New standards for maternity records

The Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) is seeking views from women who use maternity services, parents, health and care professionals and industry representatives on what clinical information should be recorded and shared in maternity records.

Your participation in this survey will help us develop a standard for the clinical and care information that should be shared in a maternity record during the antenatal period of care before a woman gives birth. The standard we produce following this consultation will help people involved in women’s maternity care and women themselves to share information quickly and easily.

The standard is being developed in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians’ Health Informatics Unit on this project as well as the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Royal College of Midwives, The Royal College of GPs and NHS Digital.

The draft standards have been developed following a workshop and informed by a consultation workshop held at the Royal College of Physicians on 9 November 2017.

The results will inform the final draft of the maternity record standard. The Professional Record Standards Body will seek endorsement of the final draft from its membership, which is made up of patient and carer, health and care professional and industry organisations.

    Last month, @NHSDigital published a new ISN to support safe transfer of medicines info between settings. The ISN is based on UK Core FHIR Profiles, developed directly from PRSB info standards for meds and allergies. We're proud to have played a role in the ISN's development 👇 https://t.co/nZGbw5MZOd
