The King's Fund report *Safe Births: Everybody's Business*
The Healthcare Commission has today welcomed the publication of the King’s Fund report Safe Births: Everybody’s Business.
Sue Eardley, maternity lead for the Healthcare Commission, said:
" The King's Fund report provides another important piece of the picture on safety in maternity services in England. It echoes many of the findings from our own work. Our recent review of maternity services across England did not find any NHS trust to be offering an unsafe service, but it did show that changes are needed in the way maternity services are provided. We welcome the practical advice this report offers to trusts in affecting that change.
We note the King's Fund's concerns about the need for a more systematic approach to setting standards for maternity services. We stand ready to work with the King's Fund, the Royal Colleges and others to put those standards in place. "
