The Hughes Report: Options for redress released by the Patient Safety Commissioner All HART articles also on Substack. Please consider a PAID SUBSCRIPTION so we can continue our work.

The fact that the NHS is wasting millions of taxpayer pounds continuing to promote these ineffective and harmful products is really symbolic of what the health service has become. Simply another cog in the medical industrial machine, whirring to improve Pharma profits with little or no concern for end user health. In a service allegedly crushed by lack of resources, why on earth are they still pushing these toxic products on an unsuspecting ‘vulnerable’ sector of society?
Following the account from a frontline GP back in July outlining the woeful state of affairs within the NHS, we received a thoughtful response from another GP, confirming everything that was laid out, but also adding a few of their own thoughts.
Digging into the trial centres and the sponsorship has highlighted the current state of medical research in the UK and the influence of the drug company sponsor. Several of the centres involved are commercial companies with clearly a need to undertake drug company sponsored research in order to make a profit for their organisation.
A GP contacted HART last week, describing some of what they are currently witnessing. Boots on the ground reports are extremely informative for a confused public. We invite other medics and clinicians to share their experiences. Anonymity would be assured.
Somewhere in England in early 2023, a large group of medics gathered together for an annual conference. No need for the details, lest the GMC attack dogs start frothing at the mouth at the idea of yet another potential witch hunt.
For many people, the words ‘trust the experts’ now invoke a sort of pavlovian horror response. This trope serves as a visceral reminder of 3 years’ constant gaslighting for daring to question the narrative, the relentless stream of celebrity medics repeating the ‘safe and effective’ mantra and the bullying and coercion to take a ‘vaccine’ that millions of people didn’t feel they needed or wanted.
The encroachment of technocracy on medicine is a double-edged sword, wielding both the power to transform and the threat to dehumanise. While AI holds the potential to revolutionise diagnostics, treatment, and patient care, we must fight to keep the heart and soul of medicine alive – empathy, compassion, and ethical decision-making. We must demand that we maintain our humanity in the face of technological change.
NHS patients have selflessly contributed to research for many decades. Patients, particularly those with a poor prognosis, are often very willing to help researchers so that a similar diagnosis might not be as disastrous for others as it might be for them. In all, 50,000 patients participated in trials in the UK in 2017/2018.
As Emergency Department doctors, we were always going to be on the frontline. In spring 2020, we were taken to one side and it was suggested we might have to say goodbye to our relatives for the foreseeable future. Few realise the fear generated in hospitals in 2020.
On the 1st of June 2022, NHS England issued further guidance regarding the use of face masks in clinical settings. In what could be – optimistically – construed as further progress towards the Government’s ‘Living with covid’ goal, this latest official briefing directs hospitals and other care settings to end the requirement for staff, patients and visitors to wear face coverings in most wards and departments.
We are now well over two years into the Covid pandemic and heading into summer. At this point the Government has long-since dropped all the Covid mandates and told the public that we must “learn to live with Covid”; hospitality venues, bars and theatres are full of people socialising and enjoying themselves; face masks are now a far rarer sight in shops and on public transport; and there are more smiles and spontaneous hugs being seen in public.
The evidence that masking healthy people in community settings reduces viral transmission is – at best – weak and contradictory. In light of this lack of empirical support for the effectiveness of face coverings, together with the multiple harms associated with them, HART welcomes the lifting of all mask mandates in the UK.
Following our recent article highlighting isolation and neglect in care homes, we are appalled to report that the situation is only slowly improving. What is more, many NHS sites are still imposing draconian and vindictive policies. Children are being separated from parents and dying relatives are being abandoned to a lonely end.
Over the last 7 months, a group of health professionals and scientists have written repeatedly to the MHRA, the JCVI and the Chief Medical Officers regarding the safety data (or lack of) for covid-19 vaccinations for children. These letters have gone largely unanswered.
Changing the total population estimate results in large swings in the estimate of ‘case’ rates in the unvaccinated. Given the inability to be accurate within a few percentage points, and the uncertainty about whether the inaccuracies are overestimating or underestimating the total, the differences between populations is not as informative as the trend in rates within each of the populations.
