“Nottingham maternity services could move under new plans”
By Sandish Shoker BBC NewsPublished 3 days ago MARCH 2022
…..But Jack Hawkins, whose child died in the womb after mistakes by maternity staff, said just moving services would not address bigger issues.
Maternity services in Nottingham are currently the subject of an independent review after being rated inadequate by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The review came after reports 46 babies suffered brain damage and 19 were stillborn between 2010 and 2020.
Mr Hawkins, who is part of a group of 80 parents taking part in the review, said: “It is a great opportunity to work closer together but just doing that is not going to solve the problem they have. The geographical locations of the services is not the issue.
“The opportunity to work closer together as a team is great *because teamwork is one of the things that sorely needs improving between doctors and nurses. *
”But our biggest concern is accepting that they need to work differently and that they are an inadequate service.”
