Podcast: Hospital trust pleads guilty to unsafe care and treatment of baby Harry Richford who died at seven days old

A Kent hospital trust has pleaded guilty to the unsafe care and treatment of a baby who died at just seven days old.
In the first case of its kind in the UK, East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust was taken to court by the Care Quality Commission following the death of Harry Richford in 2017.

An inquest last year heard about a catalogue of failures by staff at the QEQM hospital in Margate.
