The MBRRACE-UK collaboration has been commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership to deliver the UK-wide Maternal, Newborn and Infant Clinical Outcome Review Programme. The aim of MBRRACE-UK is to provide robust information to support improvements in the delivery of safe, equitable, high quality, patient-centred maternal, newborn and infant health services.

To meet this aim MBRRACE-UK is carrying out:

Surveillance and confidential enquiries on all maternal deaths in the UK since 2009 together with a rolling programme of confidential enquiries of topic-based serious maternal morbidity.

Surveillance of all late fetal losses (22-23 weeks gestation), stillbirths and infant deaths in the UK from 2013 onwards together with a rolling programme of topic-based confidential enquires of stillbirths, infant deaths and serious infant morbidity.
