Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Controlled by the Industry

New video:

Description in case Google removes his videos again:

We feel compelled to conclude that the MHRA has indeed become an enabler for the pharmaceutical industry, with patient safety no longer being its primary concern.

Medicines regulator failed to flag Covid vaccine side effects,

and must be urgently investigated.

All-party parliamentary group, (APPG) on Pandemic Response and Recovery,

believe MHRA were aware of heart and clotting issues,

in February 2021,

but did not highlight the problems for several months

We write regarding serious concerns about the approach of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA),

to patient safety and also problems in a system that,

far from protecting patients,

continues to put them at serious risk.

Primodos, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh

We also believe that the MHRA is at the heart of these far wider endemic failings,

and that those cited in this letter merely represent the tip of a sizeable iceberg of failure.
The Yellow Card Scheme

The Yellow Card Scheme … is failing patients.

Hospital admissions are caused or complicated by ADRs (16.5%),

while analysis of in patient stays has shown that 15% of patients experience one or more ADRs, with half being either definitely or possibly avoidable.

Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review Review, report First Do No Harm:

We heard about a system that cannot be relied upon to identify promptly significant adverse outcomes arising from a medication or device,

it is clear that there is gross under-reporting,

and our complaints systems are both too complex and too diffuse to allow early signal detection.

Under-reporting hinders the ability to detect signals and assign causation.

The cost to patient safety of such an unreliable system can be measured in the needless fatalities,

the considerable burden on the quality of life for survivors,

and a £2.2 billion strain on NHS England alone.

Only one in 12 patients are aware that they can report a suspected ADR.

A 2006 systemic review

pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16689555/

The rate of under-reporting of adverse events was, on average, 94% and possibly as high as 98%,

meaning possibly only two in every 100 ADRs were reported to the MHRA.

For example, a survey of UK pharmacists suggested they lack interest in, and do not promote, direct patient reporting.

Only 19% of the respondents displayed a poster promoting the Yellow Card Scheme in their pharmacy.

2023, analysis of anticoagulants

pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37269441/

Reporting of gastrointestinal bleeds

North West of England Hospital Trust recorded 12,013 bleed-related emergency admissions.

Of these, 1,058 were taking DOAC anticoagulants.

Only six DOAC Yellow Card reports (0.56% of the possible) were made by the Trust during the period.

Conflicts of Interest and Transparency

From FDA to MHRA: are drug regulators for hire?

www.bmj.com/content/377/bmj.o1538

The regulator-industry revolving door

Proportion of covid-19 vaccine committee members that declared financial COIs

UK, HMRA, 32%

Australia, TGA, 50%

March 2022, Dame June Raine, Chief Executive of the MHRA

agency’s transition from “the watchdog to the enabler”

does little to quell suspicions of conflicts and the implications for patient safety and cannot be overlooked.

MHRA’s responses to Freedom of Information (FOI) requests.

Between 2008 and 2017,

only 41% of requests were successful.

Since 2019, the number of requests has seen a substantial increase from 609 to 1,609 in 2021,

likely due to concerns about the regulation of Covid-19 vaccinations,

with 76% of these requests answered outside the 20 working days statutory response time.

Often exemptions were applied or vague or evasive responses were received.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

from regulatory approval to post marketing pharmacovigilance the MHRA has a history of failing patients

The MHRA does not attempt to assess or compare the safety of different vaccines, due to inadequate reporting in the system which prevents any analysis:

MHRA “does not hold a process for the investigation and follow up of individual Yellow Card reports”

MHRA only followed up some 54% of deaths reported in yellow cards as possibly linked to exposure to one of the Covid-19 vaccines.

What conclusions are we to draw about the seeming unwillingness of a regulator, largely funded by those it regulates, to disclose data to the same public it professes to protect?

Covering Up Dead People or Covering Up for Pandemic Profiteers

I wrote about it last month.

Early heart disease deaths rise to 14-year high

www.bhf.org.uk/what-we-do/news-from-the-bhf/news-a…

Over 100,000 excess deaths involving cardiovascular conditions in England since February 2020

Heart and circulatory diseases cause around a quarter of all deaths in England – over 140,000 deaths each year or one death every four minutes.

In 2022

Over 39,000 people in England died prematurely of cardiovascular conditions,

heart attacks, coronary heart disease and stroke,

an average of 750 people each week.

It is the highest annual total since 2008.

Enshittification of Everything, Even Your Internet and Energy Provider

I want to combine two issues in this post, based on two very recent anecdotes.

I’ve just checked bank accounts (it’s taking a long time because the login processes have become super-cumbersome), having already phoned BT several times, and the issue remained unsolved for several months. It was starting to seem like it’s intentional, a pattern, not some accident. It’s hard to imagine how you get it wrong three times in a row, but then again all services getting worse seems like the “new normal” and “enshittification” was coined to describe this phenomenon.

The other day I told the energy supplier to quit spamming me about spymeters (they nagged me about it over 100 times over the years) and after they said they’d stop they merely started doing it every single day, i.e. it got even worse. The spam comes through the box (physical), inbox, and sometimes even phonecalls.

We need to demand change, not learn to accept this degradation of services.

2024 Looks Like Another Year of 50,000+ Excess Deaths Across the UK

Like last year

IN the morning (around 10AM) ONS published these latest figures of public interest, this time with Week 6 mortalities in England and Wales (not Scotland). It’s about 1,000 higher than it was before the pandemic (for this one week alone, only in England and Wales).

mortalities in England and Wales 2024 week 6

In Week 6 of 2019 it was about 11.5k deaths compared to 12.5k this year and in 5 years prior to and including 2019 we also see total mortality at about 11.5k.

mortalities in England and Wales 2019 week 6

WHO says the pandemic is behind us, but if 100,000+ Brits needlessly die (excess deaths) in 2023 and 2024, then quit listening to WHO, which tries to pat itself on the should for a job jab well done.

E.ON Next is Spamming All Clients With Spy Meter Nags Even Years After Promising to Stop This

How many years will those lies and SPAM carry on for? There’s no “opt out”.

SEVERAL years ago I wrote about the spamming I had been receiving about spy meters. I must have been nagged about it about 100 times already. It’s very time consuming at this rate and frequency. They even phone us sometimes to nag us about it.

By their own admission, more than a third of their clients do not want spy meters. So we’re not some tiny minority or a ‘fringe’.

Anyway, in recent days they kept spamming me some more and even a day after they told me it would stop they carried on as usual. See below.

I already told you, REPEATEDLY, to stop spamming me about this.

You agreed but didn’t keep the promise.

You’re still doing this.

Please STOP.

Nonsense. The SPAM continues just less than 24 hours later.
I will relay to you the SPAM.

At this stage I might just terminate the contract with you and report the SPAM, or unsolicited mail.

This dataset presents the latest data on All-cause death statistics

Excess mortality and COVID-19 deaths, by week, for all OECD countries for which data are available.

The expected number of deaths is based on the average number of deaths for the same week, (2015-19)

This baseline could be considered a lower estimate of the expected number of deaths since both population growth and an ageing population would be expected to push up the number of deaths observed each year.

For example, New Zealand saw its population grow by around 9% since 2015, with the number of people aged 65 and over increasing by 18%.

I’m an Australian embalmer and we are seeing the same clots

i have a friend who is a funeral director here in new zealand i asked him he said he was finding the same thing and i live in a small town .

I know a guy who’s wife is an embalmer. She said ever since the you know what she has never seen so many cases of clotted arteries in her life.

My Daughter passed away 29 years old. A Blood Clot they called it a Thrombotic Pulmonary embolism. The coroner told me that she was presenting these white type Clots. She was a New Mother and I miss Her dearly. I get upset thinking that when she had her jab they double dosed her. The Public Health Org. was supposed to follow up with Her but they didnt.

As a physician practicing in the USA, I’m extremely concerned about the rising excess deaths and its correlations to 2021 . Practitioner’s need to be brave and continue to speak out with compassion to educate our patients. I believe the dam is ready to break soon.

Johns past few episodes alone should be a wake-up call for an independent review body. There should be at the very least a database showing if the deceased were vaccinated or not and if so what type(s) of vaccine were administered. Thanks for highlighting these findings John.

I know of a 64 year old man, perfectly healthy, fully jabbed who died of a massive heart attack 2 months ago. The hospital ordered no autopsy! His wife has employed a Solicitor to insist an autopsy is done. Funny, it’s like the hospital has something to hide…can’t think why?
