This scaling up programme was a collaboration between the RCOG, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust, the RCM and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), with funding provided by The Health Foundation
Formal implementation of the care bundle in the 16 participating units ended in April 2018. The OASI Care Bundle team subsequently evaluated the merits of the programme and their evaluation papers were published in 2020.
