Was there ever an excuse for all-male panels? Or justification? Or valid reason? I think not! Sadly I’ve just spoken at consec confs where I was sole or 1 of 2 women; contd pressure needed!

3. First question = What's the harm? Doctors didnt ask this (and test this) when they were bloodletting. The mania for screening and surveillance IS the new bloodletting (of the 'bad' things that might be inside)

Tackling domestic abuse is hard. The issue is MASSIVE. Yet we must not let that deter us.

2. Parallels with FitBits & other wearable gizmos starting cascade of interventions (eg for symptomless AF) - just as there are differences between pulse, ECG & electrical mapping. We could say 'you are well if you feel well', others 'lets find out' - despite the dangers

1. We agree on that🙂, but often muddled conversations about purpose (eg fetal wellbeing - if baby moves its alive?) of 'watchful monitoring', surveillance, screening, diagnosis. just like fitbits... see 2.

Yes the guidance is saying that FBS can be used as 'diagnostic test' after the screening of CTG. More importantly, for low risk women see the advice about place of birth impact on CSR, what women should be told about CTG, when it should be offered or discussed (not as 'routine')

Thanks Andy, but what is the evidence it is the best way? Maybe compared to nothing, but compared to intermittent auscultation?

Please clarify so people don't misunderstand RCPsych's empathic concerns that violence & abuse of power are determinants of mental illness & distress 😟

Why are "healthcare professionals considered the weakest link of CTG technology", rather than the technology itself? Because when gizmos dont work there has to be someone to blame?

Is anyone paying attention to the fact that noise and distortion means we cant trust those who used national population statistics to justify screening. Stop prioritising the well over the sick!
