Maternity safety training funding

Health Education England (HEE) has distributed £8 million across the country to support the vision of making NHS maternity services among the safest in the world.

The Government is committed to reducing the number of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 20% by 2020 and by 50% by 2030.

An £8million Maternity Safety Training Fund, distributed through HEE, will support every NHS trust in England to use multi-disciplinary training to improve their maternity safety, with at least £40,000 available for each trust. In return, trusts are asked to commit to key actions to improve safety.
