Diabetes in pregnancy


This is a case study of the maternal and neonatal quality improvement project delivered by Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

This case study describes how the improvement team at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust developed an individualised care plan for high risk babies to ensure a clear pathway of care, as part of their participation in the maternal and neonatal health safety collaborative. The case study focuses on babies born to mothers who have pre-existing diabetes or poorly controlled gestational diabetes, and details possible progression to babies who have other risk factors for developing neonatal hypoglycaemia. The case study explains the context, aims, method and approach, outcomes and learning points from the trust's quality improvement work.
