Abstract

This report summarises a feasibility study for further research to increase the understanding of the causes of the high rates of stillbirth and infant mortality in East London in order to inform action aimed at reducing them. The project consisted of three parts, a review of previous research and published data, analyses of routine data derived from notification of births to women living in City and Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham and a review of case notes at the Homerton University Hospital and the Royal London Hospital relating to late fetal losses and terminations, stillbirths and infant deaths. Fuller reports are available separately for the literature review, the case note review and the analyses of routine data for each of the three boroughs.
