Full description:

This project will be looking at the number of babies born before arrival (BBA) at hospital and looking to see how many of these are cold on arrival to hospital, and what the outcomes are for these babies. We will also be looking at the advice given to callers around keeping babies warm when they are born outside of hospital. You would be asked to attend up to four meetings (virtually) , to have a chat about your views on the research, as well as providing feedback on a few documents.
