Launch meeting – RCOG 9th December 2014
Saving Lives,
Improving Mothers’ Care
Jenny Kurinczuk
National Lead – MBRRACE-UK
National Maternal, Newborn and Infant Clinical Outcome Review Programme
Saving Lives, Improving Mothers’ Care
• Anticipation & past anxiety
– Testament to the national collaborative effort in the
continuation of the UK tradition of national self-audit
and critical reflection to improve care for women
• Looking forward
– Learning lessons – putting them into practice and
ultimately improving care for mothers, babies and
families in the future
Mixed news
– Much good news
– BUT lessons to be learnt – improvements in care
to be made – much based on the implementation
of existing guidelines and evidence
– Each death is a personal tragedy for every family
– Between 2009 and 2012 - 321 women died
• The women who died gave birth to 235 infants of whom 173
• The women who died left behind a further 408 surviving
• In total 581 motherless children remain
Today is a day of transition
• Today is the beginning of the end of a process
for us – the process of critical evaluation and
identifying what needs to be done for this report
• For you it is the beginning of the start of a
process – improvement based on the findings
• My personal challenge to you today: is to
identify one thing from the findings of this report
which you can immediately take back and
change in your organisation to improve the care
of women
