NHS Employers have commented on the findings from the Royal College of Midwives’ ‘State of Maternity Services report 2013’ .

Commenting on the findings of the Royal College of Midwives’ ‘State of Maternity Services report 2013’ published today, Sue Covill, director of employment services at the NHS Employers organisation, said:

“Recent changes have helped hospitals and other providers to become more involved in planning their workforces effectively. The 5,000 midwives currently in training will make a substantial contribution to the delivery of high quality care to mums and babies.

“The role of midwives is essential, of course, but maternity care is provided by a wider team and it’s getting the whole mix of staff right that will give the safest and best experience.”
