Over £100,000 is coming to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn to improve the digital service for maternity patients.
It will let the hospital upgrade its Maternity Information System which lets those preparing to give birth to access their care records via a system on their smartphone, get access to information, and receive reminders about screening, immunisation and appointments digitally.
This will also help the clinical team have access to the latest technology too within the maternity department, as an added way to enhance care.
Amanda Price- Davey, Head of Midwifery at the hospital, said: “We are absolutely delighted we have been granted funds via the Digital Maternity Fund to help us make necessary improvements for our service users and colleagues. Having access to modernised technologies means we can continue to provide safe practice, improve care and empower patients and birthing people.”
