Vulnerable Baby Service nominated for national Patient Safety Award
The Vulnerable Baby Service team are up for a prestigious
Patient Safety Award for their work in reducing the occurrence of
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in Manchester. Ten years ago
rates of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome were three times higher than
the national average in Manchester. Those figures have now dropped
The Patient Safety Awards recognise best practice and
provide professionals with an opportunity to share their work with
NHS services across the country. The team received a
nomination in the Patient Safety in Paediatrics category for their
initiative 'Safe Sleeping Practice for Infants; Believing and
Communicating the Message'.
Ethna Dillon, Head of Vulnerable Baby Service, will
present the initiative to a judging panel on the 3rd of June. The
winners will then be announced at a Gala Dinner on the 9th of July
at Grosvenor House, London. Best of luck to the team!
