Maternity Sign Up to Safety Project


Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust's maternity team have been allocated Sign Up to Safety funding to enhance midwives' and obstetricians' level of knowledge and competence in fetal monitoring both in the antenatal period and during labour.

The aim of the Maternity Sign Up to Safety project is to improve birth outcomes for babies born in Lewisham and Greenwich Trust, by implementing different ways of learning within the clinical setting, and enhancing the safety culture.

A team of midwives and obstetricians have been put together to deliver training workshops and bedside training, develop learning packages and competency assessements, and ensure that staff are confident and consistent in their skills with regards fetal monitoring.
