Reducing admission of full term babies to neonatal units

Reducing admission of full term babies to neonatal units We want to reduce harm leading to avoidable admissions to neonatal units for babies born at or after 37 weeks.

We've identified that over 20% of admissions of full term babies to neonatal units could be avoided. By providing services and staffing models that keep mother and baby together we can reduce the harm caused by separation.

We want all maternity and neonatal services to work together to identify babies whose admission to a neonatal unit could be avoided and to promote understanding of the importance of keeping mother and baby together when safe to do so. NHS Improvement
