ULHT maternity services are absolutely thrilled to announce that our Assessment by Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative was successful and we now have Stage 2 Accreditation!!!
The UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative enables public services to better support families with feeding and developing close and loving relationships so that all babies get the best possible start in life. The programme supports maternity services to transform their care. Unicef has an evidence based staged accreditation process for maternity services. Our services were assessed in February by measuring the skills and knowledge of our maternity and neonatal staff. Fifty staff were interviewed and our training records were reviewed. The result was excellent and we have been awarded with Unicef UK Baby Friendly Stage 2 accreditation.
This has been such a huge team effort by all staff, well done all.
