Bolton hosts first maternity and neonatal conference
Staff from across Bolton's maternity and neonatal departments joined colleagues from across Greater Manchester at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust's first maternity and neonatal conference.
More than 100 people heard from a range of speakers about advances in technology and practice, progression towards continuity of care for pregnant women and their family (where a woman sees one small team of midwives throughout her pregnancy and beyond) and, most importantly, from parents themselves on their very personal experiences of care at Bolton and elsewhere.
The day was described as an "emotional rollercoaster" by one attendee and provided an opportunity for staff from different teams and trusts to share knowledge and best practice with leading experts in their fields.
