The stories continue to mount suggesting that a full 7 day NHS service is needed to provide the best services in public health. Although the statistics have not specifically linked to lower staff levels, our experience of investigating birth injuries suggests that lower staffing levels is almost always present when a birth injury occurs.

Parents cannot choose the best day of the week for their child to be born. It happes when it happens. Even if a correlation cannot be specifically proven, a 7 day service deserves investment and hopefully the statisitic will change.
