Today, 10th December 2020, we launched the first report of the independent review into maternity services at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. The report outlines the local actions for learning for the Trust and immediate and essential actions for the Trust and wider system that are required to be implemented now to improve safety in maternity services for the Trust and across England.

The review was commissioned in 2017 by the then Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Jeremy Hunt MP.  Since the original launch of the review many more families have come forward with concerns about their care.

Donna Ockenden is leading a team of independent health professionals to review cases of serious and potentially serious concern in maternity services at the Trust.  We would like to hear from anyone who feels that they or their family have a potential case of significant concern and ask that they please get in touch by the end of May, 2020.
