Maternity services in Doncaster and Bassetlaw have won £444,000 of government funding for a new information system that will dramatically increase the amount of time midwives can spend caring for women rather than doing paperwork.

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has estimated that a staggering 12,483 hours a year of midwives’ time could be freed up by the new software, which is being part funded by the Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards Technology Fund.

The software will replace the current system under which midwives handwrite all their clinical notes on paper forms and then have to input them manually into an electronic system.
