Julie Juliff gave the following update, the key points of which were as follows:

 

·         The purpose of the report was to ensure Value for Money and safe services were the key priorities.

·         The birth rate seemed to have levelled off at present; however the Royal Free, Barnet and University College Hospitals were reporting increased activity this year.  It was not yet clear why this was the case, whether growth is from our boroughs or that people from outside the NCL boroughs accessing the service may be contributing to the situation.

·         JJ’s role is to assist the North Central London CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) to commission and monitor outcomes , as well as participate quarterly reviews into maternity for each Trust.

·         A maternity dashboard had been implemented this year which indicated Trusts’ performance.  All outcomes put onto the dashboard were now being reported on.
