It has been reported by the BBC that there has been a surge of new cases concerning potential maternity hospital failings including mother and baby deaths at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust.
This follows a leaked interim report which identified failures in care stretching back to 1979 to the present day. It is reported that in excess of 200 additional families have contacted the inquiry team.
The leaked report raised issues such as failures to monitor heartbeats during labour, failures to identify issues during labour resulting in babies suffering brain injury and failures to properly treat pregnancy related infection and meningitis.
The report was leaked to the Independent Newspaper who described it as the “largest maternity scandal in NHS history”
