Government postpones controversial health data grab
UNISON has welcomed the government’s decision to postpone its planned data grab of all medical histories held by English GPs. The controversial plan had already been delayed from July to September, after widespread criticism from GPs, civil society organisations, trade unions and others. Then, in July, came the backdown, and the decision to “pause” the collection of data in order to provide more time to engage with GPs, patients, health charities and others. In a letter to GPs, Jo Churchill, the under-secretary of state for health and social care, wrote: “While we are continuing to work on the ...

About one in seven women who give birth in the U.S. experience postpartum depression—a condition that can leave them exhausted, make it difficult for them to bond with their babies, and even generate thoughts of suicide.
