The Scottish Executive is committed to constantly improving care provision, and the Framework for Maternity Services and Expert Group on Acute Maternity Services (EGAMS) set out clear ways for this to be achieved. The Scottish Executive fully endorses the Quality Improvement Scotland (NHS QIS) standard that each woman receives one-to one midwifery care during established labour and childbirth by a trained midwife, or trainee midwife under supervision.
