The Trust commissioned an independent review of its women’s health services from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in 2015 to gain an expert and independent view that would inform the actions needed to improve the service.
The Trust received the report in February 2016 and reported receipt at its next public Board meeting.
The findings of the review were used to openly manage improvements in the Trust’s maternity services. Following an extraordinary Improvement Plan Delivery Board attended by representatives from NHS Improvement, NHS England, Public Health England and the CCGs, the recommendations of the RCOG report were embedded into the Trust’s improvement plan for action and monitoring, and progress on this was routinely reported to the Trust Board in public.
