Maternity services reform urged14th July 2011
Proposals being led by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) want maternity services to be radically reformed so that women receive the best care in the right place.
In a letter to The Times, the RCOG said more midwifery-led units should be created so that women with low-risk pregnancies can give birth outside of hospitals and that consultant units should also be cut so that senior doctors can provide more 24-hour care to maternity patients. The letter from RCOG president Dr Anthony Falconer is co-signed by five other leading health experts.
