    The parents of a baby who nearly died after a series of failings during his birth said they were "heartbroken" mistakes continued to be made East Kent Hospitals told Harry Halligan's parents they would learn lessons from his delivery in 2012. But similar failings recently came to light after the death of Harry Richford in 2017 and the trust is now being probed over up to 15 baby deaths. The trust said it made "many changes to the maternity service" after 2012. Parents Dan and Alison Halligan, from New Romney, said watching news coverage of an inquest into Harry Richford's death

    The audit consists of 3 elements: 1. A survey of the organisation of maternity care in England, Scotland and Wales will provide an up-to-date overview of maternity care provision, women’s access to recommended services and options available to them. 2. A continuous prospective clinical audit of a number of key interventions and outcomes to identify unexpected variation between service providers or regions. 3. A flexible programme of periodic audits on specific topics (‘sprint audits’) within a focused time frame.

    Midwifery during COVID-19: A personal account

    Birth choices Our pregnant women are still being offered good choices in their birth experience such as homebirth and water birth, so long as they are well. I did two lovely home births this week. We are definitely seeing a rise in people transferring to our homebirth service. I do think there is a concern nationally about high risk women choosing to homebirth unassisted, in areas where maternity services have suspended homebirth as an option. Because women in my area still have the option of a homebirth, it’s not something we’re experiencing. Birthing partners and limited visits

    At least seven preventable baby deaths may have occurred at one of the largest groups of hospitals in England since 2016, a BBC investigation has found. Significant concerns have been raised about maternity services at the trust. East Kent NHS Foundation Trust has apologised, saying it has "not always provided the right standard of care". The trust has struggled to improve maternity care for years, despite repeatedly being made aware of the problems. In 2015, the medical director asked experts from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to review maternity ca

    The reporting reveals a legal and medical system that sometimes struggles to differentiate accidental injuries from abuse, particularly in cases involving children too young to describe what happened to them. Physicians intent on protecting the most vulnerable in some instances have overstated the reliability of their findings, using terms such as “100 percent” and “certain” to describe conclusions that usually cannot be proven with absolute confidence. Child welfare workers, overworked and untrained in complex medical issues, are not always sure how to proceed when the primary evidence agains

    Key learning points Fewer than 8% of trusts provided all training elements of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle – a nationally recommended tool to reduce stillbirth. There are examples of excellence in maternity training; however, there is still little/no standardisation in the way maternity training is prioritised, provided, funded, assessed or attended across the UK. The provision of maternity training has increased across the UK since the last report in 2016, particularly in areas that have been emphasised in recent reports,such as human factors training. Other importan

    A baby with a serious heart condition has died after she received an infection from mould in a Seattle hospital's operating room, her mother says. Elizabeth Hutt was born with a heart condition that she battled for the entirety of her six-month-long life. The young child underwent three open heart surgeries, and after the third one is when it's believed she contracted an Aspergillus mould infection in the hospital's operating room. The mould in the hospital's operating rooms was first detected in November, around the same time as the child's third surgery. It was later determ

    A BBC News investigation has uncovered more preventable baby deaths at an NHS trust that has already been criticised for its maternity services. Four families said their babies would have survived had East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust provided better care. The NHS's Healthcare Safety Branch is investigating 25 maternity cases at the hospitals in Margate and Ashford. The trust has apologised for the care provided in two of the cases and said they were investigating a third. It has denied any wrongdoing in the fourth case. The government is due to receive the Healthcare Safety Branch'

    Parents of babies who died at a hospital trust at the centre of a maternity inquiry say a police investigation has come "too late". West Mercia Police said it was looking at whether there was "evidence to support a criminal case" at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital Trust. An independent review, contacted by more than 1,000 families, said it was working with police to identify relevant cases. "It's bittersweet," one mother said. "It's come too late for my daughter, she should still be here," said Tasha Turner, whose baby, Esmai, died four days after she was born at Royal Shre

    England's care watchdog has carried out a no-notice inspection of an NHS trust at the centre of concerns over the possible preventable deaths of babies. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is investigating East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust but has not yet decided whether to prosecute. It comes as the trust is likely to be heavily criticised at an inquest into the death of baby Harry Richford. On Thursday, the BBC revealed significant concerns have been raised about maternity services at the trust, and a series of preventable baby deaths may have occurred there. On Wednesday and Thursday th

    Sick newborns in some areas of the UK are dying at twice the rate of seriously ill babies in other areas, a new report has revealed. The findings raise serious questions about the quality of care in some neonatal units, with experts warning action needs to be taken to tackle the “striking variation”. Across the country neonatal units are also short of at least 600 nurses with four in five failing to meet required safe staffing levels for specialist nurses. The regions with the highest mortality rate at 10 per cent were Staffordshire, Shropshire and the Black Country, where 107 b
