Write to Your MP (No One’s Listening Report)
On Monday 15th November 2021, the Sickle Cell Society and All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia published an inquiry report into the avoidable deaths and failures of care for sickle cell patients in secondary care.
The groundbreaking inquiry, led by Rt Hon Pat McFadden MP, Chair of the APPG on Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia, has found “serious care failings” in acute services and evidence of attitudes underpinned by racism.
