Sarah Noble is Head of Midwifery at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust in Warwick, which is part of Coventry and Warwickshire Local Maternity System. She was invited by Baroness Cumberlege in 2015 to be one of three midwifery representatives on the National Maternity Review and contributed to the publication of the Better Births Report (2016). Sarah advises on several national groups including the Maternity Transformation Stakeholder Council and the Continuity of Carer Subgroup, and is the National Clinical Midwifery Lead for Work-stream 3 – Choice and Personalisation. She is also currently working with NHSE to design a workforce continuity of carer modelling tool.
Sarah is passionate about improving both the safety and experience of expectant families, through relational based care with a known midwife and maternity team. She believes that maternity care must play a larger part in building social capital to achieve sustainable outcomes. South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) has reflected in their strategy the belief that all women booking for maternity care at Warwick should know their midwife and maternity team. SWFT has taken a system-wide approach and is embedding teams across their whole maternity service. The midwifery practice teams have moved from the GP surgeries, which are based in Community Hubs, and working closely alongside other partners who support pregnant mums, babies and families. The aim is to effectively use community assets, and build social connectively amongst parents and local communities to help build healthier futures for children.
