Post-pandemic recovery of maternal and child health service

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


I was invited to deliver a presentation at The Royal Society of Medicine on behalf of the Parent-Infant Covid Organisational Academic Learning [PIVOT-AL] Collaborative. The PIVOT-AL Collaborative was formed during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, allowing researchers to share learning and develop collaborative research regarding maternity and children's health services. At the event, the shared learning of the research collaborative was synthesised and presented, with a particular focus on recommendations for the re-organisation, re-building, and recovery of a resilient healthcare system in a post-pandemic world. I was invited to deliver the synthesis of recommendations for policy makers. These recommendations brought together evidence-based insights from across the work of the Collaborative supporting the retention of pandemic practices that had improved service provision, arguing for the re-instatement of pre-pandemic practices whose removal had reduced the safety and effectiveness of maternity and child health services, and suggesting which pandemic practices were damaging or unsafe and should urgently be stopped.
