East Kent NHS Trust: Lessons not learned at maternity trust, mum says

Lessons still have not been learned at a Kent hospital trust which was criticised in a damning report, a mother has said.

Dr Bill Kirkup's review found at least 45 babies might have survived with better care at East Kent NHS hospitals.

Victoria, whose six-year-old daughter needs 24-hour support, said: "I've had no contact from anyone from the trust."

Her case was one of 202 that were examined by Dr Kirkup in his report, which was published exactly a year ago.

Victoria, whose daughter is living with the consequences of failings in her care during her birth, said: "Our children have become unwell because of what has happened to them.

"I don't feel lessons have been learned whatsoever.

"Treatment hadn't been made available as easily as it should have done for children that are still living this experience every day."
