Controversial NHS trust baby deaths panel disbanded

04 March 2019 – IINews

A review panel set up to look at the findings of an investigation into baby deaths at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust over a 20-year period has been disbanded after concerns were raised over conflicts of interest. Families affected welcomed the move saying the “obstruction of truth” had been prevented.

They had threatened to pull out of the inquiry having expressed fury at the make-up of the panel, which had been asked to support a Government-ordered independent review into more than 200 cases of poor care or death at the Trust.
