Officials behind baby deaths cover-up named by NHS watchdog

'Up to 16 babies and two mothers are feared to have died between 2001 and 2012 because of poor care at the Barrow-in-Furness health center in Cumbria.
Former chief executive of Furness General Hospital Cynthia Bower, her deputy Jill Finney and media manager Anna Jefferson were named by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) after public pressure to disclose the individual’s identities has mounted.
British Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said the incident was a “terrible personal tragedy” for the families of patients involved and apologized on behalf of the government and the NHS.'
