    When Anna was six months pregnant with her first child she was “remanded into custody”. This meant that she would be held in prison for six months as she waited for her trial date. "It didn’t sink in until I was waiting to be transported that I was probably going to be in prison when I gave birth to my first child. It was my first pregnancy, and fear overtook me. What was going to happen to me? What would happen to my baby?" Prison will never, ever be a safe place to be pregnant. Two babies have recently died in women’s prisons when their mothers gave birth without medical assistance

    Black women are more than four times more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth than white women in the UK, a review of 2017-2019 deaths shows. The MBRRACE-UK report found women from Asian backgrounds are almost twice as likely to die as white women. Some 495 individuals died during pregnancy or up to a year after birth, out of 2,173,810 having a child. The charity Birthrights is concerned that overall "this bleak picture has not changed in over a decade". University of Oxford researchers say for the vast majority of people, pregnancy remains very safe in the UK. But des

    The increased risk of black and minority ethnic women dying during pregnancy needs to be seen as a whole system problem and not limited to just maternity departments, according to experts on an exclusive panel hosted by The Independent. Professor Marian Knight, from Oxford University told the virtual event on Wednesday night that the health service needed to change its approach to caring for ethnic minority women in a wider context. Campaigners Tinuke Awe and Clotilde Rebecca Abe, from the Fivexmore campaign, called for changes to the way midwives were trained and demanded it was tim

    Plans to scrap tens of millions of “unnecessary” hospital follow-up appointments could put patients at risk and add to the overload at GP surgeries, NHS leaders and doctors are warning. Health service leaders in England are finalising a radical plan under which hospital consultants will undertake far fewer outpatient appointments and instead perform more surgery to help cut the NHS backlog and long waits for care that many patients experience. The move is contained in the “elective recovery plan” which Sajid Javid, the health secretary, will unveil next week. It will contain what one

    A groundbreaking inquiry into sickle cell disease has found “serious care failings” in acute services and evidence of attitudes underpinned by racism. The report by the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia, led by Pat McFadden MP, found evidence of sub-standard care for sickle cell patients admitted to general wards or attending A&E departments. The inquiry also found widespread lack of adherence to national care standards, low awareness of sickle cell among healthcare professionals and clear examples of inadequate training and insufficient investm

    Women’s health is one of the most political issues of our time. Much like the rest of society, health systems have been created by men for men – and women have been left to fit around the edges. Despite incredible medical advances across the world for women, they remain infantilised and controlled by patriarchal health systems. PPP’s international report, chaired by Dame Clare Gerada and Dame Lesley Regan, will change this narrative. Join us to round off International Women’s Week on the 11th March 2022 to delve deeper into the report’s findings – as we challenge the status quo and put wo

    The report makes the following recommendations for co-producing health information resources: Health information in a range of formats can be helpful in urgent situations such as the Covid-19 pandemic. For long-term conditions, educational videos were preferred by participants over written information because they can be understood by all community members. Video information was seen as the most engaging and useful format for people who do not speak English. This echoes previous research with diverse communities in Australia that showed that video had advantages over other forms of hea

    Current models of maternity care in the UK are failing to reach pregnant women living in adverse social circumstances, research commissioned by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has found. Georgina Jones, one of the report’s authors and professor of health psychology at Leeds Beckett University, told The BMJ, “Women are often living in a tangled web of complex inequalities that is beyond their control, and this impacts on the care they receive and the outcomes of that care . . .We’ve really been letting down these women in the way that our maternity and reproductive he

    Vulnerable people released from immigration detention in the UK are too often left without crucial continuity of care, leading to quickly deteriorating health, concludes a report. The report comes from Medical Justice, a charity that sends independent volunteer clinicians into immigration removal centres across the UK to offer medical advice and assessments to immigration detainees. The charity said that between 1 October 2020 and 30 September 2021 a total of 21 362 people were detained in UK immigration centres and 17 283 were released into the community, having been granted bail or
