Justin Madders responds to Ockenden Review of maternity services publication

Justin Madders, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the publication of the Ockenden Review of maternity services said:

“This is a heart-breaking report that lays bare the tragic consequences of a catalogue of failures in maternity care.

“Strong leadership, challenging poor workplace culture, safe staffing and access to training are all key to improving safety and we must work to ensure this is in place right across the NHS.

“Patient safety must a priority for both health professionals and Ministers, and the tragedies outlined in this review must be learned from and acted upon swiftly by all maternity services so that all women and children receive the best possible care.”
