PlGF: Where we are and why it’s important


Online event

Speakers include Guy Checketts, Head of Transformation at Oxford AHSN.

Quick, accurate blood tests which can help rule out pre-eclampsia are contributing to safer pregnancies and better outcomes for tens of thousands of pregnant women and their unborn babies. More accurate diagnosis reduces the need for admission and enables a clearer focus on women needing closer monitoring. The pandemic has underlined the importance of safe and effective care, and minimising unnecessary hospital admissions. Within four years of the first real world evaluation in the Oxford AHSN region, more than two-thirds of England’s maternity units have adopted the test into standard clinical practice following a rapid adoption project led by AHSNs. This is a successful example of AHSNs understanding the challenges to adopting new technology and helping the NHS and innovators work together to overcome them. Read more about this work.
