Specialist teams are looking into allegations that some babies born at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust over a 17 year period (between 2000 and 2017) suffered avoidable harm due to errors made by maternity staff. Their mothers too may have been subject to the same negligence.
It is understood that over 100 families have now come forward requesting investigation.
This all follows an inspection during the summer into the Trust's maternity services which highlighted a number of safety fears.
