Redbridge Hospitals Trust nurses shortlisted for national award
A team of midwives have been shortlisted for a national award.
The midwifery bereavement team at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) have made it to the last three in the Royal College of Midwives 2013 awards.
The team – who care for women giving birth at both King George Hospital, Barley Lane, Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital, Romford - are in the finals of the Rewarding Excellence in Bereavement Care category.
The team of three care for and support families who have experienced a late miscarriage, still birth or neonatal death.
As well as supporting the women while they are still on the labour ward, they also visit families at home after their loss.

The team also offers unique clinics for mums-to-be who have lost a baby previously.
They run four clinics a week offering specialist care to pregnant women who have had to deal with a still-birth or neo-natal death, giving them intensive support and offering them many more scans than usual.
