Creating a Better Future Together: National Maternity Strategy 2016 - 2026

Date: 
2016-01-05
Description: 
Irish maternity services are good and compare well with those in other countries in terms of safety and patient outcomes. Much has been done to improve services in recent years. We have more consultant obstetricians and staff midwives than ever before and there has been considerable investment in new buildings, equipment and units. This will continue with the Government decision to re-locate the four standalone maternity hospitals in Dublin and Limerick to new state-of-the-art hospitals on the campuses of adult teaching hospitals. The new National Women & Infants Health Programme will provide improved oversight and governance of maternity services, raising quality and standardising care
