National Health Service providers are responsible for delivering safe services and ensuring that staff receive the training they need to provide the highest standard of care.

Health Education England (HEE) allocated £420,000 to directly support maternity safety training in 2019/20. No funds were directly allocated to be spent on maternity safety training in 2018/19 or 2020/21 by the HEE maternity programme.
