Cancellation of events until end of May 2020

We are very sorry that, in light of the current global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all of our conferences, courses and events taking place before the end of May 2020.

As outlined in our booking conditions, we regret we are unable to refund any delegate travel and/or accommodation costs if an event is cancelled.

We therefore recommend booking flexible tickets and accommodation where possible for upcoming events that have not yet been postponed or cancelled.

Please see our coronavirus events FAQs for more information

This meeting is an opportunity for Each Baby Counts Lead Reporters, Reviewers and other healthcare professionals with an interest in clinical governance and risk management, to hear first-hand the findings emerging from the RCOG’s flagship quality improvement project to reduce avoidable harm in labour.

The meeting will feature final information on the themes that emerge and the lessons that can be learned from the care of babies born in 2017. In addition, we will present updated information relating to the quality of local reviews into the care of these babies. There will also be presentations providing up-to-date information on national work-streams and opportunities to get involved in the day through interactive sessions.

Each Baby Counts programme launched in late 2014 and is the RCOG’s national quality improvement project with an aim by 2020 to halve the number of babies who die or are left with severe brain injury as a result of something going wrong during labour.
