Another financial pressure on NHS
‘Maternity services in England must become safer, more personalised, kinder, professional and more family-friendly’.  That’s the vision of the National Maternity Review, which published its recommendations for how services should change over the next 5 years.  The NHS England commissioned review – led by independent experts and chaired by Baroness Julia Cumberlege – sets out wide-ranging proposals designed to make care safer and give women greater control and more choices.
