Helen is a senior midwife with a passion for transformation projects, initially seconded to North West London Strategy and Transformation Partnership as a Project Manager within the Maternity Early Adopters Programme (2017- 2018) Helen has gone on to lead the team through the next phase of maternity transformation.
Committed to collaborative systems working, Helen has been instrumental in bringing a diverse range of service users, maternity and allied workforce together to support the system wide implementation of Better Births (2016) recommendations. Projects that she has worked on for North West London include; implementing continuity of carer, personalising maternity care, improving postnatal care, establishing service user groups across the sector and evaluating maternity transformation. Within the digital arena Helen led the team in the design and build of the North West London Mum & Baby app – a personalised digital toolkit to support women and their families through pregnancy, birth and beyond. The app has been widely applauded for incorporating the recommendations of Better Births and is now being made available across England for other regions to personalise to their local needs.
