Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust

16th January 2016


Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust wishes to extend its deepest sympathies to the family of Frances Cappuccini.

Patient safety remains of paramount importance to the Trust. The Trust has however recognised from the start that there were aspects of Frances’ care that fell short of the standards that the Trust would expect and we wish to once again sincerely apologise to the family for this.

As a direct result of Frances’ tragic death, the Trust has made a number of changes to its processes that have further improved patient safety and experience.

The Trust will carefully consider all of the evidence heard at the inquest to ensure that any necessary changes which have not already been made are fully addressed.

The Trust will continue to do everything that it can to ensure that we provide the highest possible standards of maternity care.
