Tamba Publish World-First Report

Earlier this year, the Twins & Multiple Births Association (Tamba) published their world-first report on maternity unit engagement for twins and multiple births. Select were pleased to provide statistical support for Tamba on the project, which worked with 30 maternity units across England to ensure that mothers expecting twins, triplets or more were treated in line with the NICE (National Institute for Care and Excellence) multiple pregnancy guidance.

We helped Tamba to analyse the data collected from each unit, to understand whether there were any associations between actions taken by the units in improving their adherence to the NICE guidelines and changes in patient outcomes.

Tamba estimated that the NHS could save £8 million within one year of implementing the guidelines if all units in England achieved similar improvements in care practice, as there would be substantial reductions in neonatal admissions and emergency c-sections.
