Subject:       Oxytocin use for augmentation



Following up to 2018-650 – FOI Request – Maternity care provision, I wonder if it’s possible to know the rate of oxytocin use for augmentation (i.e. used when labour is considered slow, not to induce labour).




Unfortunately we are unable to provide this information. This is due to the code for induction of labour and augmentation of labour being the same.
