||<p>We have not set a definitive timescale for the duration of the maternity investigations.
As we said in our response to the Joint Committee’s report ‘Draft Health Service Safety
Investigations Bill: A new capability for investigation patient safety incidents’,
the Department’s view is that the best approach is to allow the current maternity
investigations programme to complete its rollout to all healthcare regions in England,
which is now complete and will continue for a limited period so that the learning
and benefit can be gained from these investigations.</p>
