News – 01 October 2016


Hello and welcome to the October news update!

We are delighted to inform you that we’ve expanded our recruitment for the women’s views study, which means we are looking for more mothers (18 and over), who have had a baby in the last 12 months to share their views and experiences of continuity of care as provided by midwives and health visitors in England. A massive thank you to all who have taken part so far. As a small thank you, you will receive a £5 Amazon voucher at the end of the interview. To participate, click here.

The interview study with midwives and health visitors aiming to explore their views and experiences of working in partnership with each other in maternity services in England & Wales is still ongoing. We’ve interviewed 16 midwives and health visitors (in total) so far, and we are still looking for more participants for this study! We are especially interested in hearing from midwives and health visitors in Wales. A huge thank you to all who have taken part so far, and have supported the #COPEProject by way of sharing information about this study. To be eligible to take part, you will need to be a currently registered and practising midwife or health visitor. To participate, click here. Midwives’ information page is here, and health visitors’ information page is here. A gentle reminder that when disseminating information about this study, please remember to refrain from sharing via NHS routes/settings (including NHS intranet), in line with our ethical approvals. Sharing via personal contacts/networks and social media is highly encouraged. Remember to use the hashtag #COPEProject when posting on social media. 🙂

Our project was well-received and we are very grateful for everyone’s support. Below are some photographs from the conference:
