NHS action saves 3,000 more babies’ lives


The NHS in England is saving hundreds more babies’ lives every year than a decade ago and taking action to make services safer.

Professor Jaqueline Dunkley-Bent, the NHS’s first chief midwifery officer, has praised improvements to local maternity services which saw a reduction of the stillbirth rate by more than a fifth (21%) between 2010 and 2018 – meaning 2,900 fewer stillbirths. Recent analysis shows the rate of stillbirths continuing to fall.
