Maternity Services at Peterborough City and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals have been shortlisted in the Patient Safety Awards 2021.

The team’s entry ‘Hypoxia in labour tool,’ has been entered into the Maternity and Midwifery Initiative of the Year category. A total of 8 hospitals, including North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, have been shortlisted as finalists. The Patient Safety Awards celebrate teams who continue to push the boundaries of patient safety and passionate about driving cultural change to minimise risk and enhance quality of care. Due to the current situation the  second stage of judging will be taking place online via Zoom and will consist of a 10 minute presentation, giving three reasons why the individual should win, followed by a further 10-15 minutes of questions from the panel covering the entry and presentation.

Ruth Tobin, Fetal Monitoring Lead Midwife at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust said:  “I am incredibly proud of the maternity team at our hospitals and the way in which they have embraced change in order to improve safety for the women and babies. The team continues to strive towards giving the best, evidence based practice.” 

Dr Manjula Samyraju, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Safety and Intrapartum lead at the Trust said:  “We are committed to delivering improved outcomes for our patients, and to be chosen among the other incredible nominees is a wonderful achievement.  This nomination has been a tremendous boost to staff at our organisation and I am sure it will bolster our continued efforts to improve our services to pregnant women.”
