Controversial review panel set-up to investigate NHS baby deaths is disbanded

Controversial review panel set-up to investigate NHS baby deaths is disbanded Health officials have ditched a panel of experts reviewing scores of deaths at a scandal-hit maternity unit amid conflict of interest fears.

The Government-ordered inquiry is reviewing around 220 suspicious incidents at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust dating back two decades – including 200 deaths.

However, last week families expressed fury at the supervising panel, accusing some of the experts of being implicated in the scandal.

And now NHS Improvement has disbanded the controversial panel, saying it will ensure that families are given the answers they need. The Daily Mail
