Maternity team shortlisted for 'Team of the year' by the RCM

The North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups maternity team have been shortlisted for ‘Team of the year’ by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Awards.

The annual awards are a unique celebration of the best and brightest talent in midwifery and maternity care.

Around 30,000 babies are born in North West London each year, to a highly diverse population, cared for by 1,000 midwives. We recognise that in order to keep up with the evolving demands on our maternity services we need to keep changing the way we deliver our care.

In 2016 North West London were selected by NHS England as one of seven areas across the country to test a range of new and innovative ways of working to help transform maternity services.

Our successes have included the launch of a new app for pregnant women, helping women to make more informed choices about where they can give birth in the local area and introducing new information booklets for women during pregnancy, birth and beyond.

The awards take place on 5 March 2019; stay posted to find out the winners. More information on the awards can be found here
