Stop This Toxic Culture

Stop this toxic culture: the truth about Shrewsbury Trust Maternity Services

The Doctors’ Association  UK (DAUK) welcomes the Ockenden Report  and its emphasis on the damaging and damning culture which prevailed in  the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust Maternity services. What is needed, as the Report makes crystal clear, is a shift away from this and towards increasing staffing levels so that people are not put under unbearable and unmanageable conditions – which ultimately derive from decades of underfunding. We are calling on this government to implement the Report’s recommendations: don’t let this become yet another set of shelved promises, or another cudgel to bash the NHS with.
