Quotes

A spokesman for the Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust said of the case, which has been adjourned for the time being, that: "While no direct patient harm was found to have been caused, the midwife in question was deemed to have displayed serious and significant failings in her professional duty of care."
Marion said: "Despite the national picture of reduced funding for mental health, I am determined to ensure that what money is available is spent well and that ideas for maintaining and improving services are generated by everyone involved with the Trust."
One message he sent said: "Just to ask. Do you fancy coming over to sleep with me? I DON'T SNORE"
"Further, Ms Forbes had failed to co-operate with the Nursing and Midwifery Council's investigation into her fitness to practise in that she did not respond to the letters sent to her."
