Sir Bruce Keogh, the medical director of the National Health Service is due to be interviewed as part of the investigation into University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust. The investigation follows a series of damning reports which said major failings means the deaths of mothers and babies were not properly investigated. A panel has been looking into midwifery care at Furness General hospital after a report by the health ombudsman identified serious errors in the care provided. Investigation chairman, Dr Bill Kirkup, a former deputy chief medical officer at the Department of Health, said interviews would be held in the presence of families only due to “sensitive and personal clinical matters”.
