POPPIE is a pilot trial to develop, implement and test a new model of continuity of care for women at risk of preterm birth in South London. It is a collaborative project supported by the NIHR CLAHRC South London, King’s College London, Lewisham CCG, London Borough of Lewisham and Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust.
We want to find out if this model of care is feasible and improves pregnancy outcomes and experiences; and
understand better the mechanisms of impact on maternal physical, psychosocial, neonatal health, and women’s experiences, quality and safety of care and resource use.
