An award-winning maternity app for expectant mums, funded through Nottingham Hospitals Charity, is on display at a special event in Westminster this week alongside Shared Governance, a charity-funded programme to empower hospital staff to make joint decisions in the interest of better patient care.
The Pocket Midwife app, which received £28,000 Charity Funding is being showcased at Nottingham in Parliament Day, an event organized by the University of Nottingham, to celebrate institutions, businesses and people that make Nottingham great.
Nottingham Hospitals Charity gave £80,000 towards the Shared Governance programme which places frontline staff at the centre of decision-making using nurse and midwife-led councils.
Both will be showcased alongside other health and science innovations on display in rooms, terraces and grounds around Westminster.
Nottingham University Hospitals Trust is leading a Health and Life Sciences Innovation Showcase bringing together leading organisations in the city and county’s health and life sciences sector to display the latest innovations and developments.
Nottingham Hospitals Charity Chief Executive Barbara Cathcart says: “Nottingham is a centre for research and innovation and we’re delighted that Charity-funded projects are on show at this prestigious event.
“Nottingham in Parliament Day provides a unique opportunity to showcase some of the best health and life science innovations that have contributed to putting Nottingham and Nottinghamshire on the map. We are proud of the Charity’s contribution to this, including £7 million towards research projects over the last ten years.”
