Shrewsbury and Telford maternity scandal: ‘Grave concern’ as new cases reported


More than 200 babies may have died and many others left with life-changing injuries due to repeated failures at an NHS Trust, a report has found.

Senior midwife Donna Ockenden’s review examined catastrophic failures in maternity care at the Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust (SaTH).

She said there were “grave concern” that new cases continued to be reported outside the period the review covered.
