BaBi Wakefield has a dedicated team which focuses on data management and analysis.
This team is led by Anne-Marie Henshaw, Director of Midwifery at MYTT as clinical lead for the project, and Judith Holliday, Head of Research (MYTT). The team also includes a coordinator, research midwife and data management specialists.
We work closely with health and education staff who play a huge part in the work. We rely on the collection of routine measures by paediatricians, midwives, school nurses, GPs and health visitors who all have an important role to play in helping to record high quality data for us to follow up.
Midwives across our Trust are the first point of contact for BaBi Wakefield participants.
BaBi Wakefield is a collaboration, supported by Wakefield Research Hub, including:
- Mid Yorkshire Teaching NHS Trust (MYTT)
- Conexus GP Confederation
- South West Yorkshire Partnership Foundation Trust (SWYPFT)
- Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
- Wakefield Council
- Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS)
Wakefield Research Hub has been established for wide strategic collaborative research purposes across our district. BaBi Wakefield is its first substantial venture.
