SHORT THREAD: Was just on @BBCNews responding to the comments made by Sunak & backed by Truss saying scientists had too much power, lockdowns were a mistake etc 1. They are rewriting what happened - the situation pre vaccine was very very scary with 150K dying pre wide vax. 1/7

There it is. Former banker Sajid Javid plans to hand control of whole chains of NHS hospitals to private companies that he coyly calls “outside sponsors”. The NHS was never, ever safe in their hands. It’s blatant NHS privatisation. Screenshots below.

Wow! This is awesome on @bbcdebatenight . 1. A mask that PROTECTS ✅ 2. A mask that is REUSABLE ✅ 3. A mask that is known by our leaders but not taken up! ❌ Come on, we can do better than we are now! I believe the masks referred to are by @MedSupDriveUK

Interesting to see how mistakes propagate through the medical literature. Like the "swallowing eight spiders" myth and "Lisa Birgit Holst" followup, it's easy to be lazy and not go back to original sources. Though you'd hope in a systematic review the standards would be higher!

“Women are not small men. One-size-fits-all equipment designed on male body templates ignores the impact of biological features such as facial geometry and breasts” Critical article by @Chakladar_A and @Anna_Ascott_ on @bmj_latest 👏 #GenderEqualHCW

Thank you @mbgiovanardi for changing the archaic definitions/synonyms of 'woman' in the Oxford Dictionary. Now removed demeaning examples: “Ms September will embody the professional yet sexy career woman,” “male fisherfolk who take their catch home for the little woman to gut”

Does the dictionary definition of 'woman' matter to you? Women’s rights activist, Maria Beatrice Giovanardi @mbgiovanardi successfully campaigned to change the @OED definition and now’s she asking Italian publisher @Treccani to do the same

Positives coming out of covid include the fantastic leadership and research by junior doctors. Engaging with senior leadership and encouraging change has been challenging at times, but we won’t stop trying. Shout out to @RhysWenlock for his work on nosocomial infection.

Thanks @LottieOConor for outlining the problem so clearly. PPE protects male staff better than female staff in the NHS

One size PPE definitely does not fit all & places female health staff at risk. @LottieOConor summarises the problem #covidisairborne & we need to protect everyone equally @Anna_Ascott_ @mancunianmedic @trishgreenhalgh @KateBurkeNHS @EveryDoctorUK
