Help us highlight the role of psychologists on the maternity pathway

28 June 2018

Health Education England wants to improve its understanding of the roles and activity of psychologists and the allied health professions (AHPs) on the maternity pathway from conception through to postnatal care of women and their babies.

This project will Identify areas where AHPs and psychologists are engaged in informing local maternity workforce transformation plans.  

It will also indentify examples of good practice and case studies at various stages of the maternity pathway, and identify opportunities for psychologists and AHPs to support multiprofessional working, including involvement in community maternity hubs.

The Society is engaging with this project and would like your help. We are looking for psychologists to help in two areas:

Expert members to be part of an expert reference group. This group will work on compiling descriptions of the role of psychologists at each step of the maternity pathway. This work will have to be completed by mid-August, so please get in touch soon if you would like to be involved.

Members to provide descriptions or their role, examples of good practice and case studies.

If you would like to help with either of these, please complete the relevant template below and email it to Hannah Farndon by Monday 6 August 2018.
