However Police launched a probe into the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital in May last year — and have now revealed they are investigating the deaths of 17 babies and 15 non-fatal collapses. The investigation initially focused on the deaths of eight babies. Det Insp Hughes said there was “no set timescales for this coming to a conclusion but we remain committed to carrying out a thorough investigation as soon as possible”. No other details were given at this stage. It will be a difficult investigation and resuts can’t be anticipated.
