Tozers Solicitors Back National Screening Campaign For Group B Strep
GBS specialist solicitor Stuart Bramley writes –
“Everyone concerned about childbirth and risks to babies should be aware of this campaign. The ‘unnecessary’ risk from antibiotics is something many experts believe to be over-stated and there have been few side-effects reported in all the countries including the USA where Group B Strep screening is universally carried out. By contrast screening, and where necessary action, avoids precisely the danger flagged up by 5 Live Investigates – the children affected each year by undiagnosed and untreated GBS, many of whom die and many of whom suffer meningitis and/or septicaemia leading to brain injury. I have fought for compensation for these children for years and firmly believe that this heartache would be reduced by automatic screening. I urge readers to watch the footage and lend their support to the campaign for a national screening programme in the UK”.
