NICE postnatal care update

NICE postnatal care update

The new guideline from NICE on postnatal care is a bit of a mammoth one, but I highly recommend a quick read through it (it should only take 10 minutes to glance over the useful bits). It really is a one-stop-shop of information. It includes links to many of the other relevant guidelines.

It is aimed at all clinicians, so covers midwife care as well as GP care and it can be a bit tricky to work out what should be done by whom and when.

There are a couple of areas where there is new guidance or a change in practice and I will highlight these first.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
