'Sign up to safety' maternity project

In June 2015 Kingston Hospital put a bid to sign up to safety project, initiated by the government to improve maternity outcome.

 The aim of the project is to improve birth outcomes for babies by enhancing midwives’ and doctors’ competence in monitoring fetal wellbeing (condition of the baby in the uterus) during the antenatal period and during labour.

Measures of success will include:

  • Increase the number of midwives and doctors with enhanced skills in the assessment of fetal wellbeing.
  • Reduction in the number of babies admitted unexpectedly to the neonatal unit.

A multi-disciplinary team of doctors and midwives have been appointed to deliver the project.

Our approach is to provide senior clinical leadership by delivering:

  • Clinical teaching sessions
  • Weekly multi-disciplinary reflective learning sessions
  • Master classes on monitoring of the fetal heart in labour provided by an external expert in intrapartum fetal monitoring
  • The Sign up to SAFETY project is monitored by a maternity steering group which is chaired by the Clinical Director and membership includes a service user.
