The Maternity and Neonatal Safety Improvement Programme (MatNeoSIP), was renamed following the launch of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy in July 2019. It was previously known as the Maternal and Neonatal Health Safety Collaborative.

MatNeoSIP is led by the National Patient Safety team and covers all maternity and neonatal services across England. It continues to be supported by 15 regionally-based Patient Safety Collaboratives.

The programme aims to:

  • improve the safety and outcomes of maternal and neonatal care by reducing unwarranted variation and provide a high quality healthcare experience for all women, babies and families across maternity and neonatal care settings in England
  • contribute to the national ambition, set out in Better Births of reducing the rates of maternal and neonatal deaths, stillbirths, and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 50% by 2025.

During the session

We will keep participants muted whilst speakers are presenting. This avoids distracting speakers and also reduces sensory stimulation which is important for some people. However, if you wish to ask a question this can do this by adding it in the chat box. Please feel free to turn cameras on and off as you need to. If you need it off the whole time, that is totally fine.

If you need a break at any time during the session then please leave the meeting and re-join again when you feel ready.
