The best start: five-year plan for maternity and neonatal care

A five-year forward plan for the improvement of maternity and neonatal services in Scotland.


I would like to express my gratitude to my fellow Review team members, the Sub-Group Chairs, as well as all of the members of the Sub-Groups for their time and commitment in working with me to conduct this Review. I would also like to acknowledge the substantial support from the Secretariat team who have worked tirelessly to support the Review. Your expertise, advice, perspectives and enthusiasm have been invaluable.

I would also like to thank the hundreds of staff, parents and voluntary sector representatives who took the time to contribute their views and perspectives to the Review. These thoughtful contributions have shaped the report and recommendations that follow.

Jane Grant
