The most recent annual NHS Resolutions report for 2021/22 states that the cost of maternity care claims equates to 60% of the £13 billion spent on all negligence claims by the NHS in the last year.
Additionally, a House of Commons Committee report has shown the NHS is currently facing the worst understaffing crisis in their history, with maternity departments being amongst the hardest-hit. According to the report, the Committee’s maternity safety inquiry advised last year that the NHS needs 2,000 more midwives and almost 500 obstetricians, but there is not yet a deadline from the Government on when this issue will be addressed.
