Germ Awareness www.germawareness.co.uk Domain Name For Sale.

With the new Covid-19 variant ‘Omicron’ announcements from Boris Johnson yesterday declaring an emergency booster roll out, it is only fitting to teach the population about germ awareness and cross-contamination.

The Prime Minister said that the country is facing an emergency in its battle with the new variant, adding that no one should be in any doubt that a tidal wave of Omicron is coming and two doses do not afford enough protection. He warned: “Do not make the mistake of thinking Omicron can’t hurt you; can’t make you and your loved ones seriously ill.

Note From The Editor

Considering some people are complacent about germs, what I mean by this is young people in general who have no regard for authority, will do as they please and their way of thinking is rules can be broken.

In fact, I know that lateral tests are sent via text message from the NHS, so what is stopping a young person from copying and pasting the text, changing the Name and DOB of the Recipient they are Forwarding the message on to (their friend who has not has a test done and who has not been vaccinated) for the recipient to change the name of their contact to NHS?

If the government thinks this is not going on, then they are very naive.

The nightclub doormen check the phones but do they go as far as checking the contact name has not been purposely changed to look like it was the NHS that sent the text? I highly doubt it, that is why we are in the mess now.

The consequences of people’s actions cause a domino effect and in turn catastrophic events.

What the Government & NHS should do when sending out text messages is have a photo document rather than text that cannot be edited. They should also get doormen of nightclubs and venues to cross-reference lateral flow tests and passports on the NHS app using a tablet on entry to verify the person using a unique number or barcode. The Government should also impose hefty fines for anyone attempting to scam them.

COVID-19_SMS_and_Text_Message_Scams

How about lockdowns? I have heard on the grapevine and wrote about it before when we had the first lockdown, young people turn their phones and smart TVs off and party like there is no tomorrow. The pen pushers in Government need to get their act together and have their ears down to the ground to see exactly what is going on.

Proof of people trying to scam the system.

Eight People Charged.

Houston Man receives nine years.

If the new variant is spiraling out of control, I have one question, if everyone was careful, to begin with, and washed their hands, maintained social distancing, not had any Christmas Parties during Lockdown, how come we are on an imminent ‘Tidal Wave’ where the Covid alert level has been raised from 3 to 4 due to the rapid spread of cases?

With the new variant ‘Omnicron’, on our doorstep, this domain name www.germawareness.co.uk is an excellent opportunity to teach how germs are spread.

It could also have an eCommerce shop selling PPE and antibacterial products and a community forum. This domain could also act as a platform to teach children about germs.

Obviously, there will always be people that think that rules do not apply to them and will be complacent about the virus and no amount of media amplification will change their way of thinking, however, the government needs to watch the young people and what they are doing and keep their ears at ground level.

Furthermore, a Covid passport covers you for 3 weeks but what if you do not know you are a carrier, how is the passport supposed to protect the population?

I should be the next prime minister, move over BJ.

GP appointments & Negligence

GP Negligence!

One illness per GP appointment.

GP Appointments & Negligence, Lack of duty of care.

Patients are being told that doctors are too busy to cope with more 20-minute appointments that they have restricted calls for 10 minutes and to only discuss one ailment per consultation.

Critics say it could put people off discussing important health issues.

People who are vulnerable who have ongoing mental health issues or have multiple issues may be reluctant to phone multiple times.

According to some surgeries dealing with more than one health issue can increase the chances of a mistake. (A GP should not make mistakes, although I have proof that they do, with my daughter being prescribed Gaviscon by the GP yet the A&E diagnosed my daughter with Multiple Sclerosis).

My calculation is if the surgery did an eight-hour shift and had 20-minute consultations, would be 24 patients a day multiplied by 5 doctors would be 120 patients a day multiplied by 5 days would be 600 people a week or 2,400 patients per month that they could consult.

Not everyone comes to the surgery every week or every month, so what are doctors doing if they are having problems with time management?

GPs are insisting that patients raise only one problem per appointment because they are so short of time.

According to the Mail Online (January 2017), those with multiple ailments are being banned from booking longer 20-minute consultations – instead of being told to book a standard ten-minute appointment for each condition they want to discuss.

A ten-minute slot would equate to 6 slots per hour multiplied by 8 hours, which equates to 48 patients per day per Doctor. (48 patients per day per 10 min slots  x 5 GP’s = 240 patients per day x 5 days = 1,200 patients per week x 4 weeks = 4.800 patients per month).

Surgeries are increasingly introducing a controversial policy to cope with rising demand. But campaigners described the rules as ‘outrageous’ and warned they would put off patients from discussing potentially important health worries.

Practices across the UK have adopted the ‘one problem per appointment’ policy which claims it is to improve ‘clinical safety. However, there is a real increased risk that mistakes will be made and things missed as the Doctor may be inclined to rush, particularly if other patients are waiting.’ Other Surgeries have gone one step further by banning any long appointments for multiple health issues.

GP surgeries are under pressure from the rising and aging population on top of a recruitment crisis of family doctors. NHS figures published in December 2016 showed that in some parts of the country the number of patients on surgery lists has soared by 30 percent in just three years.

Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, said: ‘It is outrageous that patients are being told there are rules around the health problems that can be discussed.

We hear so frequently from patients who struggle to even get an appointment that I’m confident most would take such an opportunity to ask about a secondary or less-urgent health concern.

‘Our concerns are that patients will not be given the opportunity, or maybe put off, from asking for medical advice because of this rule, which is a very serious patient safety risk.’

Dr. Helen Stokes-Lampard, chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said she was ‘saddened by the move. She added: ‘For a lot of consultations, particularly for people with chronic diseases or any psychological element to it, to be pressured into ten minutes is really unhelpful.’

Note from the Editor.

In Consideration of the above article, the Editor (myself) who has multiple health issues wrote a nine-page letter to the GP back in May of this year. I sent it via email with an attachment marked as private and confidential. I received an email back from the practice manager who said that she had read the letter (Not addressed to her) and that I needed to discuss my concerns by making a phone call to the GP even though it clearly stated in the letter what my concerns were.

(The GP could have phoned the patient (aka me) to discuss the concerns rather than ignore me altogether).

So, six months later seeing I never received a letter from the GP or a phone call, I happened to be chasing up a missing prescription for my daughter and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and asked for the GP to phone me only to be told I would have to phone back the following day to book a consultation. I replied just mark it on the system that I need the doctor to phone me.

By all accounts, the person I was speaking to could not pass on a message as I will explain.

I related that the letter I wrote in May clearly stated my concerns and that it could be marked on the system for the GP to phone me and that I should not be chasing the GP. The receptionist (male) said he would pass the message on so I thought…

Within minutes of the call ending the practice manager phoned demanding that I phone back the following day to book a consultation, she never said what time, but I presume at 8 am when the lines get jammed from people trying to make appointments for a good half hour to an hour, only to be told the slots are gone and to phone back the day after. This has happened previously to me so maybe the system has changed; I do not know, as I hardly ever phone the GP, I prefer everything in writing?

I said that the doctor should phone me and for the practice manager to pass the message on, who replied the doctor is too busy to read letters or correspond to them and that unless I phoned back in the morning to book a consultation the doctor will not be phoning me.

My reply was, I had to drop what I was doing today to speak with the practice manager that did not schedule a call and did not even ask if it was OK to talk. I continued to say I am also busy and that this call was inconvenient to which the practice manager raised her voice and in a stern tone said “Goodbye” and cut me off by ending the call.

If the GP does not phone me tomorrow, I will go out of my way to name and shame the practice and sue them for negligence for my escalation of health issues and emotional distress.

If I work into the early hours of the morning, I am not going to get up especially early to phone the surgery to ask for the GP to phone me when I have spoken with three people in total that could easily put a post-it note, on the GP’s desk to phone me. It is not difficult.

The overall way they treat their patients does not surprise me why people get agitated. If I were an elderly person, I would not be ringing back, this could then cause the persons’ health to deteriorate even more.

I speak on behalf of everyone who has problems speaking to their GP for multiple health issues. If a letter has been received and as per the phone call today which confirmed my ailments have been put on the system, you would think the care of duty by the clinician should have followed it up, but they have not, which in my way of thinking is negligence.

I suffer from depression and anxiety I am an advocate for mental health and have a website specifically for disabilities www.disabledentrepreneur.uk

I am not ashamed to admit it, I do struggle with anxiety and depression most days and some days are easier than others.

I lost my ex-husband and a family friend this year and around May time, which felt I needed some support from my GP hence wrote the letter not only discussing my mental health but other multiple ailments. Had I have had suicidal thoughts you would not be reading this right now because of my GP’s incompetence.

Imagine someone with a similar health issue relying on the GP to get in touch with them, I dread to think how many people have had their symptoms get worse because of the lack of duty of care by the clinician.

I have now spoken to three people in total over my letter including a cluster pharmacist who phoned me to discuss my medication who also told me she had read my letter and I quote “The letter was very thorough which is what GP’s like”, yet no one has followed up on my health issues?

I did write a while ago about doctor / patient confidentiality:

Some people also have anxiety phoning their GP’s:

Microgynon 30 – www.Bayer.co.uk Contraceptive Pill.

Microgynon 30 Contaceptive Pill.

Meddygfa Albany Surgery Cardiff.

Meddygfa Albany Surgery Cardiff Google 1.7 Star Reviews: https://cutt.ly/AxG031z (Url too long so I shortned it).

Address: 219-221 City Rd, Cardiff CF24 3JD Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 6:30PM Phone: 029 2048 6561

Meddygfa Albany Surgery Cardiff is on my radar again, despite me going into the surgery a few years ago with my daughter and saying “under no circumstances should my daughter be prescribed” ‘Rigevidon’ which was logged on the system.

So moving forward to the present day the Doctor has prescribed it again, peer pressuring my daughter by saying the reason why they cannot prescribe ‘Microgynon 30’ stating it is because the NHS are not supplying it any longer and the words were and I quote that “Rigevidon is the same contraceptive pill as Microgynon 30 just in different packaging”.

“To say something is the same as another is called passing off and is illegal to do”.

Forgive me for being cynical here but since when is a GP a branding expert (I am a branding expert, they are not) and also they certainly are not a pharamaceutical lab researcher/scientist?

Since when does a GP or the NHS have the right to use people as Guinea Pigs?

The reason why I am making a ‘hoo ha’ about this is because ‘Rigevidon’ has had ‘Bad Press’ and as a carer it is my duty to intervene when it comes to my daughter’s health.

PRESS.

PETITION.

https://www.change.org/p/medical-remove-the-contraceptive-pill-rigevidon-from-the-nhs

MORE PRESS.

Rigevidon is a “copycat” version of Microgynon 30 and produced by Gedeon Richter, a manufacturing company that can sell the drug for cheaper, (it is not the same as Microgynon).

‘Microgynon 30’ is produced by Bayer, a Research and Development company that has tested their product on “thousands” of people. 

There is no data to say that the NHS cannot obtain supplies of the drug Microgynon 30 and I suspect that depending on the NHS budget will depend if they are able to acquire the drug or not. https://thetab.com/uk/2020/02/07/theres-a-shortage-of-certain-contraceptive-pills-in-the-uk-142775

I may be mistaken but I have not read anything to the contrary about the supply of the drug other than on this article: https://pharmaceutical-journal.com/article/news/contraceptive-pills-to-go-out-of-stock-for-months-resulting-from-capacity-issues and that was two years ago.

If a patient is happy with a drug they have been prescribed and are getting on well with, they should not have their health compromised for the sake of a cost cutting exercise, to be prescribed a cheaper drug.

A spokesman for Gedeon Richter told Express.co.uk: “Many side effects and risks are considered to be class effects of COCs, like bleeding disturbances, mood swings, depression, decreased sexual desire, weight gain, acne and fatigue.

So if there all these side effects why are pharmaceutical companies and the GP’s playing russsian roulette with peoples health?

In my opinion if a drug is not 100% safe it should not be on the market.

I will be contacting ‘Bayer’ for comment to see if they have a problem with manufacturing and supplies: https://www.bayer.co.uk/en/

We will soon see where the problem lies…

Stand up for your rights and you know better than anyone if something suits you or not.

If you have been on a medication for years and all of a sudden the NHS decide to switch brands you have to read the small print as not all drugs are made the same and you need to discuss your concerns with a professional abled body such as your own GP or Pharmacy.

Do your research and if you have to, get a second opinion.

My Thoughts.

I will update this post in due course as soon as I get more information.

The pharmacist who spoke to my daughter today whilst she was on loudspeaker with myself present and another person accused my daughter of raising her voice at her, even though my daughter was being polite and courteous.

This is not the first time this surgery have been defensive and rude and basically said my daughter will not be prescribed ‘Microgynon’ because her explanation why she did not want to take it was not good enough.

I will be making a formal complaint about this surgery and they basically said that if my daughter really needed it she should get it privately and when my daughter said she would go private the person said she would update the records, not sure what that implies?

UPDATE.

I spoke to Bayer.co.uk this afternoon and was told as far as they are aware Microgynon 30 is still being supplied to the NHS without any issues. I forwarded the link to this post to them for further comment.

Am awaiting further response.

Last Update 26/03/21 at 17.13 hours.

New Update 29/03/21

I wrote to the surgery by email here is the screenshot:

So today I get a response from the surgery saying they could not talk about my daughter as my daughter has not given consent. So I asked my daughter to send them an email and they replied back because my daughters email was not on their system they could not continue the discussion.

Obviously I was not going to let this slide so I phoned the practice manager and this was her reponse:

Because my daughter’s email has never been registered with them, they are not prepared to accept my daughter’s consent and she would have to physically come in and sign a form and I said my daugher has MS and cannot walk very well and she said SORRY sacracasticly but that is GDPR ruling. What happened about not coming to the surgery unless it was for emergencies due to Covid Regulations?

My daugher already confirmed who she was by email including giving them her DOB and signature……. They were just being awkward.

Furthermore, the practice manager said I had a “LACK OF RESPECT” to their highly qualified pharmacist and their clinicians and therefore it would be in my best interest to find another practice that could offer me better advice.

Considering a Doctor prescribed Gaviscon for my daugher’s tingling and pins and needles in her feet a few years ago and upon me admitting my daugher to A&E it was found she has Multiple Sclerosis it obviously says how qualified their Clinicians are and for me to have a lack of respect.

One should earn respect in order to get respect. If there is a lack of trust between the patient and the health professional, one has to look at the bigger picture why that is ?

Not once did the practice manager apologise for the rudeness of the ‘Highly Qualified Pharamacist’ and then tried to be patronising by saying if I want to get information off the INTERNET and believe everything that is written including the Sun Newspaper then that was my prerogative, but she omitted to mention ITV conveniently.

The practice manager then threatened me and told me to find another surgery.

I responded that with the 1.7 Google ratings they should be greatful to have as many patients as they could. She continued to say that the NHS have stopped giving out ‘Microgynon’ and I should take it up with Welsh Government.

Now the Domino Effect Has Started.

THE DOMINO EFFECT.

I suffer with OCD I have anxiety attacks and depression and this surgery has made me feel really ill to the extent I cannot face work. My OCD levels have risen all because of this surgery, who do not respect patients health.

I am self employed, I cannot take time off work and go on the sick as I have obligations. My OCD has got worse because of this surgery.

“All I was doing was looking out for the best interest of my daugher and I am obliged as my daughter’s carer to oversee any issues arising from health risks and was simply outlining my concerns and not disrespecting anyone”.

I have been told by the same surgery in the past that the NHS are not obliged to help anyone (this is documented in one of my previous posts) https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/2020/07/29/meddygfa-albany-surgery/

Furthermore my daughter just had a phone call from Cardiff & Vale Health Board who said as far as they are aware the NHS is giving out the contraceptive pill ‘Microgynon’ to all its surgeries and obviously the surgery I have referred to Meddygfa Albany Surgery City Road, Cardiff, must know something they do not.

The practice manager went on to say it is not a cost cutting exercise as they do not pay for the drugs and only the NHS do and that my daughter needs to go to a sexual clinic if she want ‘Microgynon’ and they have been told by the NHS do not prescribe the medication. (This is where she and the ‘highly qualified pharmacist have contradicted themselves advising on both occasions to seek the medication from a NHS Sexual Health Clinic but in the same breath saying the NHS are not stocking the brand and that their surgery is not prescribing it).

The surgery has pushed my buttons too many times and I will take it up with the Welsh Government and the Ombudsman and will tag the surgery to my post as people should not be threatened especially by a health professional that they depend on to prescribe repeat prescriptions and should take on board any anxieties a patient might have. My daughter was also threatened by the pharmacist last week from the same surgery that called my daugher back that if she was not happy with their decision she should leave the surgery and find a new one. Again my daugher depends on repeat prescription medication.

My hands are shaking from todays fiasco.

The NHS is still providing the contraceptive pill, end of argument.

Do Dispensing Surgeries get paid by Pharma Companies.

Polyethylene glycol (PEG Allergy) as a cause of anaphylaxis

Polyethylene glycol (PEG Allergy) as a cause of anaphylaxis

Disclaimer: This article is intended for people who have concerns about PEG Allergies and who need to safeguard their health and that of their families. It is NOT intended for those who are anti-vaccine and as such is NOT intended to adopt a discussion on the merits of vaccines on this blog. It is also NOT intended as an invitation for a discussion of the lethality of COVID-19 or the need for civic action to limit the spread of the disease.

Adverse Reactions.

I wrote my concerns about the adverse effects of having the Covid Vaccine in a previous article, I have since read further medical concerns which I will publish along with all the fact checking citations.

People who have had a severe PEG Allergy in the past are advised to talk to a health professional before taking the vaccine.

The link to my previous article is below:

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) as a cause of anaphylaxis

Polyethylene glycols (PEGs) or macrogols are polyether compounds and are widely used as additives in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food.

PEGs are also used in everyday products such as toothpaste and shampoo as thickeners, solvents, softeners, and moisture carriers, and they’ve been used as a laxative for decades. An increasing number of biopharmaceuticals include PEGylated compounds as well.

According to the MIT, PEGs are basically tiny, greasy spheres that are used in COVID vaccines to protect the active ingredient (mRNA) and help it penetrate cells. It is within cells that the mRNA can go to work priming the immune system.

PEGs have also been confirmed to cause allergic reactions in rare cases, but how rare is not known.

PEG-2000 is an ingredient used in both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. If the compound is found to be the cause of the six allergic reactions to date, it will help the CDC hone their guidance further by narrowing the list of those that should not receive the vaccine.

Instead, CDC guidelines recommend not giving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines to anyone with a history of severe allergic reaction to any component of the vaccine. For people who have had a severe reaction to another vaccine or injectable medication, the risks and benefits of vaccination should be carefully weighed, CDC says.

Patients with undiagnosed PEG allergy often have a history of immediate onset-unexplained anaphylaxis or anaphylaxis to multiple classes of drugs or an unexplained anaphylaxis. Such individuals should not be vaccinated with the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, except on the expert advice of an allergy specialist. The AstraZeneca vaccine can be used as an alternative (unless otherwise contraindicated), particularly if they previously tolerated an injected influenza vaccine. The vaccine should be administered in a setting with full resuscitation facilities (e.g. a hospital), and a 30 minute observation period is recommended.

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis (pronounced ana-fil-ax-is) is a severe and often sudden allergic reaction. It can occur when someone with allergies is exposed to something, they are allergic to (known as an allergen). Reactions usually begin within minutes and rapidly progress but can occur up to 2-3 hours later.

What are the causes of anaphylaxis?


The common causes of anaphylaxis include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, sesame seeds and kiwi fruit, although many other foods have also been known to trigger anaphylaxis. Some people can react to tiny amounts of food, although this rarely causes a very severe reaction. Non-food causes include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber), and certain drugs such as penicillin. In some people exercise can trigger a severe reaction – either on its own or in combination with other factors such as food or drugs (for example, aspirin).

European anaphylaxis-registry with currently 7935 registered anaphylactic cases only three were induced by macrogol. These findings may imply that polyethylene glycol hypersensitivity is potentially life-threatening but probably underdiagnosed as many drugs and food items contain macrogol. Handling patients with macrogol hypersensitivity can be challenging because of the extensive allergologic work up, the necessity of the physician’s expertise and the limited avoidance options because many drugs, including those used for the treatment of allergic reactions such as antihistamines may contain macrogol as an additive. Therefore, specific product labeling and awareness is required. Patients should be educated about drugs which may contain PEGs, but also other products like lubricants or ultrasound gels. An increased patient and physician awareness to the allergic potential of macrogol must be discussed before taking the Covid Vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warns:

If you have had a severe allergic reaction—also known as anaphylaxis—to any ingredient in the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, you should not get vaccinated.*

*If you have had a severe allergic reaction to other vaccines or injectable therapies, ask your doctor if you should get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Your doctor will help you decide if it is safe for you to get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

PEG-2000 is an ingredient used in both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. If the compound is found to be the cause of the six allergic reactions to date, it will help the CDC hone their guidance further by narrowing the list of those that should not receive the vaccine. https://snacksafely.com/2020/12/what-we-know-about-peg-suspected-as-the-cause-of-reactions-to-pfizers-covid-19-vaccine/

FINAL THOUGHTS

If you have doubts speak to your local health care provider, a health professional before taking the vaccine.

From personal experience my daughters GP failed to mention that the reaction she had from an MRI contrast dye could well have been an anaphylaxis allergy and was not advised about having her second vaccine. This is very worrying considering the same GP practice prescribed her Gaviscon which later transpired after we went to A&E that my daughter did not have gastric problems but was in fact diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

CAUTION

Vulnerable People Who Have Had: https://www.lemtrada.com/

Vulnerable People who have had Alemtuzumab should get additional medical advice before taking the PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE.

My daughter was treated with this drug Alemtuzuzumab.

Alemtuzumab WAS a medication used to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia and multiple sclerosis. On July 3, 2020 Sanofi Genzyme was notified that our Lemtrada Home Phlebotomy Partner, Examination Management Services Inc., (EMSI) has gone out of business.

What Lemtrada warning said:

LEMTRADA can cause serious side effects including:

Serious autoimmune problems: Some people receiving LEMTRADA develop a condition where the immune cells in your body attack other cells or organs in the body (autoimmunity), which can be serious and may cause death. Serious autoimmune problems may include:

  • Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a condition of reduced platelet counts in your blood that can cause severe bleeding that may cause life‑threatening problems. Call your healthcare provider (HCP) right away if you have any of the following symptoms: easy bruising; bleeding from a cut that is hard to stop; coughing up blood; heavier menstrual periods than normal; bleeding from your gums or nose that is new or takes longer than usual to stop; small, scattered spots on your skin that are red, pink, or purple
  • Kidney problems called anti‑glomerular basement membrane disease, which, if not treated, can lead to severe kidney damage, kidney failure that needs dialysis, a kidney transplant, or death. Call your HCP right away if you have any of the following symptoms: swelling of your legs or feet; blood in the urine (red or tea‑colored urine); decrease in urine; fatigue; coughing up blood

It is important patients to have blood and urine tests before you receive, while on treatment and every month for 4 years or longer, after you receive your last LEMTRADA infusion.

***Thoughts From the Editor of this Post.

As with every drug we take there is an element of risk hence that is why we have leaflets inside the packaging of what the drug is and what side effects there are.

As a carer and a concerned mum it is my duty to know if my daughter should have the vaccine, the following telephone numbers had auto response messages saying the lines were busy before the calls were disconnected after my daughter tried phoning today.

029 218 36318

029 218 36319

029 218 36323

029 218 36340

We are located in Cardiff UK so hence these are Cardiff Numbers. If you are outside Wales you should look up your local health board in your region.

I advised my daughter to phone 111 and no one could advise her and she was told that someone would phone her back.

Upon further fact checking I personally phoned the secretary of the Professor of Neurology in Cardiff and I explained that my daughter was a patient and the secretary directed me to this site: https://cavuhb.nhs.wales/our-services/ms-multiple-sclerosis/ (The site does not explain anything about my concerns about diminshed immune response) I also recited screenshot no 2 with my concerns and was told that all MS patients should have the vaccine although she could not explain what diminished immune response meant:

Immunocompromised persons, including individuals receiving immunosuppressant therapy, may have a diminished immune response to the vaccine. No data are available about concomitant use of immunosuppressants.
As with any vaccine, vaccination with COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 may not protect all vaccine recipients.

So obviously not leaving any stone unturned and wanting to know what “diminished immune response” meant I found the following information:

Diminished Immune Response Meaning:

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0008874919302989

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/primary-immunodeficiency/symptoms-causes/syc-20376905

Reading in between the lines as I am no expert and I stand corrected if I am wrong, from what I understand my daugher should she decide on having the vaccine today will have her immune system diminished so there is no way of her fighting the virus. Further more and I quote: “No data is available about concomitant use of immunosuppressants – may not protect all vaccine recipients“.

This tells me that it has no been tested on immune suppressant drugs or patients who have had immune suppressants, hence this is open for debate.

Covid 19 Update Wales

CARDIFF, UNITED KINGDOM – SEPTEMBER 18: The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, speaks during a press conference held to give an update on the coronavirus lockdown restrictions in Wales at the Welsh Government building at Cathays Park in Cardiff, United Kingdom. (Photo by Matthew Horwood/Getty Images)

Listen to Wales First Minister ‘Mark Drakeford’ how he talks about what is happening in Wales and how people can meet only 6 people from their extended family.

He also talks about not being able to liaise with the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Does Boris not have a phone or email?

There is so many things I could talk about in this speech such as if people are only supposed to meet up to 6 people from their extended family, does that mean people cannot meet strangers?

Furthermore what about the schools, colleges and universities. Why are colleges not abiding by the 2 metre rule inside of class, having 24 or more people in a classroom?

What about the data breach, first I have heard of it yet ‘Mark Drakeford’ said it has been addressed and people have had an apology. I am reading the news everyday regarding updates how come I never heard of a data breach until it was mentioned in the speech yesterday. https://www.digitalhealth.net/2020/09/public-health-wales-data-breach-covid-19/

Wales First Minister Mark Drakesford Press Conference 18/09/20

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-wales-54203260

People in general are being complacent about the virus and young people in particular are meeting up at house parties and mixing with friends. Young people are oblivious to how serious this virus is and are going on dates and hanging out with other people outside of their housholds and family networks, why are the Governements so naive?

Its is human nature to socialise. Not everyone can live without interaction from other people.

It needs to be drummed into young people with adverts on all social media platforms the implications of not abiding by the regulations set out by our Governments. People need to be made examples of that do not abide by the rules.

Shock tactics need to be made in order for people to take this virus more seriously.

Things that need to be addressed is:

  1. Addressing people crossing borders to counties.
  2. Schools, Colleges and Univestities with more than 6 people in a classroom.
  3. Protecting Vulnerable People and (Vulnerable Students Especially) to have online lessons indefinately until the virus is under control.
  4. Educating Young People about the implications of not social distancing (Shock Tactics).
  5. If the rule of only 6 people apply, then how can you go to work when there are more than 6 people in a workforce?

I do not get paid to make suggestions and half the time it falls on deaf ears considering the amount of emails I have written to VIP regarding ‘vulnerable students’. It is very disheartening when your own local MP totally ignores you (Jo Stevens).

Furthermore the regulations are giving mixed signals in which a lot of people will have the attitude “que sera sera, what ever will be will be”.

I personally have not ventured outside since the first National UK Lockdown other to meet and greet delivery drivers. I am more concerned about my own daughters well being rather than my own health and because of my own disabilities I do not socialise anyway and the only person I am contact with is my daughter.

Something that ‘Mark Drakesford’ said about ‘Boris Johnson’ that ‘Boris’ was addressing the problem nationally which ‘Mark’ interpreted as England. Because the UK is split into Wales, Scotland, Engalnd and NI each member state should follow the leader, you would think? So either Boris speaks for all of the UK or speaks for England but he need to make that clear so that all member states can follow suit.

Lemtrada (alemtuzumab) Sanofi Genzyme Deaths

A pharmaceutical company in the USA is selling a drug that costs $158,000 per treatment per person and was approved by the FDA although it states on the FDA website the drug can cause fatalities. (FDA PDF Below). It has been used in the UK since 2016.

Lemtrada (alemtuzumab) Sanofi Genzyme

Lemtrada Targets MS-related Cells

Lemtrada, which is also known as alemtuzumab, was originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, under the brand name Campath, to treat B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The drug is a humanized monoclonal antibody that seeks out and destroys specific immune cells that carry a protein called CD52. Many of these cells are believed to be the white blood cells that attack the central nervous system in people with MS.  When those cells are destroyed, the body manufactures new white blood cells that have different properties, i.e., beneficial helper cells rather than the destructive cells that are programmed to attack myelin. Thus, the similarity to stem cell replacement therapy. That therapy uses chemotherapy to destroy most of the body’s immune system cells. Then, fresh stem cells are infused into the body which, over time, create new white blood cells. Unlike other disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), which require injections every few days or monthly infusions, patients receiving Lemtrada are treated once a year, for two years.  The first year the drug is infused daily for five days in a row, on an outpatient basis. Each infusion takes about four hours and the patient is watched for another two hours afterward.  A year later that process is repeated, but for only three days.  And that’s it.

Neurologist Power of Persuasion.

A new database reveals that individual medics are receiving tens of thousands of pounds in consultancy fees from the pharmaceutical industry while recommending products to patients.

Some NHS officials involved in assessing which drugs should be prescribed to patients, such as the neurologist have been earning up to £20,000 per patient from directly marketing their products to the health service. However, tens of millions of pounds worth of payments have been paid to doctors and officials and were not individually declared because the recipients refused to be named (I wonder why?). This proves what I originally suspected that even though the Neurologist mentioned some risks he said in his time of prescribing the drug he never heard of any fatalities. In other words money talks…..

Cost of Treatment For the NHS.
FDA-PDF

However earlier this year the Europen Medicine Agency restricted the use of the drug to “new patients” in the UK and stated that the drug can cause serious life-threatening illnesses and the drug is under investigation in which all investigations will be completed by October of this year. However, what the European Medicine Agency failed to say is that there have been numerous fatalities.

Patients already on the treatment are asked to continue with the treatment and if they have any concerns they need to speak with their doctor.

Now here is the scenario the NHS has bought this drug and they would obviously want their money back if the drug is deemed to be unsafe, but that is never going to happen as the government would be out of pocket. According to the (EMA) European Medicine Agency patients who are benefiting from the drug can use it. In other words “we will see what happens”….

Am I missing something here if a drug is unsafe to use do not allow patients to continue using it. From citations from https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/news-posts/2019/08/26/link-between-lemtrada-and-mortality-more-common-than-previously-reported-study-finds/ Nine fatality cases were deemed probably caused by Lemtrada, with six of these patients dying within one month after receiving just one treatment infusion, https://bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13104-019-4507-6 In my opinion one fatality is one too many…….

So here is the other scenario I know about this drug as my 18-year-old daughter was about to start her second treatment this year in August, precisely one year after her first treatment.

I was told by the ‘European Medicine Agency’ if they suspect the drug is unsafe to restrict it to all patients but I can see the red tape and they have come back to me saying that I should talk to my daughter’s doctor. I explained if a manufacturer of a car, for example, had a fault, the cars would be recalled and the manufacturer would not risk a lawsuit, but the ‘EMA and the Drug Company Sanofi & the NHS’ think they can go unchallenged if something was to go wrong. EMA responded that all drugs including Ibuprofen and Asprin have an element of risk. But none actually state anything about fatalities. I was told by the EMA if there was a drug that could prolong your life for another ten years if I had cancer, knowing after the ten years I may get another form of cancer would I take it? Obviously, I am not speaking for everyone but I would look for alternative medicine and look into stem cell technology, I would not take something that was dangerous and could cause fatalities.

I wrote to the FDA and they did not reply but the pharmaceutical company did and so did the ‘EMA’. I said to both organizations you cannot use people like ‘lab rats’ without their knowledge and they both did not comment on this and said if I had any concerns I should speak with the consultant/neurologist, so I hit a brick wall with my questions.

The hospital also has not said to my daughter the drug has been restricted. When I challenged the sister on duty at the time of my daughter second infusion, the sister said the drug had been restricted because it was too expensive for the NHS (she blatantly lied to me), I then asked a nurse and she said she did not know it was restricted.

So this tells me the staff in the hospitals have been pre-warned that if anyone was to ask is to just act dumb, after all they would not want a moral panic. (A moral panic meaning – A moral panic is a feeling of fear spread among many people that some evil threatens the well-being of society).

The drug can cause, thyroid, liver, kidney disease, cancer or death.

Moving on my daughter for the next five years religiously has to have her blood and urine tested each month. What is the NHS going to do if she contracts another illness because of the drug…….no doubt put a plaster on it and come up with some lame excuse? She is also assigned a Nurse from the MS Team and any concerns she has to ring the helpline.

So last Friday my daughter phones the MS team 11/10/19 as she knows for a fact her immune system has been shut down from the drug to ask if she is ok to be amongst people who may have scarlet fever. She happens to be in college studying her ‘Health & Social Course’ and one of her classmates has ‘Scarlet Fever.

When she was connected to an operator she was told they are not qualified to give advice and that she has to phone another number, which again she ended up out of frustration after the 4th attempt to contact the Neurologist’s Secretary who told her to go back and phone the MS Team. So we were four days into my daughter phoning for advice and no one from the MS Team, my daughter phoned Friday 11th October 2019 and no one has bothered to phone her back.

My daughter then said she experienced a sharp shooting pain across her chest and down her left arm over the weekend and thought she was relapsing. My thoughts were she was having a side effect from the drug and having pains across one’s chest and down one’s left arm is not a good sign especially at the tender age of 18 is very concerning.

I did try and contact the media over this in July of this year and the well know national newspaper journalist said how come it has not been in the news?, well unless someone does a hoo-ha and starts behaving like a raving looney banshee, no one is going to take any notice, so that is why I have started putting the wheels in motion. The media are not going to publish something that can cause a major uproar throughout society. People will lose faith in the healthcare system and people will look for alternative medicines which will then cause adverse effects to the economy.

This is all smoke and mirrors in order to cover up the seriousness of dangerous drugs that are put on the market and not publicized as dangerous and the greedy pharma companies do not care who it affects as long as it makes them money.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK50972/

It’s a vicious circle with the governments funding the pharmaceutical companies that charge the hospitals atrocious amounts of money for drugs that are not safe to use on humans and for every person that is prescribed the drug, the consultant gets paid the pharmaceutical company gets paid and so does the government. It’s a win-win situation at the expense of the people.
