The Maternity Team: Better Births Project
Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust | North West
WHHNHS became the first Trust in England to achieve 100% continuity of carer for all births - positively impacting nearly 3K women and their babies and families since then. Midwives have moved out of GP surgeries and women are seen in the communities where they live with a named midwife and measures in place across all pathways to ensure continuity is maintained. Five mixed-risk teams have been launched and are delivering better outcomes, every time. This is critical for our local communities where we know that babies born to mothers in the most deprived quintile have a 30% increased risk of neonatal mortality and the gap between the most deprived and the least deprived quintiles is widening.
