Maternity spending increasing17th September 2009

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.
