Midwife named clinical lead at Connecting for Health

  • Comment
NHS Connecting for Health has announced the appointment of a midwife as national clinical lead (NCL), as part of plans to involve a wide range of healthcare professionals in the National Programme for IT (NPfIT).

Julie Tindale, who is currently maternity information system manager at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, will be tasked with showing midwives the direct benefits they can gain form the NPfIT programme.

Julie recently secured funding to pilot the use of mobile technology in her community, so that midwives can access whole PCT systems, aiding early detection and referrals for problems.

She said: ‘My role now is to talk to midwives and educators, to find out more about their needs and also how current good practice can be integrated with the new systems. It is vital that midwives are supported to make the most of these opportunities.’
