    Commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in February 2020, the Independent Investigation into East Kent Maternity services published its report last month highlighting patient safety failings in maternity and neonatal care services from 2009–2020 at two hospitals: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital at Margate and the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford. This is another devastating report detailing cases of serious avoidable harm and preventable deaths in the NHS, stating that it found that: “... those responsible for the services too often provided clinic

    The NHS could be facing its largest maternity scandal to date as the review into services in Nottingham is now expected to exceed 1,500 cases, The Independent has learned. The probe began in 2021 after this newspaper revealed dozens of babies had died or been left with serious injuries or brain damage as a result of care at NUH, which runs Nottingham’s City Hospital and Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC). But the scope of the investigation has more than doubled, with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust sending more than 1,000 letters to families to contact the independent inquiry, af

    A report published by the Harmed Patients Alliance, “Signpost to Nowhere?” the case for funded independent advocacy, advice and information for patients and families following patient safety incidents” shines a bright light on this neglected issue and offers a way forward. The report points out the irony of the NHS focus on “just” culture when it is prepared to abandon the people it has harmed in this way. It suggests that the NHS owes a “moral duty of care ” to attend to the needs it creates for people affected by avoidable harm in the NHS to support their wellbeing, trust in the NHS and

    Dear all I write this letter to raise people’s awareness of an imminent advert for a non-executive role at the new independent body, Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB), aiming to address harm in healthcare. I urge people to think about and share this new role at HSSIB following my own very personal experience and experience from learning from others in trying to improve health service systems following patient harm events. For the last 12 years I have played a role supporting four people, as a carer and advocate for frail older relatives and close friends, includ

    Addressing these safety challenges must be a key priority for the new Prime Minister and Health Secretary. This report makes five recommendations, highlighting the vital role that the intelligent collection and monitoring of patient safety data, and the rapid response to any concerns they raise, can play in the continuous improvement of patient safety. Underpinning all of these recommendations is the principle that, first and foremost, patient safety needs to be seen and truly understood from the patient’s perspective. Recommendations: The breadth of patient safety data needs to in

    Greg Price died of complications after testicular cancer surgery, but a review of his case found missed faxes, follow-ups and botched data-sharing ultimately cost the vibrant 31-year-old Alberta man his life. All the missteps in his case meant it took 407 days from his first complaint for Price — an engineer, pilot, and athlete — to be diagnosed with cancer. He died three months after his doctor said he should see a specialist, and while he was being passed between multiple doctors, his health data often was not. Now, his sister, Teri Price, says too little has changed in medical inf

    Care homes and hospitals will be forced to allow visitors under plans being drawn up by the government. Helen Whately, the care minister, said shutting out relatives showed a lack of humanity. Covid-19 rules mean some of the country’s most vulnerable people still cannot have loved ones at their bedside. Whately, who has told of her personal grief and frustration at being barred from visiting her critically ill mother, is now developing laws to give residents and patients a right to receive visitors. Although official visiting restrictions were dropped in the spring in England, t

    A senior doctor is to be removed from the medical register after she was found to have attempted to cover-up the circumstances of a young girl's death. Paediatrics consultant Dr Heather Steen was found to be unfit to practise after an investigation into the death of nine-year-old Claire Roberts in 1996. A medical tribunal examining the doctor's case ruled that the majority of allegations against her were true. Claire's mother said it was "just the start of getting full justice". "I am angry at Dr Steen for putting us through 26 years of mental torment," said Jennifer Robert

    To begin the interview, we discussed the events leading up to Keith joining HSIB as its first Chief Investigator. He spoke about his background as a pilot and then joining the Air Accidents Investigation Branch, first as an investigator before later becoming its Chief Investigator. There has been much written about the safety lessons that healthcare can learn from the aviation industry. Keith reflected on how his investigation roles in aviation helped to develop his understanding of the importance of creating a safety culture and the role of investigations as part of this. Subsequently he

    Two out of five maternity units in England are providing substandard care to mothers and babies, the NHS watchdog has warned. “The quality of maternity care is not good enough,” the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said in its annual assessment of how health and social care services are performing. It published new figures showing it rated 39% of maternity units it inspected in the year to 31 July to “require improvement” or be “inadequate” – the highest proportion on record. Ian Trenholm, the CQC’s chief executive, said maternity services were deteriorating, substandard care was u

    More than 200 families in south-east England will learn today the results of a major inquiry into the maternity care they received from a hospital trust. The investigation into East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust follows dogged campaigning by one determined bereaved grandfather. Derek Richford's grandson Harry died at East Kent Hospitals after his life support system was withdrawn. Sixty one-year-old Derek had never campaigned for anything in his life. His initial approach was to wait for East Kent Hospitals Trust to investigate the death, as it had promised. However, one nagging issu

    The grandfather of a baby who died at a hospital that was fined over failings in the delivery has spoken of his five-year fight for justice. Derek Richford was speaking as an independent report into baby deaths at the East Kent Hospitals Trust will be released this week. He said he "came up against a brick wall" while searching for answers over the death of grandson Harry Richford. An inquest into Harry's death at Margate's Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in 2017 found it was wholly avoidable and contributed to by neglect. Coroner Christopher Sutton-Mattocks said

    The chief executive of an NHS trust at the centre of a maternity scandal where there were at least seven preventable baby deaths has warned staff to prepare for a "harrowing report" into what happened. In an email seen by Sky News, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Tracey Fletcher told her staff to expect a "harrowing report which will have a profound and significant impact on families and colleagues, particularly those working in maternity services". An independent investigation into the trust, stretching back over a decade, will be published this w
