PERIPrem

PERIPrem (Perinatal Excellence to Reduce Injury in Premature Birth) is a new perinatal care bundle to improve the outcomes for premature babies across the West and South West regions. The bundle will consist of a number of interventions that will demonstrate a significant impact on brain injury and mortality rates amongst babies born prematurely.

The bundle is the first of its kind, and builds on lessons learned from designing and delivering the PReCePT (Preventing Cerebral Palsy in PreTerm Labour) project as well as being clinically owned and driven by perinatal staff across the region. It will support maternity and neonatal units in implementing or improving innovative elements of care that will contribute to a reduction in brain injury and death in the smallest and earliest born babies. Links to each of the bundle elements can be found below.

West of England Academic Health Science network is delivering PERIPrem in partnership with The South West Academic Health Science Network and The South West Neonatal Network. We are working with Health Innovation Network (HIN), British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) and other organisations to ensure the PERIPrem bundle is at the forefront of innovation and the latest evidence.
