The mosaic of the COVID-19 public wellness preparedness and response within the U. K. and worldwide had many shortcomings. This certainly did not harness the consensus of medical assistance that was portrayed by the popular media.
Doctors for Patients U. K. (DFPUK) premiered in September 2022 and it has become a fast-growing group of U. K. doctors who are dedicated to practising ethical, evidence-based and patient-centred medicine.
DFPUK was paid for out of three years of boosting consternation over the manner in which the core principles of medical ethics have been systematically disassembled by our public health bodies. Doctors are held in high regard mainly because we are entrusted to give exclusive primacy to the best interests of our own patients. We are expected to end up being guided by our pledge to ‘ first perform no harm’; an uncompromising respect for individual physical autonomy; obligation to obtain complete and informed consent for all those medical interventions; and to be free of influence from any kind of entity external to the doctor-patient relationship. Sadly, all this has been unceremoniously discarded throughout the era of COVID-19.
DFPUK is committed to highlighting the particular failures in medical exercise that led to support pertaining to travesties including public lockdowns, ‘ health passport’ initiatives and cancelling of healthful scientific discussion and discussion within a free and democratic society. The most vociferous and buoyant offspring of our COVID-19 public health response continues to be the imposition of a book, untested and poorly understood mRNA technology as a ‘ viable, safe and effective vaccine’.
Many physicians in the U. K. plus internationally have become increasingly concerned about the lack of effectiveness and scary safety profile of COVID-19 vaccines. Given these unquestionable signals, the continued rollout of these products to the community, including pregnant women and kids, is not only irresponsible but reprehensible. This is not why enthusiastically compassionate and bright, young aspiring doctors leap into a long term calling to be at the service of humanity. The determination of doctors to endure aside and allow the enshrined principles of medical ethics to be trampled by outsiders who have no moral power to do so has not gone unnoticed by the general public. Never before offers there been such distrust and scepticism directed against doctors and the medical fraternity as a whole.
A handful of doctors have tried to speak out individually, to fulfil their duty as outlined by the General Medical Council just for doctors to take prompt motion when they see that patient security is being compromised. Many have received a devastating backlash through colleagues, senior managers as well as the mainstream media.
DFPUK is a group of Oughout. K. doctors spanning the breadth of medical expertise. Members have submitted multiple Yellow Card reports of adverse events to the MHRA and have signed letters towards the JCVI, MHRA, the RCOG, the Prime Minister and others to convey their concerns, but have experienced little or no response or action taken.
All of us therefore decided to compile a video to share our individual points of views, clinical experiences and severe ethical concerns, as an immediate call to action to authorities to investigate fully the mRNA Covid vaccines. We hope to induce critical thinking amongst co-workers, galvanise health professionals to express their views and build grassroots initiatives to re-establish the particular core principles of healthcare ethics. It has been notable that will in compiling the movies, many members have been unable to put in a personal contribution despite sharing the concerns from the whole group. Some are usually facing complaints to their employers or the regulators. Other people have faced opprobrium using their family or colleagues. The process has highlighted for us the particular extraordinary levels of politicisation plus censorship.
