Maternal and Perinatal Health

CEMACH runs an integrated maternal and perinatal programme of work building on that inherited from CESDI and CEMD.  This includes Maternal and Perinatal Mortality Surveillance, Saving Mothers’ Lives (an ongoing case review of all maternal deaths) and national and Local Audit Projects.

The overall aim of this enquiry is to improve the health of mothers and their babies by identifying patterns of practice or service provision related to adverse outcomes and making recommendations for improvement.

The maternal and perinatal health programme is advised by a national, multi-sectoral panel of experts known as the National Advisory Committee for Enquiries into Maternal and Perinatal Health (NACEMH). 

The NACEMH is chaired by Professor Ian Greer, Dean of the Hull York Medical School.
