A key recommendation of Better Births was that NHS England should: “seek volunteer localities to act as early adopters” to harness enthusiasm for change and test the model of care described in the report.
Through a network of support coordinated by the Maternity Transformation Programme, the Early Adopters are now taking forward the implementation of the vision in Better Births, going further and faster, and routinely share the learning from their experiences.
