This week saw the publication of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) review, which provides an independent view of health services for mothers and children living in and around the county.

The report also reviews two potential models of care previously identified by NHS Dorset CCG and local healthcare partners. The team identified many good working practices across the county, with a highly committed workforce which is providing excellent care in many areas.

There are however also a number of challenges including resourcing, recruitment of staff and current facilities. The report explores a number of recommendations to ensure services remain sustainable and safe in the future. These include hospitals working closer together for the benefit of local children and parents, and increasing normal births and midwifery led care. Further details can be found at www.dorsetsvision.nhs.uk and our individual report can be read here.
