CQC report reveals deaths of two women under Queen’s Hospital maternity care in a month
Two women under the care of Queen’s maternity unit died last November, this week’s Care Quality Commission’s report revealed.
The fact is only mentioned in passing in the second half of a paragraph on page 9.
It states that investigations into the deaths had not been concluded at the time of the inspectors’ visit.
A spokesman for the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust said: “The commission’s report refers to two maternal deaths which took place last November.
“In both cases, the women sadly died during their pregnancies.
