|Guide for use:|
Some models of care are designed for specific groups of women based on a set of agreed common criteria and may restrict access to women not meeting this criteria. These restrictions may be based on geographical area, risk factors, ethnic, cultural or social groups or medical or obstetric conditions. In some cases, a model of care may not have any access restrictions but will still predominantly target a particular group of women. In both of these cases a value of "Yes" should be used.
If a model of care is available to all women without any restrictions then a value of "No" should be used.
|Collection methods:||Data are gathered using the Maternity Care Classification System (MaCCS) data collection questionnaire on an annual basis by every maternity service when classifying their models of care or when a new model of care is introduced.|
