A hospital trust has apologised to a woman for failing to admit a surgeon had been responsible for a massive haemorrhage that almost killed her after a Caesarean section.

For seven years, East Kent Hospitals Trust maintained the size of Louise Dempster's baby was to blame.

"It was just continuous lies," the 34-year-old told BBC News.

East Kent Hospitals chief executive Tracy Fletcher promised "to ensure lessons are learned".

I do not believe Fletcher. Fire him and all other people involved in the cover-up.

"Lessons have been learned" is the standard response after every inquiry in Britain.  And they don't even have a red face while saying it.

The size of the baby probably was to blame. There was a mix up between weight in pounds ..and in stones.  The mother claimed the baby weighed 6 pounds…while the hospital recorded it’s weight at Six Stones… which is 84 pounds.       ;

With the exponential increase in managers within the NHS over the last 20 years, the question that continually comes to mind is.. what is it they are managing exactly?
