  • Stop fertility patients being penalised due to Covid
    So here is our story and why i feel strongly enough about this to start a petition. Myself and my husband have been trying for a child now for close to two and a half years, after a year and a half we were referred to a fertility specialist in Glasgow and we got our first appointment in Oct 2019, we saw Dr Sastry who was wonderful and extremely helpful, we were advised however that we could not go on the list for IVF until we had been trying for at least 2 years which we expected so this was fine. We had some scans done to check that everything was ok and it was found that i have what looks like a cyst on one ovary and also on the other side what could be a cyst or a possible blockage of a tube they couldn't tell so at this point we were advised the best thing to happen would be surgery to check, we were fine with this and were placed on a waiting list. There were some other conditions for the IVF too i had to lose weight and get my BMI under 30, this was also expected so i got to work on losing the weight. At this point we were so relieved that things were moving forward and we had a plan, for anyone going through struggles with fertility its easy to feel lost and like your getting no where. All was going well we received a date for surgery the 31st March and we received a letter for our next appointment with the fertility specialist for April this would be to get weighed and be put on the IVF waiting list. Then Covid struck and everything fell apart, not just for us but for every other couple waiting for fertility treatment. A week before my surgery i got the call that it was cancelled, it was expected but still a shock and upsetting and then in came the letter that the appointment at the fertility clinic was postponed then shortly after cancelled. I was devastated, id lost the 22lbs to get my weight where it needed to be and id been mentally preparing myself for the next stage of our journey. Luckily we contacted our specialists secretary who advised our specialist that i'd lost the weight and she agreed to add us to the waiting list. Now to why do a petition? In Scotland if your under 40 you get 3 rounds of IVF on the NHS if your 40 as long as they think your chances are good, and you have a good egg reserve etc you will get 1 round, so, what about those people including ourselves that would of had time for 2 or 3 rounds but due to Covid will only get 1, what about those of us waiting on surgery whose surgeons aren't doing gynecological surgery at the moment but when you ask about being referred to a surgeon who is they suggest they send you materials on having it done private? Why should couples be penalised for delays outwith their control? This petition is for allowances to be made for those couples effected by the delays, if someone turns 40 before treatment can be given however they are in good health and have a healthy egg reserve why shouldn't they receive the 2 or 3 rounds they would of had if Covid hadn't hit. My specialist advised that the best way to get the government to look at this was to shout about it, so here i am, shouting, please shout with me.

  • IKEA cuts sick pay during Covid-19
    IKEA doesn't just sell furniture it serves food. Having restaurant coworkers drag themselves in to work when they are infectious is extremely dangerous to the public. Do you want to be fed by someone with Covid-19? IKEA's profits are very high at the moment due to a boom in home furniture sales caused by people not being able to go abroad on holiday and by other venues being closed. Therefore this is most probably a case of pure corporate greed.

  • HM Government must improve Coronavirus testing
    Across the UK care home staff, social care workers and NHS staff are still calling for better and more frequent testing to allow them to avoid infecting their patients and their colleagues. Better testing leads to less virus transmission, which in turn leads to fewer deaths. We call on the government to put resources and effort behind the production, distribution and processing of Coronavirus tests to make better use of available laboratory testing capacity. * Test laboratory capacity on Mon 3 Aug 2020: 338,413 Daily tests processed on Tue 11 Aug 2020: 164,061 Data from coronavirus.data.gov.uk on Thu 13 Aug 2020.

  • Come clean about PPE and publish all the contracts
    Many hundreds of frontline healthcare workers have contracted Covid-19 and died. Details of the PPE fiasco that left them further exposed are now starting to emerge. The Government has committed £15 billion for buying PPE. Shockingly, three of the biggest beneficiaries so far are companies specialising in pest control, a confectionery wholesaler and an opaque family fund owned through a tax haven. Now, the Government has admitted that 50 million masks that they purchased from the opaque family fund “will not be used in the NHS” because of safety concerns. It means PPE which should be delivered to the NHS to protect frontline staff is now piled up in warehouses gathering dust. Why did the Government award vast amounts of public money to companies like this? And how many more of these contracts have failed to deliver PPE to the NHS? We don’t know. The Government is ignoring the usual rule that contracts should be published within 20 days. To prevent future PPE procurement failures and protect taxpayers’ money we need to uncover the truth of what really happened. Will you sign the petition and call on the Government to publish the PPE contracts?

  • Public Inquiry into Systemic Abuse at Muckamore Abbey Hospital
    This is the largest adult safeguarding investigation in the UK of its kind. The PSNI has examined CCTV footage and has so far established that there have been more than 1500 criminal assaults on patients in a 6 bed ward in a time period of 6 months. Two weeks ago yet another staff member was sacked from the hospital for abuse on a patient. The abuse is continuing. There can be no tolerance of abuse and it is critical that the individuals and institutions responsible should be held to account. That includes those who were directly responsible for the abuses but crucially also, the institutions and individuals responsible for systemic failures or whose action or inaction otherwise permitted the abuse to occur. These people were in the care of the state and are amongst the most vulnerable in society. http://www.irishnews.com/news/northernirelandnews/2020/07/29/news/petition-calls-for-muckamore-inquiry-as-fresh-safeguarding-incident-emerges-2018817/

  • Change the list of where masks are required to include museums
    The UK Government's list of places where masks are NOT required to be worn includes museums. I think this is wrong and I am looking to persuade the Goverment to change this rule. Museums vary in size and space, and a blanket rule where visitors are not required to wear masks doesn't protect staff and volunteers in these venues. There are more than 50 attractions in the UK that are underground. They are perfectly able to reopen under the current social distancing guidelines, but both staff and visitors are at risk where visitors are not required to wear masks. All the medical advice suggests that masks do not protect the wearer. They are worn to protect others when the wearer might be infectious. Protect museum staff. Covid 19 has not yet gone away. If museum staff have to wear personal protective equipment to protect visitors, make it compulsory for visitors to wear masks in return.

  • Stop making NHS workers pay car park charges at their place of work
    Hospital car park charges are not cheap and they impact everyone forced to go to their local hospital. It is bad enough visitors and outpatients have to pay to make an unavoidable visit to a hospital. It is unacceptable to make NHS employees pay these inflated charges as they arrive at work. They take a significant amount of money from NHS workers pay packets.

  • Save NHS Dentistry in Northern Ireland
    NHS services will be impossible to provide under the new Coronavirus Regulations, and those already in poverty will be hit hardest. New regulations requiring dentists to vacate surgeries for one hour after carrying out ‘aerosol generating procedures’ such as drilling, fillings and root canals, will drastically reduce the number of patients they can see, and make it financially impossible for surgeries to offer treatment under the NHS. Those in poverty often delay treatment due to the cost of dental charges. Without a good NHS system their oral health, including diagnoses of serious conditions like mouth cancer is going to suffer and their general health will follow suit.
