This framework is designed for use in postnatal care settings including the delivery suite, postnatal ward and transitional care unit. It describes at-risk groups and provides an updated Newborn Early Warning Trigger and Track (NEWTT2) chart aligning to current recommendations for newborn care and acknowledging feedback from healthcare professionals.
The chart encompasses parental concern to acknowledge the importance of the opinion of the family in addition to the wider multi-disciplinary team. The inclusion of parental concern supports concerns highlighted and recommendations made in recent national maternity investigations.
