Our policy around multiple births
Besides our campaign to raise awareness, we have an outcome-based regulatory policy to reduce multiple births.
We set a maximum multiple birth rate target and allow clinics to develop their own strategy for reducing their multiple birth rate to meet that target. Clinics can choose the approach that suits their practices and patients, whilst giving them something to aim for.
Our inspectors monitor each clinic’s progress and give them early warning if they are likely to miss the target. The inspector and the clinic work together to bring the rate down.
