    Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Member of Parliament (MP) for Streatham, who secured this debate, reiterated the key statistics around black maternal health and mortality in the UK: Black women are still four times more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth. Black women are up to 83% more likely to suffer a near miss during pregnancy. Black babies have a 121% increased risk of stillbirth and a 50% increased risk of neonatal death. Miscarriage rates are 40% higher in black women, and black ethnicity is regarded as a risk factor for miscarriage. Black mothers are twice as l

    Experts have warned that a device used to detect signs of oxygen level drops may not work as well on darker skin. According to NHS England and MHRA, pulse oximeters may sometimes overestimate oxygen levels. Now, NHS England is updating their guidance advising patients patients from black, Asian and other ethnic minority groups to seek advice from their healthcare professional, but to continue using pulse oximeters. "We need to ensure there is common knowledge on potential limitations in healthcare equipment and devices, particularly for populations at heightened risk of life-changi

    Concerns over bullying and discrimination have been raised in a survey of hundreds of doctors at a major hospital trust, HSJ can reveal. University Hospitals of North Midlands Trust’s medical staff committee carried out a survey of its doctors earlier this year, after bullying concerns were raised by members of the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin at the trust. A summary of the survey findings, published in a newsletter sent to all doctors at the trust last week and seen by HSJ, showed more than two-thirds of the 348 respondents claimed to have experienced bullying

MPs will debate a petition relating to Black maternal healthcare and mortality. Scheduled to take place at 6.15pm this evening, the session will be led by Petitions Committee Chair Catherine McKinnell MP. Read full story Source: The Independent, 19

    P ublic services are dismissing sickle cell patients because the illness disproportionately affects Black people, campaigners have warned. The blood disorder is prevalent among African and Caribbean communities and advocacy groups say this means it remains poorly understood within state institutions, often leading to the needless suffering and even death of those diagnosed. The issue has gained wider attention following the high-profile cases of two Black men, Richard Okorogheye and Evan Nathan Smith, who lived with the disease and died amid claims their vulnerabilities were ove

    Feeling manipulated into having medical procedures, dismissed by professionals and labelled with racial stereotypes are among the complaints of parents who responded to a national inquiry into racial injustice in UK maternity care. A panel established by the charity Birthrights is investigating discrimination ranging from explicit racism to racial bias and microaggressions that amount to poorer care. It comes as parliament is due on 19 April to debate the large racial disparity in maternal mortality in British hospitals, after a petition from the campaign group Five X More gathered 1

    Highlights The Albany Midwifery Practice was established within King's College Hospital NHS Trust in South East London and provided care to 2568 women from 1997 until 2009. The caseload included high proportions (57%) of women from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities from an area of high social disadvantage. Midwifery continuity of carer was high with almost all women (95.5%) being attended in labour by their primary or secondary midwife.

    This year’s report shows that, at the point at which the pandemic struck, inequalities were already present in the NHS. It is of note that much of this is experienced by black and minority ethnic staff as subtle processes and behaviours, that are often undetected by others. Three things emerge as key lessons to take from this year’s findings: First, that delivering equality of outcome and opportunity should be the professional and moral obligation of every leader in the NHS. If it is not already happening, senior and executive leaders need to be accountable for developing and delivering

    Minority ethnic people in UK were ‘overexposed, under protected, stigmatised and overlooked’, new review finds. Structural racism led to the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus pandemic on black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities, a review by Doreen Lawrence has concluded. The report, commissioned by Labour, contradicts the government’s adviser on ethnicity, Dr Raghib Ali, who last week dismissed claims that inequalities within government, health, employment and the education system help to explain why COVID-19 killed disproportionately more people from minority eth

    Almost two-thirds of black Britons think the NHS does less to protect their health than that of white people, research has found. That negative view of the health service is shared by a majority of black people of almost all ages, and is held especially strongly by black women, according to findings of a study commissioned by a parliamentary committee. Overall, 64% of black people do not believe that their health is as protected by the NHS compared with white people’s. When asked if they thought it was, 34.3% disagreed and another 29.6% disagreed strongly, while just 19.9% agreed and

    The latest annual report into the deaths of people with learning disabilities has criticised the “insufficient” national response to past recommendations and called for “urgent” policy changes. The national learning disabilities mortality review programme has criticised the response from national health bodies to its previous recommendations. To date, just over 7,000 deaths have been notified to the programme and reviews have been completed for just 45%. There have been four annual reports for programme to date, and in the latest published today, the authors warned: “The respons

    The high proportion of pregnant women from black and ethnic minority (BAME) groups admitted to hospital with COVID-19 "needs urgent investigation", says a study in the British Medical Journal. Out of 427 pregnant women studied between March and April, more than half were from these backgrounds - nearly three times the expected number. Most were admitted late in pregnancy and did not become seriously ill. Although babies can be infected, the researchers said this was "uncommon". When other factors such as obesity and age were taken into account, there was still a much higher proportio

    When pharmacist Ifeoma Onwuka, known to her friends as Laura, went into hospital to have her daughter, she and her husband hoped the delivery would go smoothly, and that they would soon be able to take their new arrival home  to meet her siblings.  Onwuka's labor was induced at James Paget University Hospital in Great Yarmouth in late April 2018. Things progressed quickly and there were soon signs that her baby was in distress, causing staff to begin preparations for an emergency Caesarian section, but Onwuka's daughter was born in the recovery room. Shortly after the birth, Onwuka's
