ACTUAL DELIVERY PLACE

This is the actual place type of delivery. Recording both the planned and the actual place of delivery allows all changes of intent to be logged. Note that if a baby is delivered in a different hospital to the one originally specified, there would be no change in the delivery place type, since the birth would still have taken place in an NHS hospital.
