Written answers (Question to Health)

The National Women & Infants Health Programme is working on a range of measures to improve the quality and safety of maternity services. A key objective is the establishment of a maternity-specific Serious Incident Management Forum in each Hospital Group. I am advised that the establishment of Serious Incident Management Fora is underway across the Hospital Groups and I have therefore asked the HSE to reply directly to you with regard to the current status of this process.
