Improving Maternity Services Post Ockenden Report 2022

Monday 12 Sep 2022


Find out more about virtual attendance

The Ockenden report published in March 2022 found that maternity teams were stretched and exhausted. “However, this final report of the Independent Maternity Review of maternity services at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is about an NHS maternity service that failed. It failed to investigate, failed to learn
and failed to improve, and therefore often failed to safeguard mothers and their babies at one of the most important times in their lives.”

This one day masterclass will focus on the report and its conclusions. We will assess how this fits into the new Patient Safety Syllabus and safety within healthcare organisations. We will look at how leadership skills and human factors can be used to make maternity services safer.

  • Learning from the Ockenden report 
  • Improving the Safety Culture in your Maternity Service 
  • Understanding Human Factors in Maternity for improving Patient Safety
