    Nearly 400 women who were treated by a consultant gynaecologist who "unnecessarily harmed" some patients are being invited to have their care reviewed by an independent expert. University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Trust is writing to 383 patients treated by Daniel Hay. His conduct has been under investigation since 2019 after hospital colleagues raised concerns. The trust has said at least eight of his patients had been harmed. It has not provided any further information on the nature of the harm. Mr Hay worked at the Royal Derby Hospital and Ripley Hospital between

    A 23-year-old woman who begged doctors to remove her womb to relieve chronic pain says the surgery is being refused due to her age and childless status. Hannah Lockhart has endometriosis, a condition that can cause debilitating pain, heavy periods and infertility. Although she has always wanted her own children, Hannah says her daily pain is now so severe she wants a hysterectomy. "It's heartbreaking that just because I'm so young I have to keep suffering," she told the BBC's Evening Extra. Ms Lockhart, from Bangor in County Down, has been in hospital seven times in the pas

    My son, Kit I set up Kit Tarka Foundation after the preventable death of my beautiful son Kit to neonatal herpes when he was just 13 days old. I say preventable as he was born healthy at full term, contracted the virus in hospital postnatally and was under almost continuous medical care for his whole life. Yet herpes was never treated for. It was not even suspected until he was in an induced coma in intensive care on his 12th day fighting for his life; but by that stage it was too late – the doctors were just doing everything they could to keep him alive. Neonatal herpes wasn’t consi

    Findings: A systematic review of midwife-led continuity of care models identified benefits for women and babies, with no adverse effects. Non-randomised studies have shown benefits of midwifery continuity of care for specific groups, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. There are also benefits for midwives, including high levels of job satisfaction and less occupational burnout. Implementing midwifery continuity of care in public and private settings in Australia has been challenging, despite the evidence in its favour and government policy documents tha

    Miscarriage may be associated with an increased risk of early death, researchers have said. The BMJ published a study suggesting that this risk is particularly acute for those who have experienced repeated miscarriages, especially ones that occurred early on in a woman’s life. US-based researchers said that women who had experienced a miscarriage were 19% more likely to die prematurely. They pointed out that a miscarriage “could be an early marker of future health risk in women.” The authors of the paper hoped to see if there was any link between miscarriage and a risk of death

    In ‘Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed For Men’ author Caroline Criado Perez writes about Rachael, a woman who suffered years of severe and incapacitating pain during her period. It takes, on average, eight years for women in the UK to obtain a diagnoses of endometriosis. In fact, for over a decade, there has been no improvement in diagnostic times for women living with the debilitating condition. You might think, given the difficulty so many women experience in having their symptoms translated into a diagnosis, that endometriosis is a rare condition that doctors per

    Endometriosis care across the UK needs urgent improvement and diagnosis times need to be cut in half, a report by MPs says. It found an average wait for a diagnosis was eight years and that has not improved in more than a decade. Endometriosis affects one in 10 women in the UK and causes debilitating pain, very heavy periods and infertility. Nadine Dorries, minister for women's health, said awareness was increasing but there was still a long way to go. More than 10,000 people took part in the All-Party Political Group inquiry which found that 58% of people visited the GP more th
