Continuity of Carer Teams

Following the National Maternity review – Better Births it is clear that models of care where women know the midwife who is caring for them throughout their pregnancy journey, have a positive impact on improving safety, clinical outcomes, as well as a better birth experience. This will also have an impact on reducing pre-term births, hospital admissions, and the need for intervention during labour. HUTH has developed 8 Continuity of Carer Teams and plans are to enable more women to access this model of care going forward.

The hospital currently runs eight Continuity of Carer Teams: Fern Team, Fetal Medicine Team, Forget Me Not Team, Ivy Team, Lavender Team, Linnaea Team (Twins and Multiple Births), Primrose Team and Willow Team.
