Cwm Taf Health Board investigate deaths of babies


The Health Board said that in the past 3 years, 26 babies have died at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, Prince Charles hospital and at home.

The Director of Nursing acknowledges that there have been problems recruiting and retaining maternity staff but is reviewing paperwork of these sad losses to ensure that the services provided are safe.

The Health Board has appointed 15 new midwives and a consultant midwife.

Any further information arising from the investigation will be shared in full with the families concerned.

Jane Rogers of JMD Law said:

“The open approach taken by the Health Board is a step in the right direction in providing the best possible care for women and their babies.

Whilst the outcome of the investigation is awaited, if you are one of the families affected you can contact Jane Rogers on 02920 456780 for advice.
