Maternity safety training funding
Health Education England (HEE) has announced plans to distribute £8 million across the country to support the vision of making NHS maternity services among the safest in the world.
The announcement follows a commitment made by the Government in November 2015 to reduce 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.
