Trouble in store for Furness Hospital Trust

10/11/11: Several families are planning to sue a hospital trust in relation to claims of negligence on a maternity ward.

Solicitors specialising in medical claims have revealed that they are preparing claims on behalf of several mothers who had been treated at a centre in Barrow. Representatives have commented that each case is progressing separately; however one of them has already been submitted to the Royal Court in London.

This news is another blow for the Furness hospital trust, which has also been put under special review by the CQC and has been told that they face closure if standards are not improved.

The UHMBT is being investigated due to higher than average mortality rates as well as delayed treatment because of a debacle in their appointment system.

2 MPs have demanded a governmental response to the maternity scandal, appointment debacle and high mortality rates which have sunk the trust into crisis.
