In July 2020, the UK Parliament's Health and Social Care Select Committee opened an inquiry into Safety of Maternitys Services in England
AIMS submitted evidence to the inquiry on 29th August 2020.
AIMS' evidence to the Health and Social Care Committee
In our submission we encouraged the inquiry to take a holistic view of the meaning of safety in this context and to focus on a broad set of safety indicators. By this we mean in addition to focusing on reducing the risk of short-term physical -and on occasion fatal -harm to mothers and babies, it is also important to focus onreducing damage to the long-term well-being of mothers, babies and the wider family, including their mental health.
Submissions to the enquiry can be found here
