STRUCTURE: A review of maternity capacity in the Birmingham and Solihull area began this month.

April board papers for Birmingham Women’s Foundation Trust show that the chief executive Ros Keeton was asked by the Birmingham and Solihull primary care trust cluster to lead on the project.

Ms Keeton’s statement to the trust board said: “I chaired the first meeting of the new project group on 10 April and am pleased to report that the meeting was very well attended and provided a forum for some very positive discussions around maternity pathways and ways in which we can start to scope the high level work programme.

“I subsequently fed back on those discussions to the CEO Forum on 17 April and I am pleased to report that the project work was endorsed.”
