    The Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety (IMMDS) Review examined the response of the healthcare system in England to the harmful side effects of three medical interventions: hormone pregnancy tests, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh implants. These interventions have resulted in a truly shocking degree of avoidable harm to patients over a period of decades, with the Review describing the healthcare system’s response to this as “disjointed, siloed, unresponsive and defensive."[1] Over two years on from the publication of the IMMDS Review’s report, First Do No Harm, the Health an

    This report follows on from an evidence session held by the Select Committee on the 13 December 2022 to assess the Government’s progress against recommendations made in the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety (IMMDS) report, First Do No Harm. This featured contributions from the Government Minister Maria Caulfield MP, patients and patient groups, and representatives from NHS England and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Summary of the reports recommendations The Government should: Urgently ensure that the accepted recommendations 6 an

    It’s so important that mesh-injured women are able to access redress for their injuries, many of which are life-changing. Often, financial support is not a bonus but is necessary, as women have had to leave their jobs or reduce their hours to cope, move to accessible housing or sell their home to live with family. Many have also experienced marriage breakdown as a result of mesh complications. One in four women in Sling The Mesh need a stick to help them walk, so need to pay for mobility aids or scooters, and there are also the ongoing costs of travel to doctors and hospital appointments.

    There is a "moral case" for compensation to be paid to people affected by the contaminated blood scandal, the government has said. But Paymaster General Jeremy Quin told MPs he could not commit to a timetable. In August, the government announced that 4,000 UK victims would receive interim payments of £100,000. Tens of thousands of people contracted HIV or hepatitis C in the 1970s and 80s after being given infected blood. In September, modelling by a group of academics commissioned by the public inquiry estimated that 26,800 people were infected after being given contaminat

    What is an Early Day Motion? Early Day Motions are motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons for which no day has been fixed, and as such very few are debated. They are used to put on record the views of individual MPs or to draw attention to specific events or campaigns. By attracting the signatures of other MPs, they can be used to demonstrate the level of parliamentary support for a particular cause or point of view. Early Day Motion 349: Financial redress for victims of surgical mesh, sodium valproate and hormone pregnancy tests This Early Day Motion has been signed

    A scheme handing payments to those affected by the contaminated blood scandal will be announced this week, as ministers scramble to help those harmed by the “historic wrong”. Whitehall sources confirmed that a programme handing interim payments will be confirmed in the coming days, once officials have ironed out issues to ensure that victims are not taxed on the payments or have their benefits affected by them. It is thought that ministers accept recent recommendations that infected people and bereaved partners should get “payments of no less than £100,000”. More than 4,000 people ar

    Asked to share the worst things doctors have said to them, members of the 9,600-strong Sling The Mesh support group responded by sharing a huge number of outrageous comments; comments that are belittling, misogynistic and demonstrate the scale of mass institutional denial. These accounts are not limited to one doctor, specialty or area, they concern surgeons, consultants and GPs from across the UK. There will be many doctors shocked and horrified by the comments shared by mesh-injured women, but there are clearly those whose attitudes and behaviours are completely unacceptable. Comme

    If you have had vaginal mesh surgery as an NHS patient in England and have suffered any of the above symptoms/problems, you may be able to make a claim against the NHS. In addition to side effects, you may be able to claim for implants that were not inserted correctly and/or on the basis that you were given the wrong information or advice. On the NHS Resolution website you can find more information on making a claim and details of organisations which can help you find a medical negligence solicitor who can guide you through the process and let you know if you have a valid claim.

    An epilepsy drug that caused disabilities in thousands of babies after being prescribed to pregnant women could be more dangerous than previously thought. Sodium valproate could be triggering genetic changes that mean disabilities are being passed on to second and even third generations, according to the UK’s medicines regulator. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has also raised concerns that the drug can affect male sperm and fertility, and may be linked to miscarriages and stillbirths. Ministers are already under pressure after it emerged in April

    On 22 September 2021 the Health and Social Care Select Committee launched a new inquiry examining the case for reform of NHS litigation, identifying concerns regarding a significant increase in clinical negligence costs and missed opportunities for learning to improve patient safety. The Committee stated that the existing system was “failing to meet its objectives for both families and the healthcare system”.[1] Here we will provide an overview of our response to this Inquiry, which focused on four key areas: Learning from avoidable harm in healthcare Improving redress for p
