Implementing Better Births

On 28 March, the Maternity Transformation Programme published Implementing Better Births: A resource pack for Local Maternity Systems, to coincide with the National Maternity Review’s ‘One Year On’ event.

In setting out the Five Year Forward View for NHS maternity services in England, Better Births recognised that its vision could only be delivered through transformation that is locally led, with support at national and regional levels.

The resource pack is designed to help Local Maternity Systems to lead and manage that local transformation. It provides advice on how to implement the key deliverables for Local Maternity Systems, and detail on key issues and complementary work that may be required to support these deliverables. For each deliverable, the Pack:

  • Recaps what Better Births says about the issue.
  • Explains what the national programme is doing to provide support.
  • Summarises what Local Maternity Systems might need to do and gives some pointers for how they might go about it.
