Health and Social Care Editor

The senior midwife who delivered a hard hitting report into failures in maternity care at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust has said she would be willing to conduct another urgent inquiry into services at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, where a number of babies and women have been harmed or died.

Channel 4 News has learned that Donna Ockenden told families she would be honoured to lead the inquiry.

Bereaved parents have made a request to the health secretary who now has to approve the appointment.
