‘Labour Line’ launches at the PRUH
The Maternity Services team at the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough launched the ‘Labour Line’, a telephone line for pregnant women who think they may be in labour and are booked in to have their babies at the hospital or at home. The number is 01689 864189
The ‘Labour Line’ is a support and advice service, run by experienced midwives, for women who feel that they are in labour. Women will be advised to come into hospital for assessment, or to wait at home a little longer and ring back as necessary.
The line is open seven days a week, from 7am to 7pm. Outside these times, women can still call the maternity unit where they are booked in to have their baby for advice if they think they are in labour: either the Labour Ward/Delivery Suite on 01689 864839, or the Oasis Birth Centre on 01689 864750.

Local Care Record (LCR)
The recent UK Department of Health Information governance Review (Caldicott 2) has put additional emphasis on the duty to share clinical information. It recognises that patients expect health professionals to share information with other members of the care team, who should co-operate to provide a seamless, integrated service. To meet the healthcare needs of patients throughout their journey in primary, community and secondary care services, local healthcare professionals need to work together with access to all appropriate information. The overall aim is to ensure there is an appropriate balance between the protection of the patient or service user's confidential information, and the sharing of such information to improve patient care.
