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 am a huge fan of LocumDeck and the platform you’ve built is just fantastic. I used it a few years ago and returned to locuming again recently, and the platform has evolved into something even better.

When I came back to locuming, I wasn’t sure how I'd find work, so I decided to turn on Instant Book and see what happened. Within 30 minutes, I was fully booked for the next month, I was delighted!"
