Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, our charity has funded a new initiative within Maternity services at University Hospital, Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich.

Our maternity colleagues at the Trust have started wearing new lanyards with their job title to make it easier for patients to understand who is caring for them. The initiative was funded by our Trust Charity and led by Irene Omamogho, Matron for the Maternity Inpatient and Day Assessment Unit following patient feedback.

These brightly coloured lanyards are available in 11 different colours, and will identify key members of staff' job titles, such as- Midwife, Matron, Doctor, Consultant, Administrator, and many more.

Irene Omamogho, Matron for Maternity Inpatient and Day Assessment Unit explained:

We are so grateful to our Trust Charity for their support to our project. With these lanyards, we will enhance the patient experience for the women we care for and ensure they can recognise members of staff who support them throughout their journey in our Maternity Units.

Margarita Vidiella, Head of Charity added: "Our Trust Charity is dedicated to funding projects and initiatives that enhance care for patients, visitors, and colleagues. We are delighted to be supporting this maternity lanyard initiative which was only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. If you are inspired by this project and would like our get involved please contact us.”
