Mind the Gap 2021

We welcome the Mind the Gap 2021 report by Baby Lifeline which highlights how COVID-19 has impacted the provision of maternity care training, as well as how hospitals and trusts are struggling to implement NHS strategies to improve equity and equality in maternity care. It is clear that training provision across maternity services   remains a key area of concern.

Earlier this year the Government made a commitment to investing significant additional resources into maternity services. This is a huge stride in the right direction however, more still needs to be done. This report showcases where the gaps in multi professional maternity training remain. The report supports the wider NHS and all maternity services  in  understanding  where their investment and efforts need to be targeted to improve safety in  maternity services for all. 

Mind the Gap 2021 builds on Baby Life Life’s continued work to ensure every birth is safer and to achieve better outcomes for mothers and babies. Read more about Baby Lifeline’s  findings in the report here.
