NHS Wales to implement c-section toolkit

The NHS Institute and the Welsh Assembly have agreed a contract to support the implementation of DQV’s ‘Pathways to Success Toolkit: Focus on normal birth and reducing Caesarean section rates’.

Under the agreement, DQV’s c-section team will facilitate the implementation of the toolkit in every NHS trust in Wales during 2009 at a total cost of £50,000.

Following implementation, each trust will be expected to produce an action plan for reducing unnecessary intervention.

Further information about the c-section toolkit is available from here.
