Patterns of maternity care in English NHS trusts 2013/14

"This is the second report that the RCOG has published describing patterns of maternity care practice and outcomes within the English NHS using data routinely collected by NHS hospitals. The first report presented a set of clinically relevant and technically robust indicators, developed by a panel of clinical and methodological experts. It revealed that NHS maternity units in England were achieving similar outcomes but that there were large degrees of variation in some areas of practice. This second edition revises and extends the suite of indicators, thereby aiming to improve the quality of information available to NHS maternity services to use for performance assessment and quality improvement."
