BBC England in Derbyshire report yesterday:
A woman who claims her marriage was wrecked by a drug prescribed by a consultant gynaecologist, who is under investigation, said she wants answers. The patient said she took the drug given to her by Daniel Hay for three years, when it should have been used for a maximum of eight weeks. Nearly 400 women who were treated by the doctor are being contacted as part of a review into his care. The trust Mr Hay worked for said they must “learn from what happened”.
There is no mention of the Health Secretary for England, Matt Hancock, or of the Prime Minister. 400! You’d think someone might ask one of them to get involved, comment even. Nope.
It does not occur to BBC notScotland that they might be concerned, as in ‘responsible’ in any way or frankly that ‘bothered’.
Things are different here and we won’t need 400:
Maybe other reports mention Matt Hancock? No. The one above mentions no government figure.
He’s not in these either:
Maybe they’re not serious enough incidents, unlike the 1 or 2 baby deaths Jeanne Freemen gets blamed for?
1 000 baby deaths in the above English hospital.
