Better maternity services at Newham University Hospitals NHS Trust

22nd January 2009

The watchdog said the trust had provided more beds, more staff and better management of risk in a report that outlined progress following a formal review of the Newham service in 2007. The investigation came after almost 800 women were not booked for antenatal care appointments in late 2006 and early 2007, despite being referred for this service. There were six key recommendations made from an initial visit by the Commission.
