    Findings The assessment of visual signs of jaundice in newborn babies is subjective and more challenging with babies who have black or brown skin. Stakeholders have differing opinions about the reliability of visual signs to detect jaundice in newborn babies. Some neonatal units have introduced safety measures to mitigate the risk of reliance on visual signs of jaundice. National guidance does not recommend routinely measuring bilirubin levels in babies who are not visibly jaundiced. National guidance for jaundice in newborn babies maybe more applicable to term b

    Key findings Before the pandemic, the White group had higher rates of elective procedures overall than the Black, Mixed and Asian groups, with the White group having almost a fifth more procedures than the Asian group per head of population. Cardiac and cataract procedure rates were highest in the Asian group and dental procedure rates were highest in the Black group. Procedure rates during the first year of the pandemic fell in all groups, with the NHS carrying out around 2.7 million fewer operations and tests in that year compared with the year before. However, the falls i

    Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Member of Parliament (MP) for Streatham, who secured this debate, highlighted some of the key statistics around black maternal health and mortality in the UK: Black babies have a 121% increased risk of stillbirth and a 50% increased risk of neonatal death. Asian babies have a 55% increased risk of stillbirth and a 66% increased risk of neonatal mortality. Black women have a 43% higher risk of miscarriage, and black ethnicity is now regarded as a risk factor for miscarriage. She also referred to the findings of black maternal experiences survey carri

    This week I had the pleasure of meeting with Janet Williams MBE who with EMMA M. and INFACT have done so much to provide information and support to patients taking Sodium Valproate. Women are still not getting the information needed to make the choices that are right for them at different stages of their lives. Despite regulators advice patients continue to be dispensed sodium valproate in plain white boxes with no warning labels or patient information leaflets. Janet shared a devastating story with me about a patient who was only told about the harmful effects of sodium valproate af

    Sickle cell patients’ experiences of barriers to treatment and racial inequalities will be investigated by an NHS body next month, The Independent has learned. The NHS Race and Health Observatory has collaborated with Public Digital, a consultancy group, to lead original research into the experiences of people with sickle cell, including listening to NHS patients’ and carers’ first-hand accounts of acute emergency hospital admissions and managing the condition at home. Research will focus on a series of interviews and ‘experience mapping’ workshops, the findings of which are anticipa

    Black and Asian people in England have to wait longer for a cancer diagnosis than white people, with some forced to wait an extra six weeks, according to a “disturbing” analysis of NHS waiting times. A damning review of the world’s largest primary care database by the University of Exeter and the Guardian discovered minority ethnic patients wait longer than white patients in six of seven cancers studied. Race and health leaders have called the results “deeply concerning” and “absolutely unacceptable”. The analysis of 126,000 cancer cases over a decade found the median time between a

    A quarter of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) non-executive directors of NHS trusts have seen or experienced discrimination in the course of their work, a report reveals. While almost four out of five (79%) of these BAME non-executives said they challenged such behaviour when they encountered it, only half (50%) said that led to a change of policy or behaviour. The other half felt they had been ‘fobbed off’ or subjected to actively hostile behaviour for having spoken up,” says a report commissioned by the Seacole Group, which represents most of the BAME non-executive board mem

    Key findings Antenatal care Engagement with antenatal care was high with 96% engaging with maternity services in the first trimester of pregnancy and 95% of women engaging fully with midwifery, doctor and sonography appointments. However, for women who experienced miscarriage or pregnancy loss, 61% report that they were not offered any additional support to deal with the outcome of the pregnancy. Labour and birth Just over a third (36%) of respondents reported feeling dissatisfied with how concerns were addressed during labour. 43% percent reported their p

    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

    It has long been clear that Black Americans have experienced high rates of coronavirus infection, hospitalisation and death throughout the pandemic. But those factors are now leading experts to sound the alarm about what will may come next: a prevalence of Long Covid in the Black community and a lack of access to treatment. Long Covid — with chronic symptoms like fatigue, cognitive problems and others that linger for months after an acute coronavirus infection has cleared up — has perplexed researchers, and many are working hard to find a treatment for people experiencing it. But hea

    Lawmakers say minorities may disproportionately suffer from long-term symptoms of coronavirus infection. A pair of Democratic House members asked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a letter Tuesday to release data on the number of Americans who suffer lingering symptoms of coronavirus infection, including breakdowns along race, gender and age. The National Institutes of Health and the CDC have launched detailed studies of Long Covid, but those examinations are expected to take years. In the meantime, policymakers lack good information about how many people in the
