It was good to meet representatives of the Royal College of Midwives to talk about the latest annual assessment. Although this shows an increase in midwives, there is still a long way to go to recruit more.

Commenting, Sir Oliver said: ‘Midwives do a wonderful job as mothers all over the country will testify. Their calm professionalism at an important emotional time is legendary. I congratulate them on their work and it’s good to see an in increase numbers.’
