NHS criticised after twins put in separate hospitals

15th March 2010

The mother and father of premature twins are critical of the health service's decision to treat their daughters in hospitals 50 miles apart from each other.

The parents say this gives them only ten minutes with each of their daughters, as they face a 121 mile round trip. Dr Paul Crawshaw, clinical director for paediatrics at the Ashford and St Peter's NHS Trust, Surrey, said: "We always regret the separation of twins and are well aware of the difficulties it is causing the family. We hope to get them reunited in the very near future."
