Laura Nash and Peter Gilmour represented one of two midwives who were accused of failing to identify a serious deterioration in a new mother’s health following a home birth, delaying her transfer to hospital and resulting in her admission to the ITU.

The registrant had admitted one minor charge of 12 alleged. Laura successfully applied to have two charges dismissed at half time, with only two of the remaining nine charges being proved. Following further submissions there was no impairment found.
