Maternity spending increasing

17th September 2009

Research by the Royal College of Midwives has shown that hospital trusts are significantly increasing their maternity spending for the first time in several years.

The figures showed that trusts and foundation trusts are planning to spend an average of 7% more than last year with the move following complaints that maternity funding had not increased despite government commitments. Department of Health budgeting data for 2007/08, the period when extra money was promised, showed that maternity spend had stagnated.
