Anthony May’s apology is the first step to be taken. We act for so many families who have suffered as a result of poor maternity care. Babies have died or been brain damaged, parents have suffered psychological trauma and mothers have suffered obstetric injury. The families that have suffered having received care at Nottingham University Hospital, need someone to take accountability for what they have suffered. For us at Switalskis Solicitors and the many families we represent, actions speak louder than words.
