On Wednesday 26th January from 10:30-12:00, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for First Do No Harm (APPG FDNH) will hold a virtual public meeting on the topic of redress schemes for those who have suffered avoidable harm linked to pelvic mesh, sodium valproate and Primodos.
This meeting will be an opportunity to hear from representatives of various patient groups about what victims need and what they are missing from current support mechanisms. Officers and members of the APPG FDNH will also provide an update on the Health and Care Bill, which will have passed through Committee in the House of Lords earlier that month.
The meeting will be Chaired by Baroness Cumberlege (Co-Chair, APPG FDNH), who will be joined on a virtual panel by representatives of the following patient groups, as well as Officers and members of the APPG FDNH:
- Sling the Mesh
- Organisation for Anti-Convulsant Syndrome (OACS)
- Association for Children Damaged by Hormone Pregnancy Tests (ACDHPT)
- Independent Fetal Anti-Convulsant Trust (IN-FACT)
Attendees will have the opportunity to put forward questions during the meeting and are invited to follow the event on social media by using #Redress and #FirstDoNoHarm.
