Maternity team wins international award

By Adrian Curtis

The Rosie Hospital has gained an international award after four years of hard work to earn it.

The maternity service at the hospital, which is part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has been fully accredited by the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative

The global initiative, set up jointly with the World Health Organisation, provides a practical and effective way for health services to improve.

The programme works with public services to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding and to strengthen mother-baby and family relationships.

The award is given to hospitals after an assessment by a UNICEF team, which checks that recognised best practice standards are in place.

Acting head of midwifery, Amanda Rowley, said: “I am incredibly proud of my team which has worked tirelessly over the last four years to earn this accolade.”

Staff are planning to mark the accreditation with the unveiling of a plaque.
