NHS trust caused Barrow family ‘unnecessary distress’
Last updated at 11:20, Wednesday, 14 March 2012
A GOVERNMENT watchdog has ruled a hospital trust caused a grieving family “unnecessary and unjustifiable” distress in its handling of an incident.
Have your say
Mr Titcombes admirable efforts have hopefully helped prevent another family experiencing such awful negligent care again.This was an extremely sad preventable loss of precious life due to lack of care. However, he has been instrumental in improving the care for future mothers and babies on FGH maternity ward. Well Done!I was really upset when I had my baby, at the poor standard of care delivered by some of the midwives on the maternity ward. Some were very uncaring and unfriendly. The maternity ward at FGH has been desperately in need of dramatic changes for years.
The story above and the comments made by Bruce perfectly display the twisted mentality that exists in some areas of the NHS. I think Mr Titcombe has shown great restraint under what must have been a very frustrating and upsetting time. I do wonder now what will become of those involved in the lies told to him?
I wonder where our local MP John Woodcock and his pregnant wife will choose to have their baby, given the current controversy surrounding Furness General and in particular it's maternity services...?
