Maternity Review 2010
On 2nd April 2010 the Minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety announced a comprehensive review of maternity services.
A project Board has been established with Professor Cathy Warwick, General Secretary of the Royal College of Midwives and Dr Paul Fogarty, Royal College of Obstetricians, co-chairing the review.
The Project Board will review current maternity services and bring forward recommendations in the form of a regional strategy by October 2010, for the delivery of high quality, safe, sustainable, accessible, women-centred maternity services in Northern Ireland.
- The review will consider the current provision of services for women at each stage of their pregnancy, including ante-natal care, delivery and post-natal care.
- The review will consider the quality and safety of these services in the context of current standards both nationally and internationally.
