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 MYHT as clinical lead for the project, and Judith Holliday, Head of Research (MYHT). The team also includes a coordinator, research midwife and data management specialists.
