PERIPrem stands for ‘Perinatal Excellence to Reduce Injury in Premature Birth’ and is a bundle of 11 interventions launched in 2020 across the South West region that have a significant impact on brain injury and mortality rates in babies born preterm.

Implementation of PERIPrem is being encouraged across the rest of the country to help improve outcomes for premature babies. Backed by Welsh Government funding, PERIPrem Cymru is now being rolled out across Wales.

Helping colleagues to understand more about the PERIPrem approach and what is involved, the Health Innovation Network ran a webinar on 15 December 2023 to provide more information.

The webinar featured Professor Karen Luyt, Professor of Neonatal Medicine; Dr Sarah Bates, Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist; Dr Hayley McBain, Evaluation Lead at Health Innovation South West; and Nathalie Delaney, Senior Programme Manager at Health Innovation West of England.

They explored:

  • The evidence base – what does the data tell us?
  • The PERIPrem story so far
  • The evaluation findings – what are the ingredients of successful implementation of PERIPrem?
  • Adaption and spread.
