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.

Tribute to Christopher Eskell (CEO)

It is with great sadness that the Trustees would like to share the news that Christopher Eskell, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF), sadly passed away on the 25th October 2016.

No words can adequately describe Christopher's contribution to creating our charity and his work underpinning all of our successes. He was the Chief Executive Officer of PMF for the past 5 years and thanks to his skills and dedication. 

We miss him greatly already, but are determined to continue our work, as was his wish. Christopher’s meticulous organization and planning has made PROMPT training potentially available for carers of more than half of the births in the world.

We aim to do justice to his impressive achievements and legacy.

Thank you to Christopher and his loving family, from all of the PMF Trustees & members.

Mark James, Chairman of Trustees (PMF)
