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 by 60%.

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!
