Enhanced Maternal Care – The Yorkshire & Humber experience

Sarah Winfield

I work as a Consultant Obstetrician and am based at Leeds General Infirmary. I have a special interest in maternal medicine and high risk obstetrics and I run the Obstetric Cardiac and Renal Service in this tertiary referral centre. I also work with the Diabetes team and am part of the twice weekly Diabetic Antenatal Clinic at St. James’s University Hospital. I see women with pre-existing medical conditions for pre-pregnancy counselling and I participate in the consultant on-call rota at LTHT.

I am the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Network Clinical lead for maternity services and try to link this with my clinical role to optimise what can be achieved to improve maternity services for women and their families in Yorkshire and Humber.
