NHSI accused of ‘cover up’ over maternity deaths investigation | News | Health Service Journal


NHS Improvement, two royal colleges and the Care Quality Commission have been accused by a mother who lost her baby of trying to cover-up the findings of an independent investigation into a trust’s maternity services.

In an unprecedented move, NHSI has set up a so-called “independent review panel” to review the interim findings of the independent investigation of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals Trust, which was ordered by former health secretary Jeremy Hunt in 2017.

The panel also includes Gill Walton, chief executive of the Royal College of Midwives, and Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. CQC deputy chief inspector Nigel Acheson is the final member of the panel.
