Maternal and neonatal safety: mapping the policy landscape

Project Details


This project, funded by the Policy Bristol support scheme, aims to understand the health policy landscape in the context of maternal and neonatal safety. This follows recent proposals by the UK Department of Health to introduce a ‘Rapid Resolution and Redress’ scheme for severe birth injury, the renaming of the NHS Litigation Authority as NHS Resolution, and the introduction of an ‘early notification scheme’ for severe brain injury incidents. This project will involve interviews with key figures from the maternal health environment to better understand what influences policy formation and explore the evidence base for policy development.
