Let's hope there's a change for the better following this report and that families are listened to in the future and their concerns taken seriously.
The midwifery regulator took too long to act on concerns about midwives at a hospital which may have led to "avoidable deaths", a report has said. Eleven babies and one mother died at Furness General Hospital in Barrow, Cumbria, between 2004 and 2013. A Professional Standards Authority review said the Nursing and Midwifery Council failed to react quickly enough to concerns from police and families. The NMC has apologised and admitted its approach was "unacceptable".
