Consultation and collaboration
We are happy to provide advice and guidance to hospital and community-based professionals regarding the care of patients with pregnancy loss.
In recent years, this has included reviewing patient information leaflets; guidance on policy and practice for sensitive disposal; and recommendations regarding certification of pregnancy loss. We have also been able to suggest wording for a letter which GPs may send to a patient who has miscarried.
We are also often able to advise on potential research studies and/or contribute the patient perspective on steering groups.
We encourage our members to help provide the patient point of view in their local hospitals, either by giving talks to staff and students or by joining joint staff-patient groups, such as the Maternity Liaison Committees.
Please contact us if you think we may be able to help.
While the Miscarriage Association’s services are specialised and unique, we also work together with other organisations and Government departments to make the best use of our joint expertise and experience.
