Milton Keynes maternity unit under fresh scrutiny

4th March 2010

The maternity unit at Milton Keynes General Hospital, which was condemned as “scandalous” after the deaths of two babies, has come under renewed scrutiny after failing to improve standards.

A team of clinical advisers is being sent in to monitor services amid concerns that it has been too slow to resolve problems which led to the children’s deaths. The Care Quality Commission issued a report last month saying the unit still had too few midwives and beds and now Monitor, the independent regulator of NHS foundation trusts, has sent in a specialist team.
