Protecting human rights in childbirth

Six months on and still no response from OUH on maternal request caesarean policy…

Our Chair, Elizabeth Prochaska, has today written to Dame Fiona Caldicott, Chair of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to urge her to hold her board to account over the lack of response to a letter sent in July, asking OUH to clarify important details surrounding its maternal request caesarean policy. It is somewhat surprising that an NHS Trust that is accountable to the public, should feel able to ignore a serious request for information, made on behalf of local women, and we look forward to receiving a substantive response by the 3rd January.

The full letter to Dame Caldicott can be found here.

  1. There is a new Medical Director starting at OUH
    Soon, Meghana Pandit – she is a gynaecologist
    By background so hopefully she will bring a fresh
    View and see that this is unacceptable for women.
