A new report published by Caesarean Birth shows that 56% of NHS Trusts set target rates for how women give birth, and 47% set specific target rates for caesarean birth.

Editor Pauline Hull reviewed 312 Care Quality Commission (CQC) maternity inspections of 130 NHS Trusts, and while the report itself makes for a sobering read, it is tempered somewhat by the statement  received from the CQC today.

“Five Years of Care Quality Commission (CQC) Maternity Inspections (2013-2018)
Part 1 TARGET RATES
CAESAREAN BIRTH AND PROMOTING NORMALITY”
