January 2024 – Update Newsletter

Update on the Review Chair, Donna Ockenden

Donna is undergoing major surgery on Tuesday 9th January and expects to return on Monday 19th February 2024. Please be assured the Review will be proceeding as normal while she is away and our office remains open Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm. All of our clinical team will continue working and reviewing maternity care. To aid in Donna’s recovery we ask that all communications come via our office and not directly to Donna.

Meeting with a member of the review team

You have the option to provide further information about your case if you wish. If you have not already let us know whether you have more information to share, and your preference to do so, please email us. Your options are below.

Options for sharing information

If you have any information you would like to share with us that you have not shared already, this can be done by email, post or by meeting with a clinical member of the review team. This can be done either virtually or face to face in Nottingham. Depending on your preference, you would just need to either send us additional information via email or post, which will be saved into your family folder to be viewed alongside your medical records OR let us know your preference for a virtual or face to face meeting with a member of the team. We will then proceed to arrange this for you. A transcript of this meeting is then created, finalised with you and saved securely into your family folder for the clinical team to view alongside your medical records when a member of our team reviews your care.

No further information to share?

If you prefer not to provide any information, that is of course fine. We will review your case using only the hospital records available to us.

I am waiting for my meeting

If you have requested a meeting with a member of our team and you have not yet been contacted, please do not worry. We assign these meetings on a first come first serve basis. Please do bear with us as we have a high demand for family meetings — you have not and will not be forgotten. As soon as we have availability for your family meeting, we will be in touch.
