Cathy Warwick, General Secretary of the Royal College of Midwives, has lodged a petition, asking the Government to recruit 5000 extra midwives into the NHS in England.
‘Our argument is that the work has increased to such an extent now that midwives really can’t offer the highest quality care that women in this country should certainly be able to expect. That matters because there is now an increasing body of evidence that indicates that aspects of care which midwives specifically offer are really important to high quality outcomes,’ she says.
The petition closes in a few days’ time.
