The announcement follows the statement by Alan Cameron, Vice President of clinical quality at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Guidance at the Royal College of Midwives conference in Telford earlier this week that 100 babies die every week due to stillbirth and neonatal death.
The UK has one of the highest rates of stillbirth in Europe and the Government will be working in partnership with consultants, midwives and other experts to ensure that every mother and baby receives the best and safest care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors we are committed to helping people who have suffered as a result of clinical negligence. We welcome the announcement by the Health Secretary today and we represent many parents who have lost their child or children who have been injured during or soon after birth.
Victoria Fullilove is part of our specialist team who have in-depth knowledge in these areas and she is committed to providing quality advice to our clients in such difficult circumstances. Her comments on today’s announcement were:
“It is appalling that the UK has one of the highest rates of stillbirth in Europe. Many cases that I am involved in highlight that many stillbirths, neonatal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth can be avoided with even the slightest improvement in the care that women and their babies receive. It is welcome news that additional funding will be made available for new equipment and training. Many parents that I work with often have many unanswered questions as to what happened to cause the death of their child and it is therefore also pleasing to see that a new system will be put in place for the review of every stillbirth and neonatal death”.
