Maternity and neonatal health safety collaborative

Led by NHS Improvement, the MatNeo Collaborative is a three-year programme to support improvement in the quality and safety of maternity and neonatal units across England.

Patient Safety Collaboratives across the country are working in collaboration with NHS Improvement to offer training and coaching to teams within maternity and neonatal units and supporting them to undertake their own local improvement projects.

Project overview

The maternity and neonatal health safety (MatNeo) collaborative has 5 clinical priorities:

  • Proportion of smoke-free pregnancies
  • Optimisation and stabilisation of the very preterm infant
  • Detection and management of diabetes in pregnancy
  • Detection and management of neonatal hypoglycaemia
  • Early recognition and management of deterioration during labour and early post-partum period

The South London MatNeo Local Learning System

The Local Learning System is an essential part of the MatNeo collaborative. It is an opportunity for different parts of the system to come together, share, learn and collaborate.

It has three main aims:

  • Enable sharing and learning peer to peer across organisations and professional groups
  • Increase local quality improvement capability and confidence
  • Facilitate system-level collaboration and improvement

Please get in touch if you are keen to get involved.
