England: 7 in 10 Baby Deaths or Cases of Brain Damage at Birth Caused by Bad NHS Care



Breitbart Europe: A government-funded study has found that 71 per cent of baby deaths or neonatal brain injuries could have been avoided if the National Health Service (NHS) had given better care.

The ‘Every Baby Counts’ project, by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), looked at 1,123 babies who were stillborn, died within a week of birth, or were born brain-damaged in 2016 in a report published Tuesday.

Of those 1,123, 124 (11 per cent) were stillborn, 145 newborns died within the first week of birth, and 854 suffered brain damage, often due to deprivation of oxygen during labour.

In 45 per cent of cases, midwives and obstetricians were found to have failed to follow best practice or guidelines, including lack of training or not responding to warning signs sufficiently. Each case had an average of seven failings where actions were inadequate or went wrong.

The report also blamed overwhelmed maternity units and staff shortages.

Co-investigator of Every Baby Counts and vice-president of the RCOG told The Guardian that “Sadly, this latest report from Each Baby Counts shows that different care might have made a difference to the outcome for almost three-quarters of affected babies.”

One woman whose baby son Harry suffered brain damage was told that it was “just one of those things” and she and her husband had to push for an investigation, which found fault with the NHS hospital.  read more

10 Comments on England: 7 in 10 Baby Deaths or Cases of Brain Damage at Birth Caused by Bad NHS Care

  1. I’d say it’s more like 50/50 Socialism/Inbreeding, but the NHS will take the blame for the majority part, so that the breeding practices of muslims are not besmirched.

  2. I wonder how many of the babies that were stillborn or were brain damaged had obstetricians of the “islamic persuasion”? I’m betting no one kept track of that little statistic.

  3. …leave us not forget that a LOT of congenital defects including brain damage were brought to Merrie Olde England by Islamics who brought centuries of tradition in the form of inbreeding with them…

    “Consanguinity is a major risk factor for congenital anomaly. The risk remains even after adjustment for deprivation, and accounts for almost a third of anomalies in babies of Pakistani origin. ”


  4. More great news coming from a centuries old culture busily committing suicide. Willfully introducing the deadly pathogen of Islamic vermin into the system is a certain painful death. So long England.

  5. Supposedly, one of the primary reasons for importing the muslim horde, is that europeans have ceased procreation… That stated, for those who may not be paying attention, we must surmise that the vast majority of these children are in fact muslim.
    Free healthcare!
    “Speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.” Geo. Orwell

  6. It’s not just muslims coming in with faulty DNA. This is socialized medicine at its core.
    My cousin is a victim of this (early 70’s, Greece).
    My grandmother, too, in the 1990s.
    Socialists are the least social people you will ever meet. Moody, greedy, untalented, heartless and lazy. It’s easier to be that way instead of doing the right things. The sane things. The moral things.
