High rate of baby deaths just a 'blip' says NHS consultant

The extraordinarily high death rate among babies in Boston is probably just an 'anomaly', according to a leading NHS consultant for Lincolnshire.

Dr Robert Wilson said the shocking figures HERE showing Boston has a higher infant mortality rate than anywhere in England, have already been investigated by his public health department in Lincoln.

Dr Wilson, a consultant with Lincolnshire Primary Care Trust, told The Boston Standard he had concluded it was 'most likely' there had been a 'blip' during the three years when the government study was carried out.
