By , Science Correspondent7:00AM GMT 24 Mar 2014The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.

Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.

Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’

At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.

The programme, which will air tonight, found that parents who lose children in   early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to   energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’

Another ‘waste to energy’ facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private   contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.

They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating   energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by   cremation.

“This practice is totally unacceptable,” said Dr Poulter.

“While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that   must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now   been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay.”

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director, has written to all NHS trusts to tell   them the practice must stop.

The Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, has also written to the Human   Tissue Authority to ask them make sure that guidance is clear.

And the Care Quality Commission said it would investigate the programme’s   findings.

Prof Sir Mike Richards, Chief Inspector of Hospitals, said: “I am disappointed trusts may not be informing or consulting women and their families.

“This breaches our standard on respecting and involving people who use services and I’m keen for Dispatches to share their evidence with us.

“We scrutinise information of concern and can inspect unannounced, if required.”

A total of one in seven pregnancies ends in a miscarriage, while NHS figures  show there are around 4,000 stillbirths each year in the UK, or 11 each day.

Ipswich Hospital Trust said it was concerned to discover that foetal remains   from another hospital had been incinerated on its site.

A spokeswoman said: “The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust does not incinerate foetal   remains.”

She added that the trust “takes great care over foetal remains”

A spokesman for the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said  that trained health professionals discuss the options with parents ‘both  verbally and in writing.’

“The parents are given exactly the same choice on the disposal of foetal   remains as for a stillborn child and their personal wishes are respected,”   they added.

“NHS’ medical director has written to all NHS trusts to tell them the practice must stop and Chief Medical Officer Sally Davies, has written to the Human Tissue Authority to “ask them make sure that guidance is clear,” the Telegraph reports.”

“The Department of Health has issued an immediate halt to the practice and Health Minister Dr. Dan Poulter has called it “totally unacceptable.””

So it’s ok to kill the babies and consider them medical waste, but not ok to dispose of them as medical waste? You can’t have it both ways. Why would it be totally unacceptable, if it’s not a human being?
