Invitation to participate in the Timing of Birth study: Translating evidence into practice in relation to induction of labour and planned caesarean section

The aim is to uncover and make sense of the perspectives, attitudes and experiences of GPs in relation to planned birth.

We invite all GPs to participate in this study by completing a survey here:
