Inquiry head to meet failing maternity bosses

Donna Ockenden, who is leading an independent review examining how dozens of babies died or were injured at the Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) trust, is due to meet with chief executive of NUH, Anthony May, and other members of the NUH executive team.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, she said: "The commitment I want to give to the women and families of Nottingham is that real learning, real improvement in maternity safety will happen throughout the life of this review.

"It won't be a case of waiting until the end and then presenting the trust with a huge amount of learning that they then have to start putting in place.

"Today's meeting with the trust is at executive level. Along with colleagues from NHS England, I'll be meeting with the chief executive and some of his colleagues to talk about how we will ensure that learning reaches the trust on a regular basis and in a timely way so families can be assured that the maternity improvement plan is including learning from our review."
