Responding to the publication of the final report of the Independent Review of Maternity Services – the ‘Ockenden Report’, Zena Young, Executive Director of Nursing and Quality for NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG),said: “We deeply regret the horrific experiences these families went through and that we failed to provide the care they deserved.

“As a CCG, we are committed to offering the best health service to the people of Shropshire. We have improved the way we hear the experiences of women and families using maternity service and have also invested in funding for the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust to support increases in maternity staffing levels, which now match nationally recommended staffing levels.

“We will work with our partners across the health and care system to ensure that further improvements are made in light of this report, and will continue to take all actions necessary to ensure women who use our maternity services receive the best care.”
