Hospital investigates stillbirths1st December 2011
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has called in experts from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to carry out an external review after what it described as a significant rise in the number of stillbirths.
So far in 2011, there have 35 cases compared with 21 in 2010 though the hospital says it has investigated each case and none were preventable.
A Trust Board report said the rise in stillbirths became apparent during the summer and the urgent external review was being carried out because of the “lack of evidence as to why this is happening.”
