Maternity Unit 'Has Improved'

Inspectors have decided a maternity unit criticised after the deaths of two babies is now meeting the required standards.

The Care Quality Commission say the department at Milton Keynes Hospital's made enough progress so conditions put in place to monitor the unit can now be lifted.

Interim Chief Executive Mark Miller hopes this will set mums-to-bes' minds at ease: "Although we have said we are convinced we have a safe unit, the fact that the Care Quality Commission are formally acknowledging that as well must be reassuring for mums.

"What we've achieved is where we should have been.  We all know within Milton Keynes Hospital that we've still got lots to do around getting the level of service across the board to the level that we want and the people of Milton Keynes want."

In a separate report the hospital's been told to improve patient privacy, the way it keeps records and improve cleanliness and infection control.
