The Wessex local learning system supports the National Maternal & Neonatal Health Safety Collaboratives ambition to reduce the rate of maternal & neonatal deaths, stillbirths, and brain injuries, that occur during or soon after birth by 20% by 2020.
There are 5 primary drivers to support the national ambition:
• Improve the proportion of smoke free pregnancies
• Improve the optimisation and stabilisation of the very pre-term infant
• Improve the detection and management of diabetes in pregnancy
• Improve the detection and management of neonatal hypoglycaemia
• Improve the early recognition and management of deterioration during labour & early post-partum period
The learning system offers:
The NHS is a large, complex and ever-changing set of organisations which buy and sell services from each other. Without understanding how the money flows, innovators risk focusing in the wrong area.
This free workshop gives an overview of how the NHS works as a market place, and is aimed at innovators from commercial, academic or clinical backgrounds.
Delegates will learn about the statutory NHS bodies and budgets and will practice building a value proposition which is effective for NHS buyers, users and providers.
Co-Hosted by Southampton Science Park and Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and presented by Dr Frank Ratcliff of Wessex AHSN, the Understanding the NHS as a Marketplace event is a free event for innovators and SMEs to come and learn about the local healthcare environment, ask some questions and talk to like-minded people who are trying to access the healthcare market.
A modest £5 deposit to secure your spot will be refunded after the event to all those who attend

The Wessex QI skills lab is being run by the Wessex Q community for the Wessex Q community.
It's a chance for Q members to meet up and to learn a new skill, practice a skill you have used a bit, or teach a new skill to others.
Members of the Q community have a wide range of skills and experience. Some of us have strong people focused skills, some have strong technical skills, and others have great insights into complex systems. All these skills are required for effective and lasting change and improvement – so this is chance to learn more, brush up or pass on your wisdom!
Check out the registration page for details of skills on offer and indicate your preferences as part of your booking.
We’ll then do our very best to give you a great Skills Lab experience!

With term admissions becoming mandated as a focus for all services across the country, this study day is your opportunity to gain a national update, hear local organisations progress over the last year, challenges and presentations of QI PROJECTS.
This study day will also provide information surrounding the regional, ongoing implementation of PReCePT. PReCePT is one of the seven programmes being adopted and spread across the country by all 15 AHSNs during 2018-2020, funded by NHS England. The West of England AHSN is leading on this programme. This work brings together the 15 AHSNs and the aligned drivers of the Maternal and Neonatal Health Safety Collaborative (MNHSC) and the national Patient Safety Collaboratives (PSCs). Together, they aim to ensure at least 85% of all eligible mothers are receiving magnesium sulphate across all maternity units in England by 2020.
