The BBC has reported that a number of senior midwifery staff at the troubled Trust have been put on leave as investigations are undertaken into maternity services at the hospital.

At the end of last year an enquiry into maternity services reported its interim findings. The Ockenden Review had investigated 250 out of the nearly 2000 cases referred to it. These cases include the deaths of both babies and mothers during childbirth.

The investigation was prompted by concerns about the level of care in the maternity services at the Trust with concerns about neonatal deaths, baby brain damage and poor-quality care.

The government has recently also launched a broader inquiry into maternity services across England which has been collecting evidence into what it describes as ‘ongoing safety concerns with maternity services’.
