An independent review into maternity services at Cwm Taf University Health Board maternity services has found that there is still ‘a very long way to go’, according to the BBC.

An earlier review of services, carried out by The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in April of this year, had described the health board’s maternity services as ‘dysfunctional’ and identified eleven areas of immediate concern including poor staffing levels and staff not being aware of guidelines and protocols. It further found that a previous report highlighting safety concerns had not been acted on.

The April review had been initiated after 25 serious incidents in maternity care between January 2016 and September 2018.

The latest review has identified that the health board is making improvements, observing that ‘after a slow start, the health board is now beginning to make progress but there is a significant amount of work still to be done and the pace of progress needs to be increased.’
