Urgent Support for Scotland's Midwives

As an amendment to motion S5M-17191 in the name of Monica Lennon (Urgent Support for Scotland’s Midwives), leave out from "understands that only" to end and insert: “agrees that the contribution of 600 NHS staff, 600 maternity and neonatal service users, the NHS, the Royal College of Midwives, the National Childbirth Trust and Bliss, along with others, was instrumental in shaping the five-year plan for maternity and neonatal care; recognises that this expert input led to the plan taking a phased approach; further recognises that the initial budget of £12 million is only intended to support the initial phase, including implementation of the new model of continuity of carer at five early implementer sites across Scotland, and believes that the plan is the right way forward and, if fully and appropriately resourced, will result in mothers and babies being offered a truly family-centred, safe and compassionate approach to their care, with real continuity of care and carer.”

Supported by: Jeane Freeman, Joe FitzPatrick
