Safer maternity care: next steps towards the national maternity ambition

The Department of Health has published a plan in support of its ambition to halve rates of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or shortly after birth by 2030.

The plan sets out the various measures that will be used to make NHS maternity services safer, such as a £250,000 maternity safety innovation fund, published maternity ratings for CCGs to enable benchmarking and a new national quality improvement programme.
