The PROMPT Maternity Foundation received funding from the Welsh Risk Pool to introduce PROMPT training and implementation support to twelve maternity units in Wales with the aim to train 100% of multi-professional staff within one year of rollout of local training. 

Two Train the Trainer (T3) days were held in Bridgend, Wales in May and June 2018 with multi-professional attendance from each of the 12 maternity units with excellent feedback and participation.

National Launch of PROMPT Wales in Cardiff - October 23rd 2018


The PMF team, along with the PROMPT Wales team, Welsh Risk Pool and the Maternity Network were joined by the CMO for Welsh Government, Dr Frank Atherton and CNO for Wales, Jean White, where PROMPT Wales was officially launched. Demonstrations of PROMPT drills were presented at this event with a networking session followed in the afternoon which was a great success.

Implementation Support

PMF's multi-professional team led by Sophie Renwick (Clinical Obstetrician) and Jane Storey (Midwife) provided ongoing implementation support to the 12 individual maternity units providing a multi-professional ethos and ensured PROMPT training and drill facilitation remains authentic in each unit - see our photos from Glan Clewd Hospital, Betsi Cadwaladr UHB, Glangwilli Hospital and the Royal Gwent Hospital



Safety Attitude Questionnaire Data

Data collection has been undefrtaken with broad representation from Midwives, Obstetricians, Anesthetists and HCAs across Welsh Units.  The paper forms have been inputted into a spreadsheet for analysis by our statisticians and a report will be generated in due course. The second round is planned for 2020.

National Dashboard/Clinical outcome measures for PROMPT Wales

Baseline clinical outcome data has been gathered by PMF for all health boards in Wales, working with local dashboard teams, National Data (NWIS), and the Wales Neonatal Network which has been shared with the Heads of Midwifery.

Patient Experience Research

Data collection has been completed with Sophie and Jane having sent questionnaires to all the new mothers who gave consent in the postnatal period at Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen just prior to or shortly after the unit began their local PROMPT courses. We await responses.

Abstracts on PROMPT Wales were submitted to SWOGS (South West O&G Society) and SWAPS (Swansea Perinatal Symposium), in May 2019 and we are delighted to report Sophie Renwick won the poster competition for PROMPT Wales. Here with Dr Madhu Dey and Dr Nil Sengupta from the PROMPT Wales Implementation Team.
