I’d been thinking a lot about this blog lately, my little lonely corner of the internet… It’s been a proper three years since I’ve written here, which at once seems insane and utterly and completely plausible. I had initially anticipated that our Big Move to Boston would lend itself to writing a lot more, documenting […]

By MATTHEW DALY WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is meeting this week with Sept. 11 first responders following withering criticism from comedian Jon Stewart that Congress had failed to ensure that a victims’ compensation fund never runs out of money. A group of first responders will meet Tuesday with McConnell at the Capitol, said John Feal, a ground zero recovery worker and longtime activist on behalf of first responders. The meeting comes as Stewart has blistered McConnell and other congressional leaders for what he calls a lack of urgency to replenish the victims’ fund, which was set up after the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. The $7 billion fund is being depleted and has cut benefit payments by up to 70 percent. A bill pending in Congress would ensure the fund can pay benefits for 70 years. Stewart mocked McConnell on Stephen Colbert’s late-night talk show last week, accusing the GOP leader of slow-walking the legislation and using it as a political pawn to get other things done. The former host of “The Daily Show” also scolded lawmakers who did not show up at a public hearing this month even as “sick and dying” first responders and their families came to Washington to testify in favor of the bill. McConnell said last week that the issue will be addressed and that he does not know why Stewart was “all bent out of shape.” Feal said in an interview Monday that the meeting with McConnell was long planned but that Stewart’s advocacy has raised the profile of first responders still suffering from respiratory ailments and other illnesses related to the attacks. “We are going to challenge the Senate majority leader’s humanity,” Feal said. Feal, who lost part of his left foot in an accident during recovery work at the World Trade Center site, said Stewart “put our 18 years of pain and suffering” in public view at a House hearing June 11. He said first responders hope to share similar stories Tuesday as they meet with McConnell. “Mitch McConnell should feel Jon’s passion as well,” Feal said. A spokesman for McConnell declined to comment, but President Donald Trump said he was “very impressed” by Stewart’s remarks. “I liked what Jon Stewart did,” Trump said in an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Trump said he has a meeting on the subject this week and “we’ll see what happens.” The collapse of the World Trade Center in September 2001 sent a cloud of thick dust billowing over lower Manhattan. Fires burned for weeks. Thousands of construction workers, police officers, firefighters and others spent time working in the soot, often without proper respiratory protection. In the years since, many have seen their health decline, some with respiratory or digestive-system ailments that appeared almost immediately, others with illnesses that developed as they aged, including cancer. More than 40,000 people have applied to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, which covers illnesses potentially related to being at the World Trade Center site, at the Pentagon or in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after the attacks. The fund has awarded more than $5 billion in benefits, but about 21,000 claims remain pending. The Justice Department said in February that the fund is being depleted and that benefit payments are being cut by up to 70 percent. The bill to replenish the fund must pass the House first. Majority Democrats have promised a vote before their August recess.

Roderick Bevan was the great-nephew of NHS founder Nye Bevan (Picture: PA) The great-nephew of NHS founder Nye Bevan died following ‘life-threatening’ mistakes by two trusts treating him for lung cancer. Roderick Bevan died after doctors at both Midlands-based trusts failed to tell him he had a tumour or begin proper treatment. By the time they realised their mistake his condition had become terminal and he could not be saved. Lincolnshire coroner Paul Smith concluded Mr Bevan, of Grantham, died of natural causes contributed to by neglect, adding that he would have been saved had he received radiotherapy. The 66-year-old’s daughter, Paula, said she was sure the Welsh Labour Party MP ‘would be appalled by the events that have unfolded’. An inquest concluded that Mr Bevan died of natural causes contributed to by neglect after two Midlands-based trusts failed to notify him about a lung tumour (Picture: PA) The coroner’s findings noted that the retired caretaker could have survived had he received radiotherapy. Mr Bevan’s inquest at Boston Coroner’s Court back in May heard how the tumour was identified during a PET scan at Boston Pilgrim Hospital in October 2016. Despite further appointments, medical professionals at Pilgrim Hospital as well as the University Hospitals of Leicester Trust, which later took over his care, did not tell Mr Bevan he had lung cancer until January 2018. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] Recording a narrative verdict the coroner said: ‘By that time his condition had deteriorated such that he was no longer a candidate for active treatment. ‘On balance of probabilities, had the results of the PET scan and/or the recommendation of the Multi Disciplinary Team meeting of October 11 2016 been acted upon promptly, the treatment proposed for Mr Bevan would have been successful.’ Ms Paula Bevan said she felt her father was ‘totally let down by the NHS, whose founder was Nye Bevan who, as the name suggests, my dad was related to – it was his great-uncle’. ‘Considering the trusts had already admitted liability beforehand, I would have expected a certain amount of support from the trusts due to the neglect and poor care of my father,’ she added. ‘No one deserves to be let down like this and my dad had such a big heart and even when he was suffering, he sent me a text which I still have, it said “Keep happiness in your heart, everything will be alright”.’ Christine Bowerman, senior associate solicitor at JMP Solicitors who advised Ms Bevan about her father’s case, said the coroner’s findings were ‘the best that we could have hoped for’. She said the lawyer who represented her at the inquest asked the coroner to find both trusts had made ‘gross failings’ on the basis that ‘everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong’. ‘The finding that death was by natural causes contributed to by neglect was the best that we could have hoped for from an inquest and it did reflect that Mr Bevan’s death could certainly have been avoided,’ Ms Bowerman added. Mr Bevan’s daughter Paula said the late health minister ‘would be appalled by the events that have unfolded’ (Picture: PA) Dr Neill Hepburn, medical director at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said: ‘We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Mr Bevan. ‘We accept that there were opportunities for us to communicate more effectively with Mr Bevan and have carried out a full investigation into the circumstances of his death. ‘We have learnt from this and have reviewed our practices and procedures.’ [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] Andrew Furlong, medical director at Leicester’s Hospitals, said: ‘Unfortunately, Mr Bevan died in tragic circumstances; for that we remain incredibly sorry. ‘At the time, we carried out a serious incident review, involving his family, to help us understand exactly what happened and learn lessons. ‘Since our review we have made significant improvements to prevent this happening again. ‘This includes any patient with suspected cancer appearing on a daily list (tracking system) which is visible to key clinicians and managers across the organisation. ‘This means that investigations, treatment plans and care can be put into place and tracked as appropriate. ‘We again offer our deepest sympathies to Mr Bevan’s family and friends and wholeheartedly apologise for their loss and the distress this has caused them.’ [metro-fact-box id=”8027376″ title=”Got a story for Metro.co.uk?” icon=”exclamation” /]
