‘Baby deaths’ midwife struck off

An ex-midwife from a maternity unit where 11 babies were judged to have died unnecessarily has been struck off over the deaths of two of them.

Marie Ratcliffe had admitted she “made mistakes” that contributed to the deaths of the two babies at Furness General Hospital.

Ms Ratcliffe accepted 68 charges relating to 14 patients.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) concluded the “only appropriate sanction” was a “striking off order”.

The panel said her actions, relating to a period between 2004 and 2013, were “fundamentally incompatible” with her remaining on the register.
