Read about the professional links GPCPC has made with other organisations working in the field of perinatal care:
Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA)
GPCPC became a member of the MMHA in February 2023. Member organisations of the MMHA work together to create tools and opportunities to raise awareness of perinatal mental health (PMH) problems and help drive much-needed change to ensure the mental health needs of women and their families in the perinatal period are met.
This partnership is really important as it provides GPCPC the opportunity to regularly engage, interact and collaborate with PMH organisations across the UK. GPCPC will be working with the MMHA to produce educational events and content around PMH and Dr V Silverwood will attend regular MMHA meetings as the GPCPC representative.
The MASIC Foundation is the only multi-disciplinary UK charity to support women who have suffered severe injuries during childbirth known as OASI (Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injuries). The charity is run by injured women and healthcare professionals who are committed to better detection and prevention of injury during childbirth.
This partnership is really important as it strives to increase General Practice awareness of these injuries. GPCPC will be working with the MASIC Foundation to produce educational events and content around OASI.
