In line with recommendations made by HIQA in its 2020 Overview Report of its monitoring programme against the National Standards for Safer Better Maternity Services, the National Women & Infants Health Programme (NWIHP) has produced a revised implementation plan for the National Maternity Strategy covering the remaining period of the Strategy’s lifetime from 2021 to 2026. The plan has been finalised and submitted to the Department for review. With regard to the plan's publication, as this is a matter for the National Women & Infants Health Programme, I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
