Breastfeeding

The London Breastfeeding Services Mapping Project: mapping local services, demographic and outcome data

In 2009, ChiMat, working with Children's Services mapping and NHS London developed a methodology for mapping breastfeeding services in London. The outputs were tools to map service data with demographic and outcome data to assist PCTs and other stakeholders to plan and commission evidence-based breastfeeding services based on local need and what works on the ground. The mapping data should be used alongside the Department of Health Guidance for commissioning local breastfeeding support services (2009) and the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative guidance on Developing a Breastfeeding Strategy (2009).

Predictive Modelling

PREview: supporting progressive universal prevention and early intervention programmes.

PREview is a new predictive modelling tool that looks at maternal socio-economic and healthcare data, and uses joined up thinking to address the future needs of the child. A population tool is being developed to aid commissioners in mapping the population against future outcomes, and proactively plan the provision of prevention and early intervention services accordingly. PREview supports decision making at team and community level (including PBCs).

It supports professionals to match the Healthy Child Programme and other preventive services, with those indicators that signal future outcomes for individual children and families. It enables parents to think about their child's future and plan what services can do to help them to maximise their child's potential.
