The workforce planning system; Birthrate Plus® (Ball and Washbrook 1996) is based upon:
- The principle of one to one care in labour and delivery cited as the standard of care in several government reports (Short 1980, Winterton1992, Cumberlege 1993)
- A classification for intrapartum care which uses clinical indicators to assess the level of need of both mother and baby

Birthrate Plus has also been implemented in non NHS services in the Channel Islands and in Eire, and more recently in Australia.
