• Total neonatal deaths to 28 days
• Total preterm births (<37 weeks)

Yours faithfully,

Hi Julia I can see that you are conducting research on maternity services. Could I suggest that in the case of BCU and may be applicable to other Health Boards that yiu ask how many maternity NEVER events have occurred, how many North Wales patients had to go out of the area for speciality maternity support- ie to the Countess of Chester, Arrow Park or Alder Hey. Also how many maternity clinical negligence case have there been. Critical data for holistic picture of the maternity services.
Regards
Jane
