Speaking about today’s report Suzanne Hardacre, Director of Nursing and Midwifery at Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB said: “We are pleased with the findings of the Panel’s latest report, and the acknowledgment of just how far we have come, and what we have achieved, as a service. Over the last three and a half years our teams in neonatal and maternity services have shown outstanding commitment to our improvement journey and to making positive change for our families. Today’s report demonstrates very clearly the progress we have made, however, we also recognise that this is a journey of continuous improvement, and that there is still more work to do.

“Women and families have always been at the centre of our drive to improve, and it is essential that we continue to listen, learn and improve from their experiences. We know that babies and new families within CTM deserve the very best start in life and, while we will never forget the mistakes of the past, we are confident that the care we continue to provide our communities is safe, professional and of the highest standard.”
