NHS Right Care: Maternity Pack (April 2016)
These packs contains data on a number of disease areas and elements of care. The pack is split by stages along a long term conditions pathway and enables a local health economy to look at an element, for example disease detection or prescribing, across multiple disease areas.

Maternity Services Review (November 2012)
Between November 2011 and November 2012 NHS Wirral carried out a review of Wirral maternity services which evaluated both main providers of maternity services in Wirral to establish comparable evidence of the maternity outcomes and service user experience of both services. The approach included a review of the underpinning literature, case studies of good practice in maternity care, analysis of performance data, an externally commissioned evaluation and ‘patient learning’ and anecdotal evidence from service users.
