Identifying risk in antenatal care

We're waiting for Laila Devro to read a recent response and update the status.

Hello,
I would like to make the following FOI request:

1) How many pregnant women receving antenatal care by your trust were rated/considered to have
a) a low risk pregnancy (- or whatever the equivant term is your trust uses to describe an uncomplicated pregnancy)
b) a high risk pregnancy ( - or whatever the equivalent term is your trust uses to describe a complicated pregnancy)
in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019,
and how many of these women were first time mothers-to-be? Please provide numbers as well as percentages for women in each category.

2) How many women of the women who were considered/rated
a) low risk
b) high risk
went on to delivery their baby/babies prematurely in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, and how many of these babies died?

3) How many of the women considered/rated low risk (or whatever the equivant term is your trust uses to describe an uncomplicated pregnancy) who were exclusively cared for by midwives and/or sonographers during the antenatal care they received by your trust, without receiving care from specialist obstetrics until they presented in labour, went on to deliver prematurely in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019?

4) How many pregnant women receiving antenatal care by your trust were cared for by midwives and/or sonographers only initially and were subsequently referred to obstetric specialists before they went into labour in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019?

If your hospital trust is responsible for the management of several maternity units, please provide numbers for all of them.

I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours faithfully,

Laila Devro

Dear FOI-REQUESTS (UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS PLYMOUTH NHS TRUST),

thanks for your response. However, I struggle to understand your refusal to provide any numbers of deaths. Dozens of other hospital trusts were able to provide this information, which is an absolutely crucial part of this enquiry and overwhelmingly in the public interest.
Further, I asked you to provide numbers as well as percentages of the women in all categories, and you have only provided numbers.

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards
