“The number of cases being reviewed of babies and mothers who may have died or been harmed because of ‘poor care’ at a hospital trust has risen.

Some 23 cases were identified last year as part of an investigation into maternity failings at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust.

It has been confirmed to Sky News the number of cases being examined has increased since the review was first commissioned.

The number of investigations has trebled to at least 60, according to a report in the Health Service Journal (HSJ).

The Journal reports that Trust “has had six separate reviews commissioned into its maternity services with at least 60 cases identified”.

It claims an internal “legacy review” identified “dozens more cases of poor care”.

    We had our daughter at Telford in December last year and everything that could have gone wrong did. My daughter was born lifeless and my other half haemorrhaged severely. The staff reacted swiftly and with utter professionalism like I have not seen since my short time in the army. Their actions meant I now have a wonderful daughter and the love of my life is still by my side. I have nothing but respect and admiration for all the staff on the maternity wards at Telford hospital.
