Croydon hospital midwife shortage30th November -0001
The Care Quality Commission has ordered Croydon University Hospital to address shortages of midwives in its maternity unit.
It found the number of midwives was insufficient to ensure patient safety or that their needs were met when it visited the hospital, which is run by Croydon Health Services Trust, in February. Other issues included equipment not always being available when required and evidence that staff training was not up to date. The commission acknowledged that the trust was in the process of recruiting additional midwives at the time of its review.
