Improve fetal heart monitoring, NHS report says

26 September 2019 – BBC News

The NHS Resolution report examined 96 serious cases out of 197 investigated for liability and wants to find out how future incidents can be prevented.

The report looked at cases of babies born with a potentially severe brain injury following labour, at term, which were reported to the NHS body under a new Early Notification scheme.

The scheme has been running since April 2017 and covers all 129 acute maternity trusts in England as part of a Government plan to halve rates of stillbirths, neonatal/maternal deaths and brain injuries linked with birth by 2025.
