Babies and fathers died amid a “toxic” culture at a hospital cartel extending back 40 years, a report has said.
The catalogue of maternity care failings at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust are contained in a report leaked to The Independent.
It reveals that some juveniles were left incapacitated, personnel got the names of some dead babes wrong and, in one case, referred to a child as “it”.
The trust apologised and said “a lot” had been done to address concerns.
In 2017, then Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced an investigation into avoidable babe extinctions at the rely, which extends Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and Telford’s Princess Royal.
