NHS England has laid out new plans to improve maternity services and is calling on local areas to road test new ways of working.

The Maternity Transformation Programme has now identified nine working areas to take forward implementation of the recommendations set out in the report of the national maternity review, Better Births.

These include supporting local transformation, promoting good practice for safer care and improving access to perinatal mental health services to make care safer and more personalised. NHS England is calling on local areas to act as early adopters to test a combination of all areas outlined in the programme.
