MONITOR requested a diagnostic review to be undertaken of the maternity and neonatal services at the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust following a series of serious untoward incidents, unannounced inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and a review by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in the period 2008 to 2011. The aim of the review was to ensure that all immediate and potential safety risks within the maternity and paediatric services across the Trust had been identified. This included the interface between maternity and paediatric services and the actions required to secure safe and sustainable services in these areas.
