Identifying and managing clinical risks in newborn babies

As babies with complex health needs require specialist care from different clinical teams, the journey of care for their families can be daunting, demanding and emotional as they navigate pathways of care between services. A lack of consistency in care and communication between staff and services themselves can result in poor outcomes for both babies and families.
