A struggling hospital trust said improvements are ahead of schedule after catastrophic failures were found in its maternity services.
A report by Donna Ockenden into the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) found 201 babies died due to failing standards of care.
It made 15 recommendations and detailed 210 actions for the trust to deliver.
At a board meeting on Thursday, the director of nursing said improvements were "above trajectory".
A report prepared ahead of the board meeting said by May 2023 SaTH ought to have implemented 113 of the actions and it had managed to evidence 148 actions had been delivered.
