About this event

We are pleased to announce that NHS Resolution will be holding a face-to-face national maternity conference, Collaborate to improve maternity care: respond to, learn from and prevent harm, on Monday 28 November 2022 at the Royal College of Physicians. The conference will run from 09:30am-16:30pm with registration from 09:00am. We will be inviting representatives from maternity teams from across England to our clinically focused event.

The conference will be co-chaired by Gill Walton CBE (CEO & General Secretary, Royal College of Midwives) and Professor Dame Lesley Regan (Non-Executive Director, NHS Resolution and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Imperial College London).

We will hear from a range of NHS Resolution experts including our Early Notification team.

  • Professor Tim Draycott – Professor of Obstetrics, Bristol NHS Trust, Vice-President Elect, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG)
  • Dr Katie Cornthwaite – ABC Clinical Fellow, RCOG
  • Mrs Pauline Hewitt – RCM Impacted Fetal Head Project Midwife & Lead Midwife for Delivery Suite, Gloucestershire Royal Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dr Jo Mountfield – Vice President Workforce and Professionalism, RCOG

  • Ms Jyoti Sidhu – Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, National Obstetric Clinical Fellow, NHS Resolution, Early Notification Scheme
  • Professor Neil Greenberg – Professor of Defence Mental Health, King’s College London

Our programme is a practical exploration of maternity safety, in particular sharing learning from families and trusts through the lens of our maternity work. The full programme will be released closer to the day.

Poster competition

We would like to showcase the work of trusts within the maternity safety space through contributions to our poster competition. We are inviting each trust to submit an abstract outlining any quality improvement projects at your organisation, particularly relating to antenatal or intrapartum care. We will select a number of abstracts from those submitted and will ask the successful trust teams to create and send in a poster design before the conference. Successful posters will be displayed at our conference and delegates will be able to vote throughout the day for the best poster. If you’d like to enter the competition, you can find out more on this page.
