PReCePT - Using magnesium sulphate in pre-term labour

Giving pre-term babies the best life chances Growing numbers of pregnant women in pre-term labour are having an injection of magnesium sulphate to give their babies the best life chances. This is one family’s story. Through an initiative called PReCePT – preventing cerebral palsy in pre-term babies – all of England’s maternity units are now offering magnesium sulphate thanks to Academic Health Science Networks working with Patient Safety Collaboratives. The Oxford Academic Health Science Network is a partnership of NHS providers, commissioners, universities and life science companies working together to improve health and prosperity in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire.
