Nottingham maternity failings: Hundreds of families contact review team

PUBLISHED

More than 350 families have already contacted a review team which is examining failings at maternity units in two Nottingham hospitals.

The review was opened on 1 September by Donna Ockenden, who previously led an inquiry into the maternity scandal at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust.

She will examine how dozens of babies died or were injured in Nottingham.

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust has apologised for "unimaginable distress" caused by its failings.

More affected families, as well as staff with concerns, have been asked to come forward.

Ms Ockenden said: "We are really pleased with the large numbers of families and staff that have already come forward in the first week of the review, and we actively encourage others to do the same."
