Have your input into the Neonatal Critical Care Review by joining the BAPM webinar. Professor Marlow will present an overview of the review journey to date and then take questions. You can submit a question during the webinar or send a question in advance to BAPM Office. Questions will be put to Professor Marlow by the chair.
In 2016 the National Maternity Review, “Better Births”, highlighted a number of concerns linked to neonatal medical and nursing staffing numbers, nurse training, the provision of support staff and cot capacity, and to safety and sustainability. It was recommended that a review of neonatal services was undertaken.
Professor Neil Marlow (Chair), and the members of the Neonatal Critical Care Clinical Reference Group were therefore commissioned to carry out the Neonatal Critical Care Review, supported by the NHS England Women and Children’s Programme of Care Board (WCPCB). The Neonatal Critical Care Review gathered evidence, examined key aspects of neonatal care and engaged with experts from across the system. The findings of this evidence review have informed the development of recommendations for changes aimed at improving neonatal care and addressing the concerns raised in the National Maternity Review.
The Neonatal Critical Care Review team are currently seeking the input of a wider group of experts through experience (families and parents), clinicians and NHS England staff at a series of stakeholder events. The aim of these events is to listen to what interested professionals and parents tell us about these services. Following these events, the final action plan will be developed over the next month.
