NHS Maternity Report

The Guardian has an article on the recent review of Britain's maternity services. Well worth the read.

Perhaps even more interesting is the letters to the editor published yesterday, including one that references an 1845 health care quality reporting law, which led me to find this outcomes report from the 1850s.
