Doctors for Patients UK (DfPUK) was established in September 2022 and has become a fast-growing group of UK doctors dedicated to practising evidence-based, ethical and patient-centred medicine. Our group is borne out of increasing concerns that core principles of medical ethics are being disregarded, such as the oath to “First do no harm”, the respect for individual bodily autonomy and the need to obtain fully informed consent for all medical interventions.
Many doctors in the UK, and internationally, have become increasingly concerned about the safety profile of Covid-19 vaccines and the continued rollout of these products to the public, including children and pregnant women. Several doctors in DfPUK have submitted multiple Yellow Card reports of adverse events following their covid vaccinations to the MHRA. Not only this, but we have also signed letters to the JCVI, MHRA, RCOG, Prime Minister and others to express their concerns but have received little to no response or action taken.
Our members created this video as they felt the need to voice their perspectives, clinical experiences and serious ethical concerns. This was done in hope that our message is received and acknowledged by the relevant authorities with prompt and appropriate action taken.
This fulfils our duty, as outlined by the General Medical Council, for doctors to take prompt action when we, as clinicians, see that patient safety is being compromised.
