Commenting on the announcement today of a ‘listening exercise’ on NHS reforms and the formation of a 'NHS Future Forum’, Cathy Warwick, General Secretary of the Royal College of Midwives, said: “The RCM has raised a number of major concerns about the broad thrust of many of the proposals in the reforms.
“It is right to stop and reflect and we hope that the midwifery voice will be heard. A real change of attitude and approach is needed on the part of the Government if we are to preserve a high quality NHS.”
