Abstract

In January 2016 the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) sent a freedom of information request (FOI) to all the NHS trusts in England that have maternity units to ask them how much they have spent on agency and bank staff and overtime for every month in 2015. The FOI also asked about the numbers of hours of staff time this equated to. This report follows on from the RCM’s report on agency spending in maternity units between 2012- 2014 which was published in February 2015. 123 trusts responded to the FOI giving a response rate of 91.1%
