Throughout this section, much of the information has been gathered from Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (HUHFT), as it is the hospital in which three quarters of Hackney and City babies are delivered (Table 3). However, given that fewer than five City of London babies were born at Homerton Hospital in 2010/11, these findings are not necessarily representative for the City.
|Place of delivery||Hackney||City of London||Hackney and City|
