Written answers (Question to Health)

Any protected disclosures submitted to the National Maternity Hospital are a matter for that organisation.

 Section 22 of the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 requires each public body to publish an annual report setting out the number of protected disclosures received in the preceding year and the action taken (if any).  Information regarding the number of any protected disclosures received by the hospital can be accessed through the hospital's website
