Call for Moray maternity concern to be addressed quickly
25 February 2020 – BBC News

A report into maternity services at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin has described clinical governance as “not fully functional“, and also described “dysfunctional and damaged” working relationships.  It did, however, find “no evidence of a trend in adverse outcomes for patients“.

The externally-led review was commissioned due to fears over safety.

NHS Grampian is working to find a “safe and sustainable” model of maternity services and accepted the report’s recommendations.

The Royal College of Midwives in Scotland has called for the issues to be tackled quickly and effectively.
