It is the responsibility of care providers to investigate all serious incidents that take place under their jurisdiction.

Data from the Strategic Executive Information System (STEIS) shows that a total of five serious incidents involving still births were reported by Northampton General Hospital since 2010. Where a small number of cases exist the Department is unable to provide further details as the disclosure of such information could breach an individual’s confidentiality.
