Midwifery in Scotland.

Abstract

Responsibility for health services in Scotland was devolved to the Scottish Parliament in 1999. This inevitably has led to differences within the UK as to how maternity services are shaped and delivered and aims to ensure that initiatives are tailor made for the Scottish population and its health needs. Changes within the Maternity services have been led and supported by policies such as A framework for maternity services (Scottish Executive 2001) and Keeping Childbirth Natural and Dynamic (KCND) (NHS Quality Improvement Scotland (NHS QIS) 2009) which promotes multi professional working and has developed and implemented care pathways.
