Maternity Services LTHTR

The Maternity team at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have adopted and embedded a robust Continuous Improvement approach which has delivered improved outcomes for mothers and babies. The approach was led by the Divisional Midwifery and Neonatal Nursing Director; a Service Development Midwife role was introduced to ensure that improvement was given a priority focus within the team and to provide staff with the support to deliver the ambitious programme. The Continuous Improvement process is fully embedded within the team and staff across the board are able to articulate the vision using improvement language.
