Area specific guidance for Camden
The focus for maternity services is to standardise early-pregnancy assessment units to improve access and avoid women ending up in A&E. Better Births community hub in Camden (Harmood Children’s Centre) will be a pilot site to test the proposed model for continuity of care. See the Better Births newsletter in Downloads for more information.
