Description

MPs are calling for major changes into care for sickle cell patients after an inquiry found "serious care failings".

On the Sky News Daily podcast, we revisit an episode from earlier this year where Shingi Mararike talks to the parents of 21-year-old Evan Smith - who died in hospital in 2019 - plus Elizabeth Anionwu, Britain’s first specialist sickle cell nurse.
