Sefton Council has identified a number of failings after a three month old baby named Charlie was found dead at home. The emergency services were called out to an address in south Sefton last May by Charlie's dad. Baby Charlie was found in bed with his mother, asleep and face down. Charlie was blue and not breathing. Paramedics took Charlie to hospital where he was pronounced dead. There were no marks on the baby and there was no evidence that he had been accidentally smothered. When Charlie's mum arrived at the hospital, police and medical staff said that she smelt of alcohol.

She is suing the HSE over what she considers a serious injustice. More than that though, she believes the safety of mothers was compromised by the HSE in a manner that has gone unacknowledged.She was determined that these matters would receive a public airing which would highlight both the nature of her grievance and the safety issues which she believes are paramount.Now that prospect looks to have been denied to her.“I’ve run out of time,” she told the Irish Examiner. “The HSE strategy since I said I wouldn’t settle has been to prolong, to drag their … [Read more...] about ‘I’ve run out of time’: Terminally ill midwife who battled the HSE says her fight is over
