Families sue Furness Hospital over baby and maternal deaths

Help

More than 30 families are taking legal action against a hospital in Cumbria blaming poor care and medical negligence for a catalogue of baby and maternal deaths and injuries.

Furness General Hospital is at the centre of the scandal which is now the subject of a number of investigations including a police inquiry.

The trust which runs it, says it has made significant improvements in the last year.
