Two more NHS maternity units have been downgraded by the care watchdog amid safety concerns.
The services at Colchester Hospital and Ipswich Hospital were downgraded from good, to 'requires improvement', finding staff shortages at both hospitals.
Moreover, it was also found handovers were not sufficient meaning staff were not sharing the proper information about the women and babies.
Among the concerns and issues raised, there were problems with team-working, properly recording patient information, and inefficient information systems.
