Resource impact statement

No significant resource impact is anticipated

We do not expect this guideline to have a significant impact on resources; that is:

  • the resource impact of implementing any single guideline recommendation will be less than £1 million per year in England (or £1,800 per 100,000 population) and
  • the resource impact of implementing the whole guideline in England will be less than £5 million per year (or £9,100 per 100,000 population).

This is because we do not think practice will change substantially as a result of this guideline, and where clinical practice does change as a result of this guideline, there will not be a significant change in resource use. Any additional costs are likely to be offset by savings and benefits.

Maternity services are commissioned by clinical commissioning groups. Providers are NHS hospital trusts.
