Being assessed by a midwife or maternity healthcare professional within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy is linked to better health outcomes (see Section 2.6 of the download of this section). City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has a lower rate of people being assessed within this time frame than England, London or any of Hackney’s statistical peers for which data is available (Figure 19).

Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Islington CCGs did not meet data validation criteria.

Figure 20 shows that City and Hackney CCG’s rates of people being assessed within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy have fluctuated over the period Q1 2013/14 to Q3 2014/15, but have remained at or below the England value.
