Safety of maternity services in England

Inquiry

This inquiry will examine evidence relating to ongoing safety concerns with maternity services. It will build upon investigations that followed incidents at East Kent Hospitals University Trust and Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust, as well as the inquiry into the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust. 

We will also consider whether the clinical negligence and litigation processes need to be changed to improve the safety of maternity services and explore the impact of blame culture on learning from incidents.
