Midwifery Unit Managers completed surveys in 2008 and 2014 to determine methods of induction of labour. There was an increase in balloon catheter use for cervical ripening (rate difference 37%, P = 0.007). Currently, all respondent hospitals have an oxytocin protocol; district hospitals had a significant increase in use of post‐maturity protocols (rate difference = 40%, P = 0.01) but there was no change in use of prostaglandin protocols.
