Maternity Early Warning System (MEWS)

The Health Quality and Safety Commission has announced the national rollout of MEWS during 2019-20. MEWS  has been developed to help clinicians identify when a pregnant woman’s condition starts to deteriorate, so they can respond quickly. For more information about MEWS, check out this Q&A sheet. Associated resources can be found on the HSQC website.
