Ombudsman welcomes new midwifery law coming into force

Following the midwifery legislation changes to modernise midwifery regulation coming into force today, Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman Julie Mellor said:

Our recommendations have become a reality, which will help ensure that lessons are learnt when mistakes are made, improving the safety of mothers and babies across the country.

‘These vital changes came about as a result of the brave families who came to us seeking justice after suffering harrowing ordeals. We owe them all a debt of gratitude.'
