The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists has published the first annual report from the Each Baby Counts initiative.
The report identifies that the quality of local investigations into cases of stillbirth, early neonatal death and severe brain injury occurring as a result of incidents during term labour must improve. 27% of the 921 reports examined so far were classed as poor quality. This is an early brief report which has been released as there are clear messages for improvement identifiable from the interim data.
