In the 1960s and 70s, thousands of women were given the oral hormone pregnancy test Primodos. Today, there is more evidence to suggest this drug caused life changing and devastating congenital abnormalities, stillbirths and miscarriages. The Association for Children Damaged by Hormone Pregnancy Tests (ACDHPT) is campaigning to expose the truth about the failures of both past and present Government Regulatory Agencies and the continuing cover up by the drug company Bayer/Schering. We have had to fight to bring this scandal into the open, to ensure our families are recognised as innocent victims of an unnecessary drug and absolved of any guilt at the tragic results. It is now time to place the blame where it belongs, with the Regulators and the Manufacturer, to allow our families to finally shed the guilt they have carried for more than 50 years. It is now time for Justice.

Petitioning Boris Johnson

Protect patients and make our healthcare system safer for our children.

Would you like to make a difference, protect your children, change a culture of denial?  Your signature on our Petition could make this happen: The Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety review (IMMDS), published on 8th July 2020, identified serious failings in our regulatory system, whose primary purpose should be to protect our families.  In the early 1960s, rather than protect patients, the Regulator chose to protect the pharmaceutical giants, failing families and causing life-changing, catastrophic damage by harmful hormone pregnancy tests, including Primodos.  The failure by the Regulator to protect our families continues today. We need your support to implement change, and make sure this never happens again. Please sign our Petition, to Protect our Children, Change a Culture, Make Medicine and Medical Devices safer.  With your support we can do this. The Regulator must be seen to work for patients and with patients.  The culture of Protect and Deny, adopted by the Regulator must stop NOW. There must be openness and transparency within the regulatory system, instead of secrecy and barriers. The Regulator must put patients first by working with them and for them, instead of protecting pharmaceutical companies. The Medicines and Medical Devices Regulator (MHRA) must be overhauled to radically improve the way concerns about medicines and devices are detected and action taken. The MHRA needs to track and document how medicines and devices improve, or fail to improve, patients health and quality of life. We are fighting to ensure the recommendations in the IMMDS Report are implemented without delay to protect all patients from harmful medicines and devices. The Association for Children Damaged by Hormone Pregnancy Tests (ACDHPT) is a registered charity (276658)
