    The scope of the UK public inquiry into the handling of the Covid pandemic has widened to include a focus on children. When the draft terms were published in March, there was criticism that they failed to even mention the impact on children and young people. But after a public consultation, the final terms have been published and now incorporate the effect on the health, wellbeing and education of children. The final terms of reference were decided following a four-week public consultation on the draft terms. As well as expanding the terms to include the impact on the health, we

    Women and babies in the UK are “dying needlessly” because of a lack of suitable medicines to use in pregnancy, according to a report that calls for a radical overhaul of maternal health. A “profound” shortage of research and the widespread exclusion of pregnant and breastfeeding women from clinical trials means hardly any new drugs are approved for common medical problems in pregnancy or soon after childbirth, the report finds. Meanwhile, scarce or contradictory information about the safety of existing medicines women may be taking for continuing conditions can make it impossible to

    Recommendations Deliver effective advocacy for medicines in pregnancy through a coalition of pregnancy and baby charities, working together with the public, researchers from academia and industry as well as Government to create a shared vision for safe medicines evaluation and development in pregnancy. This will allow for clear and consistent messages to the public and clinicians. Pregnant women should be offered the opportunity to take part in all clinical trials of medicines that could be used in pregnancy, unless there are specific safety concerns. Prioritise updates for

    The results from the Five X More nationwide survey on Black women’s maternity experiences will be officially launching on Tuesday 24th May "No decisions about us, without us" For many years Black women and birthing people in the UK have experienced poorer health outcomes and lower quality of care. This is particularly true within maternity. In the recent MBRRACE reports, clear racial variations in maternal deaths were observed, showing that Black women are four times as likely to die as white women during pregnancy, delivery or postpartum, yet the reasons for the differences in mater

    People in England are struggling to get dental treatment, as dentists close to new NHS patients, a watchdog says. Healthwatch England, the NHS body representing patients, said the problem was made worse by the rising cost of living and needed "urgent attention". It said some people were living in pain, unable to speak or eat properly, because they could not find treatment. And it warned the poorest were suffering most as they were least able to afford to pay for private dentistry. Healthwatch England said the issue was creating a two-tier system - dividing the rich and the

    Trusts have been told to ‘get their act together’ on health inequalities, after HSJ research suggested only a small minority have so far published data on disparities in waiting times between different patient groups. Planning guidance issued by NHS England in September 2021 said trusts’ board performance reports should include a disaggregation of waiting lists by ethnicity and deprivation group. Through freedom of information and media requests, HSJ attempted to obtain such data from the 20 trusts with the largest waiting lists, but only three currently appear to have met the requir

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is attempting to ban race-based medical guidance which the organisation attributes to long-standing inequities in healthcare. In a statement on Monday, the AAP said: “Race is a historically-derived social construct that has no place as a biologic proxy. Over the years, the medical field has inaccurately applied race correction or race adjustment factors in its work, resulting in differential approaches to disease management and disparate clinical outcomes.” “Although it will continue to be important to collect clinical data disaggregated by race and

    On 23 June 2022, National Voices is holding an all-day conference, as we explore the topic of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), on the eve of ICSs becoming statutory bodies that cover the entirety of England. Now is the right moment to identify the changes we want to see as a result of this fundamental shift in the way the health and care system is organised. We want to see better, more equal outcomes for people, especially those not currently well supported by existing models. We also want to see more coordinated and effective care that enables people to live well, with fewer barriers between c

    Women with asthma are twice as likely to die from an asthma attack compared with men in the UK, new figures show as health experts called for urgent research into the condition’s sex-related differences. They are more likely to have the condition, more likely to need hospital treatment for it and more likely to die from an attack, Asthma + Lung UK said. Over the past five years women have accounted for more than two-thirds of asthma deaths in the UK. The charity said the current “one size fits all” approach to asthma treatment is “not working” because it does not take into account th
