HQIP has commissioned MBRRACE-UK to develop and establish a standardised National Perinatal Mortality Review Tool (PMRT) on behalf of the Department of Health (England), and the Welsh and Scottish Governments. The tool, which is being designed with the involvement of bereaved parents, will be free for use by NHS maternity and neonatal units in England, Wales and Scotland. It is being piloted this summer and is scheduled to launch by the end of 2017

The main purpose of the tool is to enable high quality reviews of the circumstances and care leading up to cases of stillbirth and neonatal death
