Nearly 12,000 people die needlessly in hospital every year, according to findings published in the British Medical Journal.

Almost 1,000 patients are dying needlessly in NHS hospitals every month because of botched care, according to a new study.

Researchers found evidence that patients are being misdiagnosed, prescribed the wrong drugs, or given inadequate fluid replacement.

Others were poorly monitored, the doctors warn.

The research was revealed just a day after a coroner strongly criticised medical staff who let a patient on a hospital ward die from dehydration.

Grandmother dies from kidney failure after Indian doctor misdiagnoses her condition as HOOKWORM common on sub-continent

Grandmother dies from kidney failure after Indian doctor misdiagnoses her condition as HOOKWORM common on sub-continent | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Dr Neeraj Tekkar wrongly believed Eva Hudson was suffering from the infection common in the sub-continent when she was rushed to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset.

Doctor reassured grandmother's family she had hookworm and sent her home.
Coroner says 'neglect' a contributory factor to her death.
Doctor still working at Royal Bournemouth Hospital but GMC says his position is 'under review'.

A grandmother died after an Indian doctor made a ‘catastrophic error’ by misdiagnosing kidney failure for a poverty-related infection common in the sub-continent.
Dr Neeraj Tekkar wrongly believed Eva Hudson was suffering from hookworm when she was rushed to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset.
Hookworm is parasitic infection of the intestines that is prevalent in underdeveloped parts of the world like southern India but is rare in Britain.
Dr Tekkar had only moved to the UK in 2009 and started working at Bournemouth Hospital in 2011.
In fact Mrs Hudson, 77, was suffering from kidney disease which Dr Tekkar did not spot and the mother-of-three and grandmother-of-five died four days later.
At an inquest into her death, a coroner recorded a verdict that Mrs Hudson died of natural causes with 'neglect a contributory factor'.
Mr Sheriff Payne, the Bournemouth coroner, added that she may have been alive today had she received proper treatment.
He said: 'He came up with a novel diagnosis that she was suffering from hookworm - he reassured the family.

'He effectively ignored readings that showed renal impairment. He should have got further advice on that aspect and not let her leave the hospital.
'I think she may well have been saved or lived longer if there had been more attention carried out.'

Dr Tekkar is still working at Bournemouth Hospital but his position is currently under review by the General Medical Council.
Afterwards Mrs Hudson’s daughter Julie Sansome blasted the Dr Tekkar, who qualified as a doctor in India in 2003, as well as hospital bosses.
She said: 'Dr Tekkar made a catastrophic error of judgement in misdiagnosing my mum.
'However, we feel the blame must also fall on the shoulders of the Royal Bournemouth Hospital for allowing him to be left unsupervised in a situation where he was able to make life or death decisions.'

The Bournemouth inquest heard that Mrs Hudson, from Moordown, Bournemouth, first became unwell last October and lost two-and-a-half stones in weight.

She was taken to hospital by ambulance on December 18 when she was seen by Dr Tekkar.
He diagnosed hookworm as he suspected that Mrs Hudson could have caught it from faeces when looking after her daughter’s dog.
The doctor told the inquest that he identified hookworm as 'a possible diagnosis in the absence of an obvious cause.'
He added: 'I understand it is not very common in this country.'
He then sent her home to recover, a decision later questioned by his superiors.
Dr Karim Hassan, lead consultant at Bournemouth Hospital, said: 'It is a big lesson. Any incidents of such calibre are taken very seriously.
'We have made sure that this case has been well discussed and all the lessons have been learned.'
Asked if Mrs Hudson should have been allowed home, he added: 'My clinical sense would have indicated to me to investigate further.'
Mrs Hudson was rushed back in to hospital three days later on December 21. She then underwent a CT scan and an emergency operation was carried out on her. She died the following day.
The cause of her death was given as complications from a strangulated hernia and kidney disease.
The GMC is due to make a decision on Dr Tekkar’s position in the near future.
Mrs Hudson worked as a shop assistant and had a cleaning job. She leaves daughters Julie Sansome, Sharon Brown and son Michael and five grandchildren.

Soldier with nine years service dies after NHS refuse him treatment

Soldier with nine years service dies after NHS refuse him treatment | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
An ex soldier who courageously took on tight fisted NHS chiefs in his fight against terminal cancer has passed away aged 37.

Mark Bannister, who served in Northern Ireland and Bosnia during nine years in the army, was forced to hide the truth from doctors to get life-prolonging treatment that was denied to him by a shambolic postcode lottery.

Hospital bosses declined to finance the cost of his medicine despite it being widely obtainable just 15 miles from Mark’s home in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

He spent six months praying and pleading to be prescribed the drug Avastin but was only given it when he enrolled at practice in Sheffield, having to pretend he had moved in with a friend.

It was only then Mark had his request granted and he was administered his first treatment within 7 days.

But harrowingly the tumour he had struggled against for nearly a decade had progressed too far for the treatment to work.

The doting father of two died early on Monday morning held by his distraught wife Karen.

In a glowing tribute to her husband, Karen said: “Who knows what would have happened if he had got the drug sooner - I truly believe it would have helped him.

“He was forced to lie. We were told his chemotherapy wasn’t working and he had to either let the tumour grow or have the Avastin - we didn’t have a choice.

“How can it be so easy for some people to get it and other people are told they can’t have it at all?
“The system is completely unfair.
“We had to lie while Mark was still alive, but I don’t care who knows now.

I would urge anyone else who is going through the same thing to do what we did.
"I only wish we had done it sooner.”
It was first established Mark was suffering with a brain tumour in 2003 but after a long, brave battle he was informed last year that his cancer had developed further.

NHS bosses refused to fund the treatment despite a specialist vowing the drug could give him some extra time with his young children Sophie, 7, and Thomas, 5.

The drug prevents blood vessels reaching the tumour and for a ten-month course costs £21,000. Doctors said Mark had just 12 months left to live without the prescription.

Emotionally, Mark and Karen renewed their marriage vows last November on their tenth wedding anniversary as the future was so uncertain.

Prior to his passing, Mark made memory boxes for both Sophie and Thomas, leaving them memorable photographs and medals from his spell in the army.

Karen said: “As he died, I was holding him and cuddling him and telling him I loved him.
“I don’t think his death has sunk in yet - I don’t think I totally believe it.

I still have to break it to the children and I don’t know what I will say to them.
“Mark has written them both letters saying how much he loves them and how he is sorry he won’t get to see them grow up.

“Even after he got the Avastin he continued to campaign against the postcode lottery on behalf of others and I want to continue to do the same. It’s what he would have wanted.”

Callously, NHS Lincolnshire said judgements to finance such medicines are centred on clear clinical evidence, cost-effectiveness, the benefit to patient and consideration of national guidance.

The British National Party would like to see the end of the so called postcode lottery in healthcare.

It is nothing short of a disgrace that a former soldier, who fought for this country, was left with no choice but to lie in order to try and preserve his life once he was back in the “safety” of the UK.

You must treat illegal immigrants or face legal action, GPs are warned

You must treat illegal immigrants or face legal action, GPs are warned | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

GPs are being warned that they face legal action if they refuse to accept illegal immigrants as patients.
Human rights lawyers have been threatening doctors who have removed failed asylum seekers from their surgery lists – even though they are not entitled to free NHS care.


Meanwhile, figures reveal that foreigners, including tourists and migrants, have been given an estimated £40million of free NHS treatment in the past three years.
Anyone who does normally live in the UK – including tourists – is meant to pay for any NHS treatment they receive. The only exceptions are urgent care received in A&E departments or treatment for certain infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.
Refugees and asylum seekers are given free NHS treatment, but if their application to remain in the UK is turned down by the Home Office they lose the entitlement.
But government guidelines on when to provide free healthcare are vague and simply advise GPs to ‘use their discretion’.
Figures obtained by Pulse magazine show that some hospitals are managing to claw back only a quarter of the costs owed to them by so-called health tourists.
