Baby deaths inquiry urges immediate nationwide action to improve maternity care

An initial review investigating baby deaths at an NHS trust has identified seven 'immediate and essential actions' needed to improve maternity services in England. The inquiry into deaths and allegations of poor care at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) was set up in 2017 and is now examining the cases of 1,862 families, with the majority of incidents occurring between 2000 and 2019. Responding to the report, patient safety and mental health minister Nadine Dorries said she expects SaTH to act on the recommendations immediately following 'shocking' failings at the trust.
