Maternity service cuts spark fears of more medical negligence claims

According to a new report by the State of Care, nearly 50% of gynaecology and maternity services are performing below par in England. The survey comes amid growing concerns about the increasing birth rates in the Northwestern region and a national paucity of midwives. Also, there has been a considerable surge in the number of pregnant women in their 40s in England.

The official report adds to concerns over safety for mothers and babies being care for by maternity services, after a series of upset incidents and medical negligence claims. In other words, maternity service cuts spark fears of more medical negligence claims, thus raising the risks of medical blunders.

According to a medical negligence lawyer, shortfalls in care quality can result in disastrous impacts on families and households. Stretched services and stressful staff are often at higher risks of making mistakes that can affect the lives of mothers, babies, and whole families. Physical injuries would be devastating, while many women suffer from severe psychological trauma due to medical negligence that can be prevented.

Though everyone understands these mistakes might come from staff or equipment shortages, pregnant women should know if they would trust these maternity services to ensure the best care for them and the babies. More importantly, it calls for further training for midwives and investment in other maternity facilities to raise the levels of these services.

NHS Resolution, which is the representative of the NHS to handle all compensation claims in England, has recently published the annual report with a quarter increase in the medical negligence compared to the previous year. During 2016 – 2017, parents filed nearly 20 claims per month, which is the highest over the past 11 years.

A recent report by CGC states that while there have been improvements in the perceptions of women of being provided more options in their maternity care, nearly a third of these services should be further improved. In spite of the government’s commitment to more than 3000 new midwives in the country, maternity services are still under pressure as births are becoming more complicated. Also, it seems that the authorities don’t support maternity staff and midwives to offer the best care.

Many experts and lawyers, who act for families across England that have been involved by medical negligence, have called for the engagement of affected families. It is necessary for the NHS to know whether something is wrong with the system. By doing this, they would prevent the same problems occurring to other women and babies.
