Due to the national effort to support the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic, as of 24 March 2020, the Patient Safety Measurement Unit (PSMU) has suspended data collection from trusts. It is therefore not necessary for trusts to upload monthly data or highlight reports to this portal.

Phase 2 of the Maternal and Neonatal Safety Improvement Programme was launched on 9 March. For the time being, only essential and coronavirus-related activities, including maternal and neonatal deterioration improvement work, will continue.

Your data remains valuable to us and is crucial to evaluating the National Patient Safety Improvement Programmes. We will be in touch as soon as we can about how future data collection and reporting will take place. Thank you for your support.


The Patient Safety Measurement Unit supports the maternal and neonatal safety collaborative to evidence improvement and assess impact achieved through its ambitions to:

  • Support maternal and neonatal care services to provide a safe, reliable and quality healthcare experience to all women, babies and families across maternity care settings in England
  • Create the conditions for continuous improvement, a safety culture and a national maternal and neonatal learning system
  • Contribute to the national ambition of reducing the rates of maternal and neonatal deaths, stillbirths, and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 20% by 2020
