. If you have not been contacted by the Trust but have gone through a procedure that may form as part of this, and something has gone wrong, you could be eligible to claim.
