PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) is an evidence based multi-professional training package for obstetric emergencies. It is associated with direct improvements in perinatal outcome and has been proven to improve knowledge, clinical skills and team working.

The PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF) is a multi-professional group of obstetricians, midwives and anaesthetists based in the UK. PMF strives to make childbirth safer through training, education and research. Our aim has always been to make evidence based multi-professional obstetric emergencies training available to all.

PROMPT Maternity Foundation Spring Ball May 2016

The atmosphere was amazing at the PROMPT Maternity Foundation Spring Ball held at the Bristol Royal Marriott Hotel on Saturday 7th May 2016.  With beautiful white blossom adorning the tables, 226 people enjoyed a sumptious evening meal and fabulous entertainment in the shape of 'Ear Candy' Live Band, a close up magician and caricaturist in the stunning venue which opended up onto an outdoor terrace.  The Max Crofts Auction and the 'Silver' and 'Gold' Prize Raffle were a huge success and resulted in the evening raising £4,400 for the Charity.

The PROMPT Team would like to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone that supported this event by attending or buying the raffle tickets - we couldn't have done it without you!.   A huge thank you must also be extended to our many donators of prizes - they were fabulous.
