Maternity learning review: December 2022

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust (UHDB) has welcomed an independent maternity learning review, due to commence in December 2022.

The independent review, which has been commissioned by the NHS Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board and supported by the Trust, intends to consider seven maternity cases as part of the process.

All seven cases have already been individually investigated, but allowing an independent team to now review them collectively will give the Trust and the families involved assurance that we have identified all possible learning, and this is an opportunity that we welcome.

The patients and families of the seven cases have been made aware and will be updated and involved as much as they wish to be.

The Trust is an open and learning-focused organisation and intends to share the learning review’s report when able to do so. This is currently expected to be in the new year.
