Cwm Taf Maternity Report

Cwm Taf Maternity Report

Following the Cwm Taf Maternity Report, health ministers have ordered services at Royal Glamorgan and Prince Charles Hospitals in South Wales be put into special measures.

Williamsons Solicitors - Clinical NegligenceConcerns were prompted by 25 serious incidents, including eight still births and four neonatal deaths between January 2016 and September 2018. The Cwm Taf Maternity Report said that “Many women had felt something was wrong with their baby or tried to convey the level of pain they were experiencing but they were ignored or patronised, and no action was taken, with tragic outcomes including still births and neonatal deaths of their babies”.

In an interview with the BBC a mother who lost her baby after failures said she was “scared” to use the hospital.

Dr Clea Harmer, chief executive at Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, said: “It is incredibly sad that for so many parents the first time they truly feel their voice has been heard, since suffering the devastation of the death of their baby, is a report into failings at a maternity unit that may have led to that bereavement.”

She highlighted the testimony of one mother, who recalled a woman coming in and saying “‘Just to let you know the baby’s died.’ She didn’t break it gently. Then she just walked away.”

The Cwm Taf Maternity Report also suggested that further cases should be looked at – going back to 2010 “determine the extent of the under-reporting” to provide assurance to the health board.
