The NHS is to spend £95million on improving safety in maternity services in England, following on from the first report of the Ockenden Review of maternity services at the Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital Trust (SaTH).
The report outlined the immediate and essential actions and local actions for learning to improve maternity care at SaTH and in the wider maternity system across England.
The additional money will be used to increase the numbers of midwives and doctors in hospitals. There will also be “training and development programmes to support culture and leadership”.
